(Newser) – A survivor of the Aurora movie theater shootings is taking his case against gun violence to the people: In a new ad for a gun control group founded by Michael Bloomberg, Stephen Barton urges voters to "demand a plan" from the presidential candidates. It's airing on local TV in Colorado and Washington, DC, and on cable nationally, the Huffington Post reports. "When you watch the presidential debates, ask yourself: Who has a plan to stop gun violence?" Barton says, warning that in the next presidential term, 48,000 Americans will be killed by guns.

The movie theater was a "gun free" zone. How is that working out for you?

Looks like the liberals found another stooge to follow in the footsteps of Flake.
