Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen sits down with Gun Rights Activist Philip Van Cleave in a new comedy where Cohen plays an Israeli anti-terrorist expert Col. Erran Morad. Philip Van Cleave can be seen in the video agreeing to arming children as old as 13 years old to as young as 3. Van Cleave has no idea this is a comedy piece and he’s the butt of the joke and so, in turn, is the 2A community.
“They tried to stop four-year-old children from having access to guns? What is the logic that these people come up with,” Morad asks Van Cleave before recruiting the activist’s help on a “common sense training” instructional video for three-year-olds.
“Just remember to point Puppy Pistol’s mouth at the middle of the bad man,” Van Cleave says in a cartoon schoolroom setting. “Aim at the head, shoulders, not the toes, not the toes.”
With instructional video in hand, Morad then sits down with lobbyist Larry Pratt, head of the 1.5 million-member Gun Owners of America, to help pass a law allowing four-year-olds access to weapons.
“The good thing about toddlers is that they don’t really have fear of guns. This fear is given to them by the media,” Morad says. “Let’s see if we can stop these anti-gun people from getting everyone killed.”
Moral of the story. Please use a degree of common sense when on camera discussing gun rights.
