School ‘Gun Violence’ PSA Overlooks the Most Obvious Warning Sign
“Do you see the chilling warning signs in this PSA about gun violence?” The Washington Post asks in a headline to a “report” posted as “news” rather than as free advertising for gun-grab group Sandy Hook Promise’s latest video. The slick propaganda piece relies on sleight of mind, keeping viewers’ attention focused on an unfolding “love story” in the foreground while a classmate plans out and ultimately initiates a “school shooting.”
The first “warning sign” is perhaps the most implausible – openly reading a gun magazine in a public school library, as if that wouldn’t trigger a hysterical administrative overreaction followed with, at minimum, suspension and a mandated psych evaluation. The rest of the “signs,” from posting an ominous photo and message on social media, to being bullied, to making overt shooting gestures in class, hit on all the clichés. Ultimately, the message viewers are advised to walk away with:
Know the signs.
That in itself is not a bad idea. It would be wrong to maintain such warning signs don’t exist. It goes without saying timely interventions might help make different outcomes. Still, it leaves the most important and relevant sign — the one that all but assures a killer’s “success” — completely ignored:
“Gun violence is preventable when you know the signs,” Sandy Hook Promise assures us. Not all is. Not as long as “progressive” policies in addition to a citizen disarmament agenda are still in play. Not as long as the biggest bullies public schoolchildren generally face are activist teachers and administrators forcing an agenda on them. Not as long as a significant number of boys are drugged for being boys. And not as long as the one thing that will protect children from predators is ridiculed and prohibited. Especially since the only thing that will stop the killer in the PSA will be when armed men show up.
What’s unknown: How much did globalist ad agency BBDO spend on the “PSA” and where did the money come from? Such things don’t come cheap. It’s a hallmark of well-funded Astroturf gun-grabber groups that compensate for lack of grassroots support with donations from the elites. And even with that advantage, and the advantage of tons of free publicity masked as news, they still rely on manipulation and deception.
The other unknowns: Where was this filmed? At what school? Knowing that could allow for a freedom of information request to determine who pulled the permits and who gave permission for a prop firearm to be brought on the premises. I bring that up because in the past, gun-grabbing PSAs have been known in their ignorance and hubris break the law.
The “PSA” follows. Not suprisingly (as a matter of fact, expectedly), YouTube comments and the ability to “dislike” the video have been disabled:

UPDATE: It looks like the video was plagiarism:
Created screenshots to show the comparisons of my original viral short film The Desk and the copy of my story in an ad that was made by Sandy Hook Promise and BBDO Worldwide that they copied from my original story I wrote from my personal life experience in school. Help share and expose what they have done illegally like many others have to small filmmakers like me.
