Gun Control Group Gets a New Disguise

Published

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.

Ohio Republican Rob Portman Announces that He Won’t Be Seeking Re-Election

America first nationalists must capitalize on this opening in the senate.

On January 25, 2021, Ohio Senator Rob Portman announced that he will not be seeking re-election in 2022. The 2022 election cycle will be a critical mid-term cycle which will determine what course the Republican Party will take in the wake of Trump’s defeat.

According to a report at The Epoch Times, Portman cited “partisan gridlock in Congress and political polarization” as his main reasons for leaving the Senate. 

“I feel fortunate to have been entrusted by the people of Ohio to represent them in the U.S. Senate. Today, I am announcing that I have made a decision not to run again in 2022,” Portman said in a statement.

The Republican senator continued, “I don’t think any Senate office has been more successful in getting things done, but honestly, it has gotten harder and harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress on substantive policy, and that has contributed to my decision.”

In Portman’s view, the United States has become “increasingly polarized where members of both parties are being pushed further to the right and further to the left, and that means too few people who are actively looking to find common ground.” Portman also contended that “This is not a new phenomenon, of course, but a problem that has gotten worse over the past few decades.” He concluded by stating that  “This is a tough time to be in public service.”

Portman accompanies his colleagues Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey and North Carolina Senator Richard Burr in retiring from office. Portman’s presence won’t be missed. He voted for the Iraq War and even betrayed President Trump by voting against his national emergency declaration at the border. To add insult to injury, Portman has routinely talked smack about President Trump behind his back. 

2022 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Republicans with numerous seats in play. With regards to open seats, there will be unique opportunities for America First nationalists to shine in. Ohio is ground zero for the emerging populist realignment taking place in America. Once a state that could go either way during a given election cycle, Ohio is now a safe Republican state. 

America First nationalists should milk this opening for what it’s worth and place a staunch nationalist to run for the open GOP seat in 2022. This will be the first midterm where populists can begin purging the party of neocons and other establishment types.
