Reader FiftycalTX made a comment in the How to detect dangerous “Gun Law videos” post and when I went to check again, I realized that there was something else bothering me to hell that I have missed consciously on the first run: Staged scenes.

You know what is very weird in the State of Florida? No Gun signs, specially in banks. Hell other than some Hospitals (the Memorial Hospitals franchise) Jared jewelries and Buffalo Wild Wings, I don’t think anybody bothers to paste the darn things anymore. I know my Bank of America does not.

I watched again the video and rather than concentrating on what was being said, I looked at the image. Stuff started to show up:

1- The sign is posted outside the door.
2- The bank is closed. You can se the inside barred gate.
3- No cars in the parking lot but one, probably theirs.

This was a Chase Bank. But they repeat the litany in a Bank Of America.  Again we see a No Guns sign posted at the door, ever so clear and sharp as if the glass had no effect on its sharpness or reflected the outside. Notice inside the safety gate also down indicating bank is closed.

And now the same bank in the same video from afar. Notice something missing besides cars at a bank’s parking lot during a normal business day?

How about that? The No Guns sign must have fallen. Yeah, that.

And the part that really ticks me off is something that Reader Divemedic said: the information in the video is correct.  So why in God’s name made these people stage fake scenes? They ran around town looking for GFZ signs and when they couldn’t, they decided it was easier to make stuff up?  That is the kind of boneheaded stuff that hurt us as it makes people think about us:

“Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus”
“False in one thing, false in everything.”

Basically, no matter how truthful the rest of the information provided can be, people will assume it is also a lie.  And by natural progression, people who before may had no opinion about our fight will now assume we will deceive in order to win.

Lie is what Gun Control does supported by billions of dollars. Our only currency is honesty and truth and it is damn hard to fight just with that. Making fake videos only serve to erase our small moral currency.

And the other side wins.

If your cause is righteous, why lie?

  1. It might be good to add a comment to the video pointing out it’s fake. It wasn’t obvious to me (I didn’t look at it closely since I’m not in Florida) and judging by the other comments it wasn’t obvious to other viewers either.

  2. False flag number 1- look at the guy.( I know, judgemental!!) he looks like a millennial snowflake…. guess he needs attention….. stupid.

  3. Looking at the 1st image, it looks like the sign is taped to the outside of the door ONLY AT THE TOP….. It’s flapping in the breeze. WOW.

  4. Sorry, I don’t get the problem. Isn’t this meant to be just representational, sort of a “Dramatization of Actual Events”? What does it matter if while he is talking about gun signs he makes a little background footage showing a guy walking past a sign that says “No Guns Allowed”? It’s for illustration purposes only and does not effect the content of the video at all. This is how most films are made. If he was saying “I’ve been seeing a lot of these signs lately, see, here’s one right here” and presenting it as evidence that they were getting more common in FL, it would be a lie. But just using it as a background prop doesn’t make any difference at all. What, people are going to see that and say “hey, them signs ain’t real at all! I bet there’s not such thing as No Guns Allowed Signs, that lying sack of crap” and shut the video off?

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
