I guess with the press a lot less willing, or perhaps able, to do the heavy lifting for the gun control movementÂ they’ve chosen to do it themselves. Â Personally, I’m upset this guy doesn’t have a conviction for annoying use of frames in a web site. Â OK, that’s not a crime, but it should be.
Is this the kind of guy I want carrying a loaded pistol around in public? Â No. Â But the Bradys like to paint guys like this as a rule rather than an exception. Â You can find police officers with these kinds of problems too, even in New York City. Â I agree with Doug Pennington that human beings are fallible. Â But Doug and the Bradys like to think that there is a class of people who are immune from these human failings — a class of people who is worthy to have the means to protect themselves, while the rest of us are simply unable. Â I suppose that’s really the philosophical difference between us. Â I tend to think most people can deal with serious responsibilities, and those that can ought not be punished because a minority of people can’t.
UPDATE: To actually read the Brady Investigative Journalism bit, you have to click on the little blue arrow with the red circle around it to make it appear. Â Who thought this was a good idea?
