Here’s something cool to spice up your Friday. One of the hottest trends on BuzzFeed or HuffPo these days to reimagine Disney characters as something else. Realistic, or Renaissance paintings. Gender swapped. Whatever.
Well, perhaps inspired, the NRA took childhood fairytales and made them… badass.
[T]he National Rifle Association’s NRA Family website, which partnered with author Amelia Hamilton “to present her twist on those classic tales” – a series that has infuriated gun-control advocates, some of whom called it “disgusting”.
What are they so peeved about? Well, passages like this:
The wolf leaned in, jaws open wide, then stopped suddenly. Those big ears heard the unmistakable sound of a shotgun’s safety being clicked off. Those big eyes looked down and saw that grandma had a scattergun aimed right at him. He realized that Grandmother hadn’t been backing away from him; she had been moving towards her shotgun to protect herself and her home.
“I don’t think I’ll be eaten today,” said Grandma, “and you won’t be eating anyone again.”
Any time leftists are outraged over something, you know it must be good. Like Star Wars and Ayn Rand. These re-told stories feature the likes of Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. Not carrying baskets. No cupcakes for grandma this time, kids. Just treats with a bit more pop. Less sugar, more gun powder.
Hamilton’s latest story, published last week, tells the revised tale of “Hansel and Gretel,” who “had been taught how to safely use a gun and had been hunting with their parents most of their lives” – and who took their survival skills into the woods. The gun-rights twist depicts the pair as heroes who had gone hunting and discovered other kids captured by the witch.
At the end of this story, the kids are saved and the witch is locked up. These modified versions promote gun safety and using guns for a purpose, such as hunting or self-defense. You know, as they are in the real world. Of course, gun-control nuts lost it. So they took to Twitter to do what they do best: ruin everything.
Jack & Jill went up hill. Jack fell down & dropped his gun. Gun discharged. That was the end of Jill. #NRAFairyTales

The other ducks made fun of him and called him ugly. So, he brought a gun to the pond and no one called him ugly again. #NRAFairyTales

In all seriousness though, keep these folks in your thoughts and prayers. Having a stick lodged in your anus is a serious condition.
Let’s also remember leftists have zero problem trying to indoctrinate children using cartoons. Read FINALLY: Transexual Teddy Bear Teaches Your Children about Transgenderism… Yet no hashtags were made. Leftists also revere anyone pretty who pushes their agenda. Isn’t that what the left was basically saying when they were praising Leo for his Oscars speech? (see Dear Leonardo DiCaprio: You Self-Righteous, Hypocritical, Energy-Guzzling Jackass).
But when an entity like the NRA comes along to illustrate how much differently fabled stories would’ve been with guns, all holy jihad breaks loose. Even though it’s a pretty clever way to teach youngins about the proper way to use a gun. Notice none of these stories advocate going out to mass murder people, or suicide bomb anyone. But, to be fair, Muslim terrorists already has the corner on that market.
