Ever since the Newtown massacre, gun controllists have been relentless in using children to further their agenda. Their goal, of course, is to persuade Americans that you must choose between your love of children and your love of the Constitution.
That is obviously a lie, but these people have put some big money behind ad campaigns in an attempt to make their case. This print ad, for example, was designed by the ad agency Grey, Canada.
Smaller agencies have also gotten into the act, crating ads that, as in the case of the one below, use the image of a dead child to push a political agenda. (Guts and Glory, Brooklyn).
Now it’s our turn.
We think this audience is smarter and more creative than any ad firm. So let’s harness that power and come up with some ad concepts that promote gun rights and the Second Amendment. It’s time to fight back and show Americans why protecting our freedoms is the single most important thing we can do for the health and happiness of our children.
So now it’s your turn to play ad executive. If you were going to design a print ad in support of gun rights, what would it be? What images and text would you use to capture the publics’ attention and convey your message? Fill out the form below describing your concept. If we like it, we may just have the Mercury designers and artists create a real version of your ad and then post it on some of our digital properties, like the Glenn Beck Facebook page, which has over 2.2 million fans.
Describe your idea in the form below. Please be as brief and specific as possible and read the “Questions & Answers” below before you submit.
