The Brady Campaign
I enjoy hypocritical stories.
On their website's FAQ section the Brady Campaign states in response to the question about whether they are a gun ban organization, "Brady believes that a safer America can be achieved without banning guns."
So one has to ask why they are so opposed to the DC court simply striking down a gun ban in Parker v. DC.
Here is Paul Helmke:
The 2-1 decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Parker v. District of Columbia striking down the District of Columbia's handgun law is judicial activism at its worst. By disregarding nearly seventy years of U.S. Supreme Court precedent, two Federal judges have negated the democratically-expressed will of the people of the District of Columbia and deprived this community of a gun law it enacted thirty years ago and still strongly supports.
