Very nice! How about adding something about the ergonomic nature of the pistol grip? Like so?:

"Ergonomic handgrip helps to point muzzle in safe direction and minimize wrist strain"

I bow in your general direction...:cool:

You can also focus on the discriminatory nature of the bill, such as banning items that make these weapons more accessible to those with weaker statures, such as some smaller women, or the disabled. The telescoping stock and semi-auto action both fall in that category.

I will address other points in additional posters which will feature wood-stocked guns.

Looks great!
If I may be so bold, I might comment on the ergonomic benefits (like avoiding repetitive stress injuries) of the pistol grip as well.

If you like this, use it. 4000x3000 print version is at http://olegvolk.net/gallery/technology/arms/safetyban.jpg.html?g2_imageViewsIndex=1
Copy the files to your server to take the strain off mine. Re-distribute the images. Use them when educating others. I can barely find the time to make the posters, I can't reach individual views -- you have to help me in that.

Oleg,

Great work!

I think you got it all. Your poster made me think (always a bad thing) so I have a suggestion for a different theme.

A picture of a totally HR1022 compliant rifle next to a full on M4-gery with the captions “This is what Law abiding citizens will be allowed to own.” And, “This is what criminals who don’t care about the law will still obtain.” Finished with, “Gun control only controls the law abiding, not the law breakers.”

Or something similar to that.

I love the work you do.

Thanks,

I like it Oleg....to sum up...

SAME ACTION, DIFFERENT LAW

of course, if they want ALL semi's, it doesn't apply.

arthurcw,

I will make that poster also.

See Mom,

I am useful!

I can't wait to get back to group therapy and share the news.

Quick, somebody send this to the editor of Outdoor Life.
To every other worthless gun and hunting magazine too.

I just threw together a rough draft building off the poster above:

http://www.illspirit.com/randompics/hr1022.jpg

Mr. Volk, you are more than welcome to use any/all of it if you wish, since it was your idea. Source photos are from Stag Arms' website, and some random computer site, but I think they should be manipulated enough to fall under fair-use as far as copyright goes.

Oh, and OSHA does have rules about keyboard ergonomics in the workplace, right? I just tossed that in there before checking to see how it looked...

Awesome. I can update it using my own photos.

Very nice very nice. I like it using it as a wallpaper now.

Oleg, the new AR15s/M16s don't have a flash suppressor.

They have a "Compensator" to help improve accuracy.

"New" meaning, "Since 1982."

Both excellent, Gentlemen.
Keep up the good work.

Actually, the A2 muzzle device is more of a flash suppressor than a compensator, although by having the bottom closed, it does help to reduce muzzle climb.

Most importantly for this thread, it's classed as a flash suppressor, not a muzzle brake, by ATFE.

I like it, I like it a lot!

Nice use of "defense rifle" in the footnote too.

Well, ATF can call it a flash suppressor. DoD calls it a compensator.:) Use whichever sounds less threatening. I vote compensator, for accuracy.

Went looking for this earlier tonight to show to a friend, and am bumping it for those who haven't seen it yet.

Spread it far and wide, folks!!
