NRA allows national convention vendor to sell “ex-girlfriend” target

Yeah, those folks at the NRA are a classy bunch… In addition to making a mannequin target that looks like President Barack Obama, Zombie Industries sells a mannequin called simply “The Ex” — a large-breasted dummy that “bleeds” when shot.
