DHS Supplier Provides Shooting Targets of American Gun Owners

Company produces cardboard cut-outs of “non-traditional threats”: Pregnant women, elderly & children

A provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.


Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is a 21-year designer and full service provider of training targets for the DHS, the Justice Department and thousands of law enforcement agencies throughout the country.

The company’s website offers a line of “No More Hesitation” targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” The targets are, “meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusual targets for the first time.”

The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”

Why are top training target suppliers for the government supplying the likes of the DHS with “non-traditional threat” targets of children, pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds, and elderly American gun owners unless there is a demand for such items?

This is particularly alarming given the fact that the Department of Homeland Security has purchased roughly 2 billion rounds of ammunition over the course of the last year, enough to wage a near 30 year war.

In comparison, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month.

The DHS also purchased no less than 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles last September, labeling them “Personal Defense Weapons.”

The fact that targets of armed pregnant women, children, mothers in playgrounds, and American gun owners in general are being represented as “non traditional threats” “for the first time” is deeply concerning given the admitted preparations for civil unrest undertaken by Homeland Security as well as other federal agencies.

A leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” also outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

This also dovetails with the continuing characterization of Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority,” and “reverent of individual liberty” as “extreme right-wing” terrorists by DHS-funded studies.

The US military trained last year to take on another “unusual target” – zombies – which some fear is just a ruse to get troops used to engaging crowds of people with deadly force. As Alex Jones documented in his film Police State 2000, numerous “urban warfare” training drills stretching back well over a decade have revolved around incarcerating and battling the American people on domestic soil.

See the other “non-traditional threats” that are being provided in the form of shooting targets to the DHS and thousands of law enforcement agencies below.

  • No more hesitation, Obama is a communist and America hater. All those targets are hype and are used as propaganda to cause fear. If you're not afraid to die protecting your God given rights you have nothing to fear. I honestly believe they are more afraid of the American people than they are of the terrorist. The reason, the liberal socialist democrat party are terrorist. They are funding and arming terrorist. It makes all the sense in the world they would consider law-abiding American citizens their enemies. They are so hungry for the patriotic American citizens to fire the first shot. We must avoid that all cost, clean up the voting procedures, and vote the communist out of office, this is still America and we can still do this without any blood shed.

  • Big government proponents win again.  Without open discussion of these topics we can not make good decisions.  Thank you!

  • @Michelle Hartly. I emailed my senator and received a call from one of his reps and received a weak explanation the ammo being bought was over a course of ten years, and multiple agencies, including local law enforcement would be using it and the facilities countrywide for training. I countered with the fact that training I understand but lethal ammo is not necessary for training, and they don't have enough LE to use up 2 billion rounds from DHS and all the other ammo from all the other offices buying. Regular ball ammo was fine for target practice and much cheaper which leads me to believe there's more to this than just practice. All I got was an "I understand." AND this was from one of the most conservative offices in Washington supposedly.

  • dhs is preparing its people for weapon confiscation accross our country. these are the pictures of the suspected people who will resist. so dhs peeps are being trained to shoot first, ask questons later (if ever). is this o's new armed forces ?

    it is wrong and i don't care who started this program, that it is happening is all that matters.

  • @William A. Warren: Bush started it I believe, but Obama and Napolitano have bastardized it into a Gestapo like organization, going against our own citizens rather than those like illegals or any anti-American group of which they are a part.

  • Divide and conquer.

  • RE "...quadriplegic in a wheel chair."

    I suspect there would have been a target like that if they'd been smart enough to think of it.

    But, I imagine the real reason is that they, the left, the government, etc. do not consider the disabled as even human.

    Just try, if you're any-kind of disabled finding work.  When was the last time you saw a disabled person of any age in any government office, any accounting corp., any law office, or on tv (except when they want to sell you a wheel chair) just doesn't happen--the disabled haven't fallen through the cracks, they were pushed--they've been given non-human status.

  • DHS is made of perverts and wannabees. They get things done by promising sexual favors.

  • Questions? Who are the organizers and creators of DHS? Are they not the treasonous enemies? When did defending the Constitution and Bill of Rights, professing a belief in God, defending the life in the womb, and being patriotic to liberty and freedom , make one a terrorist? Is this not America? Then who is the true terrorist? What are the names of those who have implemented these policies? They are the enemies, terrorists, and treasonous traitors. Who are they?

  • The DHS will soon find out that we live targets SHOOT BACk!
