The first one exemplifies the saying "Sex sells". Featured heavily in advertisements for a very long time. As for the second one, they're pulling
on the parent's heartstrings. If the child looks safe and secure in bed with the gun parents will see it and think their purchase will help protect
their children from possible gun hazards. It's all psychological.
Personally, I'm not offended by many of these. However, I can see how some people would think they're sexist or promoting gun violence. But not this
poster. I like them for their retro appeal. Like the original Hotpoint commercials or mint issues of Crime Does Not Pay.
