Innocent Targets is a series of shooting range posters depicting archetypal examples of the innocent victims killed by gun-related crimes in the USA each year. Anthony explains: “There are an estimated 18,000 shooting ranges operating in America today. Many of these sell custom targets featuring thugs, terrorists, aliens and zombies. The painfully ironic truth is that the real targets of gun violence aren’t these fictional ‘bad guys’ but rather our real-life friends, neighbours, co-workers and children.”
The quotes included on each of the posters remind viewers of the sheer absurdity of America’s gun crime situation, with all proceeds from the series – which can be purchased here – going to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. It seems that Anthony has happened on an incredibly worthwhile cause to which he can turn his hand
Mr. Burrill is a British graphic artist that apparently knows about “gun violence” as much as he does about the proper cooking of grits in Alabama.
I found it profoundly ironic (and proof positive both the author and Burril are idiots) that the artist of the article chose a pizza delivery guy as the first poster/target to display in support of the propaganda series:
Pizza Delivery guys are one of the most targeted working people by criminals. Who else can be set up to come to an ambush by simply a phone call? And if they decide not to be victims and defend themselves, they will end up fired as corporation lawyers still think that it is cheaper to pay for a funeral than allow drivers to carry a concealed weapon and risk a lawsuit by a bereaved member of the critter’s family. In fact, it was a pizza delivery gone almost gone wrong that started a new era in police officer security when Richard Davis was attacked by several individuals delivering a pizza to an abandoned location and he defended himself with his gun. Mr. Davis went on to create Second Chance Body Armor and the first effective and wearable vest in the market.
But as usual, it is convenient for the Gun Control cadre to make sure those who have the greatest chance of meeting harm, remain so. It only makes sense to have a constant pool of victims to feed their machines.
