A Gun Called “Hope”: Komen Shoots for the Cure

The Susan G. Komen Foundation has reversed their stance on Planned Parenthood and will continue to fund the health organization. Meanwhile a portion of sales from an optimistically named pink and black polymer gun with SgK branding goes to fund breast cancer research. Oddly the link toDiscount Gun Sales, a firearms retailer selling the Walther P-22 Hope Edition has since been disabled since the story via Daily Kos hit the mainstream. Guess Discount Gun Sales is no longer

proud to team up with the Susan B. Koman 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.

Now I wonder how Susan G. Komen feels about child abuse, considering the non-profit

currently funds cancer research at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center to the tune of $7.5 million.
