Janie's Got A Gun...

...and a subhead written on her PJs (click ad). $6! But, "they shoot straight and kill." Looks like Janie already knows how to load it. Better let her test it out on her dolly first, though. (ad from a 1913 Saturday Evening Post, image via). Previously: the instant action Flame Gun.

Iver Johnson, the brand used to kill President Garfield. No idea why I know this.

Bon Iver would not approve of great-grampa's advertising approach.

Gives new meaning to 'better safe than sorry'.

Papa says it won't hurt us while:

mama says...dont use a toaster while standing in the shower
now who can argue with that!
mama says...dont hold your breath for longer than an hour
the woman knows where it's at

mama says...dont drink hot coffee lying down in bed
dont even give it a thought! it's a mess!

you can turn up the heat!
you can turn up the road!
you can carry a beat!
you can carry a load!!

(excerpts from Joe Rappe and Gang - Mama Says Lyrics)

I appreciate the note: "accidental discharge impossible", which is something I look for in any product illustrated by a young girl in her bed.

JosephFinn - Watched 'Assassins' by Stephen Sondheim lately? It's mentioned there. :)

IT IS UNFORTUNATE THAT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SO UNFAMILIAR WITH FIREARMS. THE IDEA THAT ALL FIREARMS OWNERS ARE SCHIZOPHRENIC IS SIMPLY LEFT WING MENTALITY. I CAN PROMISE YOU, IF GUN OWNERSHIP IN THE UNTIED STATES IS EVER ABOLISHED WE WILL BE LITTLE MORE THAN CATTLE. BANNING GUNS SIMPLY DOES NOT WORK, ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA HAVE SEEN A 300 % INCREASE IN CRIME SINCE THEY ABOLISHED PRIVATE GUN OWNERSHIP. A MAN WITH A GUN IS A CITIZEN, A MAN WITHOUT A GUN IS A SUBJECT.
