(VIDEO) Bloomberg’s Anti Gun Super Bowl Ad Backfires When Facts Are Known
His Super Bowl Ad Inflated child deaths and framed the example as a child’s death to push for gun control
Democratic Presidential hopeful and former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg ran a Super Bowl ad which made the claim that ” 2,900 children die from gun violence every year.”
Sounds terrible, right?
Unfortunately for Mike the only study that has the 2,900 figure is one that also includes 18 & 19 year old teenage adults. It is no less tragic that about half of the victims were not children but the figure just isn’t factual and we believe he’s just attempting to play on the emotions of uninformed voters.
“It is regrettable but not surprising that salient facts didn’t make the ad. Bloomberg cherry-picked aspects of the story to push his agenda. Bloomberg pushes for confiscation of guns and stripping regular Americans of our right to self-defense while he enjoys armed security 24/7. He sees America as his kingdom, and the rest of us as his peasants.”
– Amy Hunter, director of media relations at the National Rifle Association
Now for the second misleading point…
George Kemp, the victim referenced in the ad, was 20 years old at the time of his death according to court documents from a Texas state appellate court.
“On September 26, 2013, just before midnight, the police received a dispatch for shots fired. “When they arrived, they discovered a deceased male, later identified as George Kemp, age 20, lying face down in a pool of blood.”
-Excerpt from the court opinion
The New York billionaire was slammed by NRA members for pushing his anti-American gun control agenda.
“Mike Bloomberg suggests that disarming minority males like myself will keep us alive. But I have news for you: Mike Bloomberg is a white billionaire who has no place in telling me how I can defend myself or my loved ones. As an African American male that you want to disarm, I promise you will never take away my Second Amendment.”
– a man named Rehn said in a video response to the ad Sunday.
