Watch the Worst Gun Control PSA Ever Made

Watch the Worst Gun Control PSA Ever Made

New ad encourages children to break the law.

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.

What were the makers thinking?

I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I first watched this video…. it was so horrendously wrong that I began to think someone was trolling the gun control crowd until I saw the credits.

    In progressive/liberal/Democrat-land, it’s the intent and the content of your heart that matters–not what you do in real world situations. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if a school administrator was approached by the propaganda minister (sorry, Rejina Sincic…but I repeat myself) to use real facilities for ‘authenticity’.

    Just another anti-American propaganda piece bound to win kudos from the anti-American media like CBSMSNBCCNNABCTimes…

The prog zeal to teach children to rat out their parents is frightening.

That being said, the gun should be in a safe.

    Bollocks! The poor, addled, dickless boi who doesn’t feel safe with an inanimate object under the same roof should be in a safe.

    A nice, safe DE-programming program. Where they teach you not to be afraid of tools.

      Lina Inverse in reply to Ragspierre. | December 23, 2014 at 10:23 am

      Indeed, and there are way too many “kids” who’ve successfully defended themselves and/or others to make a blanket rule like that. And it’s not quite true that:

      It’s obvious that the people behind this video have no understanding of gun laws or safety protocols.

      As should be true for any child that age, per the image you see without playing the video, he’s been sufficiently trained in gun safety to observe Rule 3, keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot.

      More than anything else that caught my eye, since safe gun handling by our betters is so seldom seen, they don’t accept the principle that you should “gun proof” your kids instead of trying in Victorian style to keep guns away from them.

      platypus in reply to Ragspierre. | December 23, 2014 at 12:33 pm

      Wouldn’t it be easier for progs to just put their kids (the ones they didn’t kill) in giant condoms? They’d be safe from everything but more importantly we would be safe from THEM.

      These idiots are forcing people to go Galt, just to preserve their brain function.

      If it was my kid and he was old enough then I’d program his fingerprint into the pistol safe so he could get the gun if needed.

      I’d worry about neighbor kids who wander into the house when I’m not home, or that time when the kids procure a twelve pack of beer when I’m not home and the inhibitions are lowered, etc.

      Personally, I keep all my firearms locked with two bio-metric pistol safes on opposite ends of the house.

      But hey, sling yours the way you want to, just don’t point ’em at me, please.

    We didn’t have a gun safe when I was growing up. What I had was a father that made it crystal clear than firearms weren’t toys and that I was not to touch them without his permission.

    Somehow, that was enough for us and for all the other families in the neighborhood that also had firearms.

      DaveGinOly in reply to Sanddog. | December 23, 2014 at 4:50 pm

      There was a time when guns could be ordered by mail and they were regularly carried to school by young boys who hunted for rabbit and squirrel on their way home. These children not only didn’t feel threatened by the presence of a gun in the home, they felt empowered by it to contribute to the dinner table. They could also be relied upon to not shoot up the school just because their noses got out of joint about something. What has changed? Access to guns? Well, yes. Access to guns is more difficult today! What has changed is parenting and the children that result from the parenting. The guns are harder to access and there are more laws and regulations governing their possession and carry – and these laws and regulations have proven to be completely useless and it’s no surprise why – they don’t address the problem.

That looks like a real gun in a real school. Didn’t the producers break the law. It seems like the law banning firearms on school property applies before, during and after school hours.

Also, I want to send my kids to that school. They have classrooms with only nine students.

Our children deserve a world of liberty and freedom as the founders envisioned, and a federal government with limited powers as the founders envisioned.

Everyone go RIGHT NOW and report the video for promoting felonies. Make sure to mention that the video may fool a child into going to prison for 40 years.

The NRA has the Eddie Eagle GunSafe program that comes to schools and teaches firearm safety.
———
If you see a gun:
STOP!
Don’t Touch.
Leave the Area.
Tell an Adult.
———
This ad violates every single aspect of gun safety.

When did school teachers become the arbiters of gun control? Wouldn’t it be more logical to have the kid take the gun to the local police? That way, if the kid’s parents don’t own the gun legally, the police could arrest the kid’s parents, and remove a bad influence from the kid’s life.

And the world would be a little more safe for liberals.

    Voyager in reply to rinardman. | December 23, 2014 at 1:52 pm

    THe idea is probably that the teachers are the replacement parents for the kid, and distributors of moral authority. The police has laws and protocol they are supposed to follow, whereas teachers are free to dispense dogma as they see fit.

    It puts a snugly face on indoctrination.

2nd Ammendment Mother | December 23, 2014 at 11:03 am

Just to clarify a very unclear declaration…..

“he’s not old enough to carry a firearm in public”

There are minimum ages for purchase and ownership. There is not a minimum age for carrying or using of a firearm in public or private. There are a lot of variations on the conditions for use from State to State. One example, in Texas, our youth shooters must have a short 1 paragraph affidavit in their possession for parental permission to compete with pistols but not for other types of firearms.

Across the United States we have hundreds of thousands of youth who are active hunters and competitors across a variety of shooting sports disciplines with all categories of firearms.

    2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to 2nd Ammendment Mother. | December 23, 2014 at 11:06 am

    My apologies – It just occurred to me that Cooke could have been referring to Conceal Carry Laws where he would be correct. I was reading it as a blanket statement for all activities involving firearms usage.

      Not just concealed carry, but also ownership and/or possession of a handgun. The laws vary, state by state, but in a number of them, minors cannot even handle handguns absent a parent, guardian, etc. being present. For example see: Can a Minor Possess a Gun?

        2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to Bruce Hayden. | December 23, 2014 at 1:45 pm

        I was thinking that the statement needed a qualifier such as “terms and conditions vary from state to state”. His phrasing came across as an over generalization. All pistols are firearms, not all firearms are pistols – an equal number are rifles, shotguns, or bows – and the idea that there is an “all out ban” on handling any firearm before a specific age would be false.

        Conditions for ownership and use for various categories of firearms do exist from state to state. So, while my Texas teen must have an affidavit to use his pistol at the range, he is free to safely transport and use his rifle or shotgun pretty much anywhere that is not posted as prohibited (school, post office and such). He can purchase any bow or PCP rifles/pistols at anytime in his own name; however he must wait until he’s 18 to purchase a muzzleload, .22 or above rifle or shotgun until he’s 18 and 21 for a pistol.

        And all that being said…. the prudent parent educates their kids on when and where is appropriate and legal.

          2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to 2nd Ammendment Mother. | December 23, 2014 at 1:48 pm

          And then my son reminded me that there are some variations on store policies regarding PCP firearms….. he recalls that while he was allowed to purchase one of his competition rifles, that I was required to be present during the purchase.

The creator of this video is clearly insane. She should be banned from ever owning a video camera.

“I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house. There’s an underage teen there who might find it and do something stupid with it. Oh wait that’s me. Never mind.”

Around two million [wholly innocent] human lives are aborted/murdered annually in planned parenthood rituals through lethal injection, decapitation, and dismemberment. That is more lives lost than in all wars, mass murders, and ISIS terrorism combined. Around ten thousand human lives are lost to gun violence. Most involved government agents, criminals, and suicides. The juxtaposition reveals an ulterior motive of gun control advocates and activists. Their interest is not human lives.

A followup commercial by the NRA could be:

Parent discovers gun is missing. Kid confesses. Parent says “You don’t feel safe in my house with a gun? Let’s see how safe you feel outside the house without a gun” …

    Gremlin1974 in reply to MrE. | December 23, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    I wonder if someone could do a reply to this video, with a video of the same kid being visited in jail by his mother, lol.

The problem is not guns. It is not scalpels nor vacuums nor any other dual-use item. Gun control is a red herring. The issue is progressive morality and an open borders policy that ignores gun crossings and their motivation (e.g. “Dream Act”, restricted land use) to emigrate in mass.

It strikes me, any kid that does this is, provided nothing else happens, is going to find themselves aggressively pursued by CPS, and will likely end up removed from their parents’ care, and put into the foster care system.

I wonder if this could be opposed as creating a hostile atmosphere against the exercising of basic rights? This has “junior secret police rubber truncheon” written all over it.

    Youth! Youth!
    We are the future soldiers.
    Youth! Youth!
    Support the upcoming acts.
    Yes, precipitated by our fists
    Anyone who opposes us
    Youth! Youth!
    We are the future soldiers.
    Youth! Youth!
    Support the upcoming acts.
    Leaders, we are yours,
    We comrades, you!

    or in the original German:

    Jugend! Jugend!
    Wir sind der Zukunft Soldaten.
    Jugend! Jugend!
    Träger der kommenden Taten.
    Ja, durch unsre Fäuste fällt
    Wer sich uns entgegenstellt
    Jugend! Jugend!
    Wir sind der Zukunft Soldaten.
    Jugend! Jugend!
    Träger der kommenden Taten.
    Führer, wir gehören dir,
    Wir Kameraden, dir!

      It’s amazing how similar such a song is to something like…
      Hmmm…hmmm…hmmm…Barack Hussein Obama…

      One could imagine simply replacing Barrack Hussein Obama, with Kim Jung Un, or any other tin pot dictator of choice.

With kids getting hammered for drawing a gun, munching a Pop Tart into a Dali art form of a “gun”, pointing a pencil at someone, there was a manic pause in the two remaining neurons in this person advocating taking a gun to school. The kid gets hammered, the parents are thrown into the court system and who wins? The smirking gun control crowd. By the way… years ago in NYC kids regularly carried guns to school, to shoot in team sports. Guns cause crime as much as condoms cause rape. Maybe out intrepid producer should pick up the “in” rape banner and ban contraceptives to stop crime on campus.

A kid that age raised by a parent with a gun, would almost certainly be trained to handle the gun on his own, in an emergency.

One thing that could get the kid in trouble would be him listening to this meddlesome commercial.

Haven’t we had enough of vulnerable youth being led astray, by leftists turning kids against sound traditions of their parents?

Watch the Worst Gun Control PSA Ever Made

No.

Gracias, pero no gracias.

This makes the fourth time I’ve avoided it. Why would I irritate myself that way? Comments are so much better. Thank you, commenters. You’re a treasure.

Special thanks were given to the North Oakland Community Charter School. I presume that’s where the school scenes were shot.
http://www.noccs.org/
The school is located in Oakland, CA. Someone in that jurisdiction should contact the Oakland PD, draw their attention to this video, and demand that an investigation be conducted. At a minimum, Ari Atken (“the Kid”) and Karen Caronna (“the Teacher”) should be investigated for their involvement in bringing a weapon into the school. They may also want to investigate the other members of the production crew (conspirators) and any in administration who may have encouraged/permitted multiple breaches of the laws pertaining to firearms and other weapons in school. (They may have thought themselves safe by using a non-firearm. But it does appear to be an actual pellet or BB gun, and is probably still a prohibited weapon.)

Script for part 2 of this video.

The teacher, who is suffering from PTSD after many years of incorrigible students passed on to her by incompetent teachers and lazy parents and the recent trauma of watching a toddler bite the corner off a pop-tart and brandishing it at her threateningly,takes the gun and shoots an entire classroom before the police put her down. The teacher’s family regrets the fact that they were unable to force her in to counseling because it would violate her rights. The principal stated that he could not place her on leave because the Union rules wouldn’t allow it. When the police asked the boy why he brought the gun to school he answered, “I watched the PSA made by Rejina Sincic.”

I am a School Nurse, who also happens to be a Concealed Carry Permit holder, who does carry EXCEPT while on school property or outing and I can tell you that this is the most negligent and irresponsible collection of crap that I have seen in a long time. I find it interesting that they don’t show the kid being arrested for bringing a weapon on campus, and if it was my kid also charges for stealing the gun.

Also, how did the actions of the kid in this video make anyone safer? The kid had is finger on the trigger, he didn’t safe and clear the gun, he didn’t transport the gun properly, and basically broke ever rule of gun safety.

The people behind this video are clinically psychotic and should seek help, or possible be involuntarily committed.

I hope that when a kid ends up arrested because he brought a gun to school “because he/she “didn’t feel safe” that they point out this video as why they did it. Then the family can sue these folks into abject poverty.

I think the assumption is that the kid will be treated like David Gregory was because bringing the gun to school was done for the right i.e. leftist reasons.

    Voyager in reply to randian. | December 24, 2014 at 3:05 pm

    He won’t. What will happen is it will put his family on the radar of CPS, who will make their lives living hell from then on.

    David Gregory is a celebrity. Any kid who emulates this will just be another nobody caught in the gears of bureaucracy.

Someone needs to film a parody of this thing where the kid keeps bringing in “dangerous” inanimate objects from home – a blender, a power drill, a chainsaw, toenail scissors, a curling iron – and saying, “Here, teacher, take this too!”

This whole thing smacks of Disney thinking: the young people have to be the decision makers for the household because they “follow their hearts” and their stodgy elders “need to learn to change their hateful ways.” (See how easy it is to write a Disney cartoon script?)

To void all the harsh comments on You Tube this crazy woman Rejina Sincic took down her original url and reposted here with comments disabled:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QIa4NkQXm8Y

My first comment on her original posting: Wow, this crazy b!tc# also made a film about people asking themselves “hey, why not go kill somebody today?” and then they do it, just for the fun of it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Oe7lSBmQdk

Oh, but I’m sure its “anti violence.” “Hey, let’s get people to think about who it would be fun to kill. Wouldn’t that be a good comment on how bad violence is? The worse it is the worse it is right? So we want it to be as worse as possible, so we can be really really against it!”

You got one sick little mind girl.

Second comment: This was apparently made with the help of “North Oakland Charter School,” which is presumably showing it to their students. I see major criminal liability for Miss Sincic if one of these indoctrinated kids actually does this.

In CA having a loaded gun in public without a CCW permit (never mind in a school) is a VERY serious crime, liable to result in significant jail time, and a teenager who takes a loaded gun to school would very likely be charged as an adult. These idiots can’t claim never to have heard of the present “zero tolerance” laws and policies. They are the authors of those laws and policies.

So what the HELL is this idiot woman doing? She could be found guilty of suborning or inciting felonious behavior from a minor. They all could, and should, if any child actually does what they are advocating.

‘Pistol boy.”

How come they didn’t show him in his pajamas, stirring a cup of hot chocolate with a 9mm, and the caption: “”Wear pajamas. Drink hot chocolate. Talk about getting gun control.”
