Babes in Arms: Incendiary Image of the Day

“After weeks of voting, we proudly announce the Treasure Valley’s Girls With Guns Top 20,” Idaho’s reports. “Who will win the grand prize?  Voting begins now true believers. Which girl will win your vote? Remember the grand prize winner receives a $500 gift certificate from Boise Guns Company and a gun safe from Gourmet Grills and Idaho Safe and VaultWARNING: Some entries are not safe for work.” And some . . .

will send anti-gun rights crusaders scurrying to a safe space. Especially the one above, showing two toddlers standing in front of what we presume to be their guns. The “hers and hers” tasseled pink lever rifles seem more than a bit big for ones so small. Maybe they’re aspirational. Finish your vegetables so you can grow big and strong and hold your gun! Anyway, they get my vote.

    Picture represents goal-setting at its finest.

    Start em young.

  3. avatar Rick the Bear (MA to NH) says:

    What bullshite! Gender prejudice on display. Shame, shame. I mean, some girls (and women) don’t like pink, so why assume that these girls do. Perhaps Realtree would be better for the furniture. Just sayin’. (hee, hee) 8>)

      Lionel Trains came out with a Girls Set in the 1950’s, steam engine and tender in pink all other cars in pastel colors, it was their WORST seller EVER as girls wanted “real” looking trains. After bombing BIG league the “Girls Set” became one of the most sought after Lionel items by collectors, sadly I don’t see “pink” firearms matching that train set in collectability OR sales.

    Well, FWIW – I’m not inflamed. Cute kids.

  5. avatar Ken says:

    Some of the other entries are quite cringe-worthy. If that’s the top 20, lord help us.

    1. avatar Ray says:


      Good photography takes as much training and practice as good shooting.

  6. avatar Alex says:

    What exactly is inflammatory here again?

  7. avatar NorincoJay says:

    I would think shooting while pregnant without a suppressor would be bad for the babies hearing. If you click on the link you’ll see.

  8. avatar former water walker says:

    Inflamed? Naw..they look like my identical twin great nieces. Possibly the cutest kids in the world. No guns though. Snowflake’s pizz and moan about everything…

    1. avatar California Richard says:

      One on the left looks a mite older than the one on the right. I’m sensing Irish twins maybe?

  9. avatar Vitsaus says:

    No joke, the most horrifying thing about this picture is that evidently, one of the children is named “Braelyn.”

    1. avatar jwm says:

      Maybe a twist on Ava and Raylin from Justified?

  10. avatar Ralph says:

    Those rifles are too large for those little kids. I suggest something in 9mm, which is the perfect caliber for small children and recoil-averse sissies.

    If not the 9mm, then the famous but uncommon .9mm would be an acceptable alternative.

  11. avatar matty 9 says:

    Good Lord, those are BB guns. And I guarentee you those little princesses won’t even be able to cock them untill they’re old enough to know the 4 laws. Anyone that gets offended by that pick is thereby offending ME!! Get over yourself. Let folks raise their own kids. AND, if it aint pointed at you don’t sweat it!

    1. avatar NA says:

      “And if it ain’t pointed at you don’t sweat it!” says matty 9.
      What a hero.

    2. avatar California Richard says:

      +1. Of the red rider variety. My kids (8 & 10) have the same ones and it is a pita for them to charge.

    3. avatar Somebody says:

      Maybe I am odd, but I had no problems charging that same style lever BB gun at age 5.
      How young would you intend to start them on guns?

  12. avatar D says:

    I want to start my 5 year old daughter shooting. Any suggestions on a .22 pistol or rifle she can learn to handle herself?

    1. avatar Jeff O. says:

      The Savage Rascal single-shot rifles are great.

      They’re more expensive than the Cricket rifles, but they have a nice peep sight, accu-trigger and smoother bolt.

      They come in a wide variety of colors.
