There are certain groups of people who support gun control for very logical reasons.
Criminals are obviously big fans of gun control because they prefer unarmed victims.
Dictators also are big supporters of gun control because they want unarmed subjects.
Other segments of the population like gun control for inexplicable ideological reasons.
International bureaucrats advocate for gun control because they apparently think government should be daddy and citizens should be children.
Foreign politicians impose gun control because…well, I’m not sure why, but probably because they’re weenies.
And some American politicians want gun control because it appears they viscerally oppose individual freedom.
But I’m at a loss to understand why other segments of the population are on the wrong side of the gun issue. Why, for instance, does the National Football League have a policy prohibiting this very simple and innocuous ad from airing during the Super Bowl?
You may be thinking that the NFL simply doesn’t want to get involved in a controversial issue. And I wouldn’t be upset if that was the motivating factor.
But don’t forget that they allowed these two political clowns to appear in this ad during last year’s Super Bowl.
In other words, it’s okay for a couple of hack politicians to peddle anti-Second Amendment nonsense, but the NFL is barring a company from airing an ad designed to sell a legal product.
