    I love it.

    It's quite clever.

    Maybe a shorter slogan at the bottom?:eek:

    I think modern-day physics textbooks look a little more...current. :D

    (I like it.)

    I deliberately used an old, generic looking book to avoid drawing too much attention to it. It's actually a 1950s Chemistry book.

    Throwing the book is for judges, not for teachers.

    Bears a slight resemblance to Max Payne.

    Maybe replace the bottom line with "http://concealedcampus.org/" Makes it look like an ad, I admit. But it directs people to a place to gain info on the idea.

    "Legalize Self Defense!"

    (you don't see a lot of advertising that asks questions - but you see a lot that tells you to do something)

    +1 to Max Payne

    I like that you used the old book...call it symbolism for Archaic laws.

    On a side note...where did the dude's trigger finger go? I'd think that would be important :p

    Very, very nice.

    For the upper right text, how about: "It doesn't take an Einstein to know lead works better."

    How about someone in a judge's robe holding a book of law in one hand and the gun in the other? It would then look like the court condones such action.

    Well said Oleg. Unfortunately you would have to beat people over the head with that book to get the point across, nevertheless, great job.

    185 pages vs 185 grains... which odds do you like better!

    Oleg,

    You do fantastic work. You've helped the entire cause immensely, and yet you're still humble. Once again, I applaud you. :)

    Max Payne is a video-game character who apparently has super powers and can slow down time a la The Matrix

    (the last part was a joke... sort of)

    Perhaps

    "185 Pages traveling at 50FPS vs 185 Grains traveling at 1040 FPS, which would stop a killer faster?"

    would work better?

    Anyway my comments on the poster, Good work as usual Oleg, you even used a pistol that fits the character quite well.

    ...

    making ads for a living i can only advise
    to simply delete the underline, as it simply
    tells the looker-at what to deduce from the visual.

    instead just a logo would be good. ...i.e "2ndAmendment.org"

    ..also a big .50 AE bullet would be way better than
    showing the gun.


    (D.A.R.E. to think - it´s not illegal yet.)
