NRA’s Own Words To Be Used Against It In Super Bowl Ad

Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the brainchild of NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, is running the ad:

The New York Times reported on Saturday that the ad, which will air in the Washington, D.C. area during the Super Bowl on Sunday, will feature NRA chief executive officer Wayne LaPierre testifying in support of universal background checks before a Senate committee in May 1999.

“We think it’s reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show,” LaPierre said in the testimony featured in the ad. “No loopholes anywhere, for anyone.”

The testimony is preceded, then followed, by images of children as “America The Beautiful” plays in the background.
