I find it interesting that the book is available for $0.01 on Amazon. A penny for his thoughts is apparently the going rate.
Handgun Control is now The Brady Campaign.
Even before the name change the organization pushed for more restrictive background checks on rifles and shotguns. And they pushed hard for the “assault weapon” ban that ultimate became law in 1994 which banned many rifles and shotguns in common use.
