Yeah it was the gun.....

I think they were looking for any excuse to not hurt their feelings

She is what is known as a "dog"

Give the guy some slack. Of course he's going to blame the gun. What's he going to do, tell his wife she's not a super model? She's armed for Christ's sake.
 
2014-04-06 08:48:01 AM
Pretty sure the gun wasn't the reason they were rejected.

To hell with beauty. I'm not even sure she's People.

Once upon a time I was a member of the NRA and a registered Republican.....then I got better.  The reason I had a change of heart is because I went out and met NRA members and registered Republicans.

FTFA: "I don't think there is anything more beautiful than a woman holding a handgun,' Bob Ferris says"

So your wife is ugly and her holding a gun is the only way you can get a boner. Perhaps the NRA has some sort of fetish periodical she would qualify for. Im sure he's not the only one with this submissive kink.

A) he did this on purpose
B) she' shoukd have been turned done for not being attractive
C) people was stupid to let any of her pictures in

Husband outraged after wife's gun-toting photo was rejected from magazine beauty contest

I envy people who have the mental bandwidth to get outraged by nothing

A third, weaponless, shot hit the target and was accepted by People.

Quicherbichin and be happy that any of them were accepted.

Wolf892: She looks exactly how I picture white trash, and he looks exactly how I'd picture a male would look if he requires a gun to feel manly.

They both reek of low class.

They rejected the two photos with guns, but not the third without.  Their issue was with the guns.

People magazine is not infringing your Constitutional rights by rejecting the images.  They have the right to choose not to promote anything they don't want to promote by not publishing submitted images.

If you want to see how to properly photograph beautiful women with firearms, check out the women of the IDF.  That's not just a comment on subjective beauty, by the way.  Context is important.  The guns in the images this guy submitted look ridiculously out of place - they may as well have been photoshopped in.

Snert.

EggSniper: They rejected the two photos with guns, but not the third without.  Their issue was with the guns.


Maybe, but I also sincerely doubt they would have accepted multiple images from the same woman as well. Its's for a mix article of user submitted photos, not a focus on her. One should do.

I also don't like the first two just as compositions, but art is subjective.
 
2014-04-06 09:04:29 AM
Thats not a gun, she's just happy to see you.

I also noticed that she likes to keep her finger on the trigger regardless of intent to fire.  Maybe that's the real reason they rejected it, poor gun safety.

Taking a morning dump is an important part of my life.  Yet I don't submit photos of me squatting on the can to magazines.

AngryDragon: At least we're getting the daily Fark gun circle-jerk out of the way early.


Well, since there's no way to white-knight these assholes, I guess all you can do is whine about the thread existing.
We all a[pologize profusely for being amused by that which does not amuse you.
 
2014-04-06 09:13:57 AM
Look at them, they're some attention whores!

Yeah, they knew exactly what they were doing and they couldn't lose either way. She gets accepted to the beauty contest and they make a statement about guns being acceptable. They get rejected and they whine about discrimination.
 
2014-04-06 09:14:07 AM
Maybe the judges don't find women holding guns to be beautiful.
 
2014-04-06 09:18:32 AM
"The couple didn't elaborate on how a deadly weapon is relevant to a beauty contest"

Because they can`t. Because it isn`t.

She's got such a sad look on her face. Like, "if I do this for you, then will you please put some clean underwear on when my mother comes over? This one thing, I beg you, I'm not even asking you to wear pants."

It's so hot.

If I see you with a gun anywhere besides a shooting range or out hunting I'm not going to notice how pretty you are because I'll be too busy evaluating you as a threat.

Do not, under any circumstances, walk down the street in Fairbanks. Your threat detector will explode.

50 miles? Just cross 80. Some people will tell you 55, but they're snobs.
