    Sunday, November 30 marks 15 years since President Bill Clinton signed the Brady Bill after an eight-year legislative struggle. Since the bill became law, more than 1.6 million criminals, stalkers and court-adjudicated mentally ill persons have been stopped from purchasing a firearm.



    The Brady Center will issue an informational report Sunday morning on the law. The report, called Brady Background Checks: 15 Years of Saving Lives, details the Brady Law's long record of success.


    "This is a happy anniversary, but a reminder that we need to do more," said Sarah Brady, Chair of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.


    "Every day, Brady criminal background checks help save lives, reduce gun crime, and keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of dangerous people," said Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Center.


    "Though just one of a handful of federal gun laws on the books, Americans can take pride in the Brady Law as a prime example of how strong gun laws work to protect our communities and our families," Helmke said. "But while we celebrate the Brady Law's huge success, we also must remember that too many sales - from so-called 'private sellers' at gun shows, through classified ads and by word of mouth - still don't require background checks," Helmke said.


    The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence is a national non-profit organization working to reduce the tragic toll of gun violence in America, through education, research, and legal advocacy. The programs of the Brady Center complement the legislative and grassroots mobilization of its sister organization, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence with its dedicated network of Million Mom March Chapters.

    Too bad that this was released to their useful fool that does not have a comment capability.

    "Though just one of a handful of federal gun laws on the books, Americans can take pride in the Brady Law as a prime example of how strong gun laws work to protect our communities and our families," Helmke said.
    Yes, just one of the handful of federal gun laws among the estimated 22,000 such laws but the one that must be celebrated and internationally.

    Safety is the first act of security theater, the theater of the absurd. It is the tyrant's tool because no one can be against safety.

    A happy anniversary would be the Brady Bill being repealed, Sarah Brady stripped of her citizenship, and sending her off to live with cannibals in the south Pacific. I'm sure she'd feel right at home there.

    Yeap, sounds to me like 15 years of total failure. Oh, but the Liberal idiots have always celebrated failure, haven't they?
