NRA on the Brady Campaign's Ad

The group’s new ad shows a young male shooter on a range, shooting a pistol at silhouette targets first depicting a young girl, then a series of other innocent citizens.

The imagery is meant to support the Brady assertion that, “large capacity ammunition magazines are designed to enable shooting mass numbers of people quickly and efficiently without reloading.” But in truth, the ad insults not just the intelligence of viewers, but also the good name of the millions of honest Americans who own such firearms and magazines. 

I'm not sure what they mean by, "they promote it with a despicable twist."

What's despicable about pointing out the fact that mass shooters like Loughner target innocent people? Isn't that the problem? Why would the NRA want to cover that up? What's "tasteless" about facing the hard facts and looking the truth right in the eye?

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.


  1. Mike Mike Mike...when will you figure out that a criminal who wants a gun to wreak havoc doesn't give one whit whether their gun is legal or not. I realize that Loughner bought his gun legally, but that was a screw-up on local law enforcement who knew Loughner was a mental case, but didn't put his name on the "don't sell to" list. Blame local law enforcement, not gun laws.

  2. Mike, Does this make sense to you?

    Blame local law enforcement, not gun laws.

    The gun control laws we need are totally lacking in many places. So, how about if I blame you and the other biased gun owners who resist them. If it weren't for you guys, after all, we'd have proper gun control in the US.
