The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has introduced a new video featuring a woman who puts a gun in her mouth as it seeks to disclose in which states guns can be purchased easily to encourage supporters to fight gun laws in those jurisdictions.
The video promotes a new Brady website named "Crimadvisor.com," The Daily Caller
reports. It features a young man and woman sporting leather gear and tattoos — talking in brash urban tones akin to hip-hop.
"Before now, it's been difficult for criminals like us to know which states have loose gun laws," the woman says. "How would a criminal like me know which states permit me to carry loaded guns in their amusement parks, golf courses, or beaches?"
Story continues below video.
"I have some violent friends," the man adds. "We all wear leather jackets and scream at women — and we want to find which states we can buy and sell guns easily."
After describing California as a state where "the market is hungry, hungry for guns," the woman puts the weapon in her mouth.
Crimadvisor.com lists the nation's 10 most dangerous states — defined by the Brady Campaign as where guns can be easily obtained.
They are Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Arkansas, Kentucky, Nevada, Maine, Mississippi, Idaho and New Mexico.
The site also lists the 10 states with the strictest gun laws: California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Hawaii, Maryland, Rhode Island, Delaware, and Illinois.
In the video, the man describes the latter states as those "where we're not so welcome. The ones that don't 'get us.' "
The pair end the video by saying: "Crimadvisor.com. Plan your perfect getaway."
In its report, however, the Daily Caller notes that the Brady Campaign's gun-ownership data is from 2007 and compares the top-10 lists with the actual numbers of gun-related deaths, based on FBI data.
With the safest states, for instance, a total of 2,953 gun deaths occurred in 2010. That compared with a total of only 539 in the most dangerous states.
The Daily Caller also noted that the Brady lists exclude Washington, D.C., with an ownership rate of 3.8 percent — and the nation's highest rate of gun deaths, at 6.5 per 100,000 residents.
That compared with Wyoming, which has a death rate of 0.9 per 100,000 residents — even though 59.7 percent of the Cowboy State's citizens own guns.
Both Washington and Wyoming have about 600,000 residents, the Daily Caller reports. The Brady Campaign is based in D.C.
