The Brady Campaign is now finally admitting that they would like to see a total confiscation of firearms.
In a surprising turn of events today the Brady Campaign issued the following press statement through email.
In light of the recent events at Sandy Hook along with the rampant gun violence seen through out America we think the time has finally come for American’s to lay down their arms.
There is no need for any type of bullet spewing machine in this day and age. One has cell phones and can easily call the police if trouble should arise. Guns only serve as a tool to harm innocents, including the young man just trying to get money to support his habit.
It is for this reason we support the acts proposed in Congress and would like to see the government take the arms of the American people if they are not willing to lay them down voluntarily. Any person who would own a firearm is not an American, but a terrorist who wishes harm and violence upon them.
This is an extreme change in position of the past years where repeatedly the Brady Campaign would insist over and over than no one was out to take anyone’s firearms. That the only changes they sought were “common sense” and would aid in keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals.
This press statement however has not indicated how this action will improve or change their perspective relevance in the current fight on gun control.
I will post more information as it comes in.
