  1. Well, it’s obvious to me that these shells, if used for home defense, simply MUST be loaded with Bellis perennis…. daisy seeds, of course.

    • I would have suggested apricot, peach, or avocado seeds.

      But you have a point about your suggestion being far more in character.

  2. I dunno…maybe #PajamaBoy can use these to fire thweet theedth of Obamacare love!

  3. The idea isn’t from a small business but from an advertising/marketing agency, Studio Total, which also does activism. from wiki “stirred up controversy in 2010, when Swedish feminist Gudrun Schyman burned 100,000 kronor (approximately $14,000) in a protest against unequal pay…2012, Studio Total arranged an airdrop of teddy bears endorsing freedom of speech over Belarus.”

    I suspect it is basically an ad to attempt to reinforce the “only for killing” meme.

  6. But think of the great fun that could be had re-vegetating road cuts and burn areas with a Cessna and an FA. We have rather a lot of burn areas in Colorado just now.

    • That sounds horribly inefficient, unlikely to succeed, and phenomenally expensive. Also fun. Where do I sign up?

    Animals too.
