Pictures of the Day: Human Guns

Bam bam! Ai Weiwei plays guns with his leg...
Artist and activist Ai Weiwei is either weighing in on the gun debate in the United States or is working out his aggressions by using his leg as a weapon...

In the last few days on Instagram he's been posting pictures of himself and others holding their legs up and pointing their toes much like a fleshy rifle.

He's been having a lot of fun exploring this new art form -- creating firearms with your legs. Maybe it will lead to some major art piece, maybe not.

But it seems like a creative outlet that has the potential to have greater implications.

Or am I reading too much into this?
