Gun Control Group Gets a New Disguise

Published

on

Gun controllers are re-branding.

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the U.S.’s oldest gun control lobby, has changed its name to Brady as part of its rebranding efforts.

The gun control advocacy group announced this new rebranding strategy at an event celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Brady bill, which laid the first step to creating a federal gun registry.

Brady’s rebranding strategy coincides with the Democratic-controlled House’s move to vote Wednesday on universal gun registration for all firearms purchases.

With Democrats in control, this would be the first gun control bill to be voted out of at least one chamber of Congress since the Clinton era.

Brady traces its origins back to the National Council to Control Handguns, which was established in 1974 as the first prominent gun control group in America. The group was named after Jim and Sarah Brady. Jim Brady was President Ronald Reagan’s press secretary who was shot during an assassination attempt on the president. This failed assassination attempt left Brady paralyzed, which helped galvanize support for his gun control efforts.

In 2001, the group would later be renamed the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

The Brady Campaign’s latest decision to rebrand is part of the gun controller’s strategy to confuse the public with ambiguous rhetoric and labeling. “Gun safety”, “commonsense gun control”, and “red flag” laws are just the many terms used by gun controllers to conceal their true intentions—gun confiscation.

Deception is the norm in politics, and when busybody politicians change the language in political debates, they can manipulate public opinion in their favor and make the public receptive to the idea of liberty-crushing legislation.

Despite hand-wringing from gun control groups like Brady, crimes rates plummeted from 1993 to 2013, a period when per capita gun ownership increased by 56 percent.

These facts don’t matter to Brady, who continues to deceive the public and move their gun control agenda forward. Brady’s brand might be new, but their tactics and endgame remain the same.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
