A Bloomberg anti-gun ad intended to encourage everyone to embrace gun-control laws appears to have the opposite results—supporting pro-gun self-defense rights.
Do Liberals watch the ad and actually believe that in their Dystopian world—criminals obey laws and therefore would never be armed? Cause that works so well in gun-control capitol of Chicago.
For anyone that missed it, Bloomberg’s ad is posted below along with an interesting MyFoxNY report seen here on the unintended results from the ad.

Umm. OK. So who else thinks that commercial is only going to want to make people buy guns?
This is the latest “shock” video produced by Bloomberg’s anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety. In the video a few points are illustrated, so let’s talk about them:
1. When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. The woman in the video is on the phone with the police and is completely unable to defend herself in the seconds it takes for a violent crime to happen.
2. The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Who was the woman on the phone with? The police. The police have guns. She was begging someone with a gun to come and save her, most likely by shooting the suspect (her ex). If she had a gun, she could have been that good guy with a gun.
3. Locks and security systems only keep good people out. If someone really wants to get into your home and cause harm to you and your family, they will. The only way to stop them is to physically stop them.
Not really sure what Everytown is going for here, unless they really are trying to sell more guns now.
Show this video to non-gun owning friend and ask them what it makes them want to do. I bet the answer is go buy a gun. Also, of course comments and ratings are disabled for the video.
Below is one video redux example with alternative ending:
