An anti-gun group released a video yesterday mocking the Second Amendment, but the video is so bad, it’s hilarious to watch.
The video, produced by the Brady Campaign, features two “criminals” who promote “crimadvisor.com,” a web site that tells them “which states have loose gun laws.”
“I have some violent friends; we all wear leather jackets and scream at women, and we want to find out which states we can buy and sell guns easy,” one of the “criminals” says, to which the other responds with “Crimadvisor.com, that’s the site to find out where it’s easiest for felons and fugitives to buy, carry and even traffic guns.”
Of course, in real life violent criminals couldn’t care less about laws; otherwise they wouldn’t be robbing and killing.
Seriously, do you think the drug cartels that overran Mexico and left it a failed state gave a crap that the country has some of the strongest gun control laws in the western hemisphere? No, because they were too busy gunning down tourists in Cancún who were left defenseless by gun control.
“More than 70,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since 2007,” Reuters reported back in 2013, and the number has only skyrocketed since then.
Mexico’s only hope is from the armed militias who have defied the country’s gun laws to defend their communities from the cartels.
And what about the Chicago gangs who control the city’s drug trade, do you actually think they ever said to themselves, “Geez, maybe we shouldn’t have murdered 73 people in one weekend because we broke a bunch of gun control laws in the process?” Of course not.
The murders in Chicago only slowed down after Illinois enacted a concealed carry law.
“The facts are every time guns have been allowed, concealed carry has been allowed, the crime rate has gone down,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Texas Republican, said just months before Illinois passed its concealed carry bill in 2013.
Just like the drug laws that have granted cartels control over the narcotics trade, gun laws have granted criminals control over the population by neutering the right to self-defense.
And the Brady Campaign video is a microcosm of the gun control movement: false logic presented as fact that’s ripe for ridicule.
But while the video is funny to laugh at, gun control is not funny at all; it has contributed to the most disgusting wave of violence the world has ever seen.
