Photo of the Day

It’s from the AP and they’re real boogers about using their photographs* but you can take a look at it here on the Desert Sun site. If you liked the Sisters of Ferris story, you’ll love this photo of a similar pistol-packin’ mama in Karbala.

It’s almost as powerful an image as the purple finger.

I remember a while back there was video of Iranian policewomen practicing with handguns, and of course Qadaffi always travels with his retinue of armed Amazons, so it’s not like women learning to shoot has never happened in Islamic countries before. (Here’s another example: a couple of pictures from 2006 of a female Iraqi soldier on patrol.)

But even knowing all that, the picture still warms my cold, bitter, clingy little conservative heart. However Heller turns out, it’s nice to know that we’re inculcating a self-defense ethic around the world.

(*even though at the link they’ve got options to post the photo to Digg, Reddit, and other social networking sites. How come those sites are invited to use the AP’s photos for free but blogs like Brian Ledbetter’s don’t?)
