does it come with pink polka dots?

Ok look, I am not getting into some huge back and forth about the right to bear arms.  I don’t have a particular problem with it as long as it’s legal.

My ENTIRE point of posting this is the sheer hypocrisy of Susan G. Komen and their frozen faced leader Nancy G. Brinker .

I find it amusing that they cut funding to Planned Parenthood, yet they partner with Discount Gun Sales for a pink hand gun?

Seriously:

Walther P-22 Hope Edition 3.4″:

Discount Gun Sales is proud to team up with the Susan B. Koman Foundation to offer the Walther P-22 Hope Edition in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of each P-22 Hope Edition will be donated to the Seattle Branch of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The P-22 Hope Edition has an exclusive DuraCoat Pink slide in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Utilizing the same reliable controls and firing mechanism that has made the Walther P-22 America’s top selling handgun, the Hope Edition will be a limited production pistol offered exclusively through Discount Gun Sales.

So if you are going to play devil’s advocate here, why is one form of death more acceptable than the other?  Why is it that the constitutional right to bear arms is o.k., but not a woman’s right to choose?

I simply can’t see people flipping out the pink Walther at shooting ranges.  I don’t know any self-respecting gun owners who want a gun that looks like it got borrowed from the gun safe in Barbie’s Dream House.

Are the companion bullets pink with polka dots?  Do we get pink fries with that?

Seriously, the more I learn about Susan G. Komen and their quest for endless pink crap, the more I hope people seriously continue this boycott of them.

I can’t take credit for this latest Komenism, but here is where I learned about it:

HOPE KILLS: Susan G Komen Foundation Would Rather Be Associated With A  Handgun Than Planned Parenthood

Well, here’s an interesting weapon!

The Susan G. Komen Foundation, which collects and distributes money for  Breast Cancer research and prevention is  in the news for withdrawing its (relatively small) grant from Planned  Parenthood.

So the Komen Foundation doesn’t want to be associated with the nation’s  largest abortion-provider. But they don’t mind partnering  up with a handgun maker.

This gun is a beauty.

And a portion of the sale of each P-22 Hope Edition will be  donated to the Seattle Branch of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Here again is Breast Cancer Advocate Barbie waxing poetically in defense of lots of pink garbage:

  1. How about the 7.5 million to Penn State that they are NOT defunding? I guess the fact that they are under federal investigation isn’t a problem.

  2. Editor’s Note: in an amusing turn of events, CBS News is reporting the demise of the pink gun for Komen it seems:

    “Updated Feb 4, 4:45 a.m. ET

    The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, in the midst of a controversy for defunding and then restoring its partnership with Planned Parenthood, said Friday reports about a partnership with a gun retailer are wrong.

    Business Insider reported Thursday that Discount Gun Sales (DGS), a Seattle-based gun retailer, listed for sale on its website the Walther P-22 “Hope Edition.” Hotsheet also reported on the partnership Friday. The retailer claimed the handgun with a pink slide and a pink breast cancer awareness ribbon was meant to raise awareness about a life-threatening predator: cancer.

    ……But Andrea Radar, a spokesperson for Komen, said Friday they have not partnered with DGS and have “no record of receiving money from this company.”

    And now, the website link at DGS is no longer working and brings up a grey page on DGS’s website that says “access denied!”

    A store employee at the gun retailer chain’s headquarters in Seattle, who would not give his name, told Hotsheet they took the page down Friday afternoon because of a dramatic increase in interest in the product.

    “We removed it due to the inundation of phone calls over an item we do not stock,” the employee said.

    When asked if they took the webpage down at the insistence of Komen, he said no, and when asked if Discount Gun Sales entered into a partnership with Komen, he said he had “no comment on the particular item at the moment.”

    But employees at three of DGS’ 10 locations said they sold the pink gun.”
