The same store that offers up this display at eye level puts opaque plastic covers over magazines such as Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair and other women’s magazines in the checkout lanes, leaving only the headers visible. Does anyone else see a disconnect here? Who are we trying to protect by covering up cleavages of models and starlets while we have such vulgar exhibits directly above the sports magazines and a few columns over from video game rags and comic books. Helllooo!

How’s this for an idea? Sell gun porn such as this at places that sell firearms and get them out of everyone else’s face. Not as any sort of long term solution so much as a fairly simple, common sense place to start curbing this culture of violence-gone-wild.
(I should mention that the (admittedly crappy) videos were shot just days after the mass murder in Colorado and in the three or so weeks since then, number of gun porn mag’s on display dropped by about 1/3 at one store and almost ½ at another. So the stores have either been catching flack from other customers or, they know it’s bad business practice to exhibit such material at places where families shop. )
