Strategies To Disarm

Under the guise of preventing gun violence:

Neighborhood Gun Dealers:

OMG FFLs being ran out of houses!  People will surely die.

Concealed carry, u so crazy:

Dude is angry.

Mothers of gun victims:

A handgun killed the white lady’s son!  I sure hope that handgun is dead or in jail… we need to keep killer handguns off the streets.

Gun Violence Is Out Of Control:

Handguns kill more kids than car crashes in CA?  Data please.  Also, there they go again blaming handguns.

Too, too many guns:

Yea let’s demonize handguns some more.

School Shooting:

That’s the kind of message that actually makes sense.  Well 1 in 6 isn’t too bad I suppose.

So basically without handguns the world would be a violence free utopia, that’s the message I’m getting. *eye roll*

I’m a strong believe in not passing the blame onto inanimate objects such as guns.  The core of the problem is stupid people.

I don’t know when the above commercials were made, but they look pretty damn old.  Even the clothes they are wearing look dated.

You can catch up on some of their propaganda at PreventViolence.org.

To be fair, Prevent Violence also campaigns against child abuse, domestic violence, rape etc… I’ve got to wonder though, are they not blaming people in that too?  Like maybe if someone was hitting their child with a extension cord do you blame the cord?   Ban extension cords!

Thoughts?

Ohh man I remember these shitty commercials (grew up in L.A.) These were produced sometime in the mid-90’s and if memory serves me correctly the “California wellness foundation” was/is a creation of the Brady campaign. I might be wrong on that, but I do remember reading that it was essentially pure fiction being the propaganda arm of one of the many anti-gun groups out there.

Well the one I noticed is that it seems ratings are disabled on all the videos. You can’t give them a thumbs down.

Of course guns are the problem! There was never war, murder, or man-made suffering before them! The Dark Ages were just made up by gun owners! (sarcasm)

I’ve always gotten fired up when any group tries to blame 1 particular thing as the reason why there is violence. Video games, music, guns, movies. Its all the same. Nobody wants to be held accountable for their actions.
