    “A reminder of the freedoms we fought so hard for.”…and they all carried watermelons.

    This isn’t a “family photo”, it’s from a poster opposing gun control, and someone has trimmed off the caption. The posters were all claiming that advising people to just flee from violence is ignorant and insensitive because many people cannot, yet have just as much a right to life. The first one in the series was a guy in a wheelchair. There was also a mom with three little kids clinging to here, and a couple of old folks talking about their heart conditions.

    This one, obviously, is of a pregnant women and observes that running whilst pregnant is like running while carrying a watermelon; she’d be much safer with the pistol.

    there is something sexy about a woman with a gun and a watermelon, it’s like it appeals to at least three of my favorite things

  21. yvonne says:

    I never thought of using a gun to open up the watermelons at our family picnics, I always used a kitchen knife, go figure!!

  28. inoges says:

    is that a melon in your arm, or are you just mad to see me??

  29. Hannah says:

    I’m thinking since this is a fourth of july picture it’s about bearing fruit and bearing arms. I don’t know how they’re related, but that’s my guess. I’m absolutely flabbergasted by this picture.

  30. Susan E says:

    What must the photographer at Olan Mills have thought? Okay, lady, calm down. There’s no sitting fee for the melon.

  31. sunny says:

    I just do not get this photo!

  32. Dave says:

    Does she know Bait and Shoot is illegal in most states?

  33. mugglywump says:

    I don’t know but I’ve been told,
    Shootin’ a watermelon is mighty cold!

  34. CG13 says:

    Um. Why?

  35. Amy says:

    Her mistake that she’s left her son in the car and brought the watermelon in for the family photo won’t be fully noticed by her until she heads home to tuck the baby in for a nap and carve up the melon.

  36. Ed says:

    You can have my melons when you pry them from my dead, cold … uh, … what was I talking about?

  37. Monica says:

    This is my watermelon, this is my gun. This is for fighting, this is for fun.

  38. Chris says:

    Maybe she has a Watermelon farm and before entering there is a HUGE cutout sign of this picture posted up on the side of a hill with a caption “Trespassers will be shot.”
