Public response to the Second Amendment Foundation’s nationwide television advertising campaign has been so positive, the organization announced it will extend and expand the campaign for another week.
SAF’s one-minute recruiting message for the “2nd Amendment First Responder” project has run 40 times on nearly a dozen networks, and during the second week, SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb says two additional venues—the Outdoor Channel and the Sportsman Channel—are being added. In all, Week Two will see the “First Responder” ad airing 79 times.
“That’s 119 times our ‘2nd Amendment First Responder’ advertisement will hit the national airwaves over the course of 14 days,” Gottlieb noted. “We’re reaching from coast to coast and deep into America’s Heartland in an effort to bring tens of thousands of grassroots gun rights activists to the front lines of a battle to protect our Second Amendment from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“Biden and Harris have been alarmingly clear about their gun control and confiscation plans,” he continued. “Biden wants to regulate and tax popular firearms and their magazines under the National Firearms Act, or mandate they be turned in through a so-called ‘gun buyback’ program that amounts to compensated confiscation. Our campaign is alerting the nation about the extremist Biden-Harris agenda.
“Their radical wish list includes one-gun-a-month restrictions, a semi-auto ban, magazine limits, mandatory licensing in order to purchase a firearm, prohibitive gun taxes, and invasive background checks and indeterminate waiting periods, just to exercise a right that is supposed to be protected from such demagoguery by the Second Amendment,” Gottlieb observed. “Biden and Harris want to turn a fundamental right into a regulated privilege, and our ‘2nd Amendment First Responder’ campaign fights that scheme.”
The advertisement will again appear on DirecTV, Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, MSNBC, The Weather Channel, One America News Network, CNBC, HLN, Bloomberg and Dish TV, plus the Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.
