What we’re up against

I linked to this yesterday, but in a different context. To illustrate what we’re up against, here’s a reminder of what The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is about:

I certainly agree with your sentiments. There is no pressing need for optics that allow shooters to make sniper shots from over one hundred meters.

Not only are they anti-gun, they’re anti-scope.

    I’ve e-mailed them since some people are questioning wheather the MySpace poster is for real. We’ll see if they respond. Even if they deny it, I wouldn’t be surprised if they hired a young staffer to do MySpace outreach and weren’t paying a whole lot of attention to what said staffer was saying. We’ll see what becomes of this. I’ll print whatever their reply is, but considering I trust them to be honest about as far as I can throw Paul Helmke, we should probably take any denial with the appropriate grains of salt.

    They can’t even hide that one behind the “guns are just for hunting” facade. Either they’ve never hunted at all, or never done it between the Mississippi and the Cascades.

    Hell, if I’d had a gun and it was in season, I had a gorgeous 400m+ shot at a buck with a great rack at the Yakima Training Center back in ’05.

    HL, heck, while you’re never going to get a clear 100 yard shot at a deer in Michigan’s woods, where the population density is low enough to allow rifle hunting at all, many hunters still carry scoped rifles, and most use full-power, long-range cartridges like the 30-06. They just knock the deer down better. I surely do hope that this can be proven to be linked to the Bradys – just that line about a scoped rifle being too heavy and cumbersome for hunting is priceless!
