Incendiary Image of the Day: Marriage Has Its Ups and Downs Edition

Several members of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia have pointed out that firearms are “going mainstream.” In other words, people aren’t freaking out about them so much. While my left-leaning octogenarian Mum had a conniption when I asked her if she’d like to keep a revolver handy, I haven’t seen a TV show with an anti-gun sub-plot since the days when every car in the entire episode was a Ford (except for the bad guy’s wheels, of course). And then there’s this cake topper, which is about as far from an image of gun and Bible-clinging po’ folks as you can get. Saying that, when you see this same scenario with an overweight black woman and an Asian woman in a wheelchair aiming ARs, THEN we’re getting somewhere . . . [h/t to William C. Montgomery]

    Really? Watch this season of A&E’s “The Glades”.

      True. A very anti-gun show. But it’s okay, since our “hero” is the most p-whipped dunce in the history of television.

    I think the wedding vows should include “I’ve got your back.”

      I actually find that romantic, in a deceptively simple kind of way.

    I want one of these if I get married, but I’d have an AK and my girl would have an AR.

    If this were a true wedding cake, his fly would be open and she’d already have pumped six rounds into the guy’s back.

      “his fly would be open and she’d already have pumped six rounds into the guy’s back.”

      Sounds like 90% of the movies on the Lifetime channel.

    You kill me Ralph, I knew you’d have something great to say.

  6. “And then there’s this cake topper, which is about as far from an image of gun and Bible-clinging po’ folks as you can get.” Indeed, the photographer who took this photo is based in Cheshire, England and works weddings of her well bred countrymen who can afford lavish events at country estates and churches of the “ceremonial county.” It’s not the kind of place you’d expect to find pro-gun statements, even if in jest.
