ORLY?

I'm not seeing it, Paul.

I'm a pretty avid newshound. I use Lexis. I use Google to aggregate news stories and blog posts. I watch bills in the House and Senate.

Frankly, Paul - I'm seeing bupkis.

Methinks you're just as delusional today as when you excitedly yelled to a staffer, "Tell them we're pleased! Tell them we're really pleased!" at the conclusion to Oral Arguments in McDonald v Chicago.

Well he isn't lying really. There is a resurgence for gun regulation by several senators and other "safety" groups. The problem is they are of no consequence and no one in large numbers are backing them. They are just the same lame morons time and time again just waiting for a tragedy to latch their beaks onto like a vulture and try to get more legislation passed. That is what leaches do so it shouldn't come as any surprise.

It's soooo resurgent that his video - uploaded January 28, 2011 - has all of 188 views. By contrast, my latest video - posted January 31, 2011 - has 1580 as of this posting. Almost any video by any one of us "gun guys" on YouTube gets thousands of views in a couple of days.

It doesn't seem that his message is very popular or even well known.

FAIL ... as in EPIC.

Not to defend the Brady Campaign, but the view count meter on youtube is not functioning correctly/tampered with all the time.

I highly doubt this video has so little views, but that's not to say it has over 10,000 either.

Some one saw him on the street, accosted him for his total failure on this issue, and he registered it as a "resurgence".

Never let a tragedy go to waste, right Paul?

Mr. Helmke strikes me as a stupid man. I like how he left the part about donating to the very end, as if it were an afterthought.

Helmke isn't stupid and neither is Hennigan, Huffpo, LCAV, etc...

Understand the enemy, really. This latest by Helmke is no different than another comical character in denial we had a couple years back.
