--I can't remember where it was I first read about the "Violence Police Center"* getting all panty-knotted over the Zombie Industries Gun Control Lobbyist bleeding zombie target, the original ads for which featured a photo of some real-life gun-control lobbyists in the background.
Stranger does have a nice piece about a Congressthing feeling the butthurt, but that's not the story I remember.
Be that as it may. "The Brady Center"* To Prevent Self-Defense or whatever they go by these days -- Handgun Control, Inc. in a domino mask -- has decided, a day late and ten dollars short, to join in the manufactured outrage. With that fine sense of who to target that has so distinguished the group, they've drawn a bead not on Zombie Industries, but on Amazon.com. But wait, it gets better: "...[W]hile Amazon may not sell this particular model from Zombie Industries,[....] We call on Amazon to drop Zombie Industries, quickly."
Yes, that's right: You can't buy the Gun Control Lobbyist bleeding zombie target through Amazon. As a matter of fact, none of the "bleeding zombie" targets are mainline Amazon products and most (other than a non-zombie .mil/leo training target) aren't even fulfilled by them. The Bradys, tone-deaf as ever, have missed the fine print, possibly on purpose. Once again, they've gone howling down the wrong well.
Gun control groups: they're holographically wrong.
