Stopped by Cheyl Wheeler's web site and what do I find if not a photo of her, made for an album cover:

Doesn't go very well with her urge to take everyone else's property (and means of self-defense) away.

If It Were Up to Me
Words and Lyrics by:

copyright 1999 Rounder/Philo

Maybe it's the movies, maybe it's the books
Maybe it's the bullets, maybe it's the real crooks
Maybe it's the drugs, maybe it's the parents
Maybe it's the colors everybody's wearin
Maybe it's the President, maybe it's the last one
Maybe it's the one before that, what he done
Maybe it's the high schools, maybe it's the teachers
Maybe it's the tattooed children in the bleachers
Maybe it's the Bible, maybe it's the lack
Maybe it's the music, maybe it's the crack
Maybe it's the hairdos, maybe it's the TV
Maybe it's the cigarettes, maybe it's the family
Maybe it's the fast food, maybe it's the news
Maybe it's divorce, maybe it's abuse
Maybe it's the lawyers, maybe it's the prisons
Maybe it's the Senators, maybe it's the system
Maybe it's the fathers, maybe it's the sons
Maybe it's the sisters, maybe it's the moms
Maybe it's the radio, maybe it's road rage
Maybe El Nino, or UV rays
Maybe it's the army, maybe it's the liquor
Maybe it's the papers, maybe the militia
Maybe it's the athletes, maybe it's the ads
Maybe it's the sports fans, maybe it's a fad
Maybe it's the magazines, maybe it's the internet
Maybe it's the lottery, maybe it's the immigrants
Maybe it's taxes, big business
Maybe it's the KKK and the skinheads
Maybe it's the communists, maybe it's the Catholics
Maybe it's the hippies, maybe it's the addicts
Maybe it's the art, maybe it's the sex
Maybe it's the homeless, maybe it's the banks
Maybe it's the clearcut, maybe it's the ozone
Maybe it's the chemicals, maybe it's the car phones
Maybe it's the fertilizer, maybe it's the nose rings
Maybe it's the end, but I know one thing.
If it were up to me, I'd take away the guns.

Sums it up nicely, eh?
They are trying to put a spin on this discrepancy at

Who is this pig? If it were up to me, I'd take away her refrigerator.

You have to wonder what kind of aberrant mentality is necessary to be able to rationalize using firearms in a "gag" photo as OK, while condemning anyone who would use them for their intended purpose of self defense.
There must be a defective chromosome somewhere in some of these show business types that allows this sort of reasoning.

It did succeed as a gag photo -- I had just about lost my lunch looking at that humanoid! Sheesh...I've seen javelinas who showed more decency and grace.

Anyway, I posted this to Usenet, too...hope folks out there can use this to counter the ani arguments.
