Some people evidently have way too much time on their hands!

Dr. Seuss’s Cat… got off lightly

Note to the person wielding the pink yarn and the F hook: Dogs forgive. Cats don’t.

But wait, there’s more…

What Not to Crochet: Hello Kitty

And if this isn’t the most bastardised use of a logo and crochet……

I am pretty sure I don’t know what is.

Want a REAL LIFE Hello Kitty rifle? Too bad, it’s not for sale.

Hello Kitty AR-15: evil black rifle meets cute and cuddly

NOTE: “Hello Kitty” is a trademark of Sanrio, Inc. This firearm was built as a parody of the California Assault Weapon ban and this blog posting is for educational purposes and to draw attention to “Assault Weapon” gun laws and to encourage debate on such. This gun is not for sale, nor is any replica or copy of it available for sale on this site.

So called “Assault Weapons Bans” such as the now expired 1994 Clinton ban and the one still in place in states such as California seek to ban rifles that our misguided legislators feel have no purpose in civilian hands. They identify “evil features” they can use to generically classify these “military style” weapons in sweeping terms. Of course these features, such as plastic pistol grips, barrel shrouds, and bayonet lugs have absolutely nothing to do with the firearms potential lethality in the real world and are merely cosmetic features. After all, it really doesn’t matter what color the firearm is if it fires the same ammunition right? Well, in the “spirit” of the California Assault Weapon Ban I decided to do my best to alleviate the fears of my fellow citizens and gun-banning legislators when I put together a new AR-15 for my wife. Below is the result of my painstaking work to transform an Evil Black Rifle (EBR) into a Cute Pink RIfle (CPR). Introducing the Hello Kitty AR-15!
