There are numerous proposals floating around Congress for reducing America’s gun violence epidemic, including:
Shutting down online gun sales.
Strengthening background checks.
And banning people on the terrorist watch list from purchasing firearms.
But in its latest PSA, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has introduced a solution for ending gun-related deaths that you’ve probably never considered:
Cracking down on America’s toddlers.
“Americans are shot by toddlers at least once a week,” the one-minute video notes. We need to lock them up. Not the guns — that’s just un-American. Round them up. Deport them. Get them out of our country. And keep them away from guns.”
As much as I want to applaud the Brady Campaign's inventiveness, I have to admit that I am still a little freaked out by seeing all of those kids holding guns.
But perhaps that's what we need, a little more freaking out about this.
Then perhaps somebody will start to care enough to do something to protect our kids from the amendment supposedly designed to keep us safe.
Because it's not.
