Humanist Billboards Press Releases for 2018

Local and National Press Releases

FOR RELEASE ON May 9, 2018

Sioux Falls Humanists Would like to announce its
Anti-Gun Violence Billboard Campaign

Assault rifles are perfect weapons for killing people. That's their only purpose.

They should be banned along with all semi-automatic weapons!

Semi-automatic weapons can pump out more than 30 shots in 1/2 a minute.

You do not need semi-automatic weapons for hunting.

If you can't hit an animal with two shots you shouldn't be hunting.

In my youth a 5-shot bolt, lever, or pump action was more than adequate.

Since 1991, 272 innocent people have been shot in the worst mass shootings.

They would be alive today, but they are gone forever.

Their families will never be the same. They will grieve forever.

The US gun murder rate is 7 times more than that of any modern country.

America is the only place where you can be pro-death-penalty,
pro-guns, pro-war and still call yourself pro-life.
The Bible Belt is the Death Belt.

Seven Billboards will appear at Minnesota Ave. and 41st St. starting May 7th.
