CCRKBA Blasts ‘Public Service’ Message That Children Violate Gun Laws

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today labeled a so-called ‘public service announcement” that literally encourages teens to commit firearms felonies ostensibly to get firearms out of their homes in the interest of “safety.”

The Washington Times and other sources identify the PSA as having been produced by a San Francisco-based production company called Sleeper 13 Productions.

The nearly three-minute video shows a teen taking what appears to be a loaded handgun out of his parents’ drawer, hiding it in a backpack and taking it to school, where he hands it over to a teacher and asking that the gun be taken away.

“The series of crimes depicted in this video is simply astonishing,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “We’re talking about felony theft of a firearm, illegal possession of a handgun by a minor, having a gun in a school, illegal concealed carry by a minor, brandishing and maybe one or two other crimes, depending upon the jurisdiction.

“The fact that the gun appears to be a very real-looking BB pistol is not the point,” he noted. “The scenario obviously depicts what some youngster should do with a real handgun. Besides, even bringing a BB gun to school is against the law, and at the very least, the boy in this video would wind up being arrested and face felony charges.

“We understand from published reports that angry messages have been showing up on this company’s Facebook page,” Gottlieb said, “and rightly so. The message of this video is so monumentally stupid that if any youth does something like this after watching it, the producers should face charges. If someone is hurt, they should face both criminal and civil liability.”

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Gottlieb noted, has a long history of promoting firearms safety.

“This video isn’t a public service announcement,” he said, “but a public dis-service and the producers ought to be ashamed.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

Same way Nazi Germany started by publically educating children that personal gun possession was wrong and that kids should turn their parents into their teachers so that their weapons could be confiscated AND the parents flagged as potential subversives. I am all for positive education of gun use/possession/safety/storage but any education that suggests weapons be exposed or turned into has the wrong approach. Educate kids to leave guns alone and find an adult. Touching is wrong PERIOD. Be it for good intention or not. See it Leave It Get Help PERIOD. Having kids rummaging thru mom or dad’s dressers is… Read more »

Bogus! Apparently the kid has had some gun training. See how he held the gun with his finger OFF the trigger! That is taught behavior, certainly not learned watching TV or movies. Was he afraid of the gun or his parents? Why encourage stealing and breaking so many laws? Why not promote a conversation with his parents? How did he know where the gun was and why was it not locked up? Oh right, what was I thinking? This was never intended to make sense, just promote their agenda. It makes perfect sense when you consider it came out of… Read more »

This is right out of the radical ‘Left’s’ playbook. In their minds ‘the end justifies the means’. So what if the young kid gets arrested, or worse yet, shot by police. This drives home the idea of a ‘total gun ban’ because as long as there are guns there are people who will break gun laws.

Just like David Gregory holding an outlawed magazine in DC , the film here IS the evidence. Bring charges now.
