Panhandling time again...

The Brady Bunch has heard the latest case the SCOTUS is going to decide on, and has decided that they need more money, NOW! They are already e-mailing everyone.

Just minutes ago, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to take what could be the most significant Second Amendment case in our country's history.

Thanks to your support, your Brady legal team had already begun preparing for this announcement, but now our lawyers have swung into high gear to prepare our "friend of the court" brief.

We have a tidal wave of work to do in the weeks ahead and we need your help now.

This fight is so critical that we need to raise $50,000 by November 30. And since your gift will be going to our Brady Gun Law Defense Fund, it will be fully tax deductible!

We need your help today to build a strong Brady Gun Law Defense Fund to protect America’s gun laws. Please give today.

I fail to see why they always seem to need more money; and why are "gifts" tax deductible? Sending money to the NRA is not deductible, so why should it be for the anti-gun crowd?
The Brady Bunch is always telling us what the second amendment is supposed to mean (according to them); now that the SCOTUS has finally been backed into a corner into making a ruling on it, the hoplophobes all have their panties in a bunch.
If you have any doubts as to what the writers of the amendment were talking about, read below:

"No man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
-- Thomas Jefferson.

"The great object is, that every man be armed ... Every one who is able may have a gun."
--Patrick Henry

"That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms ... "
--Samuel Adams

Is that clear enough for you?

Good luck! The wording SCOTUS chose sounds pretty favourable but it would limit the scope of the ruling quite a bit i.e. we won't be seeing CCW in DC even if this goes our (your) way.

I think that's clear... lemme try.

So, that's for the militia, right?


So, "...right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms..." really means it's a right of the people? Wow. I'm so glad that a bazillion tax dollars will go towards clearing that up.


Yeah. Loud and clear.

Of course the Brady Bunch is looking for money... It turns out that their "membership" numbers are based almost completely off the number of people subscribed to their mailing list. And just how many of those are pro-rights activists just trying to keep tabs on the morons?

It is rather sad how something so cut-and-dried can be such a problem for some people... but I guess when you are irrational enough to disallow people from exercising their most basic inherent rights (such as self defense), there really is no accounting.
