Joan Peterson doesn’t seem to having a very happy holiday season, because so many of us bought guns for Christmas gifts. I sincerely hope we will continue to disappoint her. This latest hysteria is over a picture of a newborn posed with guns. She asks:
Why take photos like this? Why do some gun owners think that guns and kids go together and then put them together in a photo that goes viral on social media? We have enough examples of children shot in “accidental” and intentional shootings.
Why take photos like this? The reason, dear Joan, he took that photo was to get a rise out of hysterical ninnies like you. Mission accomplished! I am not a fan of the baby’s hand being placed so close to the muzzle of the firearm, but I’m not naive enough to believe the baby is in any real danger. Don’t be surprised when you stick your nose in other people’s business they don’t decide to rhetorically punch it every once in a while.
Also notice that Joan believes all those firearms shown in that photo are dreaded “assault weapons.” Thanks for proving our point that “assault weapons” are any guns that scare you, which is all guns, apparently. It helps in understand the real agenda here.
