I doubt there is a kid out there that hasn’t owned, or been read to from one of the many Little Golden Books
Josh Cooley, a story artist at Pixar Animation Studios decided to put together a parody Little Golden Book “Movies R Fun”. It is currently being printed, and according to his blog will be available in November. It will contain all of his innapropriate golden book drawings. Damn that guy can draw!

For those that are unfamiliar with the movie Leon: The Professional… it’s a classic, and a must see for any gun/movie enthusiast. It is also known for being Natalie Portman’s first real movie, and basically started her entire career.
<– I was able to find a screen capture of the exact scene from the movie that is depicted in the above parody.
Makes me wonder if I would be able to come up with a similar drawing by tracing in adobe illustrator if I still had my tablet PC.
A FoxNews.com investigation reveals that a popular recreational pellet gun can be converted easily to a real semi-automatic weapon. And while the federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is already aware of the issue, these “toys” — new, top-of-the-line airsoft rifles — continue to be sold throughout the country.

Airsoft Gun Seizure – Apparently Toys Can Be Real Guns is the article I wrote back on Feb 28th on the airsoft gun seizure in Tacoma, WA. I thought that situation would have been cleared up by now, but apparently not.
I said this once and I’ll say it again… if it can be “easily” converted, to me that means with the use of handtools in a few minutes time. Hell, anything could be made into an AR-15 lower receiver if you had the patience… why is the ATF not confiscating cutting boards, blocks of wood, billet aluminum, glass etc…??? It’s nice to see that the firearms expert that they consult for this article actually is quoted saying the exact same thing.
The onus should be on the ATF to prove their case with a video or other detailed documentation. If they can not prove these toy guns can be “easily” converted then they should quit the harassment.
On 1 April, TACOM Life Cycle Management Command issued the Maintenance Information Message MI 10-040 “Camouflaging Specific Small Arms” stating that, given command approval, Soldiers are permitted to camouflage the M4/M16 weapon systems with paint.

As the guide says at the end, weapons painting has been elevated to a fine art. I don’t know where the awesome examples I saved on my harddrive went, but some of the paint jobs I have seen are breathtaking. The example the have in the PDF is pretty weak looking as far as artistry goes, although it still would likely look better than black in the right environment.
I’d like to see the military started paying soldiers that are also artists extra money to paint rifles. The talented guys shouldn’t have to work for free just because their whole unit would rather not walk around with the plain old black color scheme.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Authorities said a woman was injured in an accidental shooting Sunday at a store that specializes in hunting and fishing gear in Rancho Cucamonga.
The incident happened at 3:45 p.m. at the Bass Pro Shop when a customer brought two of his own guns to the shop to use at the indoor firing range.
As he was checking in the weapons at the front door to verify that they were unloaded and to be trigger-locked, a bullet discharged within the carrying case and struck a customer standing in an aisle about 70 feet away, according to a spokeswoman for the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.

Another report with some different info – HERE
From the 2nd article:
The 52-year-old man, whose name wasn’t released, was checking in the weapons at the front desk when he noticed one of the guns had the hammer cocked. He reached for the .45-caliber weapon and it fired.
Ugh… retard. Try unloading the gun before putting a trigger lock on it. The owner of the guns is lucky that woman didn’t get hit in a vital area and die. My guess is he is going to be in a lot of trouble anyway, rightfully so. We don’t need carelessness like that in the gun community.
It’s funny how both articles make it sound as if the gun just decided to “go off” on its own.
The two reports are a bit different:
- The first article states that the woman was about 70 ft away when she got hit… and the 2nd article states she got hit from 40 yards away ( 120 ft ) (BIG Difference)
- The first article states that the gun discharged within a carrying case… the 2nd article states the gun fired on its own through a bag.
- The second article says the round penetrated the woman’s clothing but didn’t penetrate her skin, and then the round fell to the floor.
Who knows what’s right and what isn’t…
In hindsight ( hehe ) that lady can laugh at the fact her ass stopped a .45 caliber round. Only less in magnitude to the mighty 10mm as far as the gun community is concerned. The hardcore .45 supporters would have laughed their asses off if the bullet that struck the woman and failed to penetrate was a 9mm.
With a cool horse and poor trigger discipline:
I love the fast pace of the ad, and the background music. He hammers the audience with facts, rhetorical questions, and quick camera work.
It will be interesting to see if he wins. The video already has almost 200k visitors on YouTube in 1 day, but most of those people probably don’t live in Alabama.
