[CAUTION: SPOILER ALERTS IN VIDEO] I’ve never seen ‘The Walking Dead’ (I seem to run into enough mindless, shambling, brain-suckers as it is) but the point of this video is clear enough. One wanna-be strongman in AMC’s zombietastic series is apparently bent on post-apocalyptic world domination. Hence the lesson drawn by the bearded alley-dweller above.
As RF is wont to say, culture eats strategy for lunch. Seeing the practical effects of gun control and civilian disarmament on TV, in movies, books, comics — wherever — outperforms out of all of the beautifully produced promo spots the NRA and other pro-2A orgs will ever be able to produce.
But wait: the media are largely owned, produced, edited, and performed by people who are, for the most part, hostile to Second Amendment civil rights. Hence the problem. And the question: given the relative potential power of a well-produced movie or TV show on non-interested and fence-sitting low information viewers, what can gun rights supporters do to get their message out there?
