I posted about ads being run by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group earlier today, but commenters pointed out something I missed.
In addition to the actor being made to look like a total rube (apparently this is how Bloomberg’s group sees those of us out here in fly-over country), he’s not practicing proper gun safety. The bewhiskered gentleman, supposedly a gun enthusiast, regales us from the tailgate of his pickup truck about the need for more gun laws all while sitting there with his finger on the trigger.
That’s a big no-no for anyone who knows anything about gun safety. Which makes it kind of hard to believe that this guy is the gun owner he says he is.
Let’s hope that weapon wasn’t loaded, and that nobody was standing downrange from it.
