Speaking of the Brady Blog
They’re gonna have some changes. One of those is, apparently, to shut off comments. I’m guessing that’s because there is no better source for pro-gun information than the Brady Blog itself. And, of course, the pro-gun comments outnumber the anti-gun comments by a ginormous margin. And the trackbacks usually make them look like idiots.
Update: In comments, DMeadows notes he predicted it a bit back:
I guess we’ll see what the BC actually does with the blog, but I speculated back on July 1st, in “Reasoned Discourse? – Part II” on the BC blog:
“I wonder if this “Reasoned Discourse” series is actually a strategy to build a pretext for closing the blog to comments or shutting the blog down itself.
“Think about it. This blog could be perceived by the BC as a failed and embarrassing experiment. Gun rights folks far outnumber gun control proponents. The presenting of facts and attempts at rational argument of POV is done far more by pro-rights people. Most of Paul’s blog posts are either about political/legal setbacks or some other negativity for gun control, and few are about successes or big wins for gun control.”
