We have seen a lot of anti-gun control rhetoric from the right-wing and all of it has been debunked. Still, the NRA-supporting gun nuts make claims like,”Guns in the home are safer!” and “Good guys with guns will always stop bad guys with gun!” But, I recently came across an anti-gun control commercial that is perhaps the stupidest thing I have ever seen.
The commercial starts out with a man who says:
Well yeah, it’s getting tough out there. Yeah, no doubt. I work in home invasions mostly, some murder, occasional rape — if she’s hot or really bitchy. Uh, and I’m a huge advocate of gun control, absolutely. Competition is stiff and it doesn’t help that every time I kick in a door or smash a window, that I face the possibility of being shot and killed. Listen, the fact is, allowing citizens to own guns creates a hostile work environment for me and my associates.
The premise of the entire commercial is that “banning guns” will make the country less safe. This is bullshit, of course, and all you have to do is look at the U.K. for proof of that. Further, liberals do not want their guns anyway. We just want common sense gun laws. And finally, this commercial leaves you with the impression that having a gun in your home will make you “safer,” but according to experts, people who have guns in their homes are more likely to commit suicide or be murdered.
But, you know, who cares about facts when you have inflammatory rhetoric, anyway?
