Very well done, I like this one. The only really tiny detail I could nitpick would be to have an A2 or an M4 with with some nasty looking accessories to provide more contrast between the "assault weapon" and the "meager pistol."

I like those, do you make them your self?

I made them earlier today. The model is Nicki Fellenzer (http://libertyzone.blogspot.com) whose writings you will find at KABA (http://www.keepandbeararms.com/nicki).

Have the one on the left lose the goggles and ear muffs. She's not in a range environment so it just looks silly.

Awesome job. keep them going

Here's my take at it. First of all, the font is slightly off between the two sentences. It's slightly distracting.

Secondly, I feel like the second statement should say: "Why won't some states trust her with a pistol for protecting her family from enemies at home?"

That would emphasize the foreign and domestic aspect, further bringing out the hypocrisy in the legal system.

The word "states" isn't a proper noun.

Seeing someone in ACUs with orange eyepro and big over the ear muffs looks very odd. I don't think I've ever been at the qual range or training and seen another soldier with that kind of protective equipment. It kinda detracts from the realism in the photo. Oleg, if you plan to do more poster with soldier/Marines/etc in them, I would use some form of Oakleys and in-the-ear plugs. Those are used by the vast majority of military folk.

I agree with taurusower, the protective gear in uniform makes the image look all wrong.

Oh, bite me... Not every soldier is a rawboned razor-sharp troopie... You've got doctors, nurses, all sorts of folks, most of whom train for THEIR JOBS, and not to run around wearing a tree suit.

FWIW, most of the scrawny little "hardbodies" I've known would lose (as in "fail mightily") in a fitness contest with an average nurse or EMT female. Hollywood ain't real life.

Delete the glasses/muffs, find someone with a 'tricked out' M4.

Also 'her' and 'herself' are too redundant. Delete the 'herself.

"Why won't some states trust her with a pistol for protection against criminals?" etc.

Outstanding! Great pictures!

Thank you.

Indeed, her M16A1 looks like a throwback to the '70s era.

Why is it I prefer the picture of her with the rifle?

bogie

Guys, you are thinking WAY too much about the M16... It looks PERFECT for a national guard troopie, and hanging half the impedimentia from Bubba's Tactical Emporium just makes stuff look like it came outta the Nerf catalog...

You can see Oleg's reflection in the goggles. In the small version it's no big deal, but full size it's pretty obvious.

Another vote for losing them

http://www.a-human-right.com/ is one of Olegs sites i believe.

the archives of alot of his work is here http://www.olegvolk.net/ some times it takes some digging to find the one you want

Brevity is the soul of wit. The copy is far too long. How about:

"We trust her to protect our country."

"Why not trust her to protect her family?"

I will revise the image a bit, retouching the reflection.

Oleg, if you plan to do more poster with soldier/Marines/etc in them, I would use some form of Oakleys and in-the-ear plugs. Those are used by the vast majority of military folk.

She can't use plugs. And I have no Wileys on hand. Should have used an M4, I agree.

Picard

I agree with Blackbeard. His quotes seem spot on. Short and to the point.

DoubleTapDrew

Should have used an M4, I agree.
Although at the time the DC ban was passed A1s were probably what was most common (not digital camo though).
Could probably do without the eye/ear protection unless they are going to be used in both pictures.

Beautiful.

I agree with AlaskaErik that the googles and ear muffs can go.

bogie

Oleg, remember who the audience is - not gunnies - An AR-15/M16A2 type rifle says "military" to them. An M4 with a buncha stuff hanging off may say "toy" to more than a few folks.

And they aren't going to wonder why a soldier might not be wearing ear/eye protection - IMHO, that detracts from the overall message.

I love Blackbeard's brevity suggestion and agree about the M4.

+1, their selective use tends to emphasize the vulnerability of the message.

Wonderful!

And especially apt with the DC situation as they try to weasel out of the Heller decision.

How about an "armed city bus" compared to an "unarmed city bus" with the same photo, or maybe a few thugs sitting with their hands folded , looking up front in the first photo.
