Sleeper 13 Productions PSA Urges Kids to Steal Parents’ Guns, because #gunviolence

A really, really bad idea.

A really, really bad idea.

A public service announcement produced by a San Francisco company and posted on YouTube encourages children to steal their parents’ guns and turn them in at school.

The PSA, titled “Stop Gun Violence,” was created by Rejina Sincic for Sleeper 13 Productions, a “collaborative production company.”

The video shows a young teenage boy taking a semiautomatic handgun from a drawer in his mother’s bedroom before bringing it to school and laying it on his teacher’s desk after class.

“Can you take this away? I don’t feel safe with a gun in my house,” the boy asks.

“Our children deserve a safe world,” the video says. “Stop gun violence now.”

The popular conservative site Daily Caller was quick to point out that in real life, “the boy would be guilty of weapons theft, illegal concealed carry and carrying a weapon on school property.”

As of Tuesday afternoon, the video had received more than 320,000 YouTube views. Tellingly, only 147 viewers “liked” the PSA, while more than 18,000 rated it “thumbs down.”

On Facebook, the video, which has received only nine “likes,” drew a firestorm of comments.

“Weapons theft, unlawful possession of a weapon by a minor, illegal concealed carry of a weapon, carrying a weapon onto school property, assault, and brandishing,” wrote Jerry Harlan.

“So, when a child does this and accidentally kills himself or an innocent bystander, will Sleeper 13 Productions and Regina Sincic be brought up on charges as an accessory?” asked Fred Rick Friedman. “This has got to be one of the dumbest PSAs put out by anti-gunners ever. Way to combat criminal violence… turn innocent children into felons.”

“Bunch of San Francisco Pelosi supporters. Take them swimming in the bay and let the Sharks have lunch,” quipped Ron Bernstein in an apparent reference to the carnivorous fish inhabiting the waters off California’s coast, not the San Jose NHL team.

Undaunted, Sincic took to Twitter to encourage others to share her provocative PSA.

“Lot of people are afraid to share my PSA! If you are not a coward please share… #gunviolence,” she tweeted.

    I didn’t look at the video, because of this article somewhat explains what it is.

    But too be sure, I learned a ‘hard lesson’ very early on about stealing a few coins off of dad’s dresser.

    I’m not sure, but is the PSA supporting theft as a means to their agenda?…could get severe discipline, not to mention normal family trust will be shattered. I think if ‘dad’ wants to turn in his hogleg, ‘dad’ is the one to do it for himself. And why bring the school into it? If a kid is so determined to remove any firearms from the home, why not call the police, invite them to the house when ‘dad’ is present or not & attempt to give the gun to the cops at that time. The police are much better prepared for such an occurrence than the local school teacher. I think most kids are smart enough to figure that out, there is a time & a place for everything.

    I knew a family and their ‘dumb son’ decided one day to take a gun to school, long story short, there was lawyers & stress & embarrassment & jail & bail & expulsion & permanent ‘police & school record’…which does not simply linger over night…some things are not quickly forgiven, nor repaired, months later the parents were still ‘dealing with it’, and so was the rest of the family. Perhaps the PSA is aimed at students that have already refused the desire to go to college or get a job?

      It is urging kids to take guns from their parents, bring them to school and turn them in to their teachers. So many crimes here…
