What does the bumper sticker "My other car is a gun" mean?

You know, like my other car is a ferrari. It's just a play on the other bumper sticker.
 

My parents once owned two 1984 Toyota Tercel station wagons. They really wanted to get a custom bumper sticker made for each of them that said, "My other car is a 1984 Toyota Tercel station wagon."

Never happened. :(

I think gunowners use the idea that "cars kill people too, cars can be used as weapons too"

That'd be my guess, you'd have to verify that with Mr. Heston. If he can remember.

My favorite bumper sticker has to be "These are not the droids you're looking for"

I think it's just a play on the typical bumper sticker you play, but unfortunately it is poorly executed, not witty, does not make any sense, and is quite lame.

I'm pretty certain that it is built off of the concept that both a gun and a car can kill people. Based off of that, you could say that the driver of said car is either an angry / aggressive driver or a bad driver. Since their other car is a gun, you may not want to trust them to stop at a stop light or anything...

It doesn't make any sense to me.

Speaking of gun bumperstickers, I like the "Original Boys in the Hood" ones, with the KKK guys in their sheets. You can get it in a t-shirt, too.

In that case my other car is a cigarette. :D

Indeed, and is probably found most often on rusted out pickup trucks with gun racks and rebel flags.

It means "don't fvck with me", it's pretty stupid, and hardly what I would call "pro NRA".

Ummmm, that's not really a gun thing.

I think it's a mixed metaphor, sorta like "Does the Pope sh!t in the woods?" or "You can have your cake and lie in it too"

Well, I think they have rifles or something. I originally found them at a gun show, too, so I figure it's all gravy.
