SICK: PSA Encourages Kids To Steal Parents’ Guns, Turn In To Teachers

A disgusting public service announcement released on December 13 by a San Francisco-based production company that encourages children to put themselves at risk and commit a slew of crimes by stealing their parents’ guns from home and turning them in at school has been making its rounds on YouTube.

The PSA received condemnation from gun rights advocates nationwide last week after the blog site first drew attention to it. Soon thereafter,, The and even the Washington Times gave the video an even wider platform for criticism.

The video can be viewed here:

According to the Washington Times, the ad’s director, Rejina Sincic tweeted “Lot of people are afraid to share my PSA! If you are not a coward please share #gunviolence.”

The Times goes on to note that the video has been met with sharp criticism from gun-rights activists on the Facebook page of the production company, Sleeper 13. From the article:

Fred Rick Friedman questioned on Facebook: “So, when a child does this and accidentally kills himself or an innocent bystander, will Sleeper 13 Productions and Ragina Sincic be brought up on charges as an accessory? This has got to be one of the dumbest PSA’s put out by anti-gunners ever. Way to combat criminal violence…turn innocent children into felons.”

According to the credits, the video was shot at North Oakland Community Charter School in Oakland. The school’s executive director, Carolyn Gramstorff, told The Washington Times that officials did grant permission for the PSA to be shot there, but were not aware beforehand of its message. In light of the controversial video, she said the school is motivated to consider narrowing its screening process for allowing PSAs to be shot on campus.

Not long ago, a similarly misguided anti-gun PSA backfired on billionaire bully Michael Bloomberg's $50 million astroturf gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, depicting a woman calling 911 as her ex-husband kicks in the door, grabs her child and puts a gun to her head. While the gun ban extremists had hoped it would propmt viewers to come away with the idea that everything would have turned out ok if only the bad guy didn't have a gun. Instead, viewers - even the anti-gun hosts of ABC's The View - founds themselves wishing that the mother in the commercial DID have a gun.
