Evil clowns... yes.

It seems that one thing some people are over looking is that these images are not just of people holding guns, they're of people pointing guns at the potential trainee.
I don't think anyone is overlooking that. The point of the targets is clear from the name the company gives them: No More Hesitation targets. The purpose is to train police not to hesitate to shoot when anyone is pointing a gun at them.

The company now has a statement on their home page that includes the following:
We apologize for the offensive nature of our "No More Hesitation" products. These products have been taken offline due to the opinions expressed by so many, including members of the law enforcement community.

This product line was originally requested and designed by the law enforcement community to train police officers for unusually complex situations where split-second decisions could lead to unnecessary loss of life.
However, there's still a pregnant woman target available. She's also pointing a gun at the viewer, but... she looks sorta whacked.
