When Everytown for Gun Safety released its anti-gun Public Service Announcement, the mainstream media dutifully announced its arrival and included links to the ad. The gunblogosphere immediately highlighted the fact that the ad was actually pro-gun – demonstrating a woman’s need to arm herself against domestic violence. Pro-gun YouTubers then swung into gear, producing alternative versions of Everytown’s anti-gun agitprop with a very different outcome. While I’m not sure the parodies got as many eyeballs as the Bloomberg-sponsored civilian disarmament PSA, this battle for hearts and minds shows liberty-loving Americans are no longer disarmed, media-wise. Then again, billionaire Bloomberg’s Everytown isn’t disarmed, either. Or amused. Check this out . . .
