This is just so wrong on so many levels that I’m not even sure whether I should laugh or cry.
My husband quickly nicknamed it the Columbine Kitty, but I’d stick to the much gentler NRA Hello Kitty. What can I say? Kitty got herself a rifle. Because that’s one thing that up until now has been missing from her seemingly bottomless accessory drawer.
No, I didn’t get this at an NRA convention, I don’t frequent those. I found it at a gift shop in Nikko. The name of this particular Hello Kitty cellphone strap style is “Onsen (Hot Spring) Mascot”. And up until now I had no clue whatsoever you were supposed to take your rifle with you when visiting onsen. Gee, you learn something new every day. Thanks Kitty!
This Kitty also has Petit Kitty with her, sadly, this little fella, even though he looks like he’s been hunted, doesn’t have any bullet holes in him. Shucks, he’s not even bleeding. But that’s nothing that an application of a red market couldn’t fix. What was Hello Kitty doing with Petit Kitty at that onsen with that rifle? I don’t wanna know.
The National Riffle Association should buy these in bulk and distribute them to all of their card-carrying members. And if they wanted to corner a new rifle totting market – also to school-age girls everywhere.
