Thanks Zumbo

The newest Brady report on weapons that look like assault weapons is full of the same stuff they’ve been peddling for 20 years. Except this time, they quote Jim Zumbo on page 17. No mention, obviously, that Zumbo has recanted.

    I do seem to recall being castigated for not being as forgiving as others when Zumbo recanted. The harm he has done us will survive him, and as you can see it has survived his recantation.

    He richly deserves that. That’s justice.

    Seeing Moron #1 and Moron #2 weigh in basically confirmed my original view: Give Zumbo a break. He fucked up, and then he recanted. It happens. Show me someone who can say he never fucked up, and I’ll show you a liar. The dick who quoted him without noting that he recanted is entirely to blame for this, just like a dick who quotes a court decision while conveniently neglecting to note that it was reversed on appeal.

    From the Brady report: “The guides on our hunt tell me that the use of AR and AK rifles have a rapidly growing following among hunters, especially prairie dog hunters.” — Jim Zumbo

    So the Bradys have been telling us that these types of guns are rarely used for hunting, yet even the quote that they use from Zumbo’s ORIGINAL article shows that they have been lying.

    xrlq, if the Brady Press can be excused for ANYTHING, they can be excused for not getting into the arcane innards of the gun boards where L’affaire Zumbo was hashed out. I venture there myself only when I need technical help.

    Perhaps the NRA, with all it’s muscle and fine media Rolodex, might try to have Mr. Zumbo’s “recantation” republished so that the Brady Press couldn’t avoid seeing it.

    But then you have to ask yourself if the Brady Press is even INTERESTED in the accuracy of their bilge, and, answering my own question, I’ll say that they aren’t.

    I’ve never noticed the Brady Bunch to be too concerned about truth or accuracy of facts.

    The only moron I noticed was name-calling. It seems to be his only real talent. Especially when he loses a debate.
