Sugarman Not too Pleased With NICS Deal

Josh Sugarmann of the Violence Policy Center, takes the a look in the gift horse’s mouth, and doesn’t like what he sees. Hey Josh, the Brady Campaign figured out that they could spin this as a victory to their supporters and donors, and were lucky to have the media gobble up the notion like they are wont to do with anything you guys tell them. It even tricked enough gun owners to get the NRA in hot water with its constituents.

But Josh, buddy, seriously… take the spin and go with it. I mean, you wouldn’t want to ruin Paul Helmke’s fundraising efforts by getting the notion out there, among yours and Brady’s donors, that HR2640 wasn’t actually a gun control law, would you? If that’s the case, that means you guys haven’t won a victory in, what is it now? 14 years.

    At least we now have written support that the VPC cares more about banning guns than about Civil Rights. I think I’m going to forward a copy of his screed to the VFW and others.

    FYI, I just noticed that comments are now disabled at the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Violence blog, even on the last two posts which were at 40 and 132 replies.
