On April 7 Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety released a new PSA wherein children dubbed “Lil’ Waynes” mock NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre’s contention that Americans need to arm themselves against terrorists, home invaders, and carjackers.
The clear implication of the PSA is that these things are just so many hobgoblins put forth by LaPierre for the simple goal of keeping NRA membership high and gun sales soaring.
In reality, the PSA comes while the remaining alleged Boston Marathon bomber is on trial and one day after Breitbart News reported a carjacking that could have cost a Smyrna, Georgia woman her life, were it not for an armed bystander. Moreover, the PSA comes just three days after a home invasion in Kentucky where the homeowner was able to save his life by firing his handgun at the invader while under attack.
But Bloomberg and company mock these occurances with their “Lil’ Waynes.”
