Bleeding Gun Control Zombie Mannequin Draws Senator's Ire

The head of a California company that manufactures blood-spurting mannequins built to look like human zombies insisted Wednesday that his company's latest product does not trivialize efforts to strengthen gun laws.

San Diego, Calif.-based Zombie Industries recently put out its new "Bleeding Gun Control Lobbyist," a target built to resemble a jaundiced, middle-aged man dressed in a grey suit with a blue tie and painted with blood around its mouth, chest and forehead. When shot with projectiles, the figure bleeds much in the same way a human would.

On Wednesday, Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy released a letter he had sent to the company's CEO calling the gun control lobbyist zombie "incredibly offensive."

"[Gun violence victims] have suffered in a way that is difficult for anyone to internalize, and their losses are impossible to truly understand," Murphy wrote in a copy of the letter released to the media. "To trivialize these experiences and attempt to portray such knowledgeable, passionate people as villains is a shameless and despicable ploy to make a few bucks."

Did Senator Murphy send a letter to FEMA objecting to the targets of everyday Americans they had ordered?

“To trivialize these experiences and attempt to portray such knowledgeable, passionate people as villains is a shameless and despicable ploy to make a few bucks.”

Hey, this is America, we’re free to do that.
At least this BUSINESS is making money the old
fashioned way, not sponging off the tax payer.

Its too bad that that company couldn’t make a mannequinn of Chris Murphy.He’s as close as your going to get anyway.We all know that democrats never have an original thought anyway.So what harm would be done.

Also The company should continue telling Murphy to stuff it.

I wonder how the Zimmerman trial would be going right now if the prosecution could produce a picture of Zimmerman at the range shooting at one of these targets? I don’t think I would risk that.
