The Brady Campaign Vows To Fight On Against Guns

Americans spoke loudly and clearly on Tuesday. What they said was were tired of our nation’s leaders not listening. They were tired of political and media elites pushing their liberal agenda on an unwilling public. And most of all, they tired of the increasing infringement on our freedoms.

For most, the message sent didn’t need any interpretation. Not so for the Brady Campaign. In an amazingly tone-deaf statement, the gun-control group’s president Dan Gross said he can “only hope President-elect Trump recognizes that nine out of 10 Americans, regardless of who they supported for president, want to create a safer America by expanding Brady background checks to every gun sale." He also promised that “Trump’s election isn’t the end of this fight.”

Other gun-control groups weren’t quite as vocal. Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown posted a simple Facebook message imploring its members to “recommit” to their mission. Another Bloomberg-funded group, Moms Demand Action, tried to brush the monumental loss off with the dismissal that “this movement was never about one election” and declared that, they too, “are in this for the long haul.”
