I just read the Brady Campaign is rolling out something new:
The Campaign this week is rolling out a PSA and social media push, “Speak Up,” coinciding with National Youth Violence Prevention Week, to urge students to report threats and warning signs of violence in schools. “When students speak up, they can save lives,” said Brady Campaign president Dan Gross, adding that the PSA campaign “is about something real that students can do to help make their schools and communities safer.
Basically, they are urging kids to anonymously report other kids that are carrying weapons at school and/or making credible threats of violence in the school. As long as they are talking about “kids” being under 18 and unable to legally carry weapons in school then I’m okay with this.
I do have to wonder how these sort of activities work when they are doing their fundraising activities. What sort of pitch do they give potential donors? I can just imagine, “We used to be able to influence Congress, the Senate, and the President to pass laws banning some of the most popular guns in the country. But now we want you give us money so we can try to get kids to snitch on each other.”
