Take Them to the Range

______________

The above ads are featured in this month's National Rifle Association publication, The Rifleman (May 2008). The NRA is the group that advocates for private gun ownership under the 2nd Amendment, and protecting your women from assault from evildoers.

However, deviating from their foundational claims of respect for womenfolk,
they now run ads featuring pure objectification of these national treasures. Even one dense as Ranger catches the blatant sexual innuendo.

Curious an association like the NRA, which espouses traditional rights and maintains a pretense to morality would even consider running such exploitative advertisements.

The sexism in the NRA magazine is onerous because they do wrap themselves in the flag, affiliating with apple pie and supposedly everything wholesome and good about America.
Apparently, profiteering via ad revenues is part of that American ethos they so cherish. They have borrowed from the Bush administration's play book: Do as we say, not as we do. Problem is, you lose your integrity when you make such compromises.

These hypocrites should get a grip on something other than their pistols. In fact, they should join the 21st century, which aspires to be something better than the last 8 years the George Bush administration has delivered.

indeed. while i do find self-sufficiency, independence, and personal strength completley and irresistably attractive in women, (even when those very qualities are what encourage the women to move on)it almost never results in romantic evenings at the range.

candlelight and gourmet food is much more effective.
