    Bloomberg and his anti gun pals are running a commercial during the super bowl. Here is the story:



    A gun control group founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is airing an advertisement during the Super Bowl calling for background checks.

    The 30-second spot by Mayors Against Illegal Guns will air in the Washington area during the third quarter of the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

    The ad calls on lawmakers to pass rules requiring background checks on guns. It is narrated by children, with "America the Beautiful" playing in the background.

    It includes decades-old footage of National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre saying the gun lobby group approves of the checks. LaPierre recently testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that the NRA no longer supports background checks for all gun sales.

    A Bloomsberg spokesman would say only that the ad cost in the six-figure range.

    Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a coalition of more than 800 mayors from 44 states.


    Why can't the NRA put our a commercial of their own? This would be a great time to do that. It could really help our cause.

    I wish the NRA would do more mainstream advertising; maybe the networks won't sell them any time....?

    Considering how much bias you see on every major network and talk show, they would probably do anything to make sure the NRA doesn't get a slot.

    The NRA can't get network air time but they need to produce short, concise messages that can be spread on social media. Would likely reach more people and be more effective for less money.
