The New Zealand Herald is horrified by American “gun porn” posts on Instagram. And they make sure to sprinkle plenty of it (i.e. chicks with guns in bikinis) throughout their article on the phenomenon.

According to (Washington Post Magazine writer Simon) van Zuylen-Wood, there are “thousands” of people in the tactical community who post similar content on their platforms each day — especially scantily-clad women like Casey Cook (aka @buff_cookie), and entire accounts dedicated to showcasing women with guns, like @machinegungirls and @bunswithgun.

The comments on these accounts are overwhelmingly positive and most likely moderated.

Ms Robbins’ account, for example, is filled with glowing praise about her looks, style and agenda.

“Wow I think I love you” is one of many gushing comments left on a picture of her firing a gun into a desert sunset in heels, while the most critical comments news.com.au found on Mr Best’s account was that “a real man doesn’t need a gun”.

But that doesn’t mean the trend doesn’t have its share of vocal critics.
