An anti-gun group thought a fake gun shop would be a great way to get their point across.
In this video released by anti-gun groups, a fake gun shop was supposedly set up in New York City. The fake store was opened to essentially shame new gun buyers.
Every gun has a story, and in this “shop” they all have alleged criminal backgrounds as well.
The “salesman” behind the counter is well versed in his wording, and is very eager to explain how each gun has significant history connected to violence or criminal use.
In conjunction with the store and video, GunsWithHistory.com was also launched as a faux online gun dealer with equally upsetting firearm descriptions.
There are plenty of positive statistics and anecdotes on the pro-gun side, but sharing those (like a real gun salesman) would be against the anti-gun initiative, wouldn’t it? Watch the video again, and make your own judgement.
