Bleeding targets for target practice

by Steven Haninger / May 10, 2013 / 2:41 PM UTC
Some bleeding targets pulled

I say this goes way over the top regardless of stated intentions. I'm not going to deny anyone's constitutional rights and strongly feel that anyone who owns a gun should practice with it as well as learn about safety but a desire to shoot at human forms just for laughs isn't, IMO, a healthy exercise. I'd be putting such people on the mentally disabled list in a heartbeat.

It's only purpose would be to mute one's normal adverse reactions to the shedding of human blood.

Addendum

Police and military training could be better served by realism in their simulated exercises and I've no problem with that. Citizens don't need to shooting at human likenesses for fun and games and I think the NRA would do well to seize a PR opportunity here by showing their objections to this form of gun "entertainment".

The vendor had a booth at the NRA Convention

It would stand to reason, then, that someone with the NRA's event planning team approved it. They did draw a line at a "zombie doll" that looked a little too much like the president, so apparently they have some standards, or just feared prosecution.

Just a curiosity

I wonder if there are any other constitutional rights oriented groups who also teach about personal responsibility when exercising those rights.

Yes. We do.
