Lakeland, FL (PressExposure) January 08, 2010 -- Gun violence has become an epidemic in our cities today, especially amongst our youth. Not enough attention can be drawn to the outrageously dangerous environment that surrounds our children's daily lives. With this in mind we introduce the Agent Zero "Guns Don't Kill People" T-Shirt. This shirt is designed to bring attention to national crises in a humorous light while making a positive contribution by donating a part of the proceeds to The Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence.
Ampsco Marketing presents this, the first in a series of t-shirts geared towards addressing relevant social issues while having a little fun. These AgentZero shirts are standard weight 5.6 oz., 100% cotton jersey knit t-shirts of original design, offered in black or white in two different styles.
Though the message portrayed on these shirts is a humorous one, it has been done in this manner only to bring light to a very serious problem which plagues our communities today. This is the issue of gun violence. This is a crisis that preys on our youth, and the numbers are staggering.
