OWENS: NBA Vows to Push Gun Control On Fans

Gun ownership has hit record highs in the United States at the precise moment that per-capita firearms homicides are the lowest they’ve ever been in recorded history.

What a brilliant time for the National Basketball Association to stick it to their fan base by jumping on board for a gun control campaign with Michael Bloomberg’s often-discredited Everytown for Gun Safety.

The National Basketball Association, alarmed by the death toll from shootings across the country, is stepping directly into the polarizing debate over guns, regulation and the Second Amendment with an unusual advertising campaign in partnership with one of the nation’s most aggressive advocates of stricter limits on firearm sales.

In a move with little precedent in professional sports, the N.B.A. is putting the weight of its multibillion-dollar brand and the prestige of its star athletes behind a series of television commercials calling for an end to gun violence.
