NRA fires back at Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad with powerful ad of its own
The National Rifle Association on Sunday issued a fierce response to Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
The misleading ad claimed that 2,900 children die from gun violence every year. However, as Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski noted, almost half of those “children” are actually adults ages 18 and 19. In fact, the ad merely cites misleading data from Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
In response, the NRA issued an ad of its own blasting Bloomberg’s gun control push. The ad includes direct responses from numerous Second Amendment supporters.
“As the mother of a 3-year-old little boy, my family means everything to me. As a woman, I believe that the best way to protect my family is with a firearm. And Michael Bloomberg will never take that right away from me,” one woman says. “I’m the gun lobby and I am not afraid of Michael Bloomberg. Mike, come and take it.”
“It’s very important to me to keep my home secure and that is why there is a gun on the left side of my bed and the right side. Mr. Bloomberg, your home is protected by armed guards at all times. Why can’t I exercise my Second Amendment rights to protect mine? I am not afraid of Michael Bloomberg,” another woman says.
