Anti-Gun Ad Makes Gawker “Want To Shoot Stuff”

Gawker, a blog that dishes out Manhattan media news and gossip, wonders how effective this visually stunning British anti-gun ad is, especially in a country where firearm possession is already illegal. The spot makes its writers want to go out and shoot stuff, and as they put it, “the first 50 seconds . . . would make a perfect opening for an NRA PowerPoint recruitment presentation.”

Check it out and tell us what you think.

Hell yeah, I wanna go shoot stuff!Who wouldn't?

Rob

Now I feel the urge to leave the office early, grab my AR-15 and head out to the range.

Here's one of my personal favorites: take an empty Thompson's Water Seal can and fill it completely full of water, reattach the cap, and shoot it with a 12 gauge deer slug. The explosion is really something to behold.

Aaron Pape

The biggest piece of BS I've ever seen.

Nate

how bout a .223 and a truck bed full of water filled milk jugs, thats a recipe for fun.

William

Anyone know what kind of gun was used and in what caliber for this video?

Jonny

They're right no I want to go out and and shoot everything in that video, besides the kid of course.

FACTS TO PONDER:
(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services.

Now think about this:
Guns:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million..)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188

Statistics courtesy of the FBI

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT
ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
