Let the Gloating Commence

From the Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke:
We've lost the battle on what the Second Amendment means. Seventy-five percent of the public thinks it's an individual right. Why are we arguing a theory anymore? We are concerned about what we can do practically."
This doesn't mean they've actually learned their lesson though (or even think they were wrong in the first place), from Brady Campaign Attorney Dennis Henigan:
Universal background checks don't affect the right of self-defense in the home. Banning a super dangerous class of weapons, like assault weapons, also would not adversely affect the right of self-defense in the home. Curbing large volume sales doesn't affect self-defense in the home.
With strategies like that, I look forward to future legal battles with the Brady Campaign and other Joyce Foundation funded programs. They do have a few points:
But given that McCain stood by his support for closing "the gun-show loophole" during a recent speech to the N.R.A., the Brady Campaign president hopes that new gun restrictions can make headway regardless of who wins in November.
McCain is not a stalwart conservative with regards to gun control. He never has been. On the other hand, Barack Obama was one the Board of the Joyce Foundation for 8 years. The Joyce Foundation is the answer to the question "Where do all these gun control groups get their funding from?" When you look at the vast left-wing gun control "conspiracy," Barack Obama was one of the people holding its purse strings. Almost anyone else would be better in comparison.
