Gun-banning Schumer knows that those ridiculous ads from Mayors Against Illegal Guns are hurting his cause.
“Here’s what he thinks that advertising should look like: “An ad that I’d like to see would say something like, ‘Hi, my name is Joe Smith. I own Jones Gun Shop in Winnemucca, Nevada. And I’m an N.R.A. member. My daddy was an N.R.A. member. And my kids will be N.R.A. members. But I’m not against background checks. The N.R.A.’s wrong on that one because it doesn’t hurt me and my right to bear arms.”
Schumer, I work in advertising, I know there are things you can’t sell. You can’t sell meat to a vegetarian, you can’t sell an SUV to a tree hugger, and you can’t sell gun control to gun owners (unless they’re traitors like you, Mr. Guns For Me But Not Thee).
I also know that if someone claims to be an NRA member, the NRA is going to have his name and address, which means we’ll know if he’s lying or not.
By the way, when people are told that background checks means registration, they are against them. Private gun sellers and even fathers giving guns to their sons or a neighbor when they go on vacation don’t want to deal with the red tape of a background check.
There are more than 20,000 gun laws, a lot of them are unconstitutional, so here’s an idea: Stop fighting guns and start fighting CRIME.
