Rachel Dratch stars in spoof PSA promoting gun control
With the presence of former Saturday Night Live cast member Rachel Dratch may make this “What could go wrong” PSA funny at first, it comes with an underlying serious message.
The PSA from Everytown for Gun Safety features Dratch as the busy mother heading out for what should be a relaxing meal with her family. But the light tone takes a dark turn when they suddenly feel unsafe at their restaurant of choice, surrounded by patrons drinking alcohol and sitting with prominently placed firearms at their tables.
As the PSA’s title suggests, Everytown is raising concerns over the 40 states where families with kids can be in public places where loaded guns are allowed and alcohol is served. The PSA comes not long after Texas’ open carry handgun legislation brought about its own local PSAs, which were criticized recently on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
