My first hate mail was generated from these images. they were shot on film about 1999. Back then there was not much fetishized girls and guns images. The thing I found (and still find) is that the demographic of the people that find these the most offensive are males 18-45. and the demographic of people that like them the most are women 30+, particularly 60+
My personal theory is that they show empowered women and men feel emasculated by them.
