NYC Gun Store 'Sells' Weapons Used In Mass Killings And Accidental Shootings

States United To Prevent Gun Violence opens a "gun store" in NYC as hidden camera social experiment to debunk safety myths.

This hard-hitting ad will surely enrage the gun fetishists everywhere, probably even more so than their previous efforts, including "Ed". As they put it, "Every gun has a history.

Unassuming shoppers on the Lower East Side of Manhattan came across this "gun store" aimed at first-time weapon buyers. Those who walked in were treated to the shocking history of the shop's wares: among them, a revolver a five-year-old boy used to shoot his 9-month old brother, a 9 mm semi-automatic that a two-year-old shot and killed his mom with at a Walmart and the same kind of gun one young shooter used during the tragedy at Sandy Hook.

The video, created out of Grey, New York, is the agency's latest effort for States United Against Gun Violence and is accompanied by a website, Guns With History, showing the stories behind various models.
