The NBA has sold out to Michael Bloomberg and his front groups, Everytown for Gun Safety.
As you sit down to relax and enjoy your day off and spend time with your family on Christmas Day the NBA will be feeding you a turkey stuffed with series of Anti-gun ads disguised as public service announcements. During basketball games being aired on Christmas Day, TV ads featuring NBA players such as Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. The ads will also feature the relatives of those who died of gun violence such as Andy Parker. His daughter, Allison Parker, was the TV reporter from Virginia shot and killed on live TV this past August along with a cameraman by a former colleague.
The ad is part of a campaign for the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, the front group arm organization founded by Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, which lobbies to take guns away from US Citizens.
This PSA is specifically created with the intention of raising awareness, however, not to lobby for tighter gun-control laws.
The partnership between the NBA and Bloomberg was put together by filmmaker and gun control advocate Spike Lee. Lee, has been vocal in blaming the NRA for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting and slamming the United States of America for being “the most violent country in the history of civilization.”
