A provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.

here is a video that backs up the theory

Oops, must have hit a nerve. The company web page for these targets has been deleted. I was going to call them but obviously they got the message that they went to far. The only target they forgot to list was a mother pushing a baby stroller, how ridicules!

I'm not the kind to suppress any opinion BUT my impression of this video is that this is very fringe ant-left propaganda. im sure the targets exist, and anyone can become a threat so I understand why there might be some value in using them for training. I don't see any hard evidence that points to this being some big policy and preparation change for the obama administration. Really just seems to be an outlandish hypothesis that these 2 guys in the video are hyping up. i also thought it was funny when the guy was saying "obama just wants to push his agenda" ...thats kind of what presidents do, buddy! While righties might not want lefty policies, I don't expect anything that sinister is going on.

On a side note. I found a bunch of hair band posters at a garage sale a few years back. I bought the lot for 5 bucks...took em to the gun range and hung one up (i think it was ratt). They told me I couldn't shoot at the rock stars and made me put the posters back in my car =[.

just for the record I am by no means a tinfoil hat guy BUT I am not so blind that I ignore warning signs either (execpt stop signs at 2am )

Michael: They told me I couldn't shoot at the rock stars and made me put the posters back in my car =[.
BSG:so I guess these would be a NO-NO too. the guy said he sold out in two days.... taste good or tasteless?

I ordered some targets from this company. Shipping was low and targets were great. I ordered the full color hostage type targets. The gun range I go to also thought they were pretty cool to. At first they balked because the rules will not allow celebrities, politicians or famous persons faces on targets.

I'll play devil's advocate on "non-traditional" targets for *military* use. There are well documented cases of women and kids being used in terrorist attacks overseas - even pregnant women (or women disguised as pregnant). Many military and law enforcement personnel have very antiquated ideas of who poses a threat. If some notion of chivalry prevents a soldier from shooting at a female opponent, or even causes a delay in response, it could absolutely cost lives. Remember that a firearm is indeed the great equalizer, and plenty of weapons that cause mass casualties don't require great strength or stamina, either. Our enemies have figured this out.

That being said, I think it's wildly inappropriate (and petty) to shoot at a photo of any real person without a very good strategic or tactical excuse. Evil person or not.
