    can anyone think of a more stupid idea than this?

    "Art" compacts for women, shaped like pistols, containing lip gloss (in the muzzle!!), pills, perfume, toothpick, hairpin, a thumb drive, & gold or silver.
    The writer does mention that it could be "provacative"...


    I'm all for normalizing guns & carrying, but this ain't the way to do it.

    I don't see the problem. After all dido's are something you wouldn’t expect to see in public as a norm, but yet we have certain politicians showing their faces, or wiener everyday.

    Wow, that is incredibly stupid. What women would actually pull that out in public to use. To the non-trained eye it looks very much like a real firearm and could potentially cause some problems. On another note, it is a pretty creative idea, just not a practical one.

    Considering the cost of this item, I'd venture to guess that anyone who can afford one is probably in the "anointed class" of people who would never be harassed (or even questioned) by "authorities" for having something like this in their purse...

    The only thing more stupid than creating this potential deathtrap is shelling out $17 grand for it.

    Well, that and carrying a real gun that's unloaded.

    How about using DRANO for mouthwash? Getting married to a broad you've known for a few weeks. Assuming "that gun must be unloaded, the hammer is down".

    Howdy Folks!
    Just wait till next year when they produce a similarly tricked out gizmo that looks like an AR-15 or maybe a RPG. Won't that be whimsical?

    Some people must be grateful companies put childproof lids on chemicals before they were born. See what government regulation does to society?

    No, you don't. Nor are you grateful to US industries.

    Hopefully libs will abort themselves out of existence soon, and then we can raise our standards back up so that the dumber kids sterilize themselves by eating lead base paint chips.

    Now there's HOPE AND CHANGE for ya folks.
