jim childs: one of the ways criminals avoid background checks is by going online and connecting with strangers to buy guns. as someone in law
enforcement, i think that's dangerous. millions of guns are sold through websites like this, most with no background checks, no questions asked. the law requires background checks in gun stores; why don't we require them online? that's a threat to all of us. narrator vo: yes on question 1 i've seen what can happen as the resulult of hate. my son matt was murdered in laramie, wyoming, in 1998. he was befriended by two men in a bar who pretended to be gay. they offered him a ride home, and when he was in their car, they robbed him and beat him. they drove matt out to the prairie
ead. in the aftermath of matt's death, my family saw the best of america in the love and support we were shown. so when
i see the hate that donald trump has brought to his campaign for president, it terrifies me. i'd like to punch him in the face, i'll tell ya. ahh, i don't know what i said, uhh, i don't remember. he's a mexican. i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody, and i wouldn't... words have an influence. violence causes pain. hate can rip us apart. ate, and donald trump should never be our president. priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. priorities usa action it's hard to make the past dissappear,
