Bloomberg wastes $12Mil in Ads promoting BAD Trigger Discipline with Actors/Fake GunOwners!Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Tue, 03/26/2013 - 02:46
One more evidence the know-nothing arrogant 'Ruling Class' buffoons laughing at 'peons' with 100% life-harming PR while feigning to 'save our lives.'
Dear Bloomberg, ALWAYS keep your damn booger finger off the trigger! (Until you're ready to...)
Most hilariously ironic part? The ad that features MAIG's stereotyped idea of a typical 'gunowner' who has his finger near the trigger, is titled "RESPONSIBLE"!!!
Of course, they shut down comments and voting on the YouTube vid!
Here's another, titled "Family" [of buffoons, perhaps.]
** Okay, granted, so technically, since the trigger area lighting is dark, they can kinda get away with it; in the "Responsible" vid, it looks like his finger's riding the front of the trigger guard, or near or on the shell loading port, not the trigger itself. But, from a quick glance, because he's got his finger curled inward toward the receiver, he clearly looks like he's pressing the trigger. Besides, no adept gunnie ever holds a gun that way; either it's on a sling, inside a holster, gripped away from the trigger area, or 'lapped' in your arms pointed in a 'neutral' direction.
Thanks but no thanks Bloomnanny: You can keep your (less than) BigGulp, we'll keep our full, normal capacity mags and "assault weapons."

Part of being a gun owner is knowing and respecting the serious responsibilities that come with the constitutional right to own a firearm. A large part of the National Rifle Association’s platform is dedicated to promoting gun safety.
The NRA promotes three basic, must-follow gun safety rules:
1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage.
2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot. When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.
3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use. Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition.
Why do we bring this up, other than to remind responsible gun owners to continue handling their firearms safely?
Well, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is spending about $12 million to produce and air anti-gun attack ads aimed at pressuring U.S. senators to support national gun control legislation. One of the actors that stars in two of the anti-gun ads, supposedly a “responsible,” Second-Amendment supporting gun owner, breaks all three basic gun safety rules, according to the Washington Times.

Ad entitled "Responsible" produced by Mayor Mike Bloomberg's organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The ad is running in 13 states to pressure U.S. senators to vote for gun-control legislation.
Mike Bloomberg is spending $12 million on attack ads designed to force U.S. senators to vote for national gun control laws that will supposedly save lives. However, the New York mayor’s commercials running in 13 states over the next two weeks could cause injury or death by showcasing irresponsible handling of a firearm.
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.”
The ad does not specify if the man is an actor, but the text accompanying it says he is a “gun owner.” Either way, the man violates all three gun safety rules taught by the National Rifle Association (NRA). (Click here to see the ads.)
Cooper advocated four basic rules of gun safety:
1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.
2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)
3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.
4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.
And, as taught by the stewards of the school that Cooper founded: GunSite

Gunsite instructor Bob Whaley shares with NSSF's Mark Thomas Gunsite's 4 rules of firearm safety that when followed will help ensure the highest level of safety. But, knowing them isn't enough, Bob suggests that we must practice safe gun handling skills until they become part of our personalities. (NSSF Video)
