(CHICAGO) – What’s that old saying? I don’t know what art is but I know it when I see it?
Well first of all, that statement is as dumb as a day-old doughnut because if you don't know what art it is, you sure as heck won't know it when you see it.
But be that as it may, here’s a gun. A good one. AR-15 chambered in .223. Take it, use it, have fun with it but be sure and bring it back kids because in ‘Merica, we need all the guns we can whip up at a moment’s notice.
That seems to be what the artist is saying with this interesting art installation in Chicago – the city where Al Capone and his mob boys used to hold court now and then with a Thompson .45 caliber sub-machine gun, the kind with the exciting 100 round drum magazines. (Now that’s entertainment. No whoosy bed wetter liberals need apply.)
A BBC report says the installation, “is raising eyebrows in its protest of American gun culture. The display, Chicago Gun Share Program, depicts an urban bike-sharing station, but instead pretends to offer people the opportunity to rent a rifle.”
And the best part is it’s highly interactive so the kids will love it. In fact, bring the whole family down. “A sign invites anyone to "unlock and load" a replica high-powered, semi-automatic rifle known as an AR-15.”
More on the story here .
The art was installed in downtown Chicago's Daley Plaza. It was commissioned by the Brady Center, a gun control advocacy group.
And speaking of a Thompson sub-machine gun with a 100 round drum magazine…..
(Happiness is a warm gun. You read it here first kids)
