I don't mind throwing Evidences and Truths, because these things matter to me.

I would bag an ACAB or a 1312 in a heartbeat.

Can't wait for the Rustler, probably won't sit well with the vegan contingent though.

Offended is not the right word. More accurately I am conscious of the implications of selling justice system themed discs to a population that is generally on the lower end of the income spectrum, a group of people which that system has disproportionately effected. What's next, the DD Plea Deal? Perhaps the DD Mandatory Minimum.

Disc golfers are generally on the lower end of the income spectrum? Never asked anyone on the course how much they make but folks appeared to be doing well enough. Pretty sure I haven't run across a one percenter yet.

Ah yes, the stance that nothing offends, people simply take offense.

... also IMO it's bad business model for "growing the sport". My mom would never have bought or allowed me to have discs with those names when I was a kid.
