Army wants a new gun

image

Now this is my idea of a proper gun ad. BTW the US military is looking for it's next standard model.
Let's hope it is made in America still. I like the old Colt 1911 .45 ACP or the Glock .45 GAP over any 9mm.

The gun safe enough to use as a toy


There seem to be layers of meaning in this ad. On one level, it's just a girl playing with her toys (and her gun). On another level, the doll clearly seems posed in a way to represent a dead person, shot perhaps by the girl who's looking down at the gun in her hand with regret. What's the message here?

Incidentally, wikipedia tells us that Iver Johnson revolvers were used in the assassinations of William McKinley and Robert Kennedy (and the attempted assassination of FDR).

Gun Silencer Bacon Cooker

I've heard about using a car engine to cook breakfast (in fact, that idea is immortalized in Rick Altergott's great artwork for WU -- see the side column), but this is the first time I've seen a gun used for the same purpose.

Idiots That Live Among Us

image
A moron in Pennsylvania shot a gun into his neighbor's house while trying to clear the chamber. He stated in court that firing the gun was the only way he knew to unload it. Some people should not be allowed out on their own!

Shooters

image
No, its not a bar. Shooters is a restaurant in Rifle, Colorado that encourages patrons to bring their guns inside. In fact the waitresses are armed and the business hosts $75 conceal carry classes. I'd advise leaving a tip!

Shotgun Gardening

Shotgun shells loaded with plant seeds. Point, shoot, and watch your garden bloom! There's a Dick Cheney joke in here somewhere. Available from flowershells.com (though currently on backorder). [via HuffPost]
