CHECK THIS CRAP OUT.... Now they're saying that they need help to DEFEND our gun laws?

Dear Mark,

I'm simply aghast!

In a 2-1 decision in Parker v. District of Columbia, right-wing activist judges on a Federal Appeals Court recently overturned Washington D.C.'s long-standing restrictions on handguns based on their twisted view of the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution while ignoring more than 60 years of precedent — a decision that endangers America's gun laws coast-to-coast.

This case could land before the U.S. Supreme Court within the next 6 months and each month brings a tidal wave of work to fight this terrible decision. Simply put: we need your support today!

Please click here to make a commitment of $5 or more per month. This affordable amount will automatically be charged to your credit card each month — unless you decide to change or cancel your monthly commitment.

Your monthly gift will be a steady source of income that will help us:

Convene well-recognized experts in constitutional law and history to develop the most powerful arguments against the Parker ruling;
Assemble a comprehensive library of books, treatises, articles, court decisions and legal briefs refuting the "individual rights" view of the Second Amendment and make this library available to lawyers nationwide and on the Internet; and
Launch a major public education campaign including full-page ads in major newspapers and a new Brady Gun Law Defense Fund website. We'll also organize lawyers and law professors to write newspaper op-eds and letters to the editor to create a constant drumbeat of criticism of this decision.


This battle — to its very core — is the most important battle we have ever waged. We need your help today — your monthly support — to build a strong Brady Gun Law Defense Fund to save America's gun laws.

It looks to me like they're campaigning to be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

It is a little bit fun to see how hysterical they get. I wonder if we were the same way on the eve of the Clinton AW ban?

Anyway, if you can stand the guy and the incessant whining and outright falsehoods, Mark Karlin's "Gun Guys" is worth an email susbscription.

Here is one of my favorites. My email response to him is below...

Howdy Partners,

The NRA is very good at misdirection-- try to confront them on one issue, and they'll answer with a completely different one.

»Looking for Presidential Candidates Ready to Stop the Violence (http://www.gunguys.com/?p=1873): Another election is in the early stages and it's already clear that gun violence is going to be an issue.

Commentary (continued)

The central issue of gun violence is that of public safety. Too many guns hurts and kills our citizens, and causes health care costs to go through the roof. As a matter of safety, we simply need to put a hold on the flood of firearms in this country.

But don't tell the NRA that. They've changed the conversation about firearms to one about "rights." When confronted with the problem of dying Americans, they refer to an unclear, centuries old document, and use it as a shield against responsibility. They're great at misdirection, and that's one of the main reasons we still have a gun problem in this country.

When firearms dealers sell hundreds of firearms directly to criminals, instead of holding those dealers responsible for their actions, the NRA says only to blame the shooter, and to enforce the laws we have (when the laws we have are hardly sufficient).

When the conversation is about giving police the tools they need to confront firearms, the NRA says the police have too much authority. And yet when Mayor Bloomberg in New York is forced to use his own investigators to shut down gun dealers, the NRA claims he's going behind cops' backs.

But the NRA can't escape the facts: thousands of Americans are dying, and that's why the majority of Americans want stronger gun laws. No matter what spin the NRA puts on the issue, no matter what "rights" talking points they hammer into the brains of camo-clad militia nutcases, and no matter how they try to change the conversation away from the issue of public safety, one fact keeps returning. Americans are dying, all around the country. And we need to make that stop.

My response to Mr. Karlin:

Sir,

The Constitution of the United States of America is an "unclear centuries old document"? Shame on you. Would you tell the ACLU the same thing when they argue against suspensions of Habeas Corpus and infringements on the rights to free speech?

I find your line of reasoning reprehensible. I'll forgo donating to you this year and encourage my friends and colleagues to do the same.

Have a nice day.

They don't have a forum 'cause not enough actual people care enough to check out the progress of the anti-gunners this week...

Too much Oprah to watch...
