The Comfort Gun by Francis North

View all 6 Photos

With all the buzz on gun control, some turn to a more regressive note. The Comfort Gun takes the hyper-protective Americans that sleep with their guns to a thumb sucking, blankey holding bedtime level. A cozy heated water pad in the shape of a gun sits loaded for warm fuzzies all night long. Snug in its holster with a tender loving pink rubber casing intimidates no one, turns a violent icon into a soothing sleeper. Creator Francis North is a second year student at Kingston University speaks about his piece, “For it to work effectively as an object, I had to make sure it has all the visual and tactile characteristics of a real hot water bottle” and describes the design as a “visual statement on the recent status of firearms in America.”

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
