What a stupid article.

Lets blame the people who sell paint for something related to guns!


Yet no one blames the people who paint cars, despite the overwhelming number of injuries and deaths caused yearly from automobiles...

Don't they have bigger fish to fry than the minuscule number of colorized guns? :rolleyes: Sign of weakness or just biding their time? :eek:

Wish they would name one person ever killed with these typews of guns. They never do because it never happend.

Stupid scare tactics only work when my wife is holding out for sex!

Everyone knows only evil guns are black. And since all guns are inherently evil, they must not be allowed to be painted any other color as to sway public opinion.

The whole paint issue means if an Officer gets anything that looks like a firearm pointed at them, they can just blast away. So the moral of the story is don't point anything that looks like a firearm at a Police Officer. This has pretty much been common sense forever.

"So, I have a simple proposal that would have as much effect on gun crime as a lot of the restrictions that have been passed in the last 13 years:
Make All Guns Pink.

That's right: Pink.

We know that psycho schoolkid killers think they are tough. They'd never use a pink gun. Have you ever heard of a psycho crazy using a pink weapon before? Absurd. Therefore, if all the guns are pink, we'll be safe. Safety orange and lime green will be OK, too, I suspect. No self-respecting psycho crazy'd be seen dead with a lime green .44 magnum.

Oh, and make it illegal to repaint them.

Do you feel safe, now?"
-Oleg Volk, from the site referenced above.

Penn & Teller had a similar quote on the episode of BS. It paraphrased to:

'To reduce crime against women, give every woman a pink pistol, cause no criminal would be caught dead with a pink pistol and crimes against women would drop like a stone if there was a good chance the "Janies, got a gun". '
NOTE: The above a a paraphrase and not a Quote. The above is from the Gun Control Episode of BullS*** any mistakes are mine alone.

The Huffingtonpost...

I have not seen more vitriolic hatred and disgusting misinformation spewed from any other blogosphere on the planet.

A supervisor at work (LEO) sent out an email briefing about the "Hello Kitty" AR 15. We were warned about it and other toyish looking rifles. Most of us thought it was a cool looking rifle. Some guys wanted to know how to get one.:)

I'm going to do a very evil looking AR soon just to counter the hello kitty FUd going around.

BTW this is my favorite post by the commentors

I was in the military, and I have friends in law-enforcement (actual street cops, not politically-correct higher-ups or appointees). Soldiers and cops treat all gun-shaped objects, real or fake, as real. And contrary to anti-gun wild imagination, we don't shoot first before asking questions unless we get shot at.

In the hands of anyone we may approach, bright and highly visible gun-shaped objects are definitely preferable to less-visible gun-shaped objects. It actually reduces the chance of tragedy, since it reduces the chance of surprise and increases the potential for adequate reaction-time.

Anti-gun folks who think we might be lulled into laziness by a real gun that looks like a toy are simply ignorant of military and police training and discipline. But then again, ignorance isn't exactly a quality they seem to be short on.

HA HA LOL...

anyway, this was my favorite post in that article:

"If someone robs a bank with a real Hello-Kitty painted AR-15 or a toy replica AR-15 and gets shot by police in the process, the bank robber deserves to be shot in BOTH instances.

If Johnny Gangbanger flashes a fake gun or a real barney purple gun on 3rd and Crack St, and gets shot by police or a law-abiding citizen, Johnny Gangbanger deserves to get shot, in BOTH instances.

If a cop stumbles upon a group of kids playing cops and robbers in a residential neighborhood and shoots up a few kids because he/she was unsure whether or not the kids were playing with real or fake guns, the cop deserves to lose his/her job and face consequences because of a poor decision.

If an 8 year old finds a loaded and unsecured Lime Green SKS is daddy"s closet, and shoots him/herself accidentally, then daddy deserves to face consequences for having an unsecured firearm around a child, and for not properly teaching the child the potential dangers of firearms.

If a child saws their fingers off with a black and red Craftsman jig saw or a florescent yellow Dewalt jig saw, is it the color"s fault or the fault of someone who did not properly teach their kid to treat EVERY saw as if it were real???"
