The above ad is a spoof. I’m not sure who made it but it wasn’t the Brady Campaign. But like all good satire it almost seems real.
That’s the thing about fanatical true believers – they are capable of making arguments like the one in the ad. In fact, I’m willing to bet that some of the gun-grabbers would agree with the ad, even if they recognize it would not be effective.
Whoever did make the ad has a sick sense of humor. At the same time they managed to make a spoof that was both false and true at the same time.
I don’t know about you but if someone broke into my home the second thing I would reach for would be the phone. The first thing would be a weapon. There is an old saying:
“It’s better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.”
