At first, as I was scanning through the 'recent with pics' posts, I thought this was some sort of high-tech glue gun. The fact that it's a real gun makes it even more awesome! Not that I'm into guns, but a bright and cheerful gun cozy is just awesome. You can tell you spent a lot of time making sure it fit perfectly and look flawless as well   Smiley

Wow...This is unbelievable.
Good for you for finding an unusual way to be crafty..but really, in my opinion, this is just wrong. What's next? Post of guns that are painted with acrylic and rhinestones?
Weapons should not be glamorized.

Oh the irony in a second amendment sort of way Wink. That fabric was definitely a find! Wish I came across stuff like that when I was thrifting. Love the rick rack and the buttons. Looks very professional.

This is truly one of the funniest things I've seen recently. Do you mind if I steal one of the photos for my desktop?

I'm really grooving on the slogan. It's like, "I really like you America. We can totally be friends, but let's not get all carried away and call it 'love.'"

LOL, I totally thought that too! "Let's just be friends -it's not you, it's me."  Grin

And as for the desktop photo, sure. Thanks for asking!

I can see where you were going, and I know the irony is certainly there. However, I don't think this is something that I would condone doing, especially multiple times. The cozy is colorful and bright and cherry and pretty, and it glamorizes and makes it look inviting to children, and more toy like. Just my opinion.

ok, i am sorry, i'm a sarcastic bitch here... but i must post this or i will implode rofl...

did anyone here not have a capgun when they were 10?  i hope you gals never ever EVERRRR watch TV & movies or purchase your child (if you have any/want any/whatever) toys of superheros, bb guns, paint ball guns, wrestlers, cops n robbers costumes, grand theft auto and games of the like or ***gasp*** old school gangsta rap!!!  b/c all that stuff does is "make guns/sex/weapons/etc inviting to children." i really dont think it's the kids we have to worry about, so much as their parents... how about leaving the politics at the door and moving on to the next post.  no one is going to change political views via craftster, so just let it go!

...in my opinion, this is just wrong. What's next? Post of guns that are painted with acrylic and rhinestones? Weapons should not be glamorized.[/color]
I vote for the rhinestones.

...I don't think this is something that I would condone doing, especially multiple times. The cozy is colorful and bright and cherry and pretty, and it glamorizes and makes it look inviting to children, and more toy like. Just my opinion.
i condone doing it, a million times. cozies for all seasons!
(i am 99.9% sure, that the people here are responsible and are not giving their kiddies tutorials on gun cozy making.)

Good point. I speak only marginally better than I write, which isn't that great at all! I'm pretty sure I understood that the usual statistical stereotype of a "crazy gun person" is a white male, which I'm not (on either count, that is, crazy or male  Tongue). But because I started adding all sorts of adjectives to that sentence I think I muddled it all up (as usual). I should probably just delete all the text and just have the pics!  Lips sealed

No worries! Smiley I just thought I'd bring it up incase someone was offended or what not. Just glad you arn't a crazy person with a gun! Tongue

that is hysterical. i love the fabric so much the message is funny and bizarre. why would the fabric designer not "love" america? why would they not go all the way with that sentiment? and to turn it into a gun cozy! that is too brilliant.
