I don't really know how I should take this one...should I laugh or get angry...you decide for yourself.

Whichever way you choose to go, this is the sort of thing that the Antis can make good use of against firearms owners.

Hollow Point Bullet Recoil

For those that don’t know, The Onion news network is a satirical news agency !!!

This type of poke fun at can be and is funny, but is definitely not good for public relations.

I thought it was pretty tasteless and not the least bit funny.

i think this crap is totally uncalled for.we are having hard enough time keeping our second ammendment rights without some stupid SOB advertising shooying to kill like it's a everyday passion of all gun owners. my guns are used for sport shooting,ker-plinking and hunting.don't get me wrong,i would protect my family but i do not think this kind of advertisement is right. this is the most uncalled thing i've ever seen a company take pride in tryiong to fix. very upset right now

The Onion likes to joke about the real media.

This is just some "fun" at the whole "killer bullets" thing talked about in real media. As the Media loves to report when "Hollow Point" ammunition is used as being so much more of a "killer" then what ever the media thinks is "normal" ammunition. Kind of like the whole "Cop killer ammo" phrase the media loved to use in the 90's.

With titles like this the Onion can't be taken seriously:

Ford Reintroduces Model T Line That Made It Great

DEARBORN, MI—"We've been so concerned with adding frills like GPS and exhaust pipes that we forgot what really matters: open-air bench seating," CEO Alan Mulally said.

Area Man Thinks He Was Fired Because Of Recession

CHICAGO—Though there were more than a dozen just causes—including tardiness, gross incompetence, and poor hygiene—to terminate Louis Palmer from his position as an accountant at Brillstein & Altman CPA, PC, the 29-year-old told reporters Monday that he believes he was fired due to economic conditions beyond anyone's control. "Nobody's safe from this recession, man," said Palmer, who might have noticed that his employer actually posted a 12 percent growth in 2008 had he not so frequently been asleep at his desk.

Quote::
Plan To Start Little Stationery Store Too Sad For Bank To Deny Loan

KANSAS CITY, MO—Loan officers at the First National Bank of Kansas City defended their decision to lend local man Tim Creamsby $650,000 to open a small stationery store Monday, explaining that, while the business's long-term prospects were poor, the idea was "simply too pathetic and heartbreaking" not to sign off on.

"In order to qualify for a loan of that size, an applicant normally must demonstrate significant financial holdings, have an impeccable credit score, and fill out a number of contracts," First National loan officer Robert Lewiston said. "But when I met Mr. Creamsby and listened to his pitiful story about how he'd worked all his life at an office-chair factory to save up for his dream—his dream to have a little shop where people could buy thank-you notes and maybe pick up some fountain-pen ink every now and then—well, I blurted out the first number that came to mind just to make him stop."

Yea I follow Onion articles alot as well, and most of their stuff while seeming to parody one thing, really pokes fun somewhere else. In this case I also thought it was more making fun of the hysteria of ammo than the ammo itself.

Gidday Mike...the transcript above is exactly as I received it. Changing the word RECOIL to RECALL might well alter the whole "message" they are sending mate.

Cheers, Vince

What I am unsure of are folks who are not well versed in firearms, and bulllets might interpret it.

I have mixed emotions, but generally found it offensive.

I am with youl lesterg! If this was just among gun people I could see the humor in it. In the general public it is a big problem as too many anitis will misinterpret.

Stop and think for one moment someone trying to use footage from The Onion News Network to further their agenda!!! Regardless of the subject matter that has been chosen.

Taking a skit from Saturday Night Live and using Mr. Bill as your spokes person would probably net the same results.

I don’t think there’s a person here that finds anything funny about any attempt to destroy our sport, hobby, life style or most importantly our 2nd amendment rights.
That is not what this is about!!!
