Brady Campaign tips hand (yet again)

Though no surprise to many, the Brady Campaign has explicitly endorsed the view that firearms should be banned for self defense.

New York, NY – Jodie Foster, winner of two Academy Awards and one of the most respected actresses in the world, says in the September issue of More magazine that she believes it makes common sense to place reasonable restrictions on access to firearms.

She told More Contributor Margy Rochlin “Isn’t it possible that we all have that bit of insanity in us? That’s why I’m for gun control. Absolutely. Hunting, I get that – let’s protect hunting. But I don’t believe that people should have access to life-or-death situations at any emotional time in their life. I don’t really believe that a human being who feels [things] should have the option at their fingertips.”

There you have it, the reason the Brady Crowd supports DC's "common sense" self-defense-firearms ban (though they duck and weave a direct answer to the question) - is that using a firearm in a life-or-death situation is "too emotional."

This must be the same reason they support the recently enacted SanFran self-defense firearm ban.

Yet another data point against them.
