Glock style

A friend of mine got this in her email:  

Query: I am looking for a person who can comment on home goods and/or women’s fashion with a specific eye on the way modern handguns are being used as pop art or decorative motifs. From an AK-47 ceramic standing lamp at a lighting store to gun ice cube trays at Urban Outfitters to crystal-encrusted gun necklaces at boutiques to gun knitting kits on etsy, images of modern gunsare showing up in unexpected places. I want to know what this means? Why would we take something dangerous and screen print it on a pillow? What does this say about guns and violence? What messages do these images and products send? Who is buying them? Are they chic? Tacky? Dangerous? Fun?

My response: 

  1. Never mix AR’s and AK’s in your decor. It’s tacky-tical. 
  2. Be warned: Some people find Glock-themed throw pillows are hard to angle properly on the couch.
  3. Never buy an ammunition-themed necklace unless its price tag begins with a “4”. 
  4. Note: Coyote brown and coyote pelts don’t really go together.
  5. Never wear a black MOLLE vest after Memorial Day. 
  6. Picatinny rails: Good for rifles, bad for slingback pumps.
  7. Kalishinkitty products never get old. 
  8. Keep your finger off the knitting needles until your purl is on-target. 
  9. Hi-capacity “assault” purses should be restricted just to nursing mothers and teachers.
  10. People worried about violence and fashion have never seen what happens when shoes go on sale on Nordstrom’s…
