Aurora Shooting Survivor In New Anti-Gun Violence Ad

October 1, 2012
Timed to coincide with the presidential debate this week, a survivor of the Aurora, Colo., shooting is appearing in a new ad that calls for lawmakers to come up with a plan to end gun violence.

In the 30-second spot that will air nationally, Stephen Barton recounts how he was shot in the face and neck in a suburban Denver theater but still counts himself lucky. "Forty-eight thousand Americans won't be so lucky because they'll be murdered with guns in the next president's terms," he says.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a coalition of 700 mayors, sponsored the ad and has spent $100,000 so far this year lobbying, according to data from the Center on Responsive Politics. The ad is part of the coalition's "Demand A Plan" campaign.

This post has been updated to clarify that the coalition includes more than 700 members.
