Northborough, MA. –-( The Gun Owners’ Action League today wondered if Clear Channel and other local billboard companies are playing an April Fools joke as it was released that John Rosenthal of Stop Handgun Violence is receiving free advertising promoting a false and discriminatory message.

The message being broadcast for Mr. Rosenthal, at no charge by the companies, provides inaccurate, discriminatory, and misleading information, which will do nothing to bolster firearms safety or prevent crime.

“Our first thought was, is this a joke?  Because the messaging certainly does not reflect reality.” said Jim Wallace, Executive Director of GOAL.

Over the last two decades the restrictive gun laws of Massachusetts have been an abysmal failure, as demonstrated by the drastic increase in violent crime since the passage of these laws in 1998.  The policies and messaging broadcast by Stop Handgun Violence have continually misled the public on the truth behind Massachusetts’ gun laws.  This long-term ruse is simply an effort to convince the general public to discriminate against the rights of law-abiding gun owners.

“If the billboard companies were really interested in saving lives they would grant space to GOAL.  We have a proven record of providing gun safety and legislative solutions that work,” said Mr. Wallace.  “Since 1998, firearm related homicides have doubled and firearm related assaults have tripled.”

In the name of providing a true solution and accurate messaging GOAL is asking Clear Channel and the other billboard companies to either grant equal space to GOAL or take down the discriminatory, misleading messaging provided to Mr. Rosenthal at no charge.


GOAL is asking readers to contact Clear Channel and ask that they grant this request including using #BillboardTruth in social media messaging.

Gun Owners’ Action League is the official state firearms association in Massachusetts. We are an association of law-abiding citizens who believe in the basic right of firearms ownership for competition, recreation and self-protection. GOAL works hard to defend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights against those in Massachusetts who wish to infringe upon the freedoms guaranteed by our forefathers. The programs sponsored and developed by Gun Owners’ Action League are supported by competitors, sportsmen, recreational shooters and law enforcement throughout the state. We were formed in 1974 to protect the right to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We are recognized as the state’s premier gun rights association.

Typical liberal girly-man…Just look at him trying to look like a badass in that Carhartt jacket. If he were a real man at all he wouldn’t soil himself at the mere sight of a firearm!

There are very few things that I find more perplexing than Male Gun Control advocates…I mean, do they still have tests or what?


Tom, do you mean “testes” or are you referring to some actual ‘test’?


I think he means they are spineless bitches with no balls,just a mouth ! These are the type douche bags that peek through the blinds and call the police to come rescue their usless asses at a percieved sign of trouble !
