Dear NRA,

I will be very disappointed if I don’t see this work of art on display next week.




P.S. I think I need to find a giant Pennsylvania outline and make buddies with the shotgunners at the gun club.

    I so wish Texas would secede from this tyranny we call a “Union”. I’d move there in a heartbeat.

      That reminds me that years ago I heard there was an organization called something like “Friends of Texas Secession,” but that the vast majority of its members lived outside of Texas.

    What do you think the NRA was thinking of, taking over the Pa outdoor show and not allowing gun sales? If they were going to change the nature of the show they should have stayed out. I know they are our best hope, but thats is like voting McCain/Romney, we just get more Rino’s. I think they should let some one else sponsor.

      Every time I start thinking that the NRA may finally be shaping up, they figure out how to kick us in the teeth, one more time, and leave me feeling like a jackass for having softened on them. Then people will complain that I’m way too cynical.

      OK, NRA apologists, let’s have all those justifications now.

        I tend to think of NRA membership like going to the doctor.

        You don’t want to go.
        You know you are gonna hate what they do to you.
        You know it’s gonna cost you alot.
        But you do it anyway because the alternative is much worse.

        Sad state of affairs, isn’t it?
        When we have to pay and fight just to keep a Right that is written into the supreme law of the land something is VERY Wrong!

          How about the hard decision you’re faced with when you go through your four doctor-analogy steps above, and then come to conclude that what the doctor is doing is wrecking your health and quality of life faster than the fundamental problem was?

    Why do aficionados think that any imagery, no matter how hideous, that celebrates their sport/philosophy/ideology/passion is beautiful, much less art? Or even creative?

    How about the face of Jesus done in red, green, blue, yellow, and black shotgun shells, used as colored pixels?

    I’m just glad Sebastian and Bitter took the day off. Well earned.

    Think $650 is a bit much for that particular work, but it is kinda cool.

    • Zermoid says:

      Uhmmm, where’s the ‘Art’ part again?

      Draw or copy the outline of a state on a piece of wood, fill with random shotshells.
      My kid could do that.

      Besides, it’s a terrible waste of perfectly good hulls that could have been reloaded IMO.
