Brady Group's Dying

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Things are not going well for the Brady anti-rights group, as the principles of robust rights to keep and bear arms grows in America. Scare tactic myths they've spread for several decades are apparently collapsing under their own fictitious weight.

To raise funds, the group is selling its mailing list, a paltry 50,000 names, many of whom are known to be pro-rights activists (like The Uninvited Ombudsman and friends) who joined, "to keep their enemies close." Previously, the Bradys claimed a million members, and absorbed the so-called Million Mom March (a misnomer) as a group under its umbrella, when that group got so small it couldn't sustain itself.

In other news, Examiner.com reported on June 4 that, according to public filings required by disclosure laws, Brady had raised $1.7 million in the 2000 election cycle, but that dropped to just over $15,000 in 2008. So far in 2010 the group has raised only $2,500, which came from a single donor.

"The conclusion is clear," writes reporter Rob Reed, "The public no longer believes the gun control lies." I saved the file, but now can't find a live link to the original story; I'm sure you techies can dig it out, and please accept my humble apologies for ineptitude.

Good! They're a bunch of thugs who twist the truth or flat out lie if they think the story will benefit them.

Good riddance to the Brady Bunch. Perhaps now they and their execrable sidekick Josh Sugarmann will get the full spread of torpedoes up their institutional kiester that they have needed all of these years. We will send a minisub down to the ocean floor to survey their wreckage when we have more time. Much later.

Rob Reed made the Examiner post (http://www.examiner.com/x-30265-Detroit-Gun-Rights-Examiner~y2010m6d11-More-bad-news-for-the-antigun-crowd-as-the-Brady-Campaign-sells-its-member-list-to-raise-cash)

I was the one that found the Brady list for sale (http://blog.joehuffman.org/2010/05/28/BradyCampaignMembershipNumbers.aspx.

I almost forgot...

That one and only Brady donor you mentioned is the Brady Campaign Board Chair (http://blog.joehuffman.org/2010/06/12/WhoIsBradysDonor.aspx).
