Drama, drama, drama!
Precision Syndicate, LLC, a Texas-based gun company, is in REALLY hot water after it made a customized Glock that closely resembles the infamous Nintendo video game ‘Zapper’ gun used on classic games like Duck Hunt!
The controversy initially broke last week when the company posted a few pics to Facebook bragging (below) about how they had created a (real) gun that looked a LOT like the fake gun toy aimed at kids:
Uh… what?! Why?! Who signed off on that?!
Predictably — nearly 150,00 shares later (!) — more than 8,000 comments of controversy flooded in to the company’s Facebook page, many pointing out that, hey, maybe making guns look like toys isn’t such a good idea!
After five days of that, the company responded on Sunday evening, posting a new update (below):
“In light of the ‘Nintendo Glock’ drama, we feel that the media and our fans need to know that this firearm will not be mass produced nor will it ever be. This is a one off custom build for a friend of ours. Do to the thousands of emails and messages we have received in the past 2 days we have been unable to contact everyone in a timely manner, please be patient we will get to you as soon as possible. Thank you all for your support! Oh, and please.. keep your guns locked up and away from children, it’s common sense.”
Uh… Know what else is common sense?
Let’s all say it together now… NOT MAKING GUNS LOOK LIKE HARMLESS TOYS!!
How did nobody at Precision Syndicate realize this?
