Brilliant. I love this type of straight up approach. The X-show bits showing what men really hear are similar. I'll show this to my fellow firearms enthusiasts.

I don't know how much it's going to do to solve the problem. I wish them luck. I wonder if there's discarded edits showing the child soldiers in action. That would have made a much bigger impact, though at the risk of turning people off prematurely.
