That should pretty much clear up any concerns you have, problem solved!
ps – While you were watching porn the football game this weekend:
Washington Post: The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.
Weekly Standard: In 2012, 532 people were murdered in the city of Chicago, according to statistics compiled by the Crime in Chicago website. The number of people murdered the year before was 441… The website also claims that, through December 25, 2012, there 2,670 people were shot in Chicago last year. That’s also an increase from the year before, when 2,217 people were shot in Chicago that year.
In all, it means that on average almost 1.5 people were murdered in Chicago each day last year, while on average 7.3 people were shot each day.
Well this can’t be true at all, because Illinois already bans concealed carry (and open carry in most instances) and Chicago demands that gun owners get a Firearm Permit, and register EACH gun with the CPD. With such strict gun laws, who in the world is still shooting each other 7.3 times per day? No no, the media must have this story wrong.
I effed with you guys. It wasn’t a sticker. Or some zombie targets. Or even the Bill of Rights (capped?). It was an impossibly thinly squeezed baseball hat. wtf? I look like a train engineer when I’m wearing this thing. Come on guys – how about the following next time:

Update: I got two NRA stickers in the mail yesterday. Still not the same as a sticker promising imminent death to intruders (or naked chicks with guns calendar *hint*), but I’ll take them.
As a prerequisite to joining joining a local gun range so that I can blow shit updefend against the rising illegal immigrant/terrorist populationprotect my house from marauding zombies engage in practical self defense training, I had to join the NRA, which I did a couple of weeks ago. Among other things, I was sure they’d send me a bumper sticker like “You can take my gun when you pry it from my cold dead hands” bumper sticker. Instead they sent this:
Actually – forget that. See if you can guess what it is:
As Martin mentioned, I’m getting my concealed carry permit in a few weeks. (Plus six month government security check, because why should law abiding private citizens get to arm themselves?*) Those of you who are in the know already understand that they make 9mm pea shooters that are small enough to holster to your hog (don’t think I haven’t thought about it), but I’m more old fashioned. I’m thinking about a .357 magnum revolver. Not to conceal, just to “have.”
Mrs. Red correctly points out that, for the entirety of my many decades, I’ve never been required to pull out a 6 or 8 shot revolver and blow away any invaders or Osama Bin Laden. That’s true. She thinks maybe my money might be better spent on a home improvement: a hot tub in the back yard. Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Red, she’s telling you she’s into a three-way!” I know, I know, she totally is. But take a look at those guns! No no those guns down here:
