Couple of AWARENESS images I was working on....

I was working on images last night, then came across this today, from GunsSaveLives:


Here's the PDF: http://gunssavelives.net/wp-content/...uide-PDF-1.pdf

Read the excerpts below, which basically outline the fact they're using emotion to their advantage.

PAGE 44: The truth is, the most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak.

PAGE 44: The debate over gun violence in America is periodically punctuated by high-profile gun violence incidents, including Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, the Trayvon Martin killing, Aurora, and Oak Creek. When an incident such as these attracts sustained media attention, it creates a unique climate for our communications efforts.

PAGE 45: It’s appropriate to open with an expression of concern for the victims and their families.

PAGE 47: That means we should seek out opportunities to engage these newly accessible audiences – through mainstream media appearances, online outreach, and other channels. But, it also means we have to be alert to the differences in talking to our established base and to the “uninitiated.

The images I was working on just yesterday:

Sorry man but those are visually atrocious, void of real information, confusing, and overall ineffective at what you are trying to accomplish.

I was expecting something geared towards gun awareness in the context of either safety, mechanics or operation. I feel dumber having viewed those images and hope this never sees the light of day because it does a disservice to proponents of gun ownership.
