Brady, the White House Press Secretary under President Ronald Reagan has
died. He was 73. He is being credited with "stunning successes" in the
"gun-control" efforts in America.
Brady had been shot in the head
with a .22 caliber revolver during an assassination attempt on president
Reagan in 1981, and was severely incapacitated by the injury. Confined to a
wheel chair for the balance of his life, in constant pain and speaking only
with extreme difficulty, his ambitious and attractive young wife Sarah was
understandably horrified and reportedly turned bitter by the life-changing
tragedy. Their world had turned upside down.
Continuing a long
tradition of spinning gun-related news to fit a set of beliefs instead of
conformance with the facts, the "news" media is portraying James Brady as
the moving force behind what is now the Brady Center for the Prevention of
Gun Violence, formerly the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, formerly
the Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence Allied with The Million Moms March,
formerly the Center to Prevent Handgun Violence, formerly Handgun Control,
Inc., formerly the National Council to Ban
Jim Brady Never Ran The
His wife Sarah however was the public face
and driving force of the anti-gun-rights movement the entire time, which is
common knowledge to everyone in the field. Husband Jim was wheeled out
infrequently at selected events, often to thunderous applause, where he
would wave weakly, occasionally say a few garbled words, and leave the rest
of the activity to his wife and others. He was incapable of much else due
to the unfortunate tragedy he endured.
The Brady Bill, technically
The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, eventually took control of every
firearm sold at retail in America, not just handguns as originally
promoted, thanks to a little noticed portion that took effect automatically
in 1998 -- five years after Congress voted to pass the bill in 1993.
Delayed passage of unexpected, controversial or unpopular provisions of law
is a questionable practice, according to leading experts. It caught most
gun owners by complete surprise.
Five-Day "Cooling Off" Period Was Promo, Not
The much vaunted five-day waiting (or "cooling
off") period, promoted by the "news" media as the reason for passing the
bill, was never a significant part of even the handgun law, never part of
the all-firearms bill, and is not part of the bill now.
basically used as feel-good leverage to pass the bill for those who didn't
read it, and for media promotion. Many people still believe there is a
five-day waiting period in the law, even though there isn't now and
effectively never was. The "news" media has done little or nothing to
clarify the point, leaving the public with the same false impression, 21
years later. But it feels good, according to some with inside knowledge of
Some states have enacted their own waiting periods
of differing lengths and conditions. The 'holy grail' of waiting periods, a
long sought after goal of anti-gun-rights activists, has been largely
abandoned, left on the dust heap of history. It eventually became obvious,
even to die-hard activists, that it was illogical to sell guns to the
furiously angry, and then hope they remain calm for the rest of their lives
after a five-day wait to get armed. https://www.gunlaws.com/WaitingPeriodsEssay.htm
Rights Denied With No Due
Although "news" reports are literally promoting
a factoid, presented with no corroboration, that the Brady bill has
prevented two million gun transfers from taking place, there is no evidence
that the bill has prevented any criminals from arming themselves.
Disarming criminals is the stated goal of the bill.
In fact, gangs
and criminals in America are known to be heavily armed despite every law on
the books banning such activity. In that sense, the Brady bill is an abject
failure, but at least it is enormously expensive, diverts scarce resources
from other desperately needed uses, impacts every innocent person who shops
for firearms, and provides massive employment for law-enforcement officials
and the NICS background-check center in West Virginia. None of these points
made any "news" reports.
What the two-million figure actually
represents, assuming the number is correct, is people denied their
fundamental civil and human right to obtain firearms -- without due
process, a court hearing, submission of evidence, representation of
counsel, or a decent appeals process. In fairness though, there is an
administrative process that leads to frequent reversals due to bad records,
name similarities and plain old government snafus, unmentioned in "news"
accounts. How many should truly be denied firearms for cause is unknown,
uninvestigated and unquestioned, except here.
In other words, the
public's "specific, enumerated right" (District of Columbia v.
Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 628 n.27 (2008) to keep and bear arms, gets
banned under the Brady bill by bureaucrats and a computer terminal, without
immediate or easy redress.
There is no way to tell if you are on
the Brady gun-rights-denied list, (technically, the "NICS Index") and
attempting to exercise your rights and buy a firearm if you are on the
government list is a felony. Attempting to find out if you're on the list
is a crime. The Brady system is, by design, tyrannical.
alternative BIDS system, at 90% less cost, would accomplish the same
Brady-like purpose of preventing criminals from buying firearms at retail
and paying sales tax, yet would not infringe on the innocent, but has
gotten a cold shoulder from officials, for reasons that were unclear at
the BIDS approach (Blind Identification System), the list of prohibited
possessors is made available, encrypted and password protected, to
federally licensed dealers, who can look up prospective buyers, similar to
wanted posters, to prevent sales to undesirables, while keeping the names
of the innocent out of government hands. The need for huge federal employee
banks and overhead is eliminated entirely.
How many of the two
million prevented transfers were real criminals trying to buy guns who
should be arrested for it? That's been studied. Virtually none, at
astronomical cost, it's easily googled (a NICS stop is insufficient grounds
to dispatch law enforcement, and virtually never "grounds for successful
prosecution," Translation: a hard-enough crime has not been
committed). This is the "success" the media splashes in our faces. For
Brady Gave FBI Centralized
Control Over The Public
The main tangible result of the
Brady bill was to authorize more than $250 million initially, with unknown
subsequent funding, for the FBI to build its long-desired centralized
computer center in Clarksburg, W. Va., from which it could check out any
American from a single location. With funding unavailable for years, the
furor over "gun control" provided the final impetus to construct the huge
campus that houses the NICS center that performs background checks on every
new gun sold in America. Its other uses are a closely guarded
The FBI's NICS center is the largest retail-control system
of any kind in the world, keeping tabs, in real time, of sales nationwide
of a consumer product. It now handles an average of more than a million
requests a month. See a diagram of how it works here: https://www.gunlaws.com/images/nicsbig.gif
system is capable of turning off gun sales nationally -- or regionally --
at the flip of a switch, and has done so repeatedly, on "a trial basis,"
for "scheduled maintenance," and "unexpected outages," even during busy
holiday-buying seasons, or during weekend gun shows, sometimes for days at
a time. https://www.gunlaws.com/brady8day.htm.
System up time has improved over the years.
National Gun Registration System Can't Be
Although the Brady system isn't supposed to
maintain a list of gun buyers, which is banned by federal law (FOPA, 1986,
and the Brady bill itself), public confidence in this is low. When

was constructed, claimed at the time the computer was incapable of deleting
records, to the shock of many observers. She later recanted, and said it
would be rebuilt to delete records within six months.
again, after Congressional outrage, and said records would be deleted
quickly, as if her edicts could simply supplant statute (which required
destruction). Ten sets of backups are deleted in sequence, according to an
FBI spokesperson contacted at the SHOT Show, to protect the integrity of
the system. The results of record checks performed outside the system, to
foreign sources, are unclear. No audit trail is known, and the FBI, which
runs the system, assures Congress and the public that it runs the system
within the confines of the law. An insider has assured me this is true. The
FBI had previously stated publicly that it keeps the
