New NRA ad asks, ‘Do you still believe in good guys?’
Gun owners are the good guys – that’s the message the National Rifle Association is hoping television audiences will take away from a hard-hitting new ad released by the pro-gun organization this weekend.
Unveiled by Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre at the 2014 NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis, the ad asks viewers, “Do you still believe in the good guys because you are surrounded by a world where mad men are famous and good ones forgotten?”
The ad, which is narrated by three characters, shows images of cities and suburbs with an intense script and dramatic music.
NRA: Do you still belive in the good guys?
Published on Apr 27, 2014
NRA ad released at 2014 convention.
“Because you are surrounded by a world where mad men are famous and good ones forgotten, doors are locked and streets have gone silent,” the ad states.
The female narrator describes the world as a place “where filthy crimes go unpunished and killers and con-artists prey upon anyone who still follows the rules.”
The narrative and images in the ad convey the gun lobby’s message of civic duty, indicating that upholding the right to carry a handgun “takes courage” and fighting for the Second Amendment requires “a special kind of backbone to reject the world that surrounds you.”
“That’s what it means to believe in America,” a male narrator says. ”It’s time to believe in the good guys again.”
Depicting the “good guys” as soldiers, teachers, and parents who carry guns in their homes, the ad highlights its call to action towards the end: to join the “five million men and women of the National Rifle Association.”
Let me explain to YOU 5 million members of the NRAssholes what I believe in…..
I believe in a society that values human life over the idea that the second amendment was written to allow the genocide of society by scared caucasian men too stupid to realize that the second amendment was really thought of and drafted by our racist scared forefathers…..to prevent slavery uprisings on plantations. The words “well regulated militia” are code for keep the Negros on the plantations by any means necessary, force if needed.
I believe in human lives over the need for dumbass NRAsshole members to compensate for tiny genitals/too big genitalia.
I believe it’s time the citizens of The U. S. of A. comprehend that 30,000 dead humans in the United States Of AmeriKKKa are 30,000 too many.
I believe it’s time for the scared ass 113th U.S. CongrASS to grow some cojones and stand up to the NRAsshole lobbyist on Capitol Hill and remove the threat of money backed elections from OUR electoral process.
