    That ad has been around for several years in various forms, radio, billboard and TV.
    I have seen it several times, and hate it. Always want to say it wasn't the gun that put your brother in jail....it was the fact he was a criminal and shouldn't be around you to lead you down the path to a life of crime...you are better off!

    Why we don't do that...there are some pro gun billboard campaigns around in various areas, but basically ads are very expensive.....

    OCDO is a big advertisement.
    Every time you open carry in public, you are our advertisement.
    Every time citizens see you as an upstanding citizen with a gun, not as a threat, criminal, crazy or OMG "Gun Nut" you are our advertisement.
    Every time you get to talk to someone about open carry, and constitutional rights, you are our advertisement.

    I really want to remake this commercial with one of my boys narrating. It wasn't the "GUN", it was that your brother, whom you call your best friend so my guess is you wont' be far behind in his footstep, "Committed crimes", one which was to get a gun under the age of 18.

    I just have been too lazy to download and overdub that commercial, and then write a script for my kid to recite.

    This commercial drives me nuts so misleeding.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    Why haven't we or the NRA, or2ndAd. Foundationput together something like this?
    Need one in a Seattle City Park, With an OC Dad pushing his kid on a swing. Then a mugger runs up with a knife and demands wallet, gun is drawn, knife is dropped and mugger is running off. Fade to same park, showing muggers hand with knife as he passes "Guns Banned" sign. then walks up to father no carry. Next fade to dieing father altenating shots to aslowing heart rate between a screaming little girl, a gun ban sign, a dieing dad, a gun ban sign, a pool of blood, a gun ban sign, a bloody knife, end with a gun ban sign.

    Why don't you guys get together and make your own "youtube" video.....pass it around....less cheap, and you get views not only in seattle, wa, pacific northwest, the world sees it!

    But for it to be a hit, it has to be short, dramatic, and throw a strong message to the viewer....

    Edited to add:

    And yes, I seen that billboard ad, on 13th and fir street in seattle near international district.


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Then this is the place for you! Click here to get back at them!

    Big time libs, both of them, I'm sorry to say. I'm a huge Stephen King fan, but at least he usually keeps his political affiliations on the down-low. Speilberg campaigned for Obama.
    It is very wise to not take a watermelon lightly.

    People who can afford to hire other people to carry guns for them have a tendency to be anti-gun.I know this from personal experience in working for such people in the past.

    And yes, most of themtruly believe its not hypocritical.

    Interestingly enough, pretty much the same exact people believe their wealth makes them part of an American "aristocracy". :quirky

    Notice a trend?
