Pink guns
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

I propose a simple solution to the ongoing debate about assault weapons: Let people buy and own as many assault weapons as they like, as long as they're all painted pink (maybe with cute little flowers and bunnies on them).

The folks who buy assault weapons to look cool and macho (and to compensate for small genitalia) wouldn't be caught dead carrying a pink gun, while the anti-gun folks who oppose assault-style weapons because they're scared of the way they look won't feel as threatened.

Best of all, I'm pretty sure the Second Amendment doesn't gives citizens the right to choose the color of their arms.
