The usual interview, swimsuit, and beauty components are still there… but these are the awesome parts:

Marksmanship  (20 points)

In the preliminaries each of the 50 contestants chosen will show their expertise in the use of firearms (pistol and rifle). The contestants will be judged on accuracy, use and safety as well as any additional expertise the contestant my possess.  (This portion of the competition will be taped and edited for the live telecast)

Knowledge of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence (35 points)

Each contestant will be asked 3 specific questions that will demonstrate the contestants knowledge of these fundamental American documents.

  • The judging is set to be done by 15 U.S. Military Officers.
  • Part of the price is a Lifetime NRA Membership, and a Handgun and Rifle of her choosing.  Badass!

According to the about page, we can look forward to this pageant July 4th weekend in 2012.

The website is extremely suspect, but the idea behind the pagent is awesome.

I like the part about “freedom, liberty, and AR-15s”.

Gotta watch those negligent discharges Mr. Dan.

Eight Primary schools in Liverpool (UK) are using the notorious Grand Theft Auto video game to teach pupils about violence.

The sessions are supposed to help youngsters understand the consequences of gun and knife crime. The youngsters are also given trading cards with images from the video game and the cartoons, alongside real-life images of drunks, knives, syringes and parents arguing.  The youngsters are asked to say whether what they see is ‘good real life’, ‘bad real life’, ‘not real life’ or ‘not sure’.

Full Story – HERE

Sounds like one of the dumbest ideas I have ever heard.   Why are they even bothering to educated kids in the UK on gun and knife crime anyway?  I thought both were banned there.  :P  If there is one thing I hope the kids take away from this Grand Theft Auto education, it’s that its OK to fight back.  Basically if the guy shooting at you is using a handgun, by all means use a rocket propelled grenade launcher to take care of business.

Speaking of Grand Theft Auto… a new one comes out on April 13th for PS3 called “Episodes From Liberty City”… You can buy it on Amazon – HERE for only $38.54
