    New gun-control campaign airs on the league's games Christmas Day.


    The words “gun control” are never mentioned.

    But the organization that paid for them, Everytown for Gun Safety, has a robust and controversial agenda: It was founded by former New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg specifically as a counterweight to the National Rifle Association, and the group also battles at the local, state and federal level to expand background checks for gun buyers, strengthen penalties for gun trafficking and ban gun sales to people convicted of domestic abuse.

    Is the message intended for the people watching the games or playing them?

    Save it for the NFL vs. NRA thread.

    Kidding, of course. Just having a little fun.
