Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group Everytown for Gun Safety recently released a pro-gun control ad depicting an abusive ex breaking into a woman’s home and eventually shooting her. The ad was created in support of creating new gun restrictions to prevent domestic abusers from purchasing firearms.
On Wednesday, a pro-gun grassroots group, Liberty Pennsylvania, released a parody response showing what might happen in the same exact situation if the victim was “armed and ready to take action to defend herself and her family.”
In the parody video, the armed ex-boyfriend is seen trying to break into a woman’s house. She calls 911 and reveals that she is in the house alone with her young son. The dispatcher then tells the woman that the police will be there in 5 to 10 minutes.
When the furious ex finally breaks through the door, his so-called victim is holding a shotgun. The man screams like a girl, apologizes and drops his gun at the sight of the armed woman.
Everytown’s ad is titled, “Will You Stop This?” and comes with the following warning, “This video depicts scenes of domestic violence.”
Liberty PA’s video is titled, “I Will Stop This” and has its own warning: “This video contains scenes of self defense.”
