Gun Problem, solved by a modest proposal

You are allowed to have any gun you want, including fully-automatic machine guns. But they all have to come in pink.



Serious, responsible gun owners secure in their sexuality can deal with pink. They aren't idiots and I'm not concerned about what they own.

Irresponsible, insecure types who use a gun to feel like a man and are preoccupied with what others think of them won't be able to work through their own mental block. "How can a gay gun make me look like a baller?" Gun violence ends overnight. The nation heals.

Of course, this will only work so long as the most ignorant among us continue to hate the gays. If they do become more accepting, we could go back to ridiculous levels of gun violence.

2. Your proposal is trite and silly, but JADP - Many popular firearms are available in odd colors

3. A pink gun can kill just as well as any other color...

Maybe if you glammed up with sparkles and whatnot, more girls will like it.

6. Of course I was being silly

But I don't doubt that would be the real outcome if someone took me seriously and put it into practice. Gangsta rappers would be wearing pink everywhere, Susan G. Komen would sue the shit out of them for infringement, dogs and cats would live together, mass hysteria.

10. Eh

Women are capable of being just as stupid as men, being human and all, but male stupidity tends to be more lethal. Though we have had an increase in negligent discharges from purse guns.

If gun companies are marketing to women, cosmetics companies will market to men and the whole species will deservedly traipse along to hell.

The pushback against guns after Newtown is stronger than I've ever seen it. An NRA endorsement is getting to be seen like a KKK good citizenship award. There may yet be hope.
