Thread: Brady Center sues Georgia town over gun law

  1. #21
    Nelson, Ga. attacked by Brady Center for no real reason.
    Georgia town passes law requiring citizens to own guns and ammo - U.S. News
    Kennesaw, Ga. Gun law on the books since 1982 and held to be constitutional by the Federal Court.
    Kennesaw, where everyone is armed by law - FT.com
    It seems both of these were undertaken a form of civil disobedience to make a point.


    "The American Civil Liberties Union challenged Kennesaw’s law as unconstitutional, but the federal court let it stand, although the city did add a clause exempting conscientious objectors, criminals, the mentally disabled and people who could not afford a gun."

    This fact will basically resolve any challenge by the Brady Center and make them look like idiots we all know them to be.

  3. The Brady Campaign

    That actually pretty much DEFINES the Brady Campaign. Remember, he was shot with a .22LR REVOLVER wielded by a KNOWN nutjob. But go ahead, BLAME the revolver. After all, using some common sense and trying to do something... oh, I don't know... like maybe fix the Mental Health system so that people who are considered a current threat might be helped/prevented from committing violent acts? I mean, if people had an option to deal with a current mental crisis and then, once they had worked things out, could get their guns/concealed carry rights reinstated don't you think a lot of potentially violent or suicidal people might get the help they need. The important thing is to ensure that just because you had an issue you aren't losing your second amendment rights forever. I think that, and other factors, lead up to crazy stuff happening. The main thing the most people ignore about these shootings is that, while they are busy blaming the guns, the following factors were in play;

    1. The vast majority of the mass shootings or attempted mass shootings were done by people with KNOWN mental health issues
    2. With the exception of the Giffords shooting almost every major mass shooting or attempted mass shooting was attempted at Gun Free Zones (AKA Target Rich Environments)

    But is THAT a factor that the Brady Campaign considers? Hell no, why use common sense when moral (but uninformed) outrage should be wielded like Excalibur to (clumsily) attempt to crush law abiding citizens rights and free the criminals of the fear that one of their victims might actually SHOOT them if they attempt to rob, rape, or harm them! After all, that criminal is the result of a horrible childhood... they didn't get a pony!

    The Brady Campaign... What a bunch of asshats...

    According to the article one can 'conscientiously' bow out of the requirement. So, the question remains, is it really being forced upon them? If one says, "I'm opposed to owning a firearm", then one does not need to own it. I'm not sure why the man they used as the example didn't just say that, rather then shelling out $700 and then complain about it.

    I also don't get why any town would create a law that says, 'you must get a firearm, unless of course you don't want to'. Did I read this correctly?

    I have a hard time understanding why the Brady Center cares about anything. I think they just look for an opportunity to argue because it gives them a chance to yell, swear and make death threats.

    I haven't the time to read all the commentary, so please excuse any apparent gaps in my analysis. If, in this case, Brady is the plaintiff, how is Brady injuried or damaged by this ordinance? Or if Brady a self-appointed initiator of a class action, who are the parties to the action, and how are the parties injured or damaged?

    Yeah, it was largely symbolic, like a resolution in Congress.

    I don't want to force a single liberal to own a gun if they do not want to, then again I expect them to shut the hell up about me wanting one.
