Brady Campaign talking points

Anti's are always going on about pro-rights advocates 'regurgitating NRA talking points'. A funny claim when most of them can't be in a debate w/o talking about 'military style assault weapons' and 'gun show loopholes'.

Today it seems the DC police chief shifted this little tidbit to another stomach:
D.C. Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier assailed a new bill yesterday that would eliminate most of the District's gun laws, telling a congressional panel that the measure would allow residents to carry loaded semiautomatic rifles in the streets, creating a nightmare scenario for homeland security officials.
Hmm. Where did she get that bit from?

The WaPo article notes that the Oversight committee released a report opposing the bill. That would be true. There was the opening statement by Chairman Waxman, rated F by the NRA. They also had four politically motivated 'witnesses' testify before them. All of them use the same exact lines and talking points.

But they didn't get a presser from the BC. No, not at all.

OK, I read HR 6691. Helmke obviously hasn't or is blatantly lying, pick one.

If you thought making the BC look like fools was easy before, this feels like an early Christmas gift.

They've truly lost it. They're in a corner.
