Law enforcement agencies "requested" shooting targets of pregnant women from an organization that also provides "no hesitation," or "NMH" targets to the Department of Homeland Security depicting "children, elderly gun owners and mothers in playground."
In a shocking call to the company as reported by Paul Joseph Watson of InfoWars, Blaine Cooper asked a representative whether she was concerned about selling images of pregnant women as targets. She noted that "unfortunately our world is made up of people, pregnant or otherwise, that are gun owners not for the right reasons," adding that the targets were used to "train police officers". The representative seemed a bit taken by surprise over the scrutiny of the "no hesitation" target and explained that the pregnant woman target was "requested...for training."
Listen to the conversation here:
Mike Riggs of Reason reports that the "marketing team" at the company, Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. sent a statement that said in part, "The goal of NMH is to break that stereotype on the range, regardless of how slim the chances are of encountering a real life scenario that involves a child, pregnant woman, etc. If that initial hesitation time can be cut down due to range experience, the officer and community are better served." Riggs points out that the company "has landed $5.5 million worth of contracts with the federal government." In light of the scrutiny, the organization posted on Facebook "inviting commentary and criticism."
One certainly cannot fault the company for providing the targets; however, it is a bit concerning that the police would "request" photos of pregnant women for their shooting practice.
