In an effort to push gun-control, ‘artists’ have designed targets with ordinary people on them. Their idea is to get people thinking about gun violence. What they don’t understand is that, that innocent person’s best chance against gun violence is a gun in their hands.
…a team of designers trying to raise awareness about gun control has created targets featuring images of the ordinary people more likely to get shot.
The posters are the work of Ewoudt Boonstra, Zack McDonald, and Anthony Burrill.
“Firing real bullets at zombies, aliens, terrorists and action movie villains seemed like a really bizarre thing to do,” he said. “After seeing a countless number of tragic gun violence stories, we felt that we could make a powerful statement by replacing the ‘bad guys’ with innocent, everyday people.”
“Abused women are five times more likely to be killed if their partners own a gun,” one poster reads.
“Twice as many women are shot by their husbands than by strangers,” reads another.
