Michelle Wolf mocked the NRA’s “Good Guy With a Gun” strategy in a work safety video for her Netflix show “The Break,” that imagines what would happen if a civilian with no weapons training decided to go all “Die Hard.”
The video (sarcastically) shows how “easy” it is for someone with little-to-no experience with a gun to save the day in a mass shooting situation. “All you have to do is fire your gun with goodness in your heart, and the bullets will hit only the bad guys.”
The video is mocking NRA executive VP Wayne LaPierre’s often-stated stance that “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” The argument goes that bad guys will always find a way to get firearms, so it takes a “good guy” with a gun of his own to stop them. President Donald Trump became a major proponent of this strategy after meeting with NRA reps in the wake of the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
And, in an extremely tongue-in-cheek fashion, Wolf takes the NRA’s fantasy and makes it a reality.
“Turns out it was a good idea to have that gun on you, despite what everyone had been telling you for years,” said Wolf in the video. “Now relax and enjoy compliments on how well you handled your firearm.”
The video advises how to deal with your new status as a media darling, including which interviews to do. “Hold out for Vanity Fair. Vanity Fair is a must… Be sure to practice your dance moves before going on ‘Ellen.'”
Wolf said that the most challenging moment will come when Christopher Nolan wants to do a movie based on your life, which he’ll describe as a “throwback to Italian neo-realism.” It doesn’t matter that you don’t know what that means. “Just nod along and accept a role of a lifetime,” she joked.
And when you inevitably win the Oscar for the role, bring your gun to the awards, “Just in case some s— goes down and you need to save the day… again.”
