These multimillionaires who don't live in a gated community or don't have armed body guards. They live in a fantasy world. We don't.

6. As much as I agree with the sentiment

the reality is that many of these people need bodyguards, they live in the public eye and, kinda like the president, are the target of scary people far more often than us folk.

7. They can demonstrate their sincerity by giving up any armed security they might have...

..and thus show that they are willing to share the same risks as 'us folk'.

3. I like the comercial, but

I can't help to think that bringing our troops home will end a lot of American gun violence. We are a very violent people.

4. Houses of Worship

I'd like to have seen them include "No more houses of worship."

But, a well-done and emphatic message.

8. Wow. I am amazed by the response to this. I really LIKE the ad and its message.

I am happy to see public people out there talking about the issue and lending support to the notion that we, as a nation, NEED to be talking about gun violence and how to stop it. I actually want to THANK these guys for taking time and energy to do the ad.
