An odd group calling itself “Sleeper 13 Productions” has released a three-minute public service announcement that has been panned by both 2nd Amendment supporters and their opposition as grossly irresponsible.
Within the PSA, a teenaged boy is seen sneaking into his parent’s bedroom and taking a semi-automatic handgun out of a dresser drawer.
The boy then takes the firearm, stuffs it into his backpack, then goes through a full-day of school with the weapon in his possession.
At what appears to be the close of the school day, the child plops the firearm on a shocked teacher’s desk and asks her, “Can you take this? I don’t feel safe with it at home.”
In the real world, that’s when a burly resource officer tackles the boy, tazes him while a swat teams screams to the school.
In the world of some gun-control advocates, they see the act as endearing.
The video, which has been viewed nearly 185,000 times at the time of this writing, thankfully has nearly 10,000 “thumbs down” and nearly 4,000 comments that sway strongly negative.
While released as a “Sleeper 13 Production” the controversial PSA appears to be the work of one individual, Rejina Sincic, from San Francisco.
Rejina, posted on her Twitter account, “Lot of people are afraid to share my PSA! If you are not a coward, please share.”
While the revelation will undoubtedly come as no surprise, Rejina Sincic, cheered the reelection of President Obama by tweeting, “4 more years!!!! #Obama” on November 6, 2012.
