    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."

    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.
