Brady Campaign Lies Again

Saturday, June 18, 2005

Nevada Law Enforcement Officials' Names
Wrongly Added to H.R. 800 Opposition Letter!

On March 15, 2004, the "Brady Campaign" testified before the House Judiciary Committee in  opposition to H.R. 800--"The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act"--federal legislation that would protect law-abiding firearm manufacturers from reckless, predatory, and potentially bankrupting lawsuits.  During testimony, the group attempted to bolster its argument by introducing a letter that listed five Nevada law enforcement officials who purportedly lent their names to the Brady's effort to thwart the bill.  The Bradys and another anti-gun organization--the "Million Mom March"--even posted the opposition letter on their websites as a way to garner key support for their gun-banning efforts.

But, as it turns out (and not surprisingly), the Brady Campaign apparently added the sheriffs' names to the letter without their knowledge or approval!

Due to phone calls generated by NRA members, we're happy to report that all five sheriffs have since contacted NRA to report the error and to determine how to have their names removed.  Incidentally, the letter in question has suddenly been removed from the Brady's website.

Members should call the Sheriffs--Ron Unger of Lander County; Gene Hill and Brian Jonas of Humboldt County; Dennis Balaam of Washoe County; and Bill Young of Clark County, and thank them for their support and quick action!  The sheriffs can be reached at:

Lander County Sheriff: (775) 635-1100
Humboldt County Sheriff:  (775) 623-6419
Washoe County Sheriff: (775) 328-3010
Clark County Sheriff:  (702) 229-3231
