I’m still on semi-hiatus from the blog for a while, but this was too important.

WARNING: Images and video contained in this post are not suitable for viewing by all.  Please exercise discretion.

The NRA had their big convention over this last weekend.  Not only did people like Glenn Beck speak, but vendors from all over the country could come and display their wares.

Elizabeth Plank reports on one of the NRA’s vendors selling some completely inappropriate and heinous items.

Granted, Zombie Industries appears to be a site dealing with preparing the general public for the eminent zombie apocalypse.  However, there is plenty of room to argue about the propriety of selling targets that are supposed to be zombies, but also look alot like humans.

Pictured above, you will see one of the many targets sold by this site.  “The Ex Girlfriend” is a target that is supposed to look like a zombified version of someone’s ex girlfriend.

The point being, I guess, is that you are supposed to take special relish in shooting this target.

Here is a video – from the site itself – about how best to use “The Ex” (This video may be disturbing to some viewers):

Just in case you may not be able to view the video, here is an innocuous screen-grab from it:

As Elizabeth Plank points out in her article, this type of product endorses dangerous behaviors.  Sure, you can call it a zombie all you want, but you sold it based upon the ire some men feel about their exes.

The NRA already has some questionable practices and associations, and this one is just another piece of evidence in support of that hypothesis.

I hope I haven’t disturbed you too much with this horrible media, but awareness is the only way people find out about which things we ought to care.

This is certainly one of them.
