• SO DUMB: New PSA Mocks Pro-Gun States

    A new public service announcement aimed at poking fun at pro-gun states is beginning to make its rounds on the internet.

    The PSA was released Thursday on website “Funny or Die,” and was sponsored by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a DC-based nonprofit that lobbies tougher gun laws throughout the country.

    The ad features a male and female duo that portray gun-toting criminals that mock states like Arizona for having casual gun-laws, but the faux criminals “boo” states like California for having tougher laws that prevent them from doing their criminal activity.

    The actress says, “Up till now it’s been difficult for criminals like us to know which states have loose gun laws,” then asks, “How would a criminal like me know which states permit me to carry loaded guns in their amusement parks, golf courses, or beaches?”

    Her male counterpart says, “I have some violent friends. We all wear leather jackets and scream at women. And we want to find out which states we can buy and sell guns easily.”

    They eventually direct you to visit Crimadvisor.com, which is a Brady Center site that rates the states by what they call the “Top 10 traffickers.”

    The ad makes me think that another major gun-law push is going to be hitting the country in the near future, but where the ad falls short is that they neglect to discuss the fact that criminals obviously don’t follow laws and thus tougher laws would only affect law-abiding citizens; moreover, it conveniently forgets to mention that Chicago has some of the toughest gun-laws in the country, but also has one of the highest murder rates in the country.

    As Wayne LaPierre from the NRA said, “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.”
