Remember when Vice President Joe Biden stupidly told people to fend off intruders by firing a shotgun into the air? This is worse.
I’m not a lawyer or a gun owner but as I watched this for the first time, I couldn’t help but wonder how many laws the boy in the video was breaking.
Yehuda Remer of Truth Revolt names a few:
New Anti-Gun PSA Advocates Breaking The Law
A new PSA created by director Rejina Sincic shows her irrational fear of firearms in a disturbing new video.
The video shows a boy stealing his mother’s handgun from her dresser, places it in a backpack, brings it to school, and at the end of class gives it to his teacher saying, “Can you take this away? I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house.”
Bearing Arms writes that the video is “advocating that teens commits multiple felonies—several of which could lead to injury or death through negligent discharge of the weapon.”
What Sincic fails to point out as she advocates for this kind of behavior is the multiple felonies that the boy breaks.
“[S]uch an act would result in the boy facing numerous felony charges (exact charges depend on state laws) possibly including weapons theft, unlawful possession of a weapon by a minor, illegal concealed carry of a weapon, carrying a weapon onto school property, assault, and brandishing,” writes Bearing Arms.
Watch it below:
It’s obvious that the people behind this video have no understanding of gun laws or safety protocols.
Charles C.W. Cooke of National Review offers more analysis:
One can only imagine that the spot’s producers consider their set up to be inordinately clever. “Hey,” you can almost hear them say, “we’ll make it look as if there’s going to be a school shooting, and then he’ll hand it over to his teacher and all will be well!” In fact, it is difficult to imagine a more irresponsible storyline…
Moreover, in the course of his little ploy, the kid breaks pretty much every law on the books. He takes a gun out of his house (not only is this felony burglary, but he’s not old enough to carry a firearm in public); he then takes that gun into a school (that’s against federal and state law); and, finally, he transfers it to a teacher without a background check, thereby breaking the very rule that progressives tell us is necessary to keep us all safe from gun violence. And for what, pray? Typically, anti-gun commercials focus in on a specific safety issue: a lack of trigger locks, or background checks, or safe-storage, for example. This one seems to feature a child who is saying, “I don’t want any guns in the house at all.” This absolute approach is extreme, even for today’s class of wildly incompetent control freaks.
You really have to marvel at the ignorance on display in the ad.
