Question of the Day: Pink Gun Edition by Dan Zimmerman | Dec 19, 2011 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “Who’s gonna rob or rape when there’s a fifty percent chance that Janie’s got a gun?” – Penn Jillette comments Tarrou says: December 19, 2011 at 09:19 I for one welcome our frilly firearm bearing overlords. It’s not like anything will change socially. Reply Totenglocke says: December 19, 2011 at 11:10 Except instead of throwing things at you when she’s going nuts for no reason, now she can shoot you! =p I doubt it’ll happen (often), but any man who’s been in a serious relationship should know to be nervous about a woman holding a deadly weapon. Reply Ralph says: December 19, 2011 at 11:13 I get nervous when they’re holding my deadly weapon. Reply Dan Zimmerman says: December 19, 2011 at 11:13 Thanks, Totenglocke. We didn’t have many comments posted yet this morning. Pretty sure you just took care of that. Reply RKflorida says: December 19, 2011 at 16:50 At my age it’s assault with a dead weapon, and nobody will hold it. Reply DaveL says: December 19, 2011 at 18:07 I know that statistically, women are far less likely to commit violent crimes. Also, that they’re far less prone to engage in risk-taking behaviour to impress their friends or the opposite sex. I know I trust my woman with a deadly weapon any day. Reply Scott says: December 19, 2011 at 10:47 ya know, he’s got a point. Reply Pete says: December 19, 2011 at 11:46 And think how embarrassing it must be for any lowlife who survives being shot by a woman with a pink gun – really hurts the street creds when you’re in the slammer. “She shot you with WHAT?” Reply CarlosT says: December 19, 2011 at 12:23 And actually, it would be pretty embarrassing to not survive, too. “Wait, he got killed with what?” Reply J in MS says: December 19, 2011 at 20:34 Wasn’t there a guy who shot himself in the jibblets while he was carrying his girlfriend’s pink pistol? Reply DaveL says: December 19, 2011 at 18:09 What about if he shoots himself in the junk with his girlfriend’s pink pistol? Reply O.N. says: December 19, 2011 at 15:56 Sign me up for a pink S&W Model 29. “Now you’re thinking, ‘should I gave messed with a guy holding a pink gun?’ So, do ya feel lucky punk?” Reply Tom says: December 19, 2011 at 17:24 Just remember, my oldest daughter beat all the little red neck boys in a .22 rifle competition at the range. The women can shoot! Reply Ralph says: December 19, 2011 at 19:35 The women can shoot! We know. That’s why we’re scared. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: December 19, 2011 at 20:36 My niece said she’ll go shooting with me, but only if I buy her a pink gun and a red Lexus. Reply Ropingdown says: December 19, 2011 at 23:09 Country wives were always expected to be able to fire the cabin gun if the men were away. In a modern urban context many women from Nancy Reagan to Senator Diane Feinstein have found a tasteful purse pistol to be a comfort. Who could object? Oh, they could….. Reply Pete says: December 20, 2011 at 14:32 I object to Diane Feinstein owning any gun, since she has spent her career in the Senate trying to ban we peasants from owning guns. Her flaming hypocrisy more than annoys me. Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
