--The one that shows a child taking a handgun from his mother's dresser and bringing it to school so his teacher can "take it away?" Even the State of California Department of Justice (Kamala D. Harris, Attorney General) "Tips for Gun Owners" page clearly addresses the basic notion, showing it to be dangerous and a violation of state law. (Yes, California has "safe storage" laws, with the express intent of preventing minors from having unsupervised access to firearms. Agree or not, there they are).
...And the page's "Rules For Kids" section is straight from NRA's
"Eddie Eagle" gun safety program: Stop! Don't touch! Leave the area.
Tell an adult. AG Kamala Harris and the NRA, at nearly opposite
ends of the political spectrum, agree word-for-word on what a child should do when encountering an unsecured firearm -- and it isn't "take it to school and give it to your teacher."
I found that out with a fifteen-second web search. The production company could have done the same but instead produced a message so inept that even many anti-gun people are crying foul or "false flag," and just this once, I don't blame them. Oh, it's fun when one's opponents make mistakes, but this was so over-the top that it's almost sad -- or, if applied in the real world, tragic.
(The video has been made "private" on YouTube, but the producer's web-page still has a Vimeo version, which shows up in search engines if you search on her name.)
