Nothing says class like turning a tragedy into a marketing opportunity:

Could a bedside shotgun rack have saved jennifer hudson’s family from tragic death?

Chicago, IL (MMD Newswire) October 28, 2008 — Tragedy strikes in a Chicago home leaving 3 people dead and an Oscar winner forced to identify the bodies of her family.

Jennifer Hudson’s mother and brother were gunned down in their home Friday. Could an invaluable device have saved their lives? It’s called The BackUp and it is a bedside shotgun rack.

Everyday, there are over 8,000 home invasions in America, many resulting in assault, rape, and murder. That’s according to a report by the US Department of Justice.

Whether it is someone known or a stranger entering the home, too many people in this country are paying with their lives during these home invasions. The Hudson family is just one of far too many Americans gunned down in their own home.

  1. Wow…that thing looks horribly, horribly dangerous. And only convenient if you are in bed, on that specific side of the bed.

    Unless you’re speaking of the convenience for a small child. Now the gun is on their access level, instead of in a pesky gun safe. Nice!
