Komen Foundation Shoots Itself in the Foot

Literally.

Fresh off the biggest PR disaster of the week/month/year, the de-funding of Planned Parenthood;  the Susan G. Komen Foundation hits the wires again. Only hours after changing its policy on funding and reinstating the Planned Parenthood dollars.

Yes folks, they have partnered with a likely brand… Discount Gun Sales.

Discount Gun Sales is proud to team up with the Susan B. Koman [sic] Foundation to offer the Walther P-22 Hope Edition in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A portion of each P-22 Hope Edition will be donated to the Seattle Branch of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The P-22 Hope Edition has an exclusive DuraCoat Pink slide in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Utilizing the same reliable controls and firing mechanism that has made the Walther P-22 America’s top selling handgun, the Hope Edition will be a limited production pistol offered exclusively through Discount Gun Sales.

Funny, that link is suddenly dead… pun intended. And partnering with gun sales, I suppose you could call that a different kind of birth control.

Seriously! Is no one paying attention over there?

    You’ve got to ask yourself one question – “Do I feel lucky?” Well, do you, pink?
