Quote of the day–Sarah Brady

More than ninety percent of Americans agree that a waiting period to purchase firearms is sane, sensible policy, and the success of the Brady Law over the last five years proves them right. Why are we fixing what isn’t broken? And why will we again be losing innocent people to an enraged spouse, a disturbed employee, or a would-be criminal needing a fast and easy firearm?

Sarah Brady
Press Release from Handgun Control Inc.
November 30, 1998
From http://www.handguncontrol.org/press/nov30-98.htm (as of February 18, 1999) it is still available at http://www.handguncontrol.org/media/press/view/147 which is an alias for http://www.bradycampaign.org/media/press/view/147.
[Two things.

First, Brady/HCI measures success in terms of number of people blocked from purchasing a gun. They ignore studies that are unable to show their pet laws are effective. They ignore the people who died who might have lived had they been able to purchase a gun to defend themselves from a serious and immediate threat. This is like being pleased your unmarried teenage daughter wasn’t able to purchase contraceptives at the local drug store and ignoring that she is pregnant.

Second, the domain handguncontrol.org is a valid alias for bradycampaign.org. This is true both technically and politically. “Brady Campaign” was an attempt to hide what they really are. Just as they attempted to hide the meaning of the Second Amendment prior to the Heller decision they continue their deceptive ways now and probably will continue to do so as long as they exist.

For the geeks, I have saved you the effort to do the WhoIs query:

  1. That 90% figure all depends on how their questions were worded.
    Sure, I’m willing to wait to buy my next gun . . . about as long as it takes a NICs background check to come through. And no longer.

  2. Since the quote is an excerpt, and I presume more people will read the comments than follow the link to Brady, I think it is relevant to point out that this press release is from the very same day that the Brady waiting period provision expired and the [functionally equivalent] instant check took over. This puts in context Sarah getting her panties in a bunch over the [asinine] assumption that everyone out there shares her [projected] impulse control issues.

  3. Ever think of registering bradycampaign.net, .com, dot whatever and handguncontrol.com, .net, dot etcetera and redirecting them to Just One Question?
