For those parents out there struggling to find the best ways of talking to kids about the Second Amendment, boy do we have the perfect children's book for you.

My Parents Open Carry was written by Brian Jeffs and Nathan Nephew, the co-founders of Michigan Open Carry who feel this issue can't be discussed early enough:

My Parents Open Carry Book

Brian and Nathan decided to pen a book on packing heat in public because, well, they "looked for pro-gun children's books and couldn't find any."

Given the countless number of children killed or injured by firearms each year, one can understand why. The authors feel this is an unfair statement, however.

The synopsis for My Parents Open Carry is as follows:

"Come join 13-year-old Brenna Strong along with her mom, Bea, and her dad, Richard, as they spend a typical Saturday running errands and having fun together."

What's not so typical about this family, the book educationally points out, "is that Brenna's parents lawfully open carry handguns for self-defense."

Piers Morgan concluded his final broadcast of Piers Morgan Live on Friday by addressing a topic that has become synonymous with this British TV personality:

Gun control.

The anchor famously went off on a pro-gun panel after a Naval Yard shooting in September.

And, even more famously following the tragedy in Newtown in December 2012, asked "how many more kids have to die?" before America adopts similar gun laws to those of other first world nations.

Here's a look at what Morgan had to say to wrap up his show last night:

Duck Dynasty stars Phil and Si Robertson believe gun control is not what America needs. Rather, it's sin control and self control that our nation lacks.

“It ain’t gun control we need, it’s sin control,” Si told Men’s Journal.

“Self-control,” corrected elder brother, Phil, the family patriarch.

The brothers and Phil’s sons, Jase, Jep and Willie Robertson are hoping to use their newfound fame to spread the gospel of religion and political conservatism.

"We're trying to infuse a little good into a culture in which gentleness, patience, kindness, self-control, love, joy and peace have become abnormal," Phil said.

It's safe to say Eddie Vedder and Ted Nugent do not see eye-to-eye on the topic of gun control.

The outspoken Pearl Jam singer sits down with Mark Richards in a new interview and makes it take - his consternation, really - on America's current gun control situation as clear as can be.

"The fact that we're living in a country where 90 percent of the people want further gun laws - to maybe somehow put a dent in some of this insanity that's happening - and yet there's no further legislation taking place, it's very frustrating and upsetting," Vedder says.

Vedder even includes himself among those who probably shouldn't be handed a weapon without a thorough background check, telling Richards:

"If I didn't have music to kind of at least get some of the aggression out or take the edge off, you wouldn't want me having a gun either."

Starbucks wants to be an official gun-free zone.

In an open letter on the company's website, CEO Howard Schultz told customers not to bring weapons to Starbucks stores or outdoor seating areas.

Starbucks won't slap an outright ban on guns, he says, because enforcing such a ban "would potentially require our partners to confront armed customers."

He's just asking to please not bring them in.

In an interview with USA Today, Schultz says that "the presence of a weapon in our stores is unsettling and upsetting for many of our customers."

Madonna is making news for yet another photo involving her with a gun, not even 48 hours after the deadly Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C.

While the singer is known for constantly pushing boundaries of decency, she's receiving tons of backlash for her latest stunt promoting her short film.

The upcoming endeavor, which has been dubbed SecretProjectRevolution, is said to be released next week in its entirety. Check out the photo in question:

Madonna Gun Photo

The scene shows Madonna pointing a gun at the floor, with bodies strewn around a living room, including one man who appears to be on top of a piano.

Madonna is seen in a pair of fishnet tights, a black leotard and wearing a black leather glove as she clutches the revolver tightly. What is this for, exactly?

CNN's Piers Morgan says he's getting sick and tired of having the same “ridiculous debate” on gun violence every single time there is a mass shooting,

He made that abundantly clear last night.

Piers absolutely unloaded on conservative radio host Ben Ferguson and gun rights activist John Lott during a heated argument over gun control:

Ferguson, following the Navy Yard shooting, said this was a gun-free zone, so gun control was “a failure in this base with all the best security in the world.”

Morgan countered that the bigger failure is the “failure to do anything” by the elected officials in the U.S. in the wake of countless tragic shootings.

It looks like New Mexico has problems beyond Walter White cooking up a great deal of meth.

A seven-year old first grader at Helen Cordero Elementary in southwest Albuquerque was caught with a loaded 40-caliber glock in his backpack yesterday morning.

He has since been suspended and police are investigating the incident, trying to determine how such a weapon ever made it through security and/or ended up in the child's possession to begin with.

“Seven years old, first grade, it doesn't appear that he meant to harm anyone. He didn't threaten anyone,” said Monica Armenta, Albuquerque Police communications director. “But all the same, there has to be some pretty strict consequences for something like this.”

The child never removed the gun from his backpack and no injuries were reported... but still.

This suspension seems far more warranted than the one for the kid who chewed his Pop Tart into a handgun..

Jim Carrey is sort of sorry to Second Amendment lovers around the country.

In March, the actor came under major fire from conservatives for starring in a Funny or Die video that made fun of gun-toting "motherf%ckers."

He then penned an Op-Ed for The Huffington Post in which he explained his stance in more detail and told critics to calm down.

Now, the star has come out with a series of Tweets that once again revisit the issue, as he tries to make nice with those he offended a few months ago.

Amnesty International has produced a short film spoofing/drawing attention to the global arms trade by presenting the AK-47 in infomercial form.

It may look like a joke, but the group's point is clearly political - that this might as well be how the world's massive gun industry operates today.

Even something as lethal as this assault rifle is so commonplace, many people barely give it a second thought. It might as well be on late night TV.

Take a look below and see what you think:
