Don’t Learn Gun Safety From Gun-Grabbers

A gun pointed at the next kid to come running around the truck.

As mentioned earlier, NYC’s nanny statist Mayor Michael Bloomberg is spending $12 million on a propaganda blitz attacking the fundamental right of self-defense. Since he is taking upon himself the authority to dictate firearms policy to the whole country, you might think he is an expert on the topic, or at least that he would know enough to hire experts. Then again, you might think, based on long experience, that everything Bloomberg does is wrong:

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.”

Expanded background checks are the latest nose-in-the-tent strategy for denying Second Amendment rights. Prescribed antidepressants after you got back from Afghanistan? No gun rights for you, bitter clinger.

Accompanying text proclaims the actor in the ad to be a gun owner. Yet in the ad he violates up to three key gun safety rules taught by the NRA by not keeping the muzzle pointed in a safe direction, not keeping his finger off the trigger until ready to fire, and for all we can tell, not keeping the gun unloaded unless there is a reason for it to be loaded, since the action isn’t open to show an empty chamber — as it would be in a more responsible ad.

Learn about guns from people who respect them, not from tyrants who want to take them away — tyrants like Dianne Feinstein, seen here demonstrating her expertise by inserting a magazine into an AK-47 with the deftness of a chimpanzee performing brain surgery:


Hopefully this was taken before she acquired her concealed carry permit.

As comedy gold, not even Frankenfeinstein can top single-issue anti-gun congresscretin Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), whose whole existence is devoted to coercively saving us from our own legally owned firearms, starting with those with barrel shrouds, and who describes a barrel shroud as a “shoulder thing that goes up”:

Gun-grabbing moonbats don’t pass the laugh test. But no one will be laughing if tragedy results from some fool handling a firearm like a moonbat would.

    Typical Liberal Ignorance! Telling Real Gun Owners Whats best, and they know the Least, Like the Fudd in the Picture..Yeah! That thingy that goes up the Shoulder should be a Rope!

    Semper Fi

    Grown many a thick beard in my time, never once got it so neatly trimmed and symmetrical. I guess glue and paint is the way to go.

  4. Laura Castellano says:

    Every time I see this clip, I wonder if she even knows what a barrel is. Her answer makes no sense at all.

  5. Dr.9 says:

    Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), who’s husband was one of several people shot and killed aboard a NY commuter train years ago by a lone psycho with “an illegal” gun, and who received a “sympathy” vote from her fellow Long Island liberals, has never been known to have produced a single thing as a member of congress, other than her usual anti-gun rants.

    She has been living off the tax payers all these years, and those tax payers have absolutely nothing from her to show for it. Elections have consequences? You bet they do, but for whom?

  6. Xavier says:

    Tell Feinstein when loading to hold the pointy end under her chin.

  7. Jay B. says:

    Sorry Dave but I think you miss the point here. This ad is to precisely show that a “normal” gun owner is a dangerous hick.

    Guys, keep in mind an advertisement is filmed, thus staged. There’s a reason why there is a kid in the background instead of something else, like there is a reason for the man to keep a finger on the trigger. Their target audience will eat this like candy.

  8. StanInTexas says:

    Yes, we should listen to the gun-fearing wussies on the Left to tell us how to use a gun.

    Just like we should listen to the member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns to tell us how to stop gun violence. Members like this…
    Mayor James Schiliro of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, a member of Michael Bloomberg’s MAIG coalition, held a minor hostage at gun point.

  9. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Would you hunt with this moron with the way he is handling that firearm ?
    Bloomberg’s stooges need some gun safety training

    Maybe McCarthy thinks a “barrel shroud” will keep guns from reproducing.

  10. Dupree says:

    A vast majority of NY counties have passed resolutions against the poorly named NY SAFE Act. Yet the tyrants in Albany and NYC keep ignoring the people.

  11. dan says:

    reminds me that I have to order a new shroud for the wild-child (how he lost the other one….)

    I agree with ya, Jay. Good analysis.

  14. Chris says:

    Bloomberg is a genius, all he needs is a guy from central casting dressed as a redneck to spout his anti-gun bull and country rubes like us will be powerless to resist his persuasion. With regard to Carolyn McCarthy’s video, the thing I find most frightening is that apparently she is interested banning slings.

  15. Jimbo says:

    Liberals don’t have a clue. Not a single one. Stupid is as stupid does.

  16. Joey Plugs says:

    The actor should go to balcony on his country mansion and fire off two warning shots into the air.

  17. RonRaygun says:

    They shoulda’ had the jacka$$ Jimboy Carrey star in this misinformed, ill-conceived bucket of claptrap, it’s right up his alley.

  18. The Shell Answer Man says:

    Dear C. McCarthy the barrel shroud protects your hands from heat. I know you are a democRAT and smarter than everyone else but maybe keep quiet about topics you know nothing about.

  19. TED says:

    Subject: “Finally ….. A well-dressed Wal-Mart shopper!!’

    Just a housewife out shopping in Alaska.
    No permit required in Alaska for either open
    (must be 18) or concealed (must be 21) carry.

    One sure fire way to end purse snatching………

  20. Comrade J says:

    I am not sure Jay/Elithabeth, though who knows these idiots might think that somehow it reflects bad on the protectors of the 2nd Amd.

    The reason I disagree is that the actor in the ad identifies with Bloomberg’s agenda and thus [rightfully] reflects the ignorance of Bloomberg and his ilk.

    Bonus pictures of Dianne Feinstein with AK47 begging for a accident:

    – Finger on the trigger
    – Closed bolt?
    – Pointing at the audience

    Bloombjerk your typical liberal hypotcrit arrogant miserble old peacock strutting around again and that liberal rag TIME had this jerks double ugly mug on the front cover of their rag supporting GUN CONTROL typical leftists news rag i hope TIME gose the way of NEWSWEEK and Bloomberg and his MAYORS AGAINST ILLEGAL GUNS gose the way of the dinasour and whig party

  22. Jay B. says:

    Comrade J says:

    My dad would have slapped me for even pointing a gun at someone like Feinstein’s doing.

    The worst here is that if a shot had gone off and she hit someone, the liberal media would spin this as “proof” that guns are dangerous and need to be strictly controlled.

    I agree that liberals are pretty much unaware of gun safety but they’re also well versed in lying and media manipulation. That bearded guy in the commercial is probably a latte sipping beta male who never held a gun before but the director was still composing the shots. “Put that kid over there.. no, to the right where we can see it.. yes, finger on the trigger and point it subtly to the right as if you could shoot the child.”

  23. dan says:

    the only thing the libtards have to worry about is the two or three million REAL rednecks with pickups and tracking dogs who are just itching to do a little hunting and don’t like city people or politicians (or ANYbody) telling them what to do…and truth be told ,I keep my finger up alongside the trigger and haven’t eer had a problem even when fast deploying…but I feel better when pointy end is up.

  24. Flu-Bird says:

    Theres a sceine in the notorious B-Movie PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE showing this guy using his pistol in the most dangerous ways(straches his shoulder with it,streightens his hat with it,shakes it barrel end first int eh face ofa cop with finger on the trigger(inpecter clusue move over)This wank needs to be used by the NRA on the hypocracy and irresponibilty of gun control facsist

  25. The Liberal says:

    Doop doop doopity doop not all liberals are against gun ownership, and, in the USA at least, most of them are actually not! Take me, for instance. I’m a socialist atheist, and I love me some guns. I like shooting them, I like carrying them, I like my .357 magnum revolver. Why do I conceal carry that monstrosity? Because semi-autos are for pussies, plain and simple, and you don’t need that many rounds if you’re good.

    What does that have to do with anything? I support background and mental health checks before firearm purchases, and smarter ways to register weaponry. I won’t bore you with minutia, as usual, because you don’t care and already hate me. But in any case, those background/mental health checks need to be accompanied by things to fix them! Like, free therapy for people that fail the mental exam, so that they can work through their problems without shooting up a school or church. I support mandatory weapons training classes when you buy a firearm. You need to learn how to fire, reload, repair, and disassemble/reassemble it before you leave the store. Refresher courses offered each month, provided by the state. Thus, people of sound mind will be able to have guns, those that are legit risks to society will not, but will receive help so that they -can- buy guns, and everyone will know how to use their brand new rifle.

    But of course, we should just throw more guns at the problem. That’ll work. Never has before, but it will this time. Or next time. Hundreds of dead children are worth it, though!

  26. chester arthur says:

    Carolyn McCarthy really has less knowledge about guns than her twin brother Charlie McCarthy(old ventriloquist joke for non-history reading liberals). Her husband and son were shot by a racist killer who waited to kill white people until his commuter train was outside NYC so the mayor at the time(Dinkins) wouldn’t be associated with or embarrassed by his actions.Since then she has been regaling us with her vast knowledge of ‘high-capacity-clips’ and other non-sense that liberals substitute when knowledge would be handy.I can’t wait for the day when N.Y. voters become as sophisticated in their political choices as the parts of the country they parody with the midget mayor’s comedic stupidity.

  27. Jay B. says:

    What is this, we’ve got a new troll combing every thread to spout talking points? Hey Liberal, did the DNC get to pay their trolls?

[…] TV ads that violate basic gun safety laws, slapstick attempts to load rifles, bizarre assertions that women can’t handle low-recoil AR-15s and that barrel shrouds are shoulder things that go up are only the tip of the iceberg of ignorance when it comes to guns and the authoritarian liberals who want to regulate them out of our hands.
