Kidnap my kid and I’ll blow up your face.

I don’t know from experience thankfully, but I imagine this pretty accurately gets at how moms (and the rest of us) feel when our kids are attacked…

(BTW, this video wouldn’t pass the Bechdel test, but there ought to be a fourth criteria: Are there only women in the movie and are they all shooting automatic weapons?

Cuz, if so, I think that would qualify as A Female Presence.)

    …and that’s what’s ridiculous about the Bechdel test

    Unless they want to make the argument that guns are sexist paternalistic machines that hold women down…along with the children that they supposedly are wanting to protect.

    i just visited their site. it’s nice to be able to find out if there is a child predator in your neighborhood, but i think it could be used better in combination with guns as far as family protection goes. ;)

    hilarious commercial though. :)

      I’m frustrated by this video for that reason. Those stats make it look like there are 260,000 (or whatever the number was) stranger abductions a year. And definitely that would be something to be afraid of. But in reality, most of those are family abductions.

      The actual stats are something like 115 stranger abductions per year. Still truly horrifying for those 115 families, yes, but definitely not cause to lock our children in the house for fear of every stranger walking past.

      Stats from http://freerangekids.wordpress.com and http://www.pollyklaas.org/media/pdf/NISMARTIIhighlights.pdf

    Now, I’m hardly an expert, but I’m pretty sure most of them are demonstrating incorrect gun use. #completelymissingthepoint
