Andrew took the whole evening off to go to a "Brady event." Then he spent a lot of time doing some nice editing work on his video.

He was actually able to get a "Brady buncher" to ADMIT that Brady is anti-gun. That's pretty EPIC! However, he would like to get more views on this video - the idea is that he wants as many pro-gunners to see it as possible. This is so that they (and the general public) can "see" the TRUE FACE of Brady.

PLEASE go here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwcQgUv05Yw - and view it - then Like it.

I'm not embedding - since it's easier to "Like" if you land on the actual YouTube page.

PLEASE DO THIS. I would "like" to get this viral - and see 10,000 views - within the next 24 hours.

Please also blog it, tweet it, FB it, etc. . .

I am really curious how powerful our social media "peen" is here. This will be a nice test for something that *may* happen in a few months. . .

;)

Let's see what our collective "crowd source" can do on this.

The Bradys will blow that video off as just one guy misspeaking. It's too bad the video doesn't show all of them standing with him and agreeing. Now that would be epic.

This is a good example of a 'protest' working to our advantage. When you get a typical Brady supporter to respond, they reveal the roots of their arguements (which are primarily founded in hysteria, emotion, and ignorance).

When members cannot articulate the basic laws governing firearms and cannot use the correct terminology, it gets people to thinking about the validity of their position and just what message they are trying to get across.

Another example of this lack of focus is with the signs they were holding. What the hell is "Sow the Seeds of Peace"? Sounds like an anti-war sign and he could well be standing with "Code Pink". No one would know what his beef was without walking up to him and asking.

Thank you, Andrew- for taking the time to videotape the Bradys.

Note his comment about "arrogance". Exercising your rights is "arrogant" - you should defer to those who would strongly prefer that you refrain from doing so.

As for being "unbulleted" is that like the shoulder thing that comes up?

In Los Angeles only a few executives... aka - "LA does it right, only the privileged few get to do it, as it should be".

We'll never convert people like this. But that doesn't mean its hopeless.

oaklander

You are incorrect.

Brady's "public face" is "reasonable gun control."

That simply is NOT TRUE.

If you talk to their supporters, it's starting to appear (at least to me) that their agenda is a "Mexican" style of gun control. Look up how Mexico does it - it's NOT REASONABLE AT ALL. . .

You do not understand "traction."

There were 17 video views a couple of hours earlier this AM - now there are 1000 percent more (i.e., about 180). That IS traction. And remember, that many people are still sleeping - or have not logged into their computers.

I predict 10k views within 24 hours.

Again, wrong.

We have a large "buffer" when it comes to online stuff. It's only "mediated" (traditional media) that tends to excoriate inarticulate gunnies. Unmediated media is dominated by people like us (pro-gun).

You are not understanding the playing field here.

No. "reasonable regulation" and "keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people." which of course sounds fine to most people, but regulation to them means a outright ban, and dangerous people are anybody who even considers owning a gun.

If you need proof, like the national Brady campaign facebook and read some of the comments from their fans.

To the extent that Brady is "grassroots" (and they are not) their "boots on the ground" are actually "jack boots."

It's kind of sickening to me that there is ONLY ONE NATIONAL GROUP IN THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY THAT IS CURRENTLY FIGHTING AGAINST A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

There's more to it than that - Brady is funded by large corporate and institutional sponsors - and they likely get free "pro-bono" legal help from large "defense" law firms (I KNOW LCAV does).

Not to get too TFH on this - but it's just interesting to me that Brady is not even a real movement. It's a group of a few very wealthy "white males" who for some reason do not like guns. The "supporters" are just pawns. Many of them are victims of crime, and Brady reaches out to them and then exploits them.

There's something really sick about Brady - but I can't quite put my finger on it. I am still not sure WHY these few people are doing this - it's strange. But like I said in another thread, kind of useful to us.

I don't feel defeated at all. In fact I'm in enemy territory (figuratively speaking) and I've taken and am holding their ground, with the help of two others from Virginia and Pennsylvania. Right now, I OWN the "Gun Fight" facebook page, and the anti's, like the Bradys and LCAV, have essentially retreated from it.

I like the idea of getting to know our enemies a little better, but I'm struggling to see how this interview will do much for our cause. It certainly won't hurt it, but the idea that the Brady's are "antigun" according to one of their apparent members reads like a headline titled "scientists discover most fish can out-swim a pachyderm". I suppose it's somehow an important distinction, but to me it's little more than semantics. If we're gonna get spun up about something this seemingly trivial (please change my mind on this) then I shutter at the thought of how the Bradys could turn the tables by interviewing a poor sampling of gun owners.

There are all kinds of people out there, with all kinds of beliefs (and all kinds of strengths of belief). I suspect it's safe to say that the people in question are fringe, sort of the anti-gun equivalent of the most rabid environmentalists.

Everyone knows that the true agenda of the Brady Campaign is to get rid of all guns. There's lip service to "reasonable" but both sides know that's BS.

I don't feel at all defeated, I just don't see it as a big win. The video will be seen and "liked" by a very substantial number of pro-gun people but is unlikely to reach large numbers of those who are on the fence.

As you yourself observed, their viability is in no way linked to large numbers of "true believers" likely to be disenchanted by such frank admissions. Those who provide the funding know what they are about, the politicians who listen to them know it, and so do the majority of firearm owners (possibly only a bare majority considering the "my granddaddies shotgun is good enough for me," crowd).

I think we'll simply see them progressively marginalized (as they have already been to an extent) by the sheer weight of legal opinions that undermine their ability to accomplish anything of note. They will be completely lost (whether they are willing to recognize the fact or not) with only a few more Supreme Court wins under our belt.

A minor win like this simply pales in comparison to the big picture.

As for those who are saying that it's won't go as far as it would if there would be folks from the BC (like BoDs, or campaign heads, etc), you're right, but this is the first step in the right direction.

We need to coordinate an effort for that to happen, and it can happen because we know that the BC heads (as with LCAVs Leftwich did) will eventually put their (already shot) foot in their mouths at one point or another.

While this video was not a huge win, I was able to get one of them to admit to allow certain "Executives" were able to even get a CCW, to admit that he thinks OC'ing is just "arrogance" and that the organization is Anti-Gun.

What it is, is a video that will land in the lap of someone in Brady leadership, either locally in CA, or at a greater level. Their group was infiltrated at this event by other CalGunners, holding up signs to mock them, and they couldn't do anything. I can assure you, that now they are going to spend time trying to figure how this wont happen again, opposed to cooking up more bs restrictions.

In my eyes, even if it just pisses them off, because I caught them slipping up, then it is a win for me! Every hit is like another bullet added to that assault clip, just waiting to kill those kittens. ;)

Had we been across the street in our own group, then "they" would have been more appropriate.

But like many "black ops", these posters will only work once.... especially with that full screen shot on Fox.

Is this a ďgrand slamĒ like having BHO admit heíd like to confiscate every firearm and have gun owners burned at the stake? No. But nonetheless itís a hit.

Not everyone is solidly in one of the corners; there are a lot of folks in the middle. They may not own a gun, but they may not be against gun ownership, and sadly they might just fall for the line that ďa little more regulation canít be a bad thing Ė and thatís all the Brady people want Ė just a bit of reasonable control.Ē

Fact is these fence sitters are probably the majority. If just one or two of them see, read, or hear the real Brady agenda and come to realize their danger then the video has served its purpose.

Just as itís critical to not cede even one point, likewise itís critical to try score every point possible. We need to perfect the use of technology and communication at the local, regional and state level. Thinking and talking about things are fine, but getting out there and doing things, even small things, ultimately will score the points, and together all those small point will lead to the big win.

Nice work Andrew!

This is one member of the Brady campaign. It won't go viral. What we need to do is to get multiple Brady members at different events answering questions and compile it into one video.

^this....maybe one of those DJ remixes. Where they all say something that is WRONG. I have filming gear more than one camera so we can shoot an event with multiple cameras and get more bradys saying things. I can show up to some events and film it.

How about "CGN Network News" Film Crew. Let the Brady group think our group is part of the MSM covering the event (and have them dress the part) and then let (our) reporter ask ever more probing questions of them and have them respond to the points made by gun rights groups. Give them enough rope so they can hang themselves. Do it all on the sly at several different gathering.

What would it take to start a Calguns Network News crew started (CGNN) and make some CGN press credentials :D. We can put together the volunteers, I'm sure. Just an idea ;)

To the extent that Brady is "grassroots" (and they are not) their "boots on the ground" are actually "jack boots."

It's kind of sickening to me that there is ONLY ONE NATIONAL GROUP IN THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY THAT IS CURRENTLY FIGHTING AGAINST A CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

There's more to it than that - Brady is funded by large corporate and institutional sponsors - and they likely get free "pro-bono" legal help from large "defense" law firms (I KNOW LCAV does).

Not to get too TFH on this - but it's just interesting to me that Brady is not even a real movement. It's a group of a few very wealthy "white males" who for some reason do not like guns. The "supporters" are just pawns. Many of them are victims of crime, and Brady reaches out to them and then exploits them.

There's something really sick about Brady - but I can't quite put my finger on it. I am still not sure WHY these few people are doing this - it's strange. But like I said in another thread, kind of useful to us.

Truth. I've offered to join, help, support them. I've yet to receive a response. Multiple emails through Brady and other avenues and not a single response with how to get involved.

"Q. Is Brady a "gun ban" organization?

A. No. Brady believes that a safer America can be achieved without banning guns.

We believe that law-abiding citizens should be able to buy and keep firearms. And we believe there are sensible gun laws that we can and should insist upon when it comes to gun ownership.

First and foremost, we should try to keep dangerous weapons out of the wrong hands, including criminals and children..."
http://www.bradycampaign.org/about

"We'll take one step at a time, and the first is necessarily - given the political realities - very modest. We'll have to start working again to strengthen the law, and then again to strengthen the next law and again and again. Our ultimate goal, total control of handguns, is going to take time. The first problem is to slow down production and sales. Next is to get registration. The final problem is to make possession of all handguns and ammunition (with a few exceptions) totally illegal." - Former Handgun Control, Inc (brady campaign) Chairman Nelson Shields

Not everyone is solidly in one of the corners; there are a lot of folks in the middle. They may not own a gun, but they may not be against gun ownership, and sadly they might just fall for the line that ďa little more regulation canít be a bad thing Ė and thatís all the Brady people want Ė just a bit of reasonable control.Ē

Fact is these fence sitters are probably the majority. If just one or two of them see, read, or hear the real Brady agenda and come to realize their danger then the video has served its purpose.

You are incorrect.
Brady's "public face" is "reasonable gun control."
That simply is NOT TRUE.
If you talk to their supporters, it's starting to appear (at least to me) that their agenda is a "Mexican" style of gun control. Look up how Mexico does it - it's NOT REASONABLE AT ALL. . .

Though I think that's mostly semantics. It might not be reasonable to you, but it's reasonable to them. What makes your "not reasonable" more valid than their "reasonable"?

A lot of people know about NRA as well as the Brady campaign and they know one of them is for looser/less control and one of them is for stricter/more gun control.
Most people in the middle could care less if the Brady's call themselves anti-gun, pro gun-control, for sensible gun laws, or something else. They only see them as the opposite to the NRA.

To me it looks like an attempt to sensationalize something that's though true, really not that much of a sensation. Especially since the guy doesnt seem to be the brightest in the bunch. Educating people and showing them what the Brady's really want might make a difference, sensationalizing in the same way as they do when they find some gun-toting redneck with a bible, most likely will not.

Sorry, but this "exposing Brady" sounds more like a WND fail story...

I don't think anyone thinks this video is the greatest thing of all time. :) I actually attempted to interview 2 other members, who seemed to have taken a leadership role in the crowd, and was shut down. I followed the group, and was actually able to pull this gentleman aside, because he was just in front of the crowd.
At the very least, one could put this on their blog, or facebook, and use it as a simple discussion tool to educate others who may be on fence, or uncertain about the truth. Many Americans have no idea about gun control, why it doesn't work, why it cost so much, etc. All they hear is that it is supposed to reduce crime.
If my video can change the mind of 1 person, I will be satisfied.
Not to mention, we will continue to pick the brains of the enemy, gathering as much leverage and information as we can....
Just think of the fear going on in their head, wondering if the next person they talk to, is actually a pro gun person trying to get more incriminating information. :)

Anyone that would be even close to getting swayed to our side by that video is already in our ranks. If by chance there's one lost soul that this will win over, is it worth looking like a fool to thousands of others that are on the fence (not that I think that thousands will watch the video, but still)?

I still fail to see what brain picking and information gathering in that video that might scare anyone and if I were in the Brady camp I'd probably sleep better at night rather than worse, after seeing this.

Sorry, but if you try to fight every battle you will lose the war. Just because it's pro-gun doesnt necessarily make it good or useful.

I don't understand what is bad about this video. Who looks like a fool? The majority of the talking was done by the guy Andrew was interviewing.

Andrew took the whole evening off to go to a "Brady event." Then he spent a lot of time doing some nice editing work on his video.

He was actually able to get a "Brady buncher" to ADMIT that Brady is anti-gun. That's pretty EPIC! However, he would like to get more views on this video - the idea is that he wants as many pro-gunners to see it as possible. This is so that they (and the general public) can "see" the TRUE FACE of Brady.

PLEASE go here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwcQgUv05Yw - and view it - then Like it.

I'm not embedding - since it's easier to "Like" if you land on the actual YouTube page.

PLEASE DO THIS. I would "like" to get this viral - and see 10,000 views - within the next 24 hours.

Let's see what our collective "crowd source" can do on this.I haven't read all the preceding posts, but IMO, if you're trying to get something to go viral, you should not release it on Good Friday, when many people have already taken off for vacation. You should consider the month, week of the month, day of the week, and time of the day in which to first post it to get the maximum views by your target audience w/the 1st 24 hrs. Graduations, summer vacations, holidays, moves away to college in Aug, etc. are all things to be factored in.

You should also make a list of all the big international and national pro-gun forums/blogs (AR15.com; The High Road; Tactical Forums; Warriortalk; GlockTalk; etc.), assuming this has something to do w/pro-RKBA), to place announcements of the youtube posting immediately after posting it on youtube. You should write up the intro for those forums ahead of time. The forums may also influence when you decide to post the youtube. Depending upon the subject, you may branch out to outdoors, hunting, camping, LE, mil., etc. forums.

without arguing for or against the significance of it or whether it will go viral, i'd just like to commend Andrew Mendez on the way he did this.
this is exactly how an ambush interview should be conducted. Andrew was unassuming, non-confrontational, humble, and deferential. he acted like he was uninformed but wanted to learn more, and preyed on the ego of the interviewee, by making him feel like an authority on the topic. he didn't betray the fact that he knows far more than the interviewee on the topic, and is vehemently opposed to his views. he just let the guy dig his own hole, even helped him a bit.

Your observation is mostly accurate.

I would say that if his questions weren't as leading, Andrew would have been completely inconspicuous. It might have been helpful if there were memorized scripted inquiries instead of being spontaneous- but he performed admirably nevertheless. A hidden camera might be helpful too- Im sure people would be more candid.

Youtube does not update view counts on certain types of videos automatically.
They admit that they routinely delay posting view counter updates until they have verified unique views, but there is no mention of how long they delay posting updates. It's just a way to stop videos like this from going viral which would expose more people to the information.
Someone else commented on how the video stalled. It happens a lot on videos dealing with similar subject matter, while mindless crap streams at high speed.

we should do both I can do the whole camera crew thing and someone can do hidden get the best of both worlds, I even have a tiny micro HD camera it looks like a car alarm remote and records to a micro SD card ( i would need to barrow a card cause I lost mine.) but think about it 3 cameras just from me plus others that will bring theres.

yes we would need hot chick for the questions.

She's got to be able to speak well though. She mustn't be like the "hot chicks" at my high school who could barely read.

EDIT: A few minutes after I posted it, this post now looks kind of sexist, as if I think that most women can't speak as well as most men. That's not what I meant, and I apologize if anyone got that impression. I was just thinking about the annoying young women at my high school with very bad English skills, for some reason.

EVERYTHING can always be better, nothing is perfect but like some one said for it to be viral has to be good timing.


One example would be this sort of incident. (What did you say, Mr. Bloomberg? I don't think I caught that...)

A old man protesting about something he doesn't really understand -_-, who would have thought the Brady campaign was anti-gun ;o ?

oaklander
04-23-2011, 1:22 AM
I went and looked at BRADY's videos.

http://www.youtube.com/user/BradyCampaign#g/u

With the exception of a couple that went viral (due to gun owners themselves), most people do not give a crap about Brady. If you go to their channel, you will see videos that have been there for a long time that only have a couple hundred views.

The one that WE did, as a "state-only" group - and which was not even part of a professional PR campaign - has already gained more views than 90 percent of theirs. That should give you an idea of how much people really give a shizzle about brizzle.

The point (and politicians need to see it), is that Brady is not even a "real" group. As I have pointed out, they are essentially a "front" for other groups. Their so-called supporters appear to be misguided and confused people, many of whom may be crime victims, and who appear to be used as Brady simply for "prop" value. Again, this group has a sick inner core. It's more obvious the more I think about it.

While they are somewhat of a threat, they are really nothing more than sick clowns.

This does not mean that we ignore them. But we are getting very close to the point where it will be idiotically easy to completely discredit them. Since I have a very solid background in PR, I am hoping that people will let me be one of the people to plan the actual "PR" topple.

The Calguns youtube channel exist, I have the password and user email in an email somewhere. We have zero vids, the Calguns news team, which I am actually part of was supposed to do something like that, but dont know what happened. I don't know if this would be considered something that would be something worthy.

Yup... and people in free states use that against us, when there are other states that have FAR more restrictive gun law. New York, Hawaii, Illinois.... Ya, I'd put California in the "top 5", but not in the "top 3"
We have no long gun registration, possession and use of high caps is not illegal, there are very few ammunition restrictions, we don't need a permit to own a gun, CCW is possible in most counties....

Yes, a huge lead, with high crime and little impact on criminals. The very proof that the Brady Campaign is a fraud. One that seeks to take the easy way out and attack the innocent. Just as in the nation's capital, criminals love gun control, because the good people that follow the law are guaranteed to be defenseless.

I've said before, I'm not the best shot with a rifle/pistol/shotgun...I don't understand all the "legal speak" well enough to even attempt a legal argument in front of a high school senior thinking about going to law school...but I'LL BE DAMNED if I let us look like cut-rate amateurs looking like we made our flyers, banners, etc. over a weekend with a trip to Michael's or Alin Party supply...
