    So we go from six out of nine in favor of a ban, to eight out of nine opposing it in some form. They don't mention names. Any guesses as to who the fencesitter supporting a more narrowly defined ban might be? Ken Salazar?

    Their not going to come up with a New AWB :) Their going to tag a new AWB
    to some other bill. :cuss: It's going to get dropped in the middle of something
    for the FEMA budget or some other high profile bill and no one will notice until
    the 11th hour.

    I don't think that is likely since:

    A) Tagging such amendments onto budget legislation is prohibited in one house and difficult to do in the other.
    B) They don't have the votes to do it (thus this article).

    They have seen the voter backlash from this legislation. It is highly unlikely to come up again IMO.

    There are NRA staff folke who comb keywords out of every bill.

    You can specifically watch any of the usual suspects for Schumerisms.

    IMHO, What the Bradyites will attempt in 2005, are multiple conflicting State level AWBs, to set the stage for a future federal AWB to clean up the "problem".

    Isn't this the exact opposite of that Brady Bunch article from the other day? Yes I know Brady loves to stretch the truth far past its breaking point, I just think it's funny.

    Yah gotta love the Brady idiots

    On their web site they have, side by side, a cartoon about the evil GWB letting the AWB lapse and being in the pocket of the NRA right next to a letter describing the "wisdom" of GWB for not falling into the hands of the extremist gun lobby.

    They even credit his election win to adopting "their mainstream position" on gun control, excuse me gun safety (their latest buzz phrase).

    These cowards won't even acknowledge the number of members they have, or more correctly that they don't have.

    I wonder if 501 C-3's are vulnerable to a FOIA request?

    That's well within the realm of possibility, although curiously, Salazar owns firearms himself. I heard that from a fellow who sold firearms to both Salazar brothers.

    Ken Salazar is the fence sitter.

    I'm pretty sure of that.

    Brady PAC Info

    The Brady Campaign is actually a 501c4 group.

    Financial info on their associated PAC (who gives, who gets, and how much) can be found at Open Secrets.

    the original list

    The first list of Brady supporters is what Brady called the "NRA Blacklist".

    At the time they were still HCI (Handgun Control Inc.)

    The list was people and companies that gave time or money to HCI.
