Send Lawyers, Guns, And Grenade Launchers

Fans of Garden & Gun magazine may want to petition the magazine to launch a sequel–Garden & Grenade Launcher:

During an afternoon tea party at the elegant governor’s mansion in the capital of South Carolina, former Arkansas first lady Janet Huckabee told CNN she is pretty handy with a grenade launcher.

Huckabee, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, said in an interview that she once shot a grenade launcher at a National Guard training camp in Arkansas.

“I have fired a grenade launcher and hit the target two out of three times, so I think that’s pretty good odds for me,” she said, noting that she had a special interest in military matters and has also jumped out of an airplane, flown in an F-16 and shot an MP5 submachine gun.

While readers of Reason magazine aren’t fans of Huckabee’s liberal political stances (and for good reason), they should have few complaints regarding his distaff half.
