I know what you mean Stephinthecity. I LOATHE what guns represent but they are so cool looking. I would never sport anything with a gun because I have a 2 year old and I don't want to give her mixed messages. She will not be allowed to play with guns or any weapons.

Very cool.  I made a purse with the exact same gun stencil, except my bag was black and I used white paint.

i think the bag turned out great & that's my favorite my chemical romance song. guns are a touchy subject, but as long as we can see the difference between promoting violence and going along with fashion i think it's fine to be creative.

I've struggled with the gun thing a bit too. Not in the fashion sense though, as I have yet to put a gun on anything (although I am planning on it). I recently worked on a film that involved the use of M16s (read: BIG guns) and other hand guns. For the first few days I felt uncomfortable with being a part of something that could potentially add to the sensationalization of guns and violence. I spoke about it with the gun handler. He told me that he hates guns. That he shot a squirrel when he was 12 and has refused to shoot anything since. He said he does it for the effect. For the art of film making. I spoke about it with another crew member who pointed out that guns and violence can be used to get across very strong messages AGAINST guns and violence. He also said that it's just a matter of using images like that responsibly. And I agree. And I don't think that anyone is going to look at this bag and get the urge to go out and shoot anyone. Plus, anyone who would actually look at a picture of a gun on a purse and start shooting anyone was probably pretty messed up in the first place and would have done it anyway.

i think your bag came out great...theres so many images in the world today that can offend someone, or remind them of something that happened...this is where having a brain and being smart enough comes in... ive got a shirt that has a gun on it and it says "restraining order..hold tightly let go lightly"..actually now that i think about it..i have alot of shirts that could be offensive..haha..
