Vanda Purvis works as a waitress for Twin Peaks restaurant in Round Rock, TX. and posed for pictures in the parking lot with a group of Midland sheriffs deputies sporting one of their assault rifles. One deputy was fired and the others were rerimanded over the incident. All the while Purvis, who goes by the name Bambi at the restaurant, is an avid hunter and marksman and actually owns the same rifle she posed with in the photos. She has gained considerable notoriety with increased business and media interviews and is handling the extra attention quite well. For a quick read check out a first glance here Bambi
