Happiness is a warm gun

This is a bit of a spin on the theme, but I couldn't resist it.

There was a time when the British policeman (the ??Bobby on the Beat?) was famous for being unarmed ?? don??t get me wrong, most still are unarmed. But unfortunately, this is becoming a more and more common sight on London's streets. I stopped and spoke to this guy and he was perfectly friendly; just a guy doing his job. I??m just sorry we live in a world where his job is necessary.

Ok, serious stuff over ?? back to being silly: Happiness is a warm gun [youtube.com](The Beatles)

Great shot - was tempted to do a similar shot (but wouldnt have been half as good as your capture) a few weeks ago when we were all on terror alert and the police were stationed everywhere in Birmingham - didnt have the nerve to take a piccie though....

that beatles song is one of my favorite ones... and you're absolutely right to confront it with this picture.

a "warm gun", btw. has not only a sexual connotation, it also is very literally what you have in your hands when you start shooting.

Great post. I nearly posted pictures of my own guns today. I guess I'll have to do that another day. Mine aren't nearly as impressive as what he's packing, though.

The lyrics sound like that:
"When I hold you in my arms
And I feel my finger on your trigger
I know nobody can do me no harm
Because Happiness is a warm gun"
It's not exactly what it makes me think of.
The picture is great
