Bleeding Obama Zombies, Conceal Carry Bras and Other Wonders of the NRA

by

Because they are such a class act, this weekend's NRA convention in Houston featured lots of cool stuff, including many guns in many sizes (for kids!) and colors (for women!) , life-sized Obama-like Zombie firing range dummies that bleed when shot, another buxom (bleeding) dummy called "The Ex," bras to hold guns and much other lady swag, obviously in pink, and many more guns. An NRA official reportedly asked the Zombie vendor to take down the Obama zombie - named Rocky, though at least one shooter renamed it Barry - and put it behind the counter, just in case anyone thought it was, you know, tasteless.

Another one: A six year-old girl in Florida was shot and critically wounded by her 13-year-old brother. This is insane.

And: Saying he embodies their "core values and beliefs," the NRA has chosen Colorado shooter James Holmes as its new head. From The Onion.
