    Possibly an "ANTI" so called "GUN SAFETY" Video with a White House Petition Link

    MY COMMENT: Suspicious - This looks like a "front" for a Bloomberg "ANTI" type of organization, rather than a legitimate safety group.

    Click here to sign the petition and support National Gun Safety Day: http://wh.gov/i00qA

    America is great. But it would be even greater it if had less preventable gun incidents.

    And every American can support gun safety, whether you’re a gun owner, a gun opposer, a senator, a mom, or a gun-owning senator mom who opposes her own guns. That’s why we want to make one day a year America’s official “National Gun Safety Day.”

    So help us make June 16th an official day where we promote and support ongoing efforts by safety organizations, the gun industry, retailers, communities and regular people with and without guns to create momentum for gun safety.

    Because the fewer holes we put in America, the happier we’ll all be.




    ------------------

    HERE IS THE ACTUAL PETITION:


    we petition the obama administration to:

    Create ‘National Gun Safety Day’ to Make Gun Responsibility a Part of Mainstream American Culture

    America is great. But it would be even greater it if had less preventable gun incidents.


    Every American can support personal gun responsibility and safety, whether you’re a gun owner, a gun opposer, a senator, a mom, or a gun-owning senator mom who opposes her own guns. That’s why we want to make one day a year America’s official “National Gun Safety Day.”

    So help us make June 16th an official day where we promote and support ongoing efforts by safety organizations, the gun industry, retailers, communities and regular people with and without guns to create momentum for gun safety. Because the fewer holes we put in America, the happier we’ll all be.

    I believe today was also the official announcement from Bloomy on his "news service" called "The Trace".
    So of course it is anti-gun.
    Wait. Why does need a petition? He could just pay obama to issue an Executive Proclamation.

    Whoever wrote this did a GREAT job!

    You may be right. It may be anti-gun in a nicely slicked out new suit and some real good production.

    Video is from EVOLVE - Here is their FIRST video

    Published on Feb 13, 2014
    Take action. Sign the code: Evolve USA | There's no debating the need for Gun Safety.

    Evolve believes that a third voice is needed in the gun debate. Contrary to what some think, there are important common values that resonate with both gun owners and non-gun owners alike. Safety and reduction of gun violence are of paramount importance to both. We focus on voluntary actions, taken on by individuals, to avoid gun preventable firearms deaths and gun violence.

    Evolve: The third voice in the gun debate
    Because safety is not a side







    NEW YORK, NY – February 14, 2014– Evolve, the gun responsibility organization, today launched its first ad campaign encouraging individuals to take personal responsibility for gun safety. Evolve aims to become the “third voice” in the American gun debate, a conversation that has been gridlocked for decades. Created pro bono by Saatchi & Saatchi New York, the creative work uses humor and satire to encourage responsible use and storage of guns.

    “Safety is not a side. Gun owners and non-gun owners live with guns in this country, and we should all be able to have a collaborative conversation about how to think about gun safety,” says Rebecca Bond, Co-Founder of Evolve. “Humor can be a gateway to taking away the defensiveness that is the legacy of these discussions. We hope to put this conversation on the kitchen table and start talking about it.”

    The campaign features a provocative short film directed by the highly acclaimed TV and film director Seth Gordon. It will appear in a number of places online, and portrays Thomas Jefferson and other political leaders and statesmen debating the language of the Second Amendment. After a heated debate, the group decides to remove a crucial “as long as you’re not a dumbass about it” caveat to the amendment. The video – based on the line “It’s the right to bear arms, not the right to be a dumbass” – highlights a number of outrageous examples of careless gun use.

    Evolve Co-Founder Jon Bonds adds: ” We want the ‘Dumbass’ concept to catch on in popular culture the way ‘friends don’t let friends drive drunk’ did for safe driving.”

    “When we researched the gun debate in America, we saw that it’s become almost impossible to have a thoughtful discussion about gun safety,” said Claudine Cheever, Chief Strategy Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi New York. “What I love about Evolve is that they’re not about taking a side in that debate – they’re squarely focused on promoting personal decisions about gun safety. We believe the work will make people laugh and think.”

    The call to action is for American gun owners to sign the Code of Gun Responsibility. To view the video, click here. And for more info please visit Evolve USA | There's no debating the need for Gun Safety.

    Main EVOLVE web page: Evolve USA | There's no debating the need for Gun Safety.
    There are NO NAMES, sponsors, or other indications of who is behind EVOLVE which makes me suspicious about the organization.
