the non-power of one
“Neat,” I thought. I’d wondered why “Handgun Control” was lurking here yesterday morning. But having this appear on both the Brady Blog and especially The Huffington Post ought to really drive some traffic my way, and that never hurts.
And then a funny thing happened. Nothing.
Sebastian says he got exactly one hit from Brady and five from HuffPo.
Astroturf, indeed. Is there anyone who thinks about (or even cares about) gun control who isn’t on the clock?
That was one of the things discussed at NRA Con. And a theme discussed here before: the anti-gunners simply cannot penetrate on the internet. There just aren’t that many people passionate about gun control. The internet is the grassiest of grass roots and the gun controllers have none on the internet. They have to pay bloggers. People are passionate about rights. People have to be bought and paid for to be passionate about being anti-gun.
We’re winning on the internet too. Where everyone has a say. And that is huge!
