from their website:

ABOUT STOP 2

Everyday in the United States, 80 people die in shootings associated with "suicide, homicide, and unintentional injuries." Ten of those who die are children. The epidemic of firearm violence affects us all. Health care providers are natural messengers of safety/health information and have the daily opportunity to speak to patients/clients and their families about guns they are likely to come in contact with in their own homes or in the homes of relatives or friends they visit.

Steps To Prevent Firearm Injury In The Home (STOP 2), launched by the Center in 1998, is a counseling tool that prepares health care providers across a wide range of disciplines (nurses, social workers, psychologists, health educators, counselors, etc.) to talk with patients/clients and their families about the dangers of keeping a gun in the home. The key concept is to assist the user in incorporating gun violence prevention in their routine injury prevention counseling.

Assisting the Brady Center in developing these materials was a technical advisory committee representing the following organizations:

American Academy of Family Physicians
American Medical Student Association/Foundation
Association of Black Psychologists
Indian Health Service
The Handgun Epidemic Lowering Plan (HELP) Network
National Association of Black Social Workers
National Coalition of Hispanic Health and Human Services Organizations
Organization of Chinese Americans
University of Maryland School of Nursing

The program is delivered in the form of a kit that contains information about toddlers, children, preteens, adults, and senior citizens - the entire family. STOP 2 also contains information about minority/diverse populations.

The "toddlers, children, et Al." language in the last sentence contains a link to the following "further info":

FACT SHEETS ON GUN VIOLENCE

Click on one of the titles below to learn more about gun violence facts.

* Guns in the Home

* Children & Guns: A Lethal Combination
* Guns in Our Nation's Schools
* Firearms & Youth Suicide
* Women & Guns Firearms
* Deaths in the United States, 1981-1998
* Hispanics/Latinos and Gun Violence.

Here is what is in the Brady kit:

WHAT'S IN THE KIT AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The kit is FREE of charge!

The STOP 2 Kit includes:

* A Health Care Provider Reference Manual

Nahh... that would be too much I think. Targets seems reasonable, but wetpack just seems like they'd sic their henchmen on me.

It should read, "No Rights were violated in the making of this picture."

I am at a loss of words. To pass their opinions off as facts and then skew the numbers to make themselves right is neglagent.

that bottom one should be forwarded to the proper authorities here in Florida so that we (as a state) can respectfully sue the Brady Bunch for lost tourism revenues (and related taxes) due to slander and fraudelent defamation (I think that's the wrong way to put it though).

"A new law in the Sunshine State authorizes nervous or frightened residents to use deadly force."

Now.... living in the Sunshine State.... and being fairly familiar with the use of deadly force and the laws relating to it here - I've never read anywhere that it's ok if you feel nervous or frightened to use deadly force.

To save on postage, when you mail your "targets" back to them make sure to use one of the Brady Bunch's postage paid envelopes. To make sure that it doesn't blow away in the wind, put a brick in there as well.

I think that a ordering 100 a week might be a tad more costly then having them send me a couple thousand all at once. And yes, sending them a random number of pennies (never more then 5 and always Canadian or other currency from other countries) in their postage paid envelopes.

Now all I need is name. Hmmmm... Jeffrey Cooper ?? Robert Heinlein ?? Marion Morrison (John Wayne's real name) ?? Bob Brister ?? Oleg Volk ?? j/k :D

There's also some vacant lots down the street from me at work. I think those addresses need a batch or two of posters and flyers......:evil:

In order to better know my enemy, I signed up for the Brady e-mail alerts. This is the first one I've ever recieved wherein I'm not asked for any money,

A Call to Action from Paul Helmke
President, Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the
Brady Campaign with its network of Million Mom March Chapters
Dear Ken,

Following are excerpts taken from a very moving speech given by Paul Helmke at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. Please read Paul's remarks and follow the links to view more and help spread the word.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------



View highlights from Paul's speech at the National Press Club.
Email this speech to your Congressional delegation.

There were 32 people murdered at Virginia Tech.

That number, in and of itself, was not extraordinary. Every day in our country, on average, about 32 people are murdered with guns. When you add suicides and unintentional shootings, the death toll from guns in America each day is about 80 people. And for every death, there are another two or three seriously injured.

The gun epidemic is our monthly 9/11, our weekly Katrina, a continuing Iraq war on our streets and in our schools. It is our daily Virginia Tech. Yet, we don't focus on this threat until we get a Virginia Tech.

And then we allow our political leaders to slowly and deliberately delay, until we are all busy with other challenges. And then our leaders let us down, content that we're no longer paying attention.

To say that we are sorry that these shootings happened is not enough. We should be ashamed all of us should be ashamed that we have allowed this to happen. We must all say to the victims at Virginia Tech and their families, and to the families of gun violence victims every day: we have failed you. All of us. We can do better.

What can we do about gun violence?

There are many things we can do to prevent gun violence. Here are three policy proposals:

1. We must comprehensively and effectively apply the Brady background check system, so no one who we want to prohibit from buying guns can legally buy one.
Effective background checks would have stopped the Virginia Tech killer from buying these guns.

2. We must reduce access to weaponry that is not for sport and not for self-defense.
Had Congress and the President not allowed the assault weapon ban to expire, the killer may not have been able to obtain the high capacity magazines he used in his assault.

3. We must give our police and federal law enforcement the tools and resources they need to fight gun crimes, including illegal gun trafficking and corrupt gun dealers.
New technologies, such as microstamping and other ballistic identification systems, might have allowed authorities to identify the Virginia Tech shooter earlier, before his second, most deadly, rampage.
Gun violence prevention should not be controversial. The overwhelming majority of Americans believe that gun violence is a huge problem. And most Americans believe that we should have tougher gun laws. Most Americans, including most gun owners, support the policy proposals I've suggested.

We intend to hold our political leaders accountable if they fail to take action, Democrats and Republicans alike.

There are other things that we, at the Brady Center and the Brady Campaign with our Million Mom March Chapters, are going to do. To start, we need a national conversation about our gun problem. We need to ask elected officials and each other: what are you going to do about it?

All Americans have the responsibility to join this national conversation, and become part of the solution to the gun violence problem.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can help build the national dialogue by emailing your Congressional delegation a link to Paul's speech - ask them "What are YOU going to do about gun violence?" and let them know that doing nothing is not an option.

And look for email alerts from us about specific gun violence prevention legislation that will be coming before Congress. More to come . . .

Sincerely,

Sarah Brady, Chair

I found the anti-florida poster funny. They're warning people to use caution in arguing with people on the freeways, but not saying anything about not arguing at all (i.e. having the common sense to walk away). So they advocate the use of violence (even verbal) so long as it's used with caution? ***??!?

I'm ordering some... Under my seldom used radio-comedy production company name. Maybe they'll ship extra if they think I'm important. Regardless, any of the junk mail goes into the air as smoke, just to put them at odds with Green Peace.

Anyone have any idea who's bankrolling this?

YeahbuhWHAT?!?!?

That's...interesting. The Brady's say they need to go after weapons that aren't for sport or self-defense.

I'm shocked that they included self-defense.

But....if not for those two reasons, what are they gonna ban now??? Souped-up single shot .22 target guns? Hmmm....:"fiftys" of course.

But didn't Cho just use a bunch of BAN-ERA 10-rounders? Or did I hear that wrong?

Then again, maybe they're going my McCarthy's NEW definition of "high-cap" as anything that holds over **SIX** rounds!

HmmmmMMMMmmm...wonder how long someone could order ONE poster/booklet at a time, every few days, before you realized you were just trying to run their postage budget dry? ;)

While it is funny to order such stuff under pseudonyms etc, I actually want to be on their list, just in order to see what everyone *else* on their list is getting in the mailbox.

And if they ask me for money, I'll send them a letter requesting money from them ;)

I also noticed that the brady's math is fubar as well. In the info posted on their upside-down flag on the revolver poster, I came up with these numbers;
11,344 (people killed) ÷ 366 (days-leap year)= 30.99 people per day

OR

from the text concerning 80 people per day from "http://www.bradycenter.org/stop2/"]http://www.bradycenter.org/stop2/
80 (people killed) X 366 (still leap year)= 29,280

those numbers aren't even in the same zip code.

May 9, 2007, 04:23 AM
Doing a bit of research on the numbers presented on that poster skinnyguy. They seem very strange (no suprise, I know, but thought I would point it out):

The New Zealand statistic states 5 people murdered by guns (whatever that means) for the year 2004. According to the New Zealand police website, there were 86 homicides in New Zealand that year:http://www.police.govt.nz/service/statistics/2004/calendar/stats-national-20041231.pdf

Various sources (wikipedia and http://guncontrol.org.nz/) pin down the percentage of homicides committed with a firearm to be around 13-15%. Doing simple math, that ought to mean that between eleven and thirteen homicides were committed with firearms in New Zealand in the year 2004.

Mightn't the Bradys be cooking their numbers a bit?



I also noticed that the brady's math is fubar as well. In the info posted on their upside-down flag on the revolver poster, I came up with these numbers;
11,344 (people killed) ÷ 366 (days-leap year)= 30.99 people per day

80 (people killed) X 366 (still leap year)= 29,280

those numbers aren't even in the same zip code.


One is total gun deaths in the US (usually around 30,000 yearly), the other is murders by "Brady Methodology," which, if it's as screwed up as the numbers for New Zealand, is something like total gun deaths minus the number of hairs on Robert Mugabe's toes multiplied by the ratio of vowels to syllables in the American National Anthem when it's sung in Malagasy by drunken lumberjacks.

I always thought it was interesting that Reagan was also shot that day, along with Brady, but he didn't go on a rampage about gun control. Wouldn't you think (the president) could have made a great case for sweeping reform and new laws to control guns. He didn't because he understood what happened and why. Besides, he was a Cowboy!!

The Bradys cooking their numbers?? I'm aghast that you would think such a thing, I mean you KNOW that when how many hundred kids died in a bathtub in 2004, it's because dear old daddy was downstairs cleaning his gun!!!! So, it's a GUN MURDER!!!

Besides, intensive research has shown that 97.48% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

Still waiting to get mine that I ordered on Monday. If they were serious about their "goals" you'd think they'd have better customer service. :evil: :neener: :scrutiny: ;) :D

Just ordered 200, 200, 20, 20. This is too funny. Used my real name and my Postal Annex shipping address - which looks like a business. My wife says we can always use some targets.:D

These people are just plain evil... :banghead:

I just ordered some.

Starting small: 20, 25, 20, 25 and I don't even remember what ethnicity I checked.....


Wonder if they've found this thread yet....

And if they find this thread what will they do? Cancel all the bulk orders? Review each on a case by case basis?

Unless this whole thing is some sort of elaborate trap, this is a win win situation.

Who wants to bet the phone calls and letters seeking donations come before the posters do?

I ordered a couple of posters the day this thread started. Thus far, I got nuttin.

It seems that they are now charging $10 for shipping...

HA HA! Looks like you guys created a little pain for them. Payback for waiting periods :D

two issues. The NZ numbers. I know in the UK, a 'killed by firearm' result only enters the official database when the killer is convicted. Unsolved crimes don't get counted.

oh, I didn't see the limit on orders, otherwise I'd say, pay the $10 and order 2000 of em

Nope.

And I ordered a reasonable amount, too. Like just one pack of the big stuff, and two packs of the little stuff.

Nope. It was just a bunch of dreamy eyed promises.... No surprise there!

Zip, Nada, Nothing. I also ordered a reasonable amount (one pack of a couple different items.)

I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that the Brady's lied to me...........

I read in another thread they now charge shipping. And they want you to give them more personal information.

Coming up on a year since I've ordered mine. I don't think they bought it.
