Sympathy for the Bradys

Assault Weapons Ban TombstoneIt’s times like this I think we ought to be classy and offer our sympathies to groups like The Brady Campaign, who no doubt will take the news today very hard, considering it follows on the heels of a tragic mass shooting involving politically incorrect semi-automatic rifles.  If sixty-five Democrats are willing to preemptively stand up and say “no thanks” to any new ban on semi-automatic firearms after that, The Brady Campaign can pretty much forget about the assault weapons issue at the federal level.  At least for the foreseeable future.  The tides could certainly turn, but 65 Dem votes is a lot ot make up for, and Eric Holder’s statements to the contrary, Obama certainly hasn’t indicated he’s willing to risk any political capital trying to get one passed.   Bad TequilaSo I will offer the Brady’s the same advice I offered after the Heller decision was handed down in June.  That’s right, nothing, and I mean nothing, beats Tequila for helping you forget that the most Democratic Congress in a generation won’t even hold a hearing on your issue.

When drowing your sorrows, don’t bother with the good stuff.  Go right to the bottom shelf.  There’s no shame in it. I’ve followed my own advice on more occasions than I care to admit.  It works!  You might not feel that great the next morning, but hey, you won’t have much time to think about legislation, or the lack thereof, when your head feels like it’s going to explode.  So crack open a bottle, it’ll do more to help the Mexican economy and fight off drug cartels than anything you guys ever proposed will.

  1. Yeah Bradys. Go ahead and open that bottle of Herradura, and don’t forget to eat the worm somewhere along the way.

  2. Indeed,

    When Nancy Pelosi comes out and says “We need to enforce the existing laws…” (Yeah, guys I know it’s B.S.), then you know your issue is dead, dead, dead!

    Congratulations Brady Camp, welcome to irrelevancy! Say high to the Gnostics for me!

    Wow! For a second there I thought I was reading Iowahawk!


  4. Our sympathy is well placed, indeed.

    Please allow me to introduce myself
    I’m a man of wealth and taste
    I’ve been around for a long, long year
    Stole many a man’s soul and faith

    So if you meet me
    Have some courtesy
    Have some sympathy, and some taste
    Use all your well-learned politesse
    Or I’ll lay your soul to waste

    Pleased to meet you
    Hope you guessed my name
    But what’s puzzling you
    Is the nature of my game

  5. The US house consists of 435 voting members, currently of which 257 are Democrats, and 178 are Republicans. Given that a simple majority is 218 votes … if these 65 Dems voted against a ban on semiautos, it would take 26 Reps voting FOR such a bill to pass it.

    Certainly, some welcome news.

  6. I can see, in my mind’s eye, the antis of note snuggling a bottle of cheap scotch on the dirty linoleum floor.

    I like that.

  7. Dock:

    And in my own mind’s eye … that floor is inside the toilet stall of a greasy, nasty urban bar. And they are hunched over that toilet … which contains large particulate organic matter because it hasn’t been flushed in days.

    I like that too.

  8. Hey, I happen to LIKE tequila, so it’s for celebrating, especially the top shelf stuff. Too good for the antis.
    Now, like Dock I can imagine say a bottle of Clan Macgregor or even better, given their budget, a bottle of Thunderbird or Mad dog 20/20.
