CNN is reporting on record high sales of firearms. That data is pretty clear, but the Brady Campaign are still in denial:
“The research we’ve seen indicates fewer and fewer people are owning more and more guns,” said Caroline Brewer of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “All the trends indicate the number of Americans who own guns has declined.”
What “research we’ve seen?” As they are well aware, polling is indicating otherwise. The ostrich approach is not going to make the “problem” go away. It’s not going to suddenly make it all true. I realize that Brady has to engage their donors, and not admit all is hopeless, but the denial is comical at this point. Even CNN is recognizing it.
The lesson for our opponents here is that unintended consequences work both ways. You were the ones that wanted the background check. Well, now we have it, and unfortunatly for you, it’s telling everyone your goose is cooked.
