Op-Ed: “Woke” Ohio Mayor’s Gun Policy Criticized by Local Firearms Store Owner

A commercial from ADCO Firearms in Sylvania, Ohio, (a Toledo suburb) criticized the city’s policy to only buy from “responsible” firearms manufacturers.

ADCO Firearms’ 30-second commercial from November 2019 was initially set in October 2018 and features a man asking a woman what she’s watching on her tablet. She replies, “The mayor just gave a speech about the new requirements for who the city has to buy their guns from. The vendors have to answer questions about making and selling assault weapons for civilians.”

“He’s so woke,” replies the man, referring to Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz.

The scene then jumps forward one year and the same man and woman are sitting outside. Once again reading her tablet, she informs the man that the Toledo Police Department chose to arm its academy with SIG Sauer pistols.

The man replies that SIG Sauer sells popular semi-auto rifles to anybody, which he calls “assault weapons,” while making air quotes. She replies, “It’s epic hypocrisy.”
