Daniel Gross, President of the Brady Campaign, says 'The tide is turning' in his latest Huffpo rant (and a rant it is). Yeah, it is, but not in the direction he's hoping for. While the whole Florida Martin/Zimmerman (in reality, an anti-ALEC movement) may be a bump in the road for true 'progressive' firearm rights, one thing they ignore are things like this:
Yep, that's an AR in .308 for sale at Wal-mart. Can we say 'in common use" boys and girls?
While Gross may have been hired for fundraising so the folks at the BC can keep their jobs, this is what 'grassroots' is built on. Actually having membership (which the NRA, SAF, ISRA etc. do) and not being primarily/exclusively funded by the Joyce Foundation or Soros. This is why 74k people show up at the NRA convention while gun control groups don't have that many members combined.
Yeah, the tide is 'turning', but not in their favor.
