The Brady folks must be pretty desperate to try to remain relevant when the DNC has largely been focused on just about every other lefty issue that isn’t theirs, and they are begging the DNC to say something nice about their cause, and reminicing about the Clinton years when they could sit at the cool kids’Â table.
Of course, the lack of attention to the gun issue plays both ways. For instance, I’m covering the conventions because there just isn’t any relevant gun news out there. All that’s coming across my Google Alerts and other sources are the dozen or so armed citizen stories I see per week. You know, the ones the Brady folks claim never happen*. I’ve made an editorial decision not to cover armed citizen stories unless there’s some unusual angle that makes for an interesting post. But I will say, I’d prefer to be on this side of things than theirs, where armed citizen stories are too banal to blog about, rather than begging to be relevant because my issue is as dead as Carrie Nation.
* Just in case the Brady supporters want to say I’m exaggerating about what I pass up. See here, here, here, here, and here. That’s just a few days worth. These gets picked up by local news outlets. You never see it picked up in national news. Doesn’t fit the narrative.
