Seriously though. I'm all for gun control, but sending out a public service ad that says "Think about your rapist's safety" is a f**king ridiculous and infuriating.
On top of that, the first ad really downplays the horrific experience of being raped.
"Oh, boo hooo. You were raped. It only lasted 30 seconds."
Blood is boiling right now.

I know. I have never been sexually assaulted, and my ears were ringing from this. This is so disrespectful.

It's fake. The Brady Campaign did not create those posters.



Another BG member posted this link in another thread a couple of hours ago when this came up.

You guys...THINK before you believe everything you read.

I let others do my thinking for me. :wink: Kidding, obviously. I've honestly never seen anything about The Brady Campaign, but those things were terrible!

Yeah, they were terrible.
There is so much false information being spread around by the gun nuts these days, it is sickening. All to cause hysteria and, in turn, sell more guns.

My gun is to PREVENT rape, not to kill my rapist after the fact. The police will be more than welcome to do their job after I have defended myself.

Quoting Amαndα ♕:" Looking into it more, it is fake. But the link you posted (Stfu shirley) didn't prove it. lol I had to hunt it down. http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/1414864_Fake_Brady_Campaign_posters_.html"


I just copied the link the other person posted, out of laziness. But that link had the link you posted too, in the comments. When I first saw the rape poster, it took probably less than a minute for me to track down the information proving it fake.



Eta: It's never a bad idea, when you see something shockingly inappropriate like that, to do a little research on the source before jumping to outrage. The Brady Campaign would just never say that. I know this is a heated subject for just about everyone, but people are so quick to jump on whatever they see that helps them prove a point. Chill out and check your sources first, THEN get angry. Otherwise you waste so much energy. (Not speaking to anyone specific, just in general)

*headdesk*



No shit, it's horrible. It was designed to make people think, "OMG THAT IS HORRIBLE!" To get a reaction out of people so that they would think that the gun control people are insane. Get it? See what they did? GOTCHA! :roll:

Well lucky for the rest of us, not a single one of them has been appointed to publicly speak to the interest of gun control.

I cant speak for anyone but myself but I didnt even care that some sort of gun group.had.supposedly posted it. There are actually people who think rape is no big deal and THAT is a real problem.
