GOODLETTSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
The Goodlettsville Gun Shop is joining the growing backlash against Rolling Stone magazine.
The business posted a photo on its Facebook page, showing an image of the magazine's cover riddled with bullet holes.
The store's owners didn't want to go on camera, but they said they did it because they feel it was inappropriate for Rolling Stone to put Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.
Many others around the world feel the same way, claiming Rolling Stone has glamorized Tsarnaev and that he looks more like a rock star than a suspect.
Several stores are now also refusing to sell this issue of the magazine.
Rolling Stone is standing by its choice and says the story on Tsarnaev falls within the traditions of journalism and the magazine's commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage.
