Skip to comments.Company selling targets with images of Americans to DHS for firearms training
Posted on 02/21/2013 10:12:36 PM PST by Jet Jaguar
Law Enforcement Targets, Inc., a company that sells law enforcement and federal agencies realistic paper targets for firearms training, is providing the Department of Homeland Security with images of non-traditional threats.
The people in these images are most likely Americans, with such images as pregnant woman threat, older man with shotgun, older man in home with shotgun, older woman with gun, young school aged girl, young mother on playground, and little boy with real gun, writes Paul Joseph Watson on Tuesday.

As Watson points out, there would have to be a demand among the agencies to which the company sells in order to put these products on the market.
Law Enforcement Targets Web site declares that these targets are designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training, and are meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.
The line of images is called "No More Hesitation," implying that law enforcement shouldn't hesitate to kill these people just because they're Americans.
Speculation that the DHS is preparing for fighting within the United States has abounded for some time. Over the last year, the department has purchased nearly 2 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition of various calibers, enough to fight a 30 year war and shoot every American man, woman and child four times.

Oh, now THAT’S hilarious!!!
Has it ever been done any other way?
riri ~ Has it ever been done any other way?
Sadly, no. Even more sad is the simple fact that the very people who made the revolution possible are ALWAYS on the hit list.
They have proven that they:
have a traitorous mindset.
are willing to act to overthrow their own government.
have the organizational skills needed for a successful revolution.
have the military skills to wreak havoc.
Still, they are invariably surprised when it is their own back against the pockmarked wall, every single time, every single revolution, without exception.
I didn’t listen to all of Beck, but didn’t hear him mention this. Listening to Rush now and not a peep.
Nothing of FOX news or any other off-line media that I’m aware of.
Are they all oblivious or have they been ordered to give it a good looking away and shuttin’ up?
If anyone sees this appear on “big media” - conservative or otherwise - drop us a link, won’t ya?
I have a feeling that the goombahs are in major damage control / denial mode over it, and very few “normal” American sheeple are going to know this ever happened.
I haven’t checked but assume that all of the major “SNOPES” like sites are trying to debunk it as a hoax as hard as they can in an attempt to head the viral e mails off at the pass.
Has anyone put up a You Tube about it yet? (Maine Prepper has but it’s audio only)
If I see a man wearin' a blue helmet I shoot the man wearin' it!
Give that a shot. ;-)
I had some JBT telling me on Facebook yesterday that he would ABSOLUTELY take that shot, because he was “confident” that he would only hit the woman. (Who looks like a young girl, not a woman, to me)
I’d put the X ring where the 9 is. No point risking that the helmet actually works...
You have yet to provide any. How can one become immune?
I don’t doubt that he would take the shot. Some people on this thread would defend him, even if he did take out the children.
“Nits make lice”...
How many of "you" are there?
If you'll check the target sizes listed at the webpage posted here on FR, you'll note there are also other sized targets for sale that aren't appreciably larger than 23"x35".
RE your #139; Be careful.
Some years ago I was chatting with a gun store owner in NH who told me that someone had made up some photocopied pictures of the Slickster with a bulls eye on them, which he had laying on the counter as a joke... until a BATFE Agent swaggered in and told him on no uncertain terms to make them go away as it is apparently a federal felony to even possess a depiction of the POTUS which can be construed to be a target, much less get caught shooting at one.
He was talking hard time in Club Fed and loss of gun rights for life.
I don’t know if that applies to other politicians as well, but if you shoot anywhere where a fed or untrusted LEO is even apt to show up or be surveiling you I wouldn’t advise pushing your luck.
They can shoot at pictures of us, but they’d better not catch us shooting at pictures of them.
Some animals are more equal than others, you know.
I've never had the opportunity to shoot indoors. I do my shooting outdoors where I do my hunting.
I don’t need no steenking targets. I was a natural shot from day 1. ;-)
And he was a nutcase.
What exactly will they be looking for when there are 100+++ guys looking for
their one shot of opportunity then melting back into the background of the city?
If it was a hoax, then why do they have an apology for said ‘hoax’ on the front page of their web site?
This is what you people aren’t quite getting. If this were a hoax, then why are they apologizing for it? If it were a hoax, then someone has gone to pretty great lengths to create a company, a product and a marketing campaign in the furtherance of said hoax. This would be one of the better hoaxes since the Piltdown Man.
The people here on FR who keep thinking it is some hoax are fooling themselves. To quote you:
“... would a professional company, who had just scored a lucrative government contract, allow such glaring adolescent errors...?”
The answer is “yes.” After all, this is the same company that peddles “reactive” target augmentation to make your targets “bleed” and has zombie targets. You want adolescent, there you go. Who, in their right mind in the gun business, peddles some product to make paper targets “bleed?” Where’s the upside in training for the negative PR that brings?
Here’s their PR clip:
“EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTOR of the Pink Mist Tech “Blood Pack”. Pink Mist is a revolutionary new product that instantly turns ANY paper target into a reactive BLEEDING target. Easily identify a good hit with realistic splattering of blood. Perfect for Law Enforcement, Military, as well as enthusiasts who are partial to Zombie and Animal targets. Also works great under a light colored T-Shirt for even more realism”
WTF? Really? I’ve been on dozens and dozens of ranges in my life, and my first reaction is “Who is going to clean that crap up?” My second reaction is “What a freakin’ PR disaster that is!”
And the zombie target crap? Yea, that’s always impressed me. If I could deliver a huge collective pimp-slap to the people that thought that crap up, I’d do it all day long for exercise.
I spend as little time there as possible. I don't like hot weather, dirty air and water, crowds, cities, traffic, filth, vermin, fleas, ticks and skunks, especially the two-legged variety.
resent being dictated to by people who are seemingly corrupt and have not one shred of common sense.
Additional reasons why I left.
