Nuns with Guns?

As the video above proves, nuns with guns isn’t a new idea. Sure, the Pope declared that Christians can’t trust gun manufacturers. But the entertainment industry has been arming nuns for some time. So Seth Kaufman’s new satirical book Nuns with Guns isn’t really groundbreaking. But it is anti-gun. radaronline.com gets us back into the habit . . .

A gun lobbyist, a producer, and four nuns get their own reality show.

No, it is not the prelude to a bar joke — it is the premise of a new and hysterical yet timely book, Nuns With Guns, by Seth Kaufman. Inspired by the proliferation of gun deaths on American soil, Kaufman examines gun control through a satirical lens.

Four Catholic nuns land a reality show deal with notoriously foul-mouthed Hollywood producer Rick Salter and set out in a competition to see who can collect the most guns.

Steadfast on their mission, the sisters catch the backlash of the gun lobby while inspiring boycotts and death threats — all while capturing the attention of an enraptured reality show audience.

Will these gutsy women of the cloth put an end to gun violence, or will they meet their makers while trying? Find out when Nuns With Guns hits stands.

Or not.

    1. avatar CRF says:

      I would be nun too proud of that pun if I were you.

      1. avatar Owen says:

    “Sure, the Pope declared that Christians can’t trust gun manufacturers.”

    Why not? Did they molest kids and try to cover it up, or something?

  8. avatar Klaus says:

    The pope did not mean gun manufacturers. All those who report from this speech take it out of context. He was refering to war profiteers. Typically people research something before they write about it but apparantly that is not true here

    1. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

      So, don’t trust the gov’t…

      Check.

      1. avatar Partigiano says:

        Or the Catholic Church. Which is kind of a government.

    2. avatar Ad Astra says:

      And what about when he accused the Allies of duplicity in the Holocaust?

    3. avatar CarlosT says:

      Also, he didn’t mean that only cheesemakers are blessed. Obviously it refers to all manufacturers of dairy products.

      1. avatar Klaus says:

        Im not getting into a debate over every little thing that the pope said. Half the time the news takes what he says out of context, i just wanted to point out that robert farago is doing the very same thing. I believe when he said this there was actually an article written by sara tipton on here that did discuss what he actually said

    Why am I reminded of the move Machete? Just sayin.

    1. Yeah but for this they’d have had to spell it Mehshitty.

  12. avatar Calvin says:

    A lefty-handed AK, why do I have to be a nun to get a left-handed AK?

  13. avatar Joe R. says:

    Nuns with guns huh?
    Kaufman needs to go offend some muslims for us.
    Fn POS.

    Here’s a book title for ya kauf:
    “Gay Jews with bad jokes.”

    Next thing you know he’ll try and sell us another “true meaning of Christmas” in a television “Christmas Special”.

    Why can’t he do a story about a pack of bend-over-and-take-it rabbis that get a raw and gutsy news show pilot from satan’s butt nugget bloomberg, and they go around the world trying to see how many German shower heads they can collect. (Call it an homage to history).

    Anti-semitism starts out as a begged condition, and grows into a nationalistic movement when enough people can’t force themselves to avoid it any longer.
    Keep building the movement.

      I totally agree.

    “… Inspired by the proliferation of gun deaths on American soil,”

    So its a fictional piece then.
