Brady Bunch Prepping for Loss in McDonald v Chicago

Amidst all the claims that the 'gun lobby' really lost in Heller, the Brady Campaign, just like the Joyce Foundation, is lawyering up, knowing that they're going to have to fight tooth and nail for every one of their 'common-sense, reasonable' gun laws.

They've been reduced to claiming victory because convicted criminals will use any excuse to claim a twinkie defense. You know, the majority of those 'many' cases Helmke brags about the 'gun lobby' 'losing'. But even he knows the fact that those don't matter. It's cases like Heller and McDonald that are shaping the agenda nationwide and even the lower court cases of significance are generally leaning our way.

And, as usual:

"The Brady Campaign, We Win, even when we're Loosing!"

What's really great about that video is that it sounds like they're retaining lawyers and planning to fight every court case that comes up the pike.

Perfect, what better way to dry up their funds and force them to dissolve their staff than that?

Don't let the door hit you on the way out?

Yes but when will SCOTUS rule? I pretty much expect they will not rule on it until the last day of the session. Meaning they are forced to. Just like with Heller.

I expect it to be THE VERY last thing they rule on for this session.

I also expect some one sentence to screw us over just like with Heller.

At the rate that the Brady Bots are raking in the money, you know, donations, I suspect they might be able to file in at most 2 cases, if they don't have to send a lawyer. $159 so far. That will keep the light on.

One thing I keep think about... how much would it take to buy the Brady Campaign?

You know, buy the name, the offices, the contact lists, the whole shebang? Take 'em over, and quietly become the Brady Campaign to Stop Gun Violence... By Promoting Gun Ownership.

Dixie, I really like the way you think. I suspect they would get more Joyce cash just to stop that from happening, though.

Funny you should mention that--they recently put their mailing list up for sale, despite their promise not to:

Just like they don't 'really' support gun bans.
