How far can the anti-gun agenda go before it goes too far? An organization called States United to Prevent Gun Violence recently uploaded a video on YouTube where they claimed to open a fake gun store in the middle of New York City, luring in prospective gun buyers and seemingly discouraging them from purchasing firearms. Calling it a “social experiment,” the video focuses on a gun store “owner” listing off disparaging statistics to would-be patrons, whose reactions were then captured by hidden cameras. Some viewers criticized the video for it’s logic—what if car dealerships told every customer the gruesome details of non-related accidents?
Interestingly enough, the actor who plays the owner of the shop is none other than Ned Luke, who is best known for his role as the unrepentant criminal Michael De Santa in the notoriously violent Grand Theft Auto V.
Additionally, many viewers have criticized the video for displaying poor gun safety—such as the near complete lack of trigger discipline—despite avowing to “debunk safety myths.”
Can you count the number of misleading statements in this video?
