    Default "Girls with Guns," in a positive light, found on NPR !?

    Check this link out, looks like a pretty cool book, being previewed on NPR website,

    apparently a book of photographs, but the few pics they have on the website are pretty good I thought
    (nine pics, on the second link, the first is the story about the book)

    always interesting to read something like this on a, "somewhat green," network

    This is only because the socialists and media elite consider the whole idea odd, like a strange bug you've never seen, they cannot understand it, cannot comprehend it, and so it enters the fascinating for them.

    Her images of women who own guns for self-defense tend to elicit a common response, she says: "What a sad commentary that is on our culture that a woman would feel the need to have a gun in order to feel safe and protect herself and her family."

    This is the most telling comment that allows us to see into the lack of comprehension I was speaking of: they cannot speak of the fact that NOTHING protects you but yourself. They are so locked into the idea one can pick up a telephone and viola! Cops suddenly are there. It just doesn't work that way. And it is so truly sad, as these people keep pumping out all the pap possible to try to brainwash women into thinking that being totally helpless makes them safer.

    The photographs are very tasteful, well composed and artsy, but not so artsy that it has an unreal feeling, they look natural.

    Not sure what Socialism has to do with firearms or self defense, regardless of gender...(?).

    Heard the interview on NPR this evening, and it was not bad.

    I kinda liked looking at the PETA girls in Anchorage Friday myself. Good looking young girls topless behind a loosely held banner will get my attention anytime.

    I forget what they were promoting - but who cares!

    On youtube there are plnty of flicks of girls shooting firearms. And some of the rifles/pistols are serious boomers too.
