Washington, DC –-( notion that lemmings deliberately hasten their demise by rushing into the sea may be a myth, but the anti-Second Amendment group and its spokesmen really are scurrying through a series of blunders that may hasten their steady march to irrelevancy.

In 2008, in District of Columbia v. Heller, the group's two theories about the Second Amendment were rejected by the Supreme Court, one of them by five justices and the other by all nine. In 2009, they tried, with no success, to frighten America about tourists carrying guns for protection in national parks.

This year, they've insulted their most powerful ally, President Obama, for not setting aside the economy, the war, and his social agenda to push for gun control legislation Congress does not support. They've given the states their worst “Brady grades” ever, even though violent crime continues to decrease. And, they've badgered the Starbucks Coffee Company for allowing customers to legally carry firearms in its stores.

This week, though, Brady lawyer Dennis Henigan—the world's most prolific advocate of the legal theories the Supreme Court sent to the shredder two years ago—further diminished the group's credibility by claiming “The evidence is overwhelming that the ‘shall-issue' concealed carry laws have been a disaster for public safety. . . . [T]he scholarly research shows that the laws generally have been ‘associated with uniform increases in crime.'”

If he had just pushed himself away from the computer after his first four words, he would have been much better off. There's “evidence,” all right, and it's certainly “overwhelming.” Today, there are 36 states with “shall issue” laws—an all-time high. Sixty-three percent of Americans live in “shall issue” states, five million Americans have carry permits, and two states don't even require a permit to carry concealed.

“Uniform increases in crime”? The nation's violent crime rate is at a 35-year low.

Since adopting “shall issue” laws, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Virginia have had unprecedented decreases in violent crime ranging from 26 to 53 percent.

Henigan also claimed to have 33,000 signatures on his anti-Starbucks online petition, which can be signed by anyone with a computer anywhere in the world. But in a country of five million carry permit holders, up to 80 million gun owners, and 300 million people, Brady's petition and $1.70 will get you …

    1. This article says it all. There is really no need for me to comment on it except to vent, so here it goes. The Brady Loons are beginning to resemle the school bully that just had his @$$ handed to him and now the whole school body is laughing at him as he walks away in shame with his head down. This is awesome.

    2. Do not try to twist anything I have said please. I am a man. I am a decendent of Adam and subject to his original sin. I am a follower of Jesus the Christ who is not a son of Adam but the only begotten son of God the father of all men. I am guilty of the least of the sins inumerated in the Ten Commandments which are written on the hearts of all men. This simply means that I am, just like each and every one of you out there, guilty of the whole law and worthless in the eyes of my God. Gods law does not tell me I have to allow the thief to steal from me. It does not tell me I have to allow someone to take the life of or imbitter the life of me or any one else. Therefore I am a man who obeys Gods law imperfectly but through Christ I am forgiven the infractions I cannot stop doing because I am a man and of man. Protect your freedoms jealously. Next to life in heaven they are the most precous you have. Without those freedoms you will not even have your our God without death and destruction just as it has been always in the world.

    3. Hi folks. Most of the clowns would be very surprised if they knew just how many have and still do, have always carried concieled. The vast maj. of them have not had to do more than reveil it to stop a crime and still do. Millions on millions of crimes have been prevented that never go on record. If the clowns ever had an idea about this and had the facts they would have a heart attack and die. Just as the non law abiding will ignore the law, there are many normally law abiding that ignore the so called law because they are NOT going to be a victim just because of some idiotic law the crazy, the brainwashed, the destroyers of freedom would force down our throats. The right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness is guaranteed absolutely by the right to self defense of those rights expressed in the 2nd amendment. This is what the Constitution as written is all about. Basically it says that every person In the US has the right to life from conception untill accident or nature ends it. they have the right to live where they wish, do what they wish, believe what they wish, own what they wish and speak what they wish so long as they do not infringe upon the rights of others while exercising their own right. I will fight and die for that principal. Try to infringe on my right to do so and I will kill you. We also have the right to pursue happiness whatever it is so long as that pursuit does not infringe on the rights of another. Over all of those rights is another God given law of nature. The right to defend your rights, your life, your property, your liberty, your loved ones and your neighbor by any means available. This is what it MEANS to be an AMERICAN CITIZEN. Try to take these rights from us AMERICAN CITIZENS AND WE WILL KILL YOU. There it is folks. The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. This is given you with love by a sheepdog who loves his country, his God and his people. Thus it has been for every since this wonderful country came into being. It is unique among Governments during all time for this reason. Do not allow the liars and thieves we call polititions take it from us.

    4. Sorry for laughing so much, guys.

      The Brady bunch has been irrelevant for years, but fortunately, fewer and fewer people have been paying attention. I think that more of us “gun nuts” have been listening to what they say, and fewer of the rest of the crowd have been listening to them.

      This would be like the wolf talking to the sheepdog instead of talking to the sheep. Eventually neither one is listening, and the wolf just slinks off and wonders where his next meal is coming from.

    5. Irrelevant is right!! The entire left will be irrelevant now that the whole world sees Starbucks (and others) ignoring Brady’s bullying as toothless and unAmerican. Others will follow Starbucks.

      The important thing to look forward to is the idea that the entire left will be associated with the cruelty that is Gun Control and will see how irrelevant PC is and a lot of other similarly abisive excursions away from liberty.

      If someone assesses what the left has gotten us – and they just might if they get provoked enough – they’ll declare all of the left as irrelevant and vote same. Education, PC, the environment, taxation, health care, all of it.

      The left IS irrelevant.
