On Thursday, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) posted a sexually explicit photo of a handgun’s magazine. She used the photo to call for gun control, but the magazine turned heads.
“No one needs a hundred rounds for their handgun. Ban high capacity magazines. Reasonable gun reform NOW!” the senator’s official Twitter account posted.
Along with this message, the esteemed senator included a grotesquely large magazine with a rather phallic shape. This is not fake news:

Should the senator come to her senses, here is a screenshot of her tweet, memorialized for the ages.
This 9mm Glock 100 round magazine has not even gotten an official patent, but it is available for sale online for $450.00. Ironically, the size and *ahem* shape of the magazine would make this gun extremely difficult to wield, rendering it much less dangerous than small-magazine alternatives. Furthermore, handgun magazines are easy to unload and replace, so banning high-capacity magazines would likely only make a small impact.
In pushing for limits on gun magazines, this California senator posted a sexually explicit image of an unwieldy magazine that is more novelty item than weapon, and she wants Americans to take her calls for gun control seriously?
Is Feinstein trying to make a mockery of herself and her cause?

PJ Media’s own Stephen Green, a.k.a. “Vodka Pundit,” found a similarly phallic gun image, in witty repartee.

Contrary to Democrat insinuations, further restrictions on guns will not make Americans safer. In fact, the cities that have the strictest gun restrictions have the highest rates of gun violence. With the increase of gun sales, crimes involving guns have actually gone down.
Another suggested solution to the problem of school shootings — allowing gun-adept teachers to conceal carry in schools — would likely make a greater impact, and President Obama himself once supported this policy.
Feinstein and her fellow Democrats could open their horizons to plans like this one, supported by President Trump in his speech at CPAC. Instead, they push for gun control at all costs, and post images of exactly the kind of guns they may fantasize about controlling…
