Give that America’s Dmitry Moor has a less than stellar track record, he probably won’t complain. Much. ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Remington and Federal Ammunition Raise $100,000 for Ukraine Relief Efforts Gun Owners Need to Think Like Supply Chain Managers Before the Next Ammo Shortage The CDC Is Politicizing Violent Crime Data Involving Guns…Again…Still… 37 COMMENTS The caption is a tortured sentence. What is it even trying to say? Reply +1 Reply Agreed. The 240kb .png isn’t helping anything either. Reply +1 My teacher sense is going off. Ummm… run on? Reply +1 Reply Needs a comma. Reply It could take two from the Second Amendment, but at least that sentence is eay to understand. Reply Isn’t it trying to be close to the poorly written original? no. I prefer the original. Reply Wait, I am lost, which original? The first anti-NRA ad or some other one? Also, is the awful grammar an attempt to fool people into believing that the NRA is unintelligent? Reply I prefer the Shepard one (the anti-nra one) even though I disagree with the message. For one thing the graphics are cooler. And the wording has a cool, succinct ring to it. It is a fine piece of propaganda, because it has hooks. This one, lacks the hooks. I wouldn’t be opposed to putting the original on my gun locker. Similar to the way that as a free-marketeer I still enjoy the artwork of communist propaganda posters. Reply This is great if you want more anti-gunners to believe were all just illiterate rednecks. Reply I took a couple of cracks at it just yesterday, trying to keep it in the vein of the original and without falling into traditional gun rights cliches: http://i.imgur.com/gpoh9Dh.jpg http://imgur.com/a/olbkS#3 Reply Nice. Your work is at least readable, versus the grammatical mess printed above. Reply My coworkers all understood it. Just a mess of ignorant redneck phd holding scientists, we are. Reply Cleaned up the “Assault Weapons” and Standard Capacity Magazines version here: http://imgur.com/a/olbkS#0 Reply I like the Bloomberg one the best. Reply Yeah, after seeing another post with the $ on here I made it and added it to the album. I believe it fits the propaganda theme pretty well. (The link above was originally to another one in there, but the additional picture bumped it down.) Reply @dshim83; Needs work but the images with Bloomberg prominently highlighted are a hit. Reply So who here like irony? http://www.obeygiant.com/headlines/shepard-fairey-x-gary-baseman-collaborate-on-partisan-print#more-52800 Maybe Shepard’s right we don’t need assault weapons, we need sub machine guns! Reply So essentially he’s saying, “freedom fighters are good as long as they’re historical figures in foreign countries” Reply The gun grabbers have a new term for defensive gun usage. Outlier. Reply I’ve got one: http://i.imgur.com/4zsaX9a.jpg Reply Good one. Yours inspired me for this: http://i.imgur.com/JoNKrbO.png Reply Now that is just classy. Reply Luckily I’m wearing my decoder ring today! In the land of the free there are riflemen who go unrecognized in our commonplace lives. When the time comes to show force, be it defensive or otherwise, they’re pushed to the forefront of our attention as saviors. Once the commotion has settled these honorable people are forgotten once more until the day history repeats itself. Or something like that… Reply Here you go. What a douchenozzle. Fairey being pleasant to his wife. Reply Wife beater. Typical anarcho-marxist. Reply Huh? Reply Shepard Fairey, sticking his nose where it does not belong. oh wait he started his “career” illegally defacing private property? criminal background history but hey as long as he made an anti-gun flyer its fine. Reply Clap if you believe in Fairey. Waiting. Crickets. Reply bwahahaha! I refuse to use my weapons to preserve defective DNA…. Reply Here is my shot at an edit: The land of free riflemen–on whom you sometimes forget you depend–who are the last adults in the room and are needed to defend you disarmed people from tyranny every few decades. A more stylized one: The land of free riflemen who stand constant vigil against the criminal and the tyrant. I hope Don N. doesn’t mind attempts to clean up his words. Reply Certainly not. Better than condesending jabs. The point I was trying to convey in a single sentence is that the reason places like the UK can pretend they don’t need civilian gun ownership to maintain their freedom is that the US will always be there to bail them out. It’s like some child bragging to their dad that they don’t need a job because they can just get food from the kitchen. And looking at dad like he is crazy for going to work all day. Reply You’re welcome. As a trained legal writer, I can say that everyone’s writing could use a boost every once in a while, mine included. I did love the point of your prose, but I was thinking more of the backyard gun grabbers than the Brits you called out. No matter, the only difference between all those pansies are their accents and beverage preferences. Reply Fairey may be an idiot about guns and the 2nd Amendment, but I’ll admit, I like this poster: http://www.obeygiant.com/prints/the-black-hills-are-not-for-sale Reply I have one up here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-DjyovHYzbxU/UXoSoLrtktI/AAAAAAAAAe0/HgPJLNnbar8/s1600/parodygungrabposter.jpg Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
