Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland Accidentally Shot in Brady Campaign PSAs

In an attempt to perhaps broaden the appeal of firearms, the National Rifle Association via its NRA Family website is reimagining fairy tales, where the details of the stories are amended to include guns.

So far, or example, NRA Family has recently published “Little Red Riding Hood (Has A Gun)” and “Hansel and Gretel (Have Guns).” To give you a feel for how they’ve revamped these classic tales, here is an excerpt from the “Little Red Riding Hood (Has a Gun)” story:

The wolf leaned in, jaws open wide, then stopped suddenly. Those big ears heard the unmistakable sound of a shotgun’s safety being clicked off. Those big eyes looked down and saw that grandma had a scattergun aimed right at him. He realized that Grandmother hadn’t been backing away from him; she had been moving towards her shotgun to protect herself and her home.

Well, it didn’t take long for anti-gunners to fire back., a student group of the Brady Campaign, created several videos that depict various fairy tale characters being accidentally killed by handguns.

In the Brady versions, Alice in Wonderland accidentally shoots herself and Peter Pan is shot, accidentally, after flying into the home of the Darling children.

Each PSA includes a voiceover, saying, “Over one-third of all American households have a gun. Ask your neighbor: Is there a gun where they play? Asking saves kids.”

So, what are your thoughts of the NRA’s reimagined stories? And, what do you think of the Brady Campaign’s response?

    I agree with some of the other posts here. The fairy tales with guns is a silly PSA and in my opinion, a confusing context. It starts an obvious and inevitable contest of PSAs with anti-gunner organizations who already take an outlandish concept and spin it into false narrative and untrue assertions. It’s not a road of making people aware that needs to be travelled.

    I am a life member of the NRA but I don’t agree with all the of the things they say and do maybe if ther would use a little more common sense in sum ways like who really needs an assault rifle to hunt with no one then just maybe the antis would leave us law bidding gun owners alone

      Amazing you are pushing your own anti gun trolling on here, unless you have paid the tax and gone through the background check for a class 3 weapon nobody in the general public owns an assault weapon. As far as hunting with what you think is an assault weapon I use an AR-15 for coyote and other small game, I use a semiauto M-14 for deer and bear hunting . The 2A was written for the civilian population to have a defense against a tyrannical government . The phrase “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” was not written to regulate firearms it was written to protect the people from the government regulating firearms. If you do not like it or do not agree with it you are living in the wrong country.

      I’ve owned numerous semi-auto high capacity rifles. I don’t hunt. I have them because I enjoy them. I enjoy their feel, quality and craftsmanship, and history. It also doesn’t hurt that as a believer in 2A, many styles of these rifles keeps government on their better behavior.

    Not knowing what age group the NRA was targeting bothers me. Old cartoons showed fairytale characters with guns(I remember 1 or 2), but they arre not shown anymore. While 4 year olds might get confused over alternate endings(they like the same thing, over and over, the tried and true), a child of 8 and older would pick up the idea that a gun could have made grandma’s life longer.
    Many educaters do not like parodies because they can confuse young children. With all the info coming in from everywhere, kids of 2 and 3 know that guns are dangerous and we need to be on top of safety here. Taking a 2 or 3 year old shooting is a little young, but being firm about guns like you would be about them putting thier little monkey fingers into a blender is important.
    I guns are shown as tools and not toys to the before 2nd grade set, I know they will see the NRA stories as a good thing – and also see that the craziness that the Brady bunch of Wash DC is showing them. Sadly, many kids are raised in households that are less than perfect. Mom works all the time, grandma or auntie or big sis watches them and there is no real gun discussion in the home, so they are ripe for the propaganda of the gungrabbers and schoolteachers adhere to.
    As I stated in another thread, schools and school administration are scared of lawsuits. Teaching gun safety or anything good about guns could turn and bite them in the butt, even unjustly.
    As gun owners and users, we need to show everyone we know how and why we have them. Get a single mom to go shooting with your family. Show her that your children know the safety rules and that she is a more likely victim being a single mother than you are. Address safe storage and where she could put the weapon safely in a place she can have it in seconds, but the kids can not. Help her to show her children gun safety. This is a one on one chore that you should pick up, for the good of our country.

    … seeing that the government never wins the “war on drugs” & the gangs use of violence with innocent bystanders caught in the cross fire, I’m sure that the ATF in it’s wisdom decided to send guns across the border the help promote the violence to use it against honest gun owners in general for the NWO agenda that the leftists love so well…

    i find this line of anti freedom gun grabbers videos disgusting. killing little kids dreams is just so wrong.
    instead they need to treat finding a gun as the nra does. DO not touch, Get a grown up.

    not trying to promote the nra, just kids will be kids and will find a gun. so better to teach them the correct way to handling them.

    after all it’s for the children.

    I find the “I am an NRA member and I support gun grabbers” fake! The NRA is supported by all gun gun owners I know and meet, any gun grabber can claim to be a gun owner when in reality they are not gun owners, they want to sway the uninformed public by using false claims and scare tactics. Pretty pathetic.

    After watching and reading this I have cancelled my NRA Membership. Enough of this retarded embarrassing B.S.

  • John Klumpp May 2, 2016, 11:57 am

    Owning a gun of any caliber demands that the gun owner be responsible for it’s safe usage and storage ( keeping it safely locked away from kids, unless properly supervised by responsible adults.) This include b.b,pellet, or even airsoft. When I received my first bb gun my dad stressed the 10 commandments of gun saftey, and most importantly to never point the gun at anything you did not intend to shoot, and if you do shoot, you shoot to kill not to wound, beacuse it is just not right to wound an animal only to let it go off and to die only for the sake of shooting and killing it. If you are not going to consume it let it live.

    I am a gun owner and a hunter. I believe in the Second Amendment. I also believe that the NRA is a disgrace to the values of any responsible gun owning American. Anyone intelligent and responsible enough to own and use a firearm ought to understand a gun’s tremendous potential when used incorrectly. Not everyone should have the right to purchase and own a gun. It is morally reprehensible for the NRA to lobby against common sense and spread paranoid among the population at the cost of thousands of lost and shattered lives annually.

    After watching both of these it would seem like talk about guns to kids would save kids more than asking about guns would save kids.
