EFFORT TARGETS BIDEN-HARRIS GUN GRAB SCHEME
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms announced today that next week they will continue an ambitious television advertising campaign on more than 20 cable networks, with 143 spots divided between the two gun rights organizations, alerting America to the Biden-Harris administration’s efforts to “eradicate” the Second Amendment.
“Over the past 20 weeks,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, “SAF and CCRKBA have aired more than 2,000 TV spots, making this the nation’s biggest and longest-running pro-gun-rights television campaigns ever, and the response has been overwhelming. So far, since we began, we’ve seen more than 116,000 new members and supporters joining our organizations from these TV ads, and to say we’re gratified would be an understatement.”
Gottlieb, who also chairs the Citizens Committee, said the 60-second messages will be aired on the following networks: Fox News, Fox Business, One America News Network, Newsmax, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, HLN, TrueTV, DishTV, DirecTV, Weather, Bloomberg, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel, Destination America, SYFY, History, TV Land, CMT, Great American Channel, Rural TV and America’s National Voice Channel.
“Waging this battle on two fronts, with SAF on one flank and CCRKBA on the other, is the most effective way to raise public awareness about the serious threat the Biden-Harris administration is posing to a cornerstone right enshrined in our Constitution,” Gottlieb said.
“We’ve been able to secure several million dollars’ worth of advertising so far this year, and the timing of our campaign has been critical,” he added. “People are waking up to just how far out of step Biden’s Democratic Party has become with mainstream America. Violent crime is skyrocketing. Murders are on the rise. Meanwhile, far left Democrat administrations in cities such as Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis and New York are alienating police officers and talking about defunding law enforcement. The party—with Biden in the lead—also wants to release criminals without bail and add further restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms.
“These are dangerous policies,” Gottlieb said, “and the public response is pretty clear. Gun and ammunition sales, including those to first-time gun buyers, are setting new records.
“We’re only six months into this disastrous administration,” Gottlieb said, “and it is painfully clear to us that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and their Capitol Hill cohorts want American citizens to be victimized twice, first by criminals and then by the government, through gun bans, gun confiscation and onerous regulations. In addition to radical gun legislation that has already passed in the U.S. House and is awaiting action in the Senate, there are important cases in the federal courts around the country. It’s time to stop this irresponsible folly, and that’s what our campaign is all about.”
