    The easy way to explain "Open Carry" to your kids.

    A CHILDREN’S picture book that aims to show kids the benefit of having parents who openly carry handguns has caused outrage in the US.
    The Michigan-based authors say My Parents Open Carry provides “a wholesome children’s book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, ie that self-defence is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defence”.
    The book was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, the two co-founders of the pro-gun group Michigan Open Carry, who say the story will help parents who carry a gun and sometimes struggle with how to best explain the reasons” to their children.



    The story depicts a day in the life of the Strong family “as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together”.
    The book’s synopsis reads: “What’s not so typical is that Brenna’s parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense. The Strongs join a growing number of families that are standing up for their 2nd Amendment rights by open carrying and bringing gun ownership out of the closet and into the mainstream.”

    Jeffs and Nephews said they decided to write the book because they “looked for pro-gun children’s books and couldn’t find any.”
    The independent news website Raw Story reported that Nephew told Armed American Radio that “most kids aren’t scared of a gun … that’s another good point this book tries to make.”
    On the My Parents Open Carry website, the authors describe the book as something that “will be treasured for years to come and will be passed down to new family members”.
    and will be passed down to new family members.

    The authors also thank their sponsors, the National Take Your Daughter to the Range Day.
    The website is also offering buyers a free copy of the “fun” book Raising Boys Feminists Will Hate! by Doug Giles.
    Critics of My Parents Open Carry slammed the book on Twitter, with many expressing shock that it was real and not a spoof.

    The "Strong" family. I suppose the "Ignorantgunloony" family was too difficult to typeset.

    Top seller within these circles.
    Practical, less principled.

    Observe the states [American] that have easy open carry permits - you'll find your ready made market.

    then he'll grab the gun while the black kid drags the white chick into the van...




    thought that was obvious.

    Girl with the gun has freakishly fat arms though. Bingo wings. Maybe it's an old man posing as a young girl, packing heat....



    As for the dad.... jees, even WA would think twice about letting that weirdo bring a surrogate kid in from Thailand.

    It should be translated into the different tongues of Afghanistan, and distributed into the schools, learn the American way, shoot home invaders dead.

    Strange that the NRA propaganda never shows an Afro-American kid or adult open carrying.
