After a spate of mass shootings across the United States, one parent who was back-to-school shopping at a Florida mall was outraged to see a display that many are calling offensive, NBC affiliate WESH reported.
A mother, who did not want to be identified, says the store display not only concerned her, but it scared her children.
She said her back-to-school shopping over the weekend was stopped short by the display at Showroom in the West Oaks Mall in Ocoee, Florida.
