Brady Campaign Brags About Assisting With Anti-Gun TV Episode

With raging anti-gun sentiment epidemic in Hollywood, it’s likely that few gun owners will be surprised to learn that ABC worked closely with a prominent gun-ban group for a recent anti-gun episode of “Designated Survivor.” 

According to a report at freebeacon.com, Brady Campaign (formerly Handgun Control Inc.) leaders are bragging about the input they had in the episode, which managed to push several pieces of legislation, measures that failed at the federal level last year, as “common-sense.” “Our president Dan Gross presented to members of their team a while back before the season began about representing gun violence on screen and spent time educating them on the issue,” fawned Brendan Kelly, Brady Campaign spokesman. 

With TV producers’ “education” coming from such a biased individual who has never seen a piece of anti-gun legislation he didn’t like, it’s doubtful that TV shows and filmmakers are going to accurately address either the issue of legal gun ownership or violent crime—two completely unrelated issues—anytime soon.
