Brady Bad Apples: Woefully short on information.

Brady Bad Apples

I’ll come back to the circled portion in a bit.

If you can muster enough stomach to go into the Brady Campaign site and look for specific info on the dealers, don’t bother: There isn’t any. The best they do is give you an infographic:

I wanted to see which were the 9 culprits engaged in giving away guns to gang members and mass killers in Miami, but no luck there. In fact, I am not the only one who wanted the info but also followers of the Brady Campaign Facebook page asked for the names. So far, Brady is not forthcoming.

Now let’s get back to the first picture. The source for the information circled in res is from a Washington Post article. But not just any article but one in a series titled “The Secret Life of Guns” which was supposed to be the Media’s back up to the Administration renewed push for “sensible Gun Laws.” If your memory is good, you are already laughing, if not allow me to remind you that in that series came this daring series of articles accusing gun shops in states bordering Mexico of supplying “assault weapons” to the Mexican cartels. Yup, that is the great Washington Post investigation that lead to the discovery by Gun Bloggers that it was the ATF who was supplying Cartels with the guns by forcing the now-despised gun shops to sell to people everybody knew were Straw Purchasers.

So basically Brady is “getting” and passing along information that came from the same people who saw nothing wrong with Operation Fast & Furious, the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and God knows how many thousands of Mexicans with guns that the ATF had no problem with letting loose in the wrong hands. And a reminder that we still do not know the whole story but just a wee bit sample from a few choice gun stores in Arizona. We still do not know if New Mexico and Texas were in the mess and there have been rumors that Florida is also in the mix.

How frigging desperate for relevance can the Brady Campaign be to recycle political nuclear waste?

  1. Oakland California has no gun shops. The city rove them out over a decade ago by taxing them at a different rate than other businesses. If someone is selling it is out of their home, but I still think the City Council and PD would do their best to shut them down.

  2. What’s the average “time-to-crime” of guns sold? Isn’t it something like 13+ years?

    If so, there’s a better-than-good chance the “ten worst” correlates with the “ten oldest” gun dealers. The ones who’ve been around a while, and consequently have sold the most guns.

    Once again – compounded by the fact that Brady isn’t releasing the names of the “ten worst” – they’re only giving the portions of the story that make themselves look relevant.

  3. Indianapolis was also targeted by the “gun walking” operation. I don’t have the link at hand, but a number of Indy dealers were contacted by the ATF about “suspicious sales” — and as soon as the dealers pointed out that the ATF ordered them to complete those sales, the ATF dropped the matter.
