Gun Violence PSA - What Does it Encourage?

Here is a recently produced Public Service Announcement about guns:

So what does it teach the kiddos?  Let's recap:

  • If you find a gun, pick it up
  • Steal it, if it is not yours
  • Never check to see if it is loaded, and certainly via your handling don't assume it is loaded
  • By all means, take your gun to school
  • Whip out your gun in front of an adult
Now compare those lessons against the lessons delivered by Eddie the Eagle; the NRA's mascot for gun safety:

Who is responsible here, and who is not?  Forget that - let's call a spade a spade here - who is right here and who is wrong?  

And after answering that, ask yourself: who is treated like a villain, and who is treated as a hero?

Please feel free to include any thoughts you may have. Know, however, that kiddos might be reading this, so please keep the adult language to yourself. I know, for me to ask that language is clean is a stretch...
