Shocking Anti-Gun PSA

A new public service announcement from Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (the same group behind a series of provocative print ads earlier this year) paints a stark picture of what kids face as they go back to school this year. In the PSA, a typical suburban family gets going with their day -- the mom drinking her coffee, her son brushing his teeth, the family eating breakfast. But then the music turns eerie as the mom straps her son into a bulletproof vest with a target on it, and send him on his way.

This Shocking New Anti-Gun PSA Will Disturb You-

What's your take on the ad?  Is it too extreme or does it encourage change?

It's not surprising and it won't change a thing. The more movement there is to control guns, the more up-in-arms gun owners/supporters are going to get.

I think they are good at getting their point across, but can't imagine the pain it causes to the parents who have lost children to school violence. I think we need to take a harsher look at mental illness, and make sure people are getting the assistance they need.
