Bloomberg is going to bombard the airwaves of America’s superbowl with anti gun ads and commercials. He’s reportedly spending millions of dollars to take on guns during the show, with provacative gun control ads.
Bloomberg has already spent millions of dollars over the last two decades proposing gun control across America. Gun control could be one of his biggest planks of his platform.
The ad will be 1 minute long, and feature the mother of a victim of a Texas shooting. Her name is Calandrian Simpson Kemp , and her son was shot and killed in 2013.
“When I heard Mike was stepping into the ring I thought, ‘Now we have a dog in the fight,'” she says. “Mike’s fighting for every child because you have a right to live. No one has a right to take your hopes and dreams.”
The ad is a hallmark of the Bloomberg campaign.
Bloomberg said in the statement that Kemp’s “story is a powerful reminder of the urgency of this issue and the failure of Washington to address it.”
“People will be rooting for different teams in the Super Bowl, but virtually all Americans — including people in both parties and a majority of gun owners — support universal background checks and other common sense gun laws.” Said Bloomberg.
President Trump is also going to release ads during the superbowl, and has dropped one of the two planned ads his campaign has put together.
The message touts his performance as President.
