Pro-gun picture book for children aims to reassure kids about parents' weapons

I thought this was going to be a satirical piece. I'm astonished and saddened that it's not.

My Parents Open Carry, by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, co-founders of the pro-gun Michigan Open Carry, has been released by small US publisher White Feather Press. The picture-book fellows a "typical Saturday running errands and having fun together" for 13-year-old Brenna Strong and her parents, say the authors. "What's not so typical is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defence."

  1. I haven't read the book, but it looks like a fine idea.

  2. Maybe household nuclear weapons should be a right too. The threat of "Mutually Assured Destruction" would tell that pesky neighbour you aren't bluffing when you tell him to quit mowing his lawn before 8 a.m. on a sunday.

  3. I'm still trying to wrap my head around this. I can't believe it's for real.
