Stop the madness fails at stopping the madness

We’re all for advertising that will help curb gun violence, and especially anything that’ll dissuade the ridiculous idea that more guns in schools will help make us safer. However we don’t think these new spots from #VoteEmOut titled “Stop the Madness” will do the trick.

They’re highly conceptual and well produced, but the scenarios are so out there, they’re easy to dismiss as unrealistic scenarios with no basis in real gun control debate. Would teachers really draw weapons over a muffin? Would a sharp shooter who can’t teach math be a math teacher? No. And unfortunately, these exaggerations make the important message miss the mark.
