Brady Campaign on San Fran gun ban
The Brady Campaign has issued a press release proclaiming triumph: "The San Francisco referendum, Sarah Brady said this morning, "sends a very loud message from American urban voters. They are saying the gun violence problem is not going to go away if we don't do something about it. The extreme gun lobby worked very hard to try to defeat the measure, and they got trounced."
Uh... Brady's been trying to portray itself as a supporter of reasonable, moderate, gun laws. But it apparently regards a measure to confiscate all handguns, and forbid future transfers (purchases, inheritance, whatever) of rifles and shotguns as something only "the extreme gun lobby" would oppose... That seems a rather strange definition of "extreme" and "moderate." Unless... no, it couldn't be. I was about to say they were lying.
Its been said that liberalism is a mental illness. They certainly oppose freedom of choice whether to arm oneself against a perceived threat. They have always had the freedom to not do so. Now San Francisco is more dangerous. I suggest we don't spend money there accordingly.

As for the Virginia race, which the Brady Campaign touts as a victory, Governor-elect Kaine has promised NOT to pass any new gun laws (as did current Governor Warner).
How is that a victory for the gun control crowd? Unless Sarah Brady knows something we don't...
