Colorado Bake Shops Offers Handgun-Shaped Cookies
By Dave Hurteau & Chad Love
What would you like today? Chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, or 9 millimeter?
From the Grand Junction Free Press:
You’ll find them on the bottom rack at the front counter at the Lincoln family’s West Third Street bakery: $2 sugar-cookie goodness shaped roughly in the form of a 9 millimeter.
“Join the Crowd,” a sign reads.
“All sales final.”
“No background checks.”
“No waiting period.”
“Circumvent those pesky taxes. . . .”
[Mary] Lincoln said she was “inspired” by national and local media reports earlier this month explaining a surge of firearm purchases following President-elect Barack Obama’s Nov. 4 victory.
“Just trying to stay on top of the retail game,” she said.
