BradyWatch: hilarious hypocrisy alert

The Brady Campaign’s Dennis Hennigan:

The NRA needs gun owners to believe that the debate is not “really about” such reforms as background checks at gun shows, but rather is about a sustained attack on a personal possession that has great practical and symbolic significance for millions of Americans and is, ultimately, about the values of those gun-owning Americans.

Dennis Hennigan’s recommendations to the Obama Administration:

Congress should enact strong legislation that closes the loopholes in the previous assault weapons statute and restricts civilian ownership of other weapons that were originally designed for military use
[…]
High-capacity ammunition magazines and armor-piercing bullets should be similarly restricted.

The jokes practically write themselves.
