Pretty interesting how the article was posted on the 3rd, but nobody commented until the 9th. If everyone is so outraged that these products exist, why did it take so long for people to say something?
Oh right, because people don't actually say what they think, they just hop on a bandwagon after the first person steps forward with this garbage. Lemmings.
Mic stands shaped like brass knuckles and grenades are not going to be the downfall of society. If you don't like them, don't buy them. Not every product is made for every person. I don't have any use for the Hello Kitty stuff that was mentioned in an article here, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't exist.
Where's all the outrage for the tactical flashlights that can be used as actual weapons, and other products that are actually dangerous? Let's stop selling them all and wrap ourselves in bubble wrap while freaking out over a lousy mic stand.
Or, we could all just get a life and stop complaining about things that don't matter. If there's no market for these stands, they'll cease to exist. In the meantime, people who want them will buy them, and I wager that most of them aren't running around with actual grenades.
