Brady Bunch recognize they're losing..

So give them more money:

Unfortunately this means we have to raise enough money to offset the millions that our elected officials now get from the gun lobby. But politicians listen to their constituents and won't vote the gun interests if they see that people are fed up with the carnage wrought by weak regulation. A strategy that combines advocacy with money can force politicians to stop straddling the fence on gun issues.

We also need to get the message out that sensible gun laws work for all citizens, including those who own guns for hunting or self-protection. These legal gun owners need to join us to insist that the right to own firearms must be countered by sensible ownership protections. Without their support, we will never adequately address this issue, and the killing of our children will continue.

Board member

Brady Campaign & Brady Chicago Committee

So Mr. Vanden Berk recognizes that the politicians ARE listening to their constituency by voting against gun laws. As SIH pointed out, the recent PA laws were opposed 100:1 .

While citing advocacy and money, he forgets that numbers count. The BC has some very loud advocates but we have more of them. W/o the numbers, unless you have rich sponsors, you don't have the money. The Anti's have rich sponsors but not the numbers and that hurts them.

Basically he admits that they need us. We don't need them.
