Sad: Bloomberg anti-gun ad violates 3 gun safety rules…

Blue Grass Pundit

Gov. Cuomo had no idea 7-round magazines weren’t available. Mayor Bloomberg has no idea how to safely handle a gun…

Via WaTi:

Mike Bloomberg is spending $12 million on attack ads designed to force U.S. senators to vote for national gun control laws that will supposedly save lives. However, the New York mayor’s commercials running in 13 states over the next two weeks could cause injury or death by showcasing irresponsible handling of a firearm.  

Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, produced two ads featuring a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap and sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck. While a child swings on a tire in the background, the man says, “I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

The ad does not specify if the man is an actor, but he violates all three gun safety rules taught by the National Rifle Association (NRA). (Click here to see the ads.)
The first rule is to always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. In this case, the children are playing in the yard. Although the viewers can’t see what is to the side of the truck, the man should be pointing the muzzle in the air or at the ground.

The second NRA rule is always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.

  1. Bloomberg can afford to spend billions of dollars for the ads, but he doesn’t want to pay to hire a decent actor. How pathetic. What a dumbass. He can’t do anything right whether it is legal or illegal.

    1. Thank you for posting this piece.
      Gun safety 101, and very obvious. 🙂
      However, the actor has nothing to do with the directing. He’s a hired hand, a “day player.” His dialogue, wardrobe, body language, the background…everything is devised to send a “message” and completely out of his control. Specific “story boards” were approved by the producers and must be followed.
      Yes, out of “Principle,” he could have turned down the “Gig” (but there are a lot of other actors in NY, trying to pay the rent, who would take ANY paying gig in a heartbeat).
      It’s all “Wag The Dog”, Advertising. Unfortunately, Sheeple buy into it.

      1. Angel, I just HAVE to ask:

        Has Bloominidiot ever done ONE thing right?

        Probably a dumb question, but…………….


    1. Like the excellent “buy a shotgun” tip?

      Did you see the video of the women who took his advice on that one, and got knocked on their keysters when they fired them?

      Sorry, but it was hilarious. 🙂
