Anti-Gun Everytown Ad Completely Ignores Gun Safety

Once again, Michael Bloomberg’s so-called Everytown for Gun Safety proved that it knows nothing about gun safety but is all about foisting more restrictive gun-control laws on America’s law-abiding gun owners. 

In a misleading advertisement promoting the anti-gun so-called “universal” background check initiative in Maine—on the ballot as Question 3—Everytown depicted a grandfather and grandson in the field. Ironically, this group that claims to be about gun safety disregards basic fundamentals of safe gun handling, as neither grandfather nor grandson appear equipped with eye and hearing protection while shooting. 

As NRA-ILA pointed out in an alert: “This depiction isn’t too surprising given that actual firearm safety has never been the focus of gun-control groups. Despite the moniker, Everytown for Gun Safety—unlike the NRA—doesn’t make available actual gun safety training services, programs or classes for adults and children who want to be ‘responsible and safe’ with guns.”
