    I have to say I agree with the author. that is not a good picture.

    This:
    "Itís not that the image glamorizes guns or violence. Itís that the timing of the image trivializes the toughest decision that can be made with a firearm. No matter how righteous a shoot, gun owners do themselves no favors by macho posturing. Or what looks to be macho posturing."
    "The history of the 20th century is largely people exchanging Freedom for "security" and "equality", then getting gulags, shortages, and oppression instead."- JoeinPNG

    Macho picture

    You guys are a tough crowd. Would I pose for that photo? No. But then, I'm not an 18 year old mother who just shot an intruder, lost my husband the week before, and had to ask a 911 operator for legal/tactical advice. I'd cut her some slack.

    I was just about to edit my post to say something like that.

    I can't really say how I would've acted being put into that position at 18.

    Being put into that situation at any age sucks, but 18. Wow.

    I think that photo is actually a still from one of the interview videos where she was demonstrating where she was standing, etc. Perhaps not an ideal move either, but I don't think it's staged for that shot. Is that a single action type revolver hanging in her support hand?

    I am just worried for her, is all.

    I am not cool with that blogger posting that. Not at all. Agreed with SLG.
