Controversial New Anti-Gun Ad Debuts Near Anniversary of Crime in Newton, Connecticut

Only ten days before the anniversary of the massacre at a grade school in Newton, Connecticut, a new anti-gun ad exploiting children has debuted.

The ad has been co-sponsored by buttinski New York Mayor Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg and his group Mayors Against Illegal Guns and the anti-Constitution activist group Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense.

The two groups made a 30 second version and a 60 second version of the ad.

The ads were released on December 4 and are expected to run on cable stations later in the month.

The ads are titled “No More Silence” and feature a roomful of school children standing with bowed heads for a “moment of silence” in memory of those who lost their lives when a mentally disturbed teen began killing people at the Sandy Hook Elementary school.

“On December 14th, we’ll have a moment of silence for Newtown,” the narrator says as the ad begins.

“But with 26 more school shootings since that day,” the narrator continues, “Ask yourself: Is silence what America needs right now?”

The commercial ends with a ticking clock coming to its final tick and a dark screen reading: “Speak out now.”

The two anti-gun groups are planning a “week of action” to memorialize the shooting and further exploit it for their anti-Constitution goals.

“The ad is a commentary on the need for continued indignation among Americans at the inaction of Congress,” the group said in a press release.

What do you think of these anti-Constitution groups exploiting children like this?

    Never let a crisis go to waste. Speaking of which, the deranged left (BIRM) for decades has been using these sorts of heavy handed tactics. Remember James Brady being wheeled into Congress and paraded in front of the news cameras back during the Clinton-Mitchell-Foley-Feinstein gun grab of Clinton’s 1st term? They’ve also trotted out priests, grieving mothers, grandparents, pastors and celebs. It was inevitable that ultimately they’d sink to a level cynically of using children. Somewhere Machiavelli is nodding his head and smirking.

    Is silence what we really need right now?

    No, what we really need right now, is armed guards protecting our schools.

    • jim_m

      More like armed resistance

      • Commander_Chico

        That’s a laugh. I can see you being in an armed resistance cell like I see Richard Simmons playing in the NFL.

        Or are you a government provocateur?

        • jim_m

          Sorry private pyle, you are the foremost statist here. I am certain what worries you most is the thought of your government bene’s coming to an end.

          • Brucehenry

            Remarks like that advocating armed resistance won’t get you compared to Nelson Mandela, Jim. He was a great man, and you’re Jim.

    Is silence what we really need right now?

    No we need answers about Benghazi and a you tube video, Fast and Furious, “If you like your plan you can keep it”, Syria and lines in the sand, fudged unemployment numbers, NSA spying, targeting conservative groups, 32 ounce drinks, spread the wealth around, more people on food stamps than ever before, sluggish economy, losing your health insurance, changing laws you don’t like, and above all the total lack of class by an inane moronic liberal who makes an anti-gun ad on the anniversary of a horrific act of a madman when guns are statiscally proven to reduce crime.

    The depth of their ignorance or the gall of their politics sickens me.

  • Commander_Chico

    It’s a fair ad. You have to accept that innocent people, including children, will die if guns are freely available. There will continue to be massacres. It’s the price of freedom in a country with a lot of sad, sick people. To me, it’s worth it to keep the government in check against full tyranny.

    If you believe in something, you have to confront your opponents’ most powerful arguments. If you can’t, you’re a pussy.

      I’m sure you’ll get a full arsenal of “Chico Sucks” responses, frankly most of the time deservedly so LOL, but on this your spot on. Thought I’d give some attaboy attention from the permanent troll gallery.

    • Vagabond661

      You got it back-asswards. The price of freedom isn’t gun control. It’s help the sad, sick people. That way you retain your second amendmant rights and people who are mentally ill get helped.

      And by the way guns aren’t freely available. Go try and by one in Chicago or DC.

        “Help the sad, sick people” means more tax money for mental health care, maybe even intrusive nanny-statism.

    And a new pro-gun ad exploiting children has also debuted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQLQxnOZmvc

    Bet you don’t have a problem with that one, eh?

  • Constitution First

    Nothing about people killing people? Those devious guns are sneaking out at night and causing trouble all on their own?

    The LAST thing you will ever see coming out of a Progressive’s mouth is “Common Sense”. You’ll sooner see the return of Christ.

    Disarmament is about Societal Control and UN Agenda 21. The Left has a hysterical fear of Individual Rights, Personal Responsibility and the Republic’s return to the Constitution in a meaningful manner… very difficult to oppose an armed Patriot. (see Stalin, Mao, Hitler)
