Here's a great way to celebrate the birth of someone who told followers to love their enemies and to turn the other cheek should they get slapped: Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R) took a Christmas card-like photo with her family where they all held guns. Yup — even the five-year-old.

You know how there's always a kiosk at the mall that sells themed calendars, and one of the calendars always features a bunch of pin-ups holding guns? Apparently, Assemblywoman Fiore decided to make one starring herself, mostly featuring photos like these. But it was the Christmas photo, which she shared on her Facebook on December 1st, that captured the heart of America right in the middle of national-conversation-about-guns season.

It's up to Americans to protect America. We're just your ordinary American family.-With love & liberty, Michele

"From my family to yours, merry Christmas and happy holidays," the photo says, which would also be a really badass thing to say to someone before you shoot them.

"It's up to Americans to protect America," the Facebook post says, a statement which contains subtext that should really be unwrapped, much like a Christmas gift. 

By the way, in case you can't read the small text in the upper left hand corner of that card, it lists the names of all the people in Fiore's beautiful family and what they're packing: from left to right, Beretta 92FS, Glock 30 .45ACP, Serbu Super-Shorty 12-gauge shotgun, Extar EXP-556, Walther P22 (LR), Glock 19 9mm and Glock 30 .45ACP. To be clear, those are the guns she and her family are holding, not what she named her kids—although you could be forgiven for making that mistake.
