This story was featured on our local news last night, and was reprised this morning.

At the Hunters Extravaganza at Will Rogers Coliseum, people are window shopping. And when they reach Booth 1229, they start furniture shopping.
"No one knows it's there -- not your cleaning crew, not your guests," he said.
The concealed safe in the Couchbunker provides space to hide up to 40 rifles and ammunition. The bulletproof cushions are optional.

"Hopefully you never need the panels," Adrain explained, adding, "but we never know the situation we're going to be in. If there's a home invasion, you can take one of the cushions, and hand it to one of your children or your spouse to protect them. We make them with arm straps, so you can hold the cushion with one hand and fire with the other hand."

It mentions the potential to protect in the event of a home invasion. How many are at risk of a home invasion? And if one worried about such an event, why might one need to stockpile up to 40 rifles to protect against it? And who has time to rip off the sofa cushions and unlock the gun safe and distribute the guns and provide the "wimmen and childern" with bullet proof cushions. What are the home invaders doing while all this is happening? Unless the invaders are imagined government troops deploying outside the home in preparation of an invasion.

The segment immediately following that one was about bulletproof backpacks for children.

It was all reported as quite matter-of-fact. No hint that this might be a bit .... nuts.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
