    So much projection.
    Can’t point it out though! That’s bigotry.

    1. avatar Bobiojimbo says:

      Yes you can, you just have to stop letting their words hurt you.

  2. avatar DerryM says:

    It never ceases to amaze me how these libtards think conflating firearms with sex is somehow insulting. As long as they are wasting their time with this kind of idiocy, they aren’t infringing RKBA and they are making themselves look as ridiculous and ineffectual as they actually are.

    1. avatar HP says:

      Seriously. I’ve become quite fond of the term ammosexual.

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Ammosexuals never shoot blanks… 🙂

      2. avatar HeySpany says:

        I am not an “ammo sexual” and I resent the label…I’m bi-caliber.

        1. avatar Jp says:

          You sir win the best comment of the day. I seriously laughed for about 5 minutes after reading that!!!!

        2. avatar JasonM says:

          I don’t believe in your hard and fast categories. Why can’t I feel like a 9mm one day and a .357 Magnum the next? I’m caliber-fluid.

    2. avatar DerryM says:

      You guys are crackin’ me up! So, when I change my SIG P-226 from .40 S&W to .357 Sig, does that make me trans-caliber?

      1. avatar anonymoose says:

        No, it makes you caliber-fluid, since you can change back and forth at will.

        1. avatar samuraichatter says:

          I am thinking gunqueer is a better term as he does not identify w/ just .40 cal or .357 sig.

    3. avatar Rusty Chains says:

      If they want to sell the idea, they should use a pool noodle to make it more lifelike for their pleasure, since they seem to get off on equating guns to sex. They could even glue ribs or bumps to it before pulling the cover over the barrel!

      They do seem to be rather confused if you get my drift.

      1. avatar anonymoose says:

        Ribbed like an M16A2, for her pleasure!

    4. avatar Button Gwinnett says:

      Are you guys being microaggressive? Can I play?

      1. avatar DerryM says:

        Hmmm…I had not thought of these comments as being microaggressive, but no doubt Ms. Baxter would regard them as such. It’s been pretty amusing, so by all means join the fun!

  3. avatar A Brit in TX says:

    Why is masculinity toxic? As far as I understand, males & females (& therefore masculinity and femininity) are necessary to the continuation of the human race.

    The attitude displayed here is part of the reason HRC lost the election, the vast majority of normal folks are sick and tired of the media telling them that they should be ashamed of being male, white, middle class etc etc.

    But, it is the right of Natalie Baxter and her ilk to make, market & sell things like big soft fluffy rifles so good luck to her.

    1. avatar Stinkeye says:

      Masculinity is only toxic when it’s men being masculine. If it’s a FTM transexual or a “butch” lesbian acting masculine, they’re “expressing their true selves”, and we must accept and celebrate it.

    2. avatar Cliff H says:

      I wish I could remember the source of this quote:

      “A woman who kills her cheating husband may be suffering from PMS. A man who kills his cheating wife has testosterone poisoning.”

    3. avatar Defens says:

      This is a vast improvement over the dark days of the 90’s, when gun shows were bereft of gun selection, attended by long-faced folks just waiting for the hammer to drop on our rights, and full of vendors selling (shudder) Beanie Babies!

  4. avatar rc says:

    I’ll bet my AR shoots better groups than that one.

  5. avatar Rick the Bear (now in NH!!) says:

    Well, whatever keeps her off the street.

  6. avatar RockOnHellChild says:

    Sewing. Yep, that’ll get it done.

    Must be part of that “revolution” I keep hearing the libbies whining about now that DJT is next in line for POTUS…

    That’s right. Keep sewing, SJW tweeting, burning the American flag while flying the Mexican flag, screaming at people, name calling, and rioting… that’ll show us.

    Nope, no way that’ll backfire.

  7. avatar Omer Baker says:

    I looked at some of these stuffed ammo-mals (hah! made something up!) and thought they’d be great toys for my girls. Kinda gun-ish, but different enough looking than it wouldn’t make the real thing look like a toy. I saw the price and thought “wow, if people are paying that then good for her.” Maybe an idea for the sewers out there to make some stuffed ammo-mals and sell them at craft fairs, I’m sure there are people out there that would buy them for the littles.

    1. avatar Cliff H says:

      While I would hate to give her the sales, it would be wonderful to buy a bunch of these, slip a curtain-rod down the barrel-end and sew it up again, then sell them on Craig’s List.

      If you could get the pattern they would look great in digital camo or Realtree.

    2. avatar bLoving says:

      Maybe one of these would be worth a gift card at a gun buy-back?

      Probably.

    3. avatar California Richard says:

      +1…. the first thing i thought of was that my kids would love those if they didnt look so shitty. I think i know what im going to do with my camo fabric and sewing machine this weekend. Thanks for the post!

  8. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    Taking on the feminine craft of sewing to take on masculinity….
    Hmmm. After I finished laughing at this oxymoron, I realized I got nothing.
    Well, nothing that should be in print anyway.

  9. avatar Chris says:

    This dude has clearly never been to /k/.

    1. avatar 10mm says:

      Top kek

      May pepe bless you with the dankest of memes.

  10. avatar Quasimofo says:

    What in the actual fvck?

    Another good reminder that SJWs just don’t “get it”. Keep claiming that everything you don’t like/understand is the result of racism/sexism/homophobia/bigotry/etc. and see where that gets you. And they wonder why their candidate lost.

    But, it’s good for women, like men, to have a hobby…

  11. avatar Swilson says:

    It’s great she’s found something to do with her time. However her naive and inane reasons for doing so made me snort derisively.

  12. avatar Don says:

    Emasculate an object? It’s … an …. object …

    These would be great in a daughter’s room. Start them young!

    -D

  13. avatar Alex Peters says:

    “Alex, I’ll take ‘Things that are a Terrible Waste of Time’ for $400”

  14. avatar Mk10108 says:

    My chuckle for the day. Does the CA version come with a 30 round mag and pillow bullets?

    1. avatar MiniMe says:

      It can only have 10 pillow bullets in that mag for Kommiefornia. ;-D

      1. avatar sagebrushracer says:

        And don’t forget, you have to get a background check now for the ammo.

  15. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    First off, it looks more like a dinosaur. I’m thinking brontosaurus, possibly diplodocus.

    Second, my wife likes to knit and sew, and shoot. In fact, she made the cutest little muzzle booties for our shotguns, to keep dust or whatever out as they lean against the wall behind our bed. (Previously, I’d just used a pair of gardening gloves with the middle finger raised and facing D.C.)

    There’s nothing exclusively masculine about the right to keep and bear arms, any more than there is so about driving a car, holding a job, or getting an education. This fabricated battle of the sexes is yet another phony front in the mythical “war on women” liberals keep imagining.

    1. avatar samuraichatter says:

      Yeah, I saw dino long before I saw AR. I guess toxic minds think alike.

    “W. T. F. Over !!!! ” As soon as President Trump, and The Republican congress get set up in office…I believe its time to send some drafts to them pronto!!! Because this Libtard-ation is a Nationwide healthcare crisis !!! We need to make sure people this mentally ill are never put into positions of power, allowed access to dangerous tools /devices /machines/or materials, or allowed a platform, or soapbox in which to assail others that are NOT like minded, or to influence others with similar mental disorders that have not been identified !!! This mental healthcare crisis needs to be immediately dealt with !!! Since, the right representation are now in place to provide relief through laws, re-enforcing constitutional amendments, and Federal criminal investigations of one of these diseased organizations…The DNC !!!

  17. avatar LarryDD says:

    Thank you for my early morning humor fix.

  18. avatar Bob302 says:

    OMG! Are you kidding me? I read this morning that Progressives are talking about staging some sort of Bolshevik Revolution to overturn the election. Is this what they had in mind? I wonder if their uniform will be a Teletubby costume.

    1. avatar ThomasR says:

      That brought tears to my eyes I was laughing so hard!!

      Yep, tele tubby costumes and the full body pajama onesies.

      1. avatar Patrick says:

        …and class IIIA snuggies

    2. avatar Nitrocellulose says:

      LOL

      I’m just imagining a gaggle of numales, rainbow haired she-twinks and childless spinsters standing around an AR, trying to figure out how to work the high clipacity spooky ‘salt gun.

  19. avatar Ralph says:

    Dear Natalie Baxter:

    I have one word for you:

    Xanax.

    Regards,

    Ralph

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      Ralph, you forgot the Bacardi…

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        Back when Mark Whalberg was Marky Mark…

  20. avatar Wiregrass says:

    Well I guess we have to start somewhere with these people. Cuddles!!!

  21. avatar Cubbie says:

    These people are nuts. Open carry dildos, impotent pillow guns, slut walks, demands for free contraception. And they think we’re obsessed with sex?

    1. avatar MiniMe says:

      Pathetic is as pathetic does.

      LOL!

  22. avatar Pantera Vazquez says:

    Soooo,
    First cocks against Glocks.
    Now socks against Glocks.

    I am actually looking forward to the next brain fart from antis,

    Molon labe…….

  23. avatar DaveL says:

    Can I get a plush 105mm to use as a bean bag chair?

  24. avatar Jp says:

    She sounds like this woman I work with. She actually told me and I quote” it doesn’t matter what hillary did. Trump said hurtful things.” She also said I have no right to a gun. That I should be able to defend myself in other ways. I told her I can defend my self in many ways. I’m quite resourceful.
    20 min later I heard her say she’s taking a ccw class because she feels threatened my men.

  25. avatar DetroitMan says:

    This woman should write for Portlandia. Seriously, this is ridiculous enough that I can see Candace and Toni making and selling these limp stuffed guns at their bookstore.

  26. avatar RatInDaHat says:

    So she is saying that sewing is not masculine? I think sewing plate carriers, tac vests, and other assorted gear seems pretty manly to me. Seems like she is being rather sexist.

    1. avatar JJ48 says:

      I agree; how is sewing inherently feminine? I know plenty of guys who know at least a little sewing simply because repairing your own clothing can save you considerable money compared to buying a replacement.

      Furthermore, I know many guys enjoy making things with their hands, and needles, threads, and fabric are cheaper and less messy than a table saw and wood (not to mention quieter and less space-intensive, which would both be plusses for apartment-dwellers).

  27. avatar Aaron says:

    Geez, if a man said, “traditionally feminine craft of sewing and quilting” he’d be accused of sexism.

    But it’s OK if a libtard feminist says it??

  28. avatar Nitrocellulose says:

    Just point and laugh, brothers. Point and laugh.

    They’ve lost so hard, smashed so utterly, shaken to the core(one might say they’re literally shaking rn) to the point that they’re sewing plushy guns to calm themselves down.

    1. avatar Marcus (Aurelius) Payne says:

      I actually kind of want one.

  29. avatar RCC says:

    So what does sewing some elastic ammo loops into top pocket of my hunting shirt count as? Come in handy yesterday

    I have been adapting gear since I was a teenage army recruit

    1. avatar Jp says:

      I would call that creative.

  30. avatar Marcus (Aurelius) Payne says:

    If you’re anti gun and buy one, you’re party of the movement.

    If you’re pro gun and buy one then you’ve fetishized firearms and just want cuddle with your guns.

  31. avatar Mmmtacos says:

    Is this supposed to bother me? It doesn’t bother me. I think it might bother me that it’s made with the intent to bother me, I mean that would definitely bother me… a little. Then I’d forget about it.

    Oh, bother.

  32. avatar ATTAGReader says:

    She respects, nay, venerates her rural grandmother who taught her to sew and also kept a gun in the house, yet creates these big city “artworks” that mock her grandmother. Cannot comprehend the hypocrisy. And is obsessed with emasculating males. Just like Hildie. As a male who knows how to sew (not as well as my wife, but well enough) and also is a gun owner, the next 4 or more years are going to be fun.

  33. avatar Chris Morton says:

    It’s sad when somebody is so trivial and irrelevant that they don’t know just HOW trivial and irrelevant they are…

  34. avatar BDM-Brat says:

    Those are cute. I definitely agree they could send the wrong message to kids though. I’m working hard to get my friends and family to not use the oxymoron “toy gun”. What do you think the chances of her donating a portion of any sales proceeds to the NRA?
