The gun safety group funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will air a dramatic television ad in three key states and Washington, D.C., on Tuesday to pressure key Republican senators to support new gun restrictions for domestic abusers, reports the Huffington Post.
The 30-second ad by Everytown for Gun Safety features a man trying to break into his ex-wife's house with a gun as she frantically calls the police. The man kicks the door in, grabs the woman's crying baby and points the gun at the woman's head. The gunshot can be heard as the video cuts out and directs viewers to text a number for information about stopping violence against women.
The ads running in the three states will ask viewers to urge their respective senators to back Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) bill that would ban convicted stalkers and abusive dating partners from possessing guns.
