Veterans for Gun Reform: It was my duty to finally speak out in a way that would reach a lot of people
The story of how and why this ad was made is told here.
“I carried an M4 in the military. It was a very scary thing to see just how efficient and powerful and dangerous it was. It was developed for one reason – to be a weapon of war made for creating carnage and doing so in a way that you don’t have to stop to reload.”
“There was this void of a veteran voice in this issue. I think there’s the victims, there’s the pro-gun people, there’s all the lobbyists. There hadn’t been a voice from people who know this weapon first-hand, professionally.”
Veterans speaking out:
“I felt it was my duty to finally speak out and speak out in a way that would reach a lot of people. It’s not something that we want for sale in this country. It’s not something we want to see used in another mass shooting.”
