It’s hard to pick the most idiotic political movement in this country, but I have to think the anti-gun movement is up there. Behold:
For those of you who don’t want to sit through it, it shows a teenage boy taking a gun out of his parents dresser. He tucks it into his backpack and goes to school to the sounds of ominous music. He waits until after class, goes up to the teacher and … turns it into the teacher, asking her to take it away because he doesn’t feel safe with it in the house.
Let’s count the number of crimes committed in this “uplifting” ad:
1. Illegal possession of a firearm by a minor.
2. Weapons theft (a felony)
3. Unlicensed conceal carry.
4. Carrying a weapon onto school grounds (a federal crime)
5. Transfer of a weapon without a background check (a crime in some states)
Let’s also note that this encourages kids to pick up and handle weapons, something the damned NRA works hard to discourage kids from doing.
It’s too bad I already gave out the Turkeys of the Year awards.
