speak up

Apparently in 4 out of 5 school shootings the attacker tells someone about it first:

There are three more videos on their YouTube channel that are more or less the same, and have the message:

Call 1-866-SPEAK-UP to anonymously report a weapon threat at school.

I don’t see eye to eye with pretty much everything the Brady Campaign stands for… banning “assault clips” (LOL), disarmament and all that, but I’ll say that these ads are actually decent (despite the fact they look as if they were made in the early 90s), compared to their usual crap.    I have two questions:

  1. What is your hotline going to do, that calling the police directly will not accomplish?  
  2. Are you prepared to ask proper questions, to make sure you’re not sending SWAT to schools where some kid has a mock gun handled umbrella or made a gun shape with his fingers?

Brady-Campaign-Ban-Assault-ClipsWe’ll see how this goes.  Anyone have any thoughts or other concerns?  This is one group of videos The Brady Campaign could likely keep comments open on, and people wouldn’t tear them a new one.
