Republican (surprise!) Sen. Lori Klein keeps a loaded handgun in her purse. During an interview w/ an Arizona Republic reporter, she pulled out the gun, pointed it him, and stated "Oh it's so cute." The gun, a .380 Ruger, which doesn't have a safety, does have a laser site site, however, which she pointed at the reporter's chest. People are shocked by her cavalier behavior, blah blah blah.
But here's the thing--and this is going to be considered discriminatory by some--but...just look at this person:
|Is it me or does this person look nuts?|
According to the Huffington Post, "...Klein's handgun has become a symbol of the gun control debate, and while she supports those who want the right to carry guns, she says it's a personal choice that she isn't forcing on anyone. 'I don't like chocolate ice cream. Am I going to force you not to have any?'"
Makes sense; great analogy. Freedom to play around with guns is so similar to allowing people to eat chocolate ice cream. I mean, you have a gun on the one hand, a cute one, even, and you have some ice cream on the other. One can put a hole in your chest and the other can just make you sleepy and maybe a little chunky. Hey, we're all entitled to our likes and dislikes, yeah? Some people like firearms and some people like choco dessert. Get it?
Hey Senator, have you tried this ice cream? I hear it's killer!
