Lawnewz reports that anti-gun advocates have recently released a controversial ad called ‘Toddlers Kill’ to promote gun control.

The Brady Campaign’s ad starts with news reports about accidental shootings by children who chanced upon unattended firearm. This is followed by statistics that claim Americans are shot by toddlers ‘at least once a week’.

The narrator says “We need to lock them up, not the guns. That’s just un-American.”

The video flashes pictures of children holding guns and suggests kids be placed behind bars, or deported. The narrator continues, “Guns don’t kill people; toddlers kill people.”

Although it is clear the ad was aimed at absurdly pointing out gun crimes in the country, the National Rifle Association called it “offensive” and stated that the Brady Campaign was sensationalizing tragedy to push their own gun control agenda.

NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker said the Campaign “would be spending their resources on safety and training” if they were “truly concerned about safety.”

According to a report by NPR in 2013, statistics showed that although the amount of gun crimes in the US are high with 3.55 deaths out of 100,000 people, gun crimes in Thailand are twice the amount with an accounted 7.48 violent gun deaths out of 100,000 people. The data also showed that Thailand had the highest gun death rate in Asia that year.
