Breaking: Crickett recalls kids’ rifles over safety concerns

by Lalo Alcaraz on May 8, 2013 in El Now, Pocho Ñews Service

(PNS reporting from PENNSYLVANIA) Crickett Firearms has recalled My First Rifle over safety concerns about the toxic paint used to coat the firearms.

“Our kids’ safety is utmost, so we are pulling some of our children’s weapons, especially the brightly-colored Hello Kitty model,” says Crickett spokesperson Wes Smithson. 

Crickett’s recall statement urges caution when handling the rifles in question. “Take great care not to scratch the surface of the paint,” it reads,”as it might release the hazardous toxins onto the skin, and this could be dangerous to your child’s health.”

The gun manufacturer has promised to exchange the unsafe products in question with safe children’s rifles that are coated with a safe non-toxic varnish, or can strip and re-coat the rifle and return it to the customer. Crickett has promised that the new re-finished rifles will be safe enough to “store in your toddler’s room.”

Crickett is a subsidiary of Milton, PA’s Keystone Sporting Arms LLC.

Pocho Ñews Service PNS is a wholly-fictitious subsidiary of Pochismo, Inc., a California corporation, who is a person according to the Supreme Court.  Don’t ask us, we just work here.

This will fit right in with the new Hello Kitty Crack pipe now available at Walmart.

Wes Smithson, (crickett spokesperson) i think not. lets get real people, there is no hello kitty crickett rifle on the market there never was and never will be, there is no paint on these rifles at all so how can they be toxic?? i feel sorry for the author of this poorly put together mess of an article. dont you have anything better to do, you might want to put down the pipe and take up knitting. you might know something about that.

No, tighty im not dead yet, just get tired of people that have nothing better to do than dream up stuff to bash others with, there is no wes smithson that works or has ever worked for crickett and they do not paint any of their stocks. i cant beleive that people are allowed to post things on a blog that are so far from the truth that it is insane. takes all kinds i guess. i should start a blog about lalo alcaraz, i could say he is a crossdresser and likes little boys. might be true who knows. dosent look like to me he has anything better to do..
