Thoughts? Do you find gun control jokes not even funny? hahaCOMMENT
Under the guise of “safety” as always. First up a peter pan flip:
Alice in Wonderland:
There you have it. Kids are stupid, and they will shoot themselves or someone else if you don’t keep your gun inside a safe. This “ask your neighbor… is there a gun where they play?” thing is fine and all… but I still think the root of the problem should be addressed, which is educating the kids. We tell kids not to drink poison, not to ride bikes without helmets, to look both ways before they cross the street etc… The smart ones generally listen. Some die, most don’t. I don’t know why it’s just out of the realm of comprehension to expect that the smart kids who are educated about what to do if they find a gun will also handle it accordingly and live a long life.
What’s the point of making the video look oldschool and using decades old themes like Alice and Pan? Judging by the “Generation Lockdown” splash page they have set up, this is likey their weak attempt to relate to Millennials. *Yawn*
Approximately 2000 bricks later:COMMENT
This is how it goes. One company is creative, and gets tons of coverage… then there’s always someone trying to get famous by doing basically the same thing:
The company who did this new one is called Precision Syndicate. They did a pretty nice job on it, I’ll give them that. I apparently just expect way too much out of people and companies though, because I really think that this description could have used a gentlemanly nod to the first guys who did it. Since it’s the internet though, there are millions of people who will see the Precision Syndicate one and have no idea it was “done befo”. Scrolling the comments, I don’t see any mention of the Black Sheep Arms one by anyone and there are ~150,000 shares on the post at the time of writing this. I had to stop reading the comments after about 30 seconds, because I feel stupider than I did before I started. I find that’s facebook in a nutshell… people seem to make it their job on there to always find something new to be outraged about.

Currently vaporware, and naturally going to be “crowd funded”:
Part of me dies every time I see people not willing or able to just bring a damn product to market on their own and sell it. This “crowd funding” thing really gets on my nerves because if I want something I want it NOW… I don’t want it in weeks (at the very best) or months. Looking on the ZORE website in the spot you’d assume you could buy one of these things, there is just a place to harvest email addresses so they can let you know when the crowd funding campaign starts.
People LOVE jamming gadgets and widgets and apps into every aspect of their life, so I’m sure this will sell very well. I’m never one for asking for MORE batteries, computers, and technology in my life… especially in the realm of firearms. I don’t care how awesome they say their app is or the revolutionary combination-lock dial which is designed to allow quick unlocking under any circumstances, even in the dark. Direct quote – “To unlock, just turn the dial a few notches back and forth according to your PIN code, regardless of the dial starting point and the initial dialing direction. You won’t realize how fast it is until you try it yourself.” Yea ok bros, I’m sure that will work great in high stress situations.
“NON-PROFIT CORPORATION” VODA INC. Three minutes of incoherent rambling with voice altered audio:
From the video description: “Many have asked me why I am the “WOLF”” <– LOL sure they have buddy.
If you recall, I blogged / roasted this guy a couple weeks back and a few of you absolutely cooked him in the comments. Surprisingly, from what I could see with a cursory scan his facebook page has absolutely no one trolling him on it. Just a lot of support. *shrug* Allllllright then.
Additionally, it pisses me off that he’s sullying Jay-Z’s good name with the background music choice.
