Brady Campaign Endorses DeWine

Friday, June 23, 2006

In its first Senatorial endorsement of the year, The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence this week endorsed anti-gun Senator Mike DeWine (R-Ohio).

In lauding the anti-gun efforts of Senator DeWine, the group cited DeWine’s unsuccessful effort to block the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” (which was signed last fall by President Bush), his ill-conceived efforts to create a “firearm tracing” database, and his push for sweeping semi-auto firearm bans.

“In politics, you are defined as much by the battles you fight where you fail as those in which you win,” said Michael D. Barnes, president of the Brady Campaign.  And if anyone knows about failure, it’s the soon-to-be-departed Barnes and the Brady Bunch.
