"Little Red Riding Hood (Has a Gun)"
Marlene Breverman stashed this in What next?
Imagine a world where the characters from your favorite childhood fairy tales and fables are armed.
Hansel with a hunting rifle. Or Little Red Riding Hood’s granny with a shotgun.
That world now exists on the 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 “absolutely sick.”
Gun-rights supporters say the stories — which started with “Little Red Riding Hood (Has a Gun)” and continued with “Hansel and Gretel (Have Guns)” — are a more peaceful alternative to the often disturbing fairy tales from childhood.
