When Sebastian told me about this Opposing Views piece from Brady, I almost couldn’t believe they would do something like that.
President Obamaâ€™s invitation to sit down and talk about ways to reduce gun violence in America was met with the National Rifle Associationâ€™s usual stubborn refusal to stop the bloodshed in favor of selling more weapons. The NRAâ€™s ridiculous stance was roundly â€“ and deservedly â€“ criticized by editorial writers and columnists across the nation.
It goes on the quote from four different media outlets criticizing NRA’s position on the meeting with the Administration. Not that I want to help the Brady Campaign staff do their jobs or anything, but who in their right mind would want to show their supporters & donors that the media cycle has become exclusively about the NRA while their own political agenda of gun & magazine bans is being outright ignored in the debate with the White House? It’s not often you see a group highlighting their failure to be relevant, but the Brady Campaign seems to embrace that strategy here.
