To an Israeli, the photo makes perfectly practical sense. When soldiers
take their weapon off military premises, they must guard it closely and
keep it on their person, at all times. Having one's weapon stolen is
harshly punished with time in military prison a given.

Robert Farago at The Truth About Guns asks, "What’s Wrong With This Picture: Other Than Nothing Edition":
“A photo of a gun-wielding, bikini-clad woman standing on a crowded Tel Aviv beach has become an Internet sensation,” nydailynews.com reports, “with thousands of viewers curious about whether the brunette beauty is part of Israel’s military and why she wasn’t in uniform with her weapon in tow.”
A liberal will look at this picture and worry that the beach might be dangerous because it's filled with gun-toting women. Actually, it's the opposite. It's better to pack a gun and show a little cheek than be unarmed and turn the other cheek.
