CONNECTICUT (PIX11) – Sandy Hook Elementary’s return to classes Thursday made for some awkward news in one Connecticut paper.

The story about students’ first day back in class ran next to an ad for a gun show.

The newspaper, the Advocate of Stamford, is calling this a mistake and quickly issued an apology, but not before readers lashed out accusing the editors of being insensitive.
