The designers of these hideous and tangible examples of stupid call them "Guardian Angel" bags. (note: they "wanted to give people the impression of feeling secure") Let me be the first to explain to them: "Self-defense. Ur doin it wrong." (pop culture reference alert!)
This is also a very good example of a trend I noted in an earlier post - how some designers think that if you put a gun on a thing it suddenly becomes "Ooooh! Cool! Edgy! Avant Garde!"
So often is modern art only about shock value that it just becomes boring.
