Ladd Everitt, Comm. Dir. of the CSGV likes to obfuscate, lie and deny things that make them look bad. He doesn't do it very well. Looking back on the days when he was outed as sockpuppet 'GritsJr' for another post (since deleted, now using 'BayBeauty###), I saw this comment(pg 2 a little over halfway down):
Even belying the fact that the CSGV/EFSGV filed briefs in support of DC's handgun ban, taking a little trip in the 'WayBackMachine' shows Ladd is either ignorant and/or a liar about his own organization.
This 'crawl' was in 2004. The next available one was in 2008, post Heller, where it was changed. Well w/in the '20 years' claimed by Ladd.Get that '100K individual supporters' line. They've always deluded themselves that they've had more support than what exists in reality.
Just one more piece of evidence that gun controllers, especially their leadership, lie. They lie about the present and they will lie about the past (including complete reconstructions of events) in order to present 'goodfacts'. Whether they believe their own lies is a matter of debate. Many of them have shown signs of mental illness in their denial of facts and evidence.
Either way, dishonesty and ignorance is their bread and butter. They cannot survive in an environment of open discussion and evidence. I aim to see them buried in the political/cultural landfill along w/ segregation, social darwinism and phrenology.
