Firearm Fascination

Consumers embrace the edgy weaponry aesthetic

Implications - Modern consumers are a lot more difficult to shock than they were in recent years. Though the topic of weaponry will always be a sensitive one, the dangerous appeal of the firearm aesthetic is undeniable. This is especially prominent with today's youth. Desensitized to violent imagery and comfortable with aggression, today's young consumer is simply seeking a way to communicate their tough personality.
