[Video] YouTuber Fixes “Everytown” Domestic Abuse Ad With a Little Taste of Defensive Gun Usage
Remember the ad created by Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety a couple of days ago? The one that seemed like it was basically an ad for WHY women should be armed and know how to use a firearm? Well, it looks like one resourceful YouTuber has released a revised version, and it ends the way it should (see above).
Regarding the original video, I made the following points,
1. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. The woman in the video is on the phone with the police and is completely unable to defend herself in the seconds it takes for a violent crime to happen.
2. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Who was the woman on the phone with? The police. The police have guns. She was begging someone with a gun to come and save her, most likely by shooting the suspect (her ex). If she had a gun, she could have been that good guy with a gun.
3. Locks and security systems only keep good people out. If someone really wants to get into your home and cause harm to you and your family, they will. The only way to stop them is to physically stop them.
As you can tell, the new video above addresses those points perfectly.
Here is the original (still a good ad to promote gun ownership in my opinion).
