Gun control advocates feature kids playing with sex toys

posted at 3:21 pm on June 27, 2014 by Noah Rothman

While interesting 30-second web ad making the rounds on Friday may sacrifice some clarity in the pursuit of cleverness, this spot communicates an important message.

“If they find it, they’ll play with it,” the narrator in PSA entitled “Playthings,” created by the group Evolve Together. “Always lock up your guns.”

With apologies for the explicit imagery, watch the ad below:

While this ad may not be the most coherent advocacy spot ever crafted, it’s basically harmless. “Our PSA is humorous, but the message is serious,” said Evolve Together co-founder Rebecca Bond. “Parents need to take ownership of safety in the house. If you don’t want kids to play with it, put it away – it’s up to you to keep your stuff locked up.”

Not so, say gun control advocates who are fuming over the ad which treats gun owners with some respect (if patronizing and risqué premises like this can be considered respectful).

Over at The Daily Banter, Tommy Christopher has some thoughts (mild language warning):

This requires ignoring the vast differences between gun culture and dildo culture, because aside from their similarities as surrogate penises, there’s little common ground there. Dildo owners don’t bring their kids along for dildo-using trips, or dildo practice, and you’re not going to rent a dildo at a dildo range and have it jump in your kid’s hand and kill him. Most kids don’t know you have a dildo, and won’t spend every available minute alone looking for it.

Coining a new term which is soon to be mandatory when talking about gun control on MSNBC, HyperVocal’s Neda Semnani called the ad a message from a “pro-gun-responsibility group.” Because “gun safety organization” just wasn’t catching on.

“The attempt to bring lightness to a heavy topic is much appreciated, but equating a sex toy to firearm seemed more than a little bit weird,” she added

“How do you get conservatives to love a gun-safety PSA? Perhaps the secret is to add a dildo. Or two,” read the lede in an article by Abby Phillip in The Washington Post.

Phillip noted that gun rights advocates like conservative radio host Dana Loesch appreciated the ad, but everyone on her side of the issue agreed.

“An ad about sex toys is supposed to make us think about an issue as serious as proper firearm storage when kids are in the house?” wrote TownHall’s Katie Pavlich. “The ad isn’t funny. In fact, it’s immature. Instead of promoting safe storage of firearms, it does the opposite by trivializing a serious issue.”

I guess the lesson is, as is frequently the case when it comes to contentious social issues, there’s no pleasing anyone.

It was pretty funny. At the end, the groups logo buzzed a bit. The point is to treat the firearm as something of yours a child should never get into.

Treating a firearm with respect is a good idea. If those kids were playing with real weapons instead of, ahem, those instruments, the commercial might have ended quite differently.

Thanks once again to Tlaloc for his data providing us with perspective on how incredibly safe gun owners actually are:
 

1 million people in the U.S. have HIV/AIDS, and they are responsible for 8369 deaths.
 
116 million people in the U.S. have access to guns, and, as Tlaloc noted, they are responsible for 8583 deaths.
 
Can someone tell us which group is safer, please?

For the general population, gun owners pose a very minimal threat, but they do pose a serious threat to the government. HIV/AIDS narcs and homos, not so much: the infection cannot be transmitted the way our government has sex with us.

I believe the phrase you were looking for was “incoherent, emotional spew” not “some thoughts.” Not that any gun control advocates are serious people worthy of intellectual credence, but the kind that compare gun ownership as a compensation for genitalia size are particularly loathsome.

Though I guess if they brought their exposed crotch to a gun fight you’d get to laugh before you win the duel.

Katie … this has got to be the first time I have ever disagreed with you over any major issue, like “gun control”.

I don’t believe it “trivializes” the issue, at all.

It is an “immature” (obscene/vulgar) use of a ‘mature’ subject, to get a point across about another subject.

As long as the ad is targeted at adults (to whom the message is intended), I believe it works. It just shouldn’t be run on kid’s channels, after school.

But it would fit in (no pun intended) nicely with the XXX networks.

I think this constant sermonizing about locking up your weapos is about as necessary as sermonizing about leaving babies and animals in hot cars and bathtubs, and directed at largely the same group of people.

There ate people that have accidents, and there are people that are just irresponsible.

I suppose the second group are more likely to pay attion if you add “SEX” & “STUPID” in right up front. Which is probably the same reason they watch the Springer show and read T. Christopher.

FACTS TO PONDER:

A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.
(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health Human Services. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Now think about this: Guns:
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
(Yes, that’s 80 million..)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups,is 1,500.
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.
Statistics courtesy of FBI So, statistically, doctors are approximately
9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.
Remember, “Guns don’t kill people, doctors do.”
FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN,BUT
ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
In 2003 Douglas Williams a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech .
In 2010 a mentally ill Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger a disgruntled Democrat shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people in a school.

One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not.
Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives are involved.

SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns. Best idea I’ve seen. !!

Indeed! I’ve made that same point, many times in the past. If one looks at the history of mass shootings and assassinations in this country, there is only one conclusion. DimocRats should not be allowed to own or possess firearms of any kind.

They’ve become very good at projecting their heinous acts onto Conservatives (with a willing lapdog media), and then feigning outrage in order to enact their wacko leftist agendas. After all, that’s EXACTLY what Fast and Furious was all about.

What is the smallest caliber you trust to protect yourself in the wild?
A 22 short should do it……..

My personal favorite defense gun while hiking in the wilderness has always been a Beretta Jetfire in 22 short 4 shot its only 5oz’s, 7oz’s loaded . Over all the years I’ve been hiking I never leave without it in my pocket. Of course we all know too, the first rule when hiking in the wilderness is to use the “Buddy System.” For those of you who may be unfamiliar with this, it means you NEVER hike alone. You bring a friend or companion, even an in-law, that way if something happens there is someone to go get help. Everyone would laugh when I showed them my Beretta Jetfire in 22 short, when the subject came up of “what do you use for protection out here?” I would smile and nod.. I remember one time hiking with my brother-in-law in Yellow Stone. Out of nowhere came this huge charging GRIZZLY!!! and man was she mad. We must have been near one of her cubs out in this small meadow. Anyway, if I had not had my little Jetfire Both of us would have been mauled!! I’m sure I would not be here today!! But just one shot to my brother-in-law’s knee cap and I was able to escape by just walking at a brisk pace. So. Be Smart, be prepared..plan ahead..

was it clean?…had It been left out after use?…are the kids in jeopardy of contracting any STD’s??? …will they need to get a hepatitis shot?

We used used to take parts of the Hot Wheels tracks and fight but we knew better than to get my dad’s shot gun.

Of course it trivializes gun safety, but I still think the ad is firmly in the funny camp. I’m not sure i agree with its basic thrust, since the real solution to gun safety is education, hard and strong education, but its not a bad try from liberals trying to understand self-discipline, and its also very revealing in its focus on guns as something to be embarrassed about or hidden away. That tells you much about the ads creators and their own sexual uncertainties.

MTF on June 27, 2014 at 5:14 PM

I’m not an advocate (or a critic) of sex toys, and I’m skeevy about seeing little kids playing with them, but I do agree with the overall message of the ad, which seems like it’s not anti-gun-rights at all, but rather just in favor of responsible gun ownership.

bmmg39 on June 27, 2014 at 5:40 PM

Those ladies sure keep some large dildos around their house.

1sttofight on June 27, 2014 at 3:24 PM

Is there such a thing as a small dildo? And where are the triggers on those things?

HiJack on June 27, 2014 at 5:51 PM

Dildos? Those are for limp liberals. Conservative sex toys are often called “spouses.” :-)

TX-96 on June 27, 2014 at 6:22 PM

Who are the morons who allowed their young sons to be cast in an add where they got to brandish sex toys? And don’t tell me they didn’t ask what those things were.

(Then again, kids of morons like that already know all too well.)

bmmg39 on June 27, 2014 at 5:40 PM

.
Is the point of the ad, that it’s pointless?

It’s now officially a dead thread ;)

Scrumpy on June 27, 2014 at 3:53 PM

Give it a few minutes, and maybe we can get it back up again….

TX-96 on June 27, 2014 at 6:22 PM

Yep.

Nothing the left does is without an immoral purpose.

With this “ad”, they get to kill two birds with one stone.

They get to rant about guns, and they get to expose young children to more sexual imagery(the child actors and whatever children are unfortunate enough to view it) all in one ad.

And, their friends the pedophiles can get off watching two children play with sex toys. So that’s actually three birds they are killing.

They sure hate birds, don’t they.

CurtZHP on June 27, 2014 at 6:27 PM

Exactly my point. The big takeaway here is that two ACTUAL children were exposed to adult sexual paraphernalia. Children aren’t allowed in adult bookstores for a reason, and most parents DO have sense to keep their toys hidden for this very reason (and also, GROSS!! MOM AND DAD DOOOO IT!!!!). I might be overreacting a little, but, I feel like there are more than a few laws out there prohibiting adults from willfully exposing minors to sexual material/content, lest of all on film. The creators of the ad would just respond tongue in cheek, “well, it OBVIOUSLY wasn’t sexual” but…wasn’t it? And isn’t that the point?

Bee on June 28, 2014 at 6:59 AM

you’re not going to rent a dildo at a dildo range and have it jump in your kid’s hand and kill him

I think he just admitted that he thinks guns are something more than inanimate objects. The gun will jump in order to kill your child.

Although I’d guess that while these lefty women are likely skeered of big black guns,……..

dentarthurdent on June 27, 2014 at 3:42 PM

Oh, you naughty, naughty man!

most parents DO have sense to keep their toys hidden for this very reason (and also, GROSS!! MOM AND DAD DOOOO DOES IT!!!!)

FIFY (since that is normally the point of … well, you know.)

Arthur’s not exactly a spring chicken. Some of us need a few minutes after the first several times.

GWB on June 28, 2014 at 9:01 AM

Since they are equating objects, are they insinuating that should we require training and issue concealed carry permits for dildos now too?

dentarthurdent on June 27, 2014 at 4:03 PM

Ironically, the one is only concealed when not in use, the other is concealed when in use. *cough*

billofrights on June 27, 2014 at 4:53 PM

I prefer the buddy system with sex, too. Much more enjoyable than a “hike” all alone. And, no need for accessories, then. (That was a great setup, btw. *rimsh….. ummm, nvm)

(And, yes, I came to this post late.)
