The Brady Campaign released a YouTube video* last week. It was a statement following the shooting of the WDBJ reporter and photographer. It has been viewed 113 times. One of those was me. Probably a significant number of them were other pro-gun people who did not sympathize with Brady President Dan Gross’s message.
113 viewings? Even every person who viewed it donated $20 it wouldn’t cover the cost of production. And even if all 113 people were convinced to vote for politicians who would advocate for more gun control the effect would be deep in the noise.
I posted a video of shooting at the steel match on Whidbey Island the day before Brady’s and it has 36 views so far. My video of the Marysville USPSA match two weeks ago has 87 views. Combined that’s 123 views and I don’t don’t have a staff and multi-hundred thousand dollar budget. I’m just a B-class pistol shooter and third tier blogger.
What does that make The Brady Campaign?
We are getting closer to seeing my dream come true.
