Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s newest anti-gun initiative Everytown For Gun Safety was recently parodied in a public service announcement that was designed to look like it was created by a person with very little understanding of how firearms operate.
Pro-2nd Amendment groups who set up a spoof Facebook page resembling Bloomberg’s effort fooled the Internet with this ad:
The Blaze explains:
A spokesperson for the gun control group Demand Action told TheBlaze the Facebook page and image belongs to “cybersquatters,” not Bloomberg’s group.
The Facebook page that uploaded the photo joined the social network on April 17. The group recently said it was working to secure a new Facebook group page after a pro-gun group swooped in and used the group’s name to promote the Second Amendment. …
The spoof ad was so convincing because it usually is true that the folks most interested in banning firearms know nothing about them. After all, we all remember California Senator Kevin deLeon’s (D) deadly ghost gun.
Nonetheless, we would like some of our more graphically savvy readers to take a crack at re-imagining the parody ad using a photo editing program like Photoshop, Paint, Gimp, or whatever you may have at your disposal.

Here’s an amateurish example of how one might redesign the flyer (language warning):
