Maybe I should apply

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is looking for a CEO. You’d think someone would be lined up for that job but, instead, they’re posting job ads.

So long

Paul Helmke’s last day at the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership was yesterday. Speculation on a successor is probably premature. I’m not certain what successes he mentioned here unless it’s that one state still bans carry of guns. Good bye, Paul. And good luck.

Tired of losing?

Paul Helmke is leaving the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership. Contract up.

Anti-gun groups on ATF running guns into Mexico

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Coalition to Stop Gun Violence is clamoring that Issa’s staff releasing emails violates a judge’s order. They don’t really care about real gun violence, apparently. And the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership says it’s still the gun lobby’s fault because ATF only let a few (2,500 by some counts) guns into Mexico.

The truth seeps out

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

There is a reason I call them the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership. Meanwhile, Denny Henny parrots the declining gun ownership lie.

Paul Helmke coming to town

Monday, April 18th, 2011

Well, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership will be in Chattanooga, under the guise of reducing gun violence. A push to have that stopped, painting him as an extremist.

I step away for a couple of days

And apparently the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership has a rough week. They were talking to the White House gun advisor and then: One area in which Croley has shown less interest, according to several people who have spoken with him about the issue, is restricting the large-volume ammunition magazines that allowed the Tucson […]

NRA buys body armor for police

Friday, March 25th, 2011

That’s odd since the Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Ownership tells me the NRA must hate police since they don’t like gun control.

Hunting people

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

That’s what high-capacity, death clips (or whatever the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is calling them this week) only use. But why exempt police?

Reaction to Obama’s piece on gun control

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

None of the Obama proposals would have stopped the Tucson shooting. Gun control: what you do instead of something. The NYT says that NRA declines to meet with Obama on gun policy. I can’t say I blame them. This meeting will consist of the administration pushing more gun control items. The NRA’s stance should be […]

What if you had a rational debate and no one noticed?

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011

On one hand, I can see why some folks rail against the one or two anti-gun bloggers out there. They think maybe someone on the fence is reading those blogs and can be convinced. Unlikely. No one reads them but us. Well, you. I don’t read them. I’m afraid the stupid will rub off. I […]

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership Board Member, Joan Peterson: I give you the argument of the guys with the “man pants” on ladies and gentlemen-” We’re saying that we’d rather have more gun deaths and lower overall violent crime, than zero gun deaths and higher rates of violent crime if given the choice” And […]

ATF Cuts & Gunrunner

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Good. Cut in by 50%. ATF is all butthurt that the cuts would mean they couldn’t fight gun trafficking to Mexico. Which is funny since the ATF is actually being investigated by a Senator’s office for allowing guns to go into Mexico. Jacob says don’t cut it, abolish it. That’s not realistic, someone has to […]

Budget Shortfall

Shiny New ATF Director

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Or Who is Andrew Traver? The Truth about guns is not a fan. And notes that the Obama movie coincided with a Brady Campaign press release. He also has ties to anti-gun people and is not a fan of you owning semi-automatic rifles. A disaster waiting to happen? And getting props from the Brady Campaign […]

Via Cam, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is hosting a fundraiser in NYC. The list of attendees includes rappers Maino and Fat Joe. Fat Joe’s latest album is called I Wanna Kill People Vol. 1. And Maino says more guns means more pussy and that if you decide to shoot someone, he’ll be […]

We’ve often wondered how many “members” the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership has. Well, let’s just say it’s substantially less than a Million Moms.

Look, guns!

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

And they’re scary! Booga booga. That seems to be the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership’s latest fundraising strategy.

A gag about the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership ceasing operations isn’t far off the mark in terms of dwindling revenue. More data here.

CBS News does Starbucks

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

A few notes on this video. Do you notice how, generally, the pro-gun activists are smiling and friendly and having a good time. But the anti-gun folks are tense, angry, and yelling? Except for that one pro-gun guy that they zoom in on right when they say NRA. They mention NRA but they never actually […]

The Spin Cycle

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership has started spinning the McDonald case, which hasn’t even been decided yet. They say the court emphasized reasonable regulations. Odd because most of the Brady wish list items are not reasonable. Anyway, read all the spin from Helmke right here.


Monday, February 22nd, 2010

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is all about re-writing history. I guess they need to appear moderate since they keep losing.

Holding on

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership is touting as victory maintaining the status quo at a restaurant. In California. Not gaining ground, just trying to hold it.

That’s more members than they have

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership claims 25K signed their petition to get Starbuck’s to prohibit carrying guns. In other news, my neglected twitter account has more fans than the Brady Campaign. They’re beating me on facebook, though.

Quote of the Day

On The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership: The Brady Bunch are starting to see the writing on the wall and they have grown desperate. The evidence over the last 10 years have proven their every argument wrong. Gun control hasnít worked. Gun rights have. States that have the least restrictions tend to also have […]

We’re so used to creating astroturf, we expect it from our opponents

Monday, February 8th, 2010

Regarding the post below about bigotry and The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership, it occurred to me that one of the problems for them is that they don’t know who they’re having an argument with. Says their blogger who may or may not be Petey, Paul, Dennis or some unpaid intern: In fact, the […]


Monday, February 8th, 2010

That’s been a meme on gun blogs for a while. Because gun rights are civil rights and those who oppose civil rights have historically been viewed as bigots. I’ve said before that my only issue with the meme was one of marketing. I don’t think the meme is effective with your average white people. That […]

So much for relevance

Starbucks blows off the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Ownership: Starbucks has brushed aside a request from a gun control advocacy group to ban the display of guns in its retail locations, saying it will abide by laws that allow patrons to openly carry unloaded weapons. I guess the pressure from tens of petition signers […]
