Gun culture 2.0 is quietly taking the nation by storm. We’re talking the Call of Duty generation’s real-world firearms affinity, the growing number of women shooters hitting the range (and carrying concealed), the rise of the gunblogosphere and ballistic YouTubery, the increasing visibility of foodies who hunt, and more. Even as gun culture 2.0 spreads, OFWGs lament the death of gun culture 1.0. You know: war movies, black-and-white TV westerns (e.g., The Rifleman) and toy guns. Lots of toy guns! As the picture above demonstrates . . .
The [mostly male] fascination with plastic pretend firepower hasn’t disappeared entirely. An eagle-eyed reader sent it to us after a visit to the Pizza Hut at 4845 Rochester Rd. in Troy, Michigan. The fact that the vending machine exists at all is something of a revelation. The fact that local hoplophobes haven’t called for its removal is more of a miracle.
No doubt Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America will get straight to it because . . . guns suck. Unless you’re a boy. If you live local, show them some love.
