These Firearm-Toting Criminals Tell You Which States Have 'Best' Gun Laws

Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence Teams With Funny or Die to Promote Spoof Website

Anti-gun organization the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence teamed up with Funny or Die to make this campaign, spoofing review websites like TripAdvisor with a fake site called "Crimadvisor."

The idea is that criminals can go to the site to leave reviews and find out which states have the loosest gun laws, so they know where it's legal to carry one in places like "amusement parks, golf courses or beaches."

The video, featuring two gun-toting "criminals," singles out states that are good, and bad for criminals (California and New York get a firm thumbs down, for instance). Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign told The Guardian: "This thing would be really funny, if it weren't so tragically true."
