Gun Tweet of the Day: “Love is like handing someone a gun, having them point it at your heart and trusting them never to pull the trigger”

It’s the Gun Tweet That Won’t Die. It’s also The Gun Tweet That Indicates Mental Instability. At the risk of being labelled a hopeless romantic—I mean pedant, this infinitely re-Tweeted sentiment is scary stupid. First, “handing someone a gun” is a bad idea. Gurlposts, you don’t want to be handing just anyone a gun, ever. Even if you restrict the “here’s a heater” group to people you love, ask yourself this before you make the transfer: does Mayor Bloomberg know about this? Also, have you ever broken up hard? Separated from a significant other so unstable he or she made makes francium look like neon-20? Divorced the bitch from hell? Well, exactly . . .

“Having them point [the gun] at your heart” is WAY too vague for comfort. Whose idea was this Eva Braun moment in the first place? If it was yours Gurlposts, just step away from Degrassi. If it was his, you need to Krav Maga your beloved’s ass, run like hell, dial 911 and get yourself a carry permit and a revolver to go with your restraining order.

“Trusting them never to pull the trigger” indicates two separate levels of nuts.

One: trusting someone not to pull the trigger of a gun pointed at your center mass is like putting a suicide pill on your tongue and not swallowing it [see: Eva above]. Why do that? Instead, run that copy of Flatliners over a big ass magnet and Google “Drama Queen recovery program” ASAP.

Two: never pull the trigger? That indicates an ongoing, extremely lopsided situation. Remember: it’s mutually assured destruction has kept the world safe for democracy/theocracy/Subway franchisees. If one side has all the power, it’s only a matter of time before they use it. As the Brits say, there will be tears at bedtime. As in The Big Sleep.

True story. And here’s another tip for Gurlposts and her 64,395 followers. You know that Tweet “If people hate you, don’t be worried. Because haters are people who hate the ones they can’t be”? Be worried. Be very worried. They’re the ones with the gun pointed at your heart. Just sayin’ . . .

    The quote that is championed by hopeless romantics who do not have guns. (or at the very least would be the last people I would trust with them)

      Romance and tragedy are themes often combined going as far back as William Shakespeare. This is a normal literary theme and normal discussion point of 16yr old girls –note the vampire moon whatever craze

    Why is there a photo of Donald Duck’s neice in the article?

  3. avatar Tim McNabb says:

    I would modify that tweet to be “pointed at my wallet”

    Robert Farago,

    You have Way too much time on your hands if you are reading Gurlposts.


    Shut the computer off and take the needle out of your arm.

    Thanks for the previous comments as they gave me good chuckle. I clicked over and read several of gurlsposts tweets. I suspect that she needs to start quoting the sources from where she is getting all her sagely advice that she is posting.

    Love is the triumph of belief over knowledge.

      Marriages after the first are the triumph of optimism over experience.

  7. avatar JOE MATAFOME says:

    If you’re in love with someone stupid enough to point a gun at your heart and you trust them to do so, then it’s your fault if the moron kills your dumb ass.

  8. avatar Derek says:

    WTF is wrong with her face?

    1. avatar mike0101 says:

      Not a damn thing. She’s blowing a kiss…….. At me! And my P226.

    2. avatar HSR47 says:

      It’s a condition known as duckface.

  9. avatar Joe nobody says:

    Just make sure the gun has a heavy trigger pull, and make sure your loved one isnt prone to sneezing fits

  10. avatar William says:

    Yep – ’cause if love isn’t destructive and abusive at its foundation then how can it be love…

    /sarcasm (since some TTAG readers have had a hard time deciding if something was sarcastic before…

    As a student of chemical engineering, I don’t understand the chemistry reference! Osmium is quite resistant to corrosion and its least-stable natural isotope has a half-life of nearly 10 trillion years, which would indicate that it could barely be considered radioactive at all. While nitrogen 14 is neither radioactive nor particularly chemically reactive, the entire fertilizer/explosives industry is based on reducing (mostly) nitrogen-14 from the air to ammonia and further on to nitrates (which are then used in the production of nitrocellulose, TNT, RDX, etc.).

    I would’ve chosen something more along the lines of “makes francium look like neon-20,” but that’s just me.

    1. avatar Robert Farago says:

      I was wondering how long it would take someone to call me out. Simile swapped.

  12. avatar Federale says:

    Much ado about nothing.

  13. avatar porschespeed says:

    So your female stripper/lawyer/Stanford AI PhD/Narc/Judge ‘fiancee’ is a bit unbalanced.

    This is news how?

    I’ve let them all have access to my firearms, and there has always been at least one moment when I wish I hadn’t. I’m still breathing, and it’s nothing to worry about.

  14. avatar Joe nobody says:

    I figured it out. It says “and trust them never to pull the trigger” that doesnt mean you trust them to never pull the trigger but that you should never trust them not to pull the trigger. she is really just a gun safety nazi.
