The Liberty Sphere points us to a column from the Conservative Libertarian Outpost which chronicles a dark Machiavellian deal between the NRA ( America’s Oldest Gun Control Organization) and Carolyn McCarthy (gungrabber extraordinaire) to resuscitate the Brady Bill from the grave.
Even many Democrats wouldn’t go near a McCarthy gun bill. They have learned that supporting gun control is a losing issue. Enter Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), the so-called Dean of the House, having served since the Eisenhower administration. Dingell is also a former NRA Board member, and was in that capacity tapped to bring the NRA leadership to the table.
The end result of the negotiations was that this small clique among the NRA leadership gave this bill the support it needed to pass.
