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
via It’s Nice That : Anthony Burrill’s brilliant new posters use innocent victims to lampoon US gun laws.
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.

I worked as a pizza delivery driver, carried a knife everywhere I went, and hid a weapon under the box if I thought I was going into a particularly seedy part of town.(It’s actually fairly easy to keep the weapon hidden during the entire delivery, since there’s an insulating bag that you can tuck it into quietly once the customer proves to be perfectly safe. The customer never needs to be offended at the driver not trusting them implicitly.)
I choose to use CSGV logic and claim that by promoting these targets, the CSGV is encouraging criminals to target pizza delivery people. THE MONSTERS!
(Seriously though, the only effect this is going to have is to increase violent crimes against innocents. Just like everything else they do.)
I was a sandwich delivery driver and I always carried a knife on me, as well as a handgun in my vehicle. Of course, I realize it wouldn’t be of much use in the vehicle if I was attacked outside, but it would have been impossible to conceal it.
Note that all the ‘archtypical examples of innocent victims’ are white. Are they saying that all the AA’s are not innocent?
Then there’s the fact that there was a range of targets portraying alternative individuals like pregnant women and kids to be used as training aids for gov’t agencies. The outcry against those wasn’t by the CSGV and their Laddites but by the gun community.
I deliver pizza and my boss has no problem with me carrying. There’s not a lot more nerve racking than to pull up to a empty house in the dark. The idiot customer forgot to tell us that he had moved. That has a very high pucker factor.
All proceeds…so who do they think is going to buy these? Each other? Gonna wallpaper their houses with them?
