Derek the Dodo

Derek the Dodo is a fictional dodo used by Ammu-Nation for advertising in the early 1980s. Derek is used to entice children into using guns at Saturday Safety Fun and to shift blame to 'anti-gun zealots'. A likely reason for using the dodo as a mascot is that the bird is extinct, which pokes fun at firearms and hunting.
