David Yamane Talks To Brady Org About Gun Culture 2.0

From Red, Blue and Brady podcast:

Gun ownership in the US has changed, and with it, how that ownership is viewed and studied. One person studying those changes — and a participant in them — is sociologist and gun owner Dr. David Yamane. Dr. Yamane, author of the book Concealed Carry Revolution: Expanding the Right to Bear Arms in America and the blogs Gun Culture 2.0 and Gun Curious, joined hosts Kelly and JJ to discuss what he (and Michael Bane) call Gun Culture 2.0 — namely, the emerging trend where individuals don’t enter gun culture through hunting, military service, or family tradition, but out of personal defense concerns.

Gun Control Groups Took Relief Money

From Washington Free Beacon:

The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence received between $350,000 and $1 million on April 10 to support 41 employees, according to the Small Business Administration. The center is the educational arm of the Brady organization, which also features a political advocacy arm, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, as well as the political action committee Brady PAC. In March, the Brady PAC endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and announced it would spend $4 million to help elect him and other gun-control candidates to office.

Lawsuit Fails Against Armslist


In a 5-1 ruling, the court held the federal Communications Decency Act shields the Oklahoma-based website in the case. This had the effect of clearing Armslist of liability in the Brady suit, which aimed to find blame with the company following a 2012 shooting with a firearm purchased from a listing on the site.
A judge in a previous 2016 ruling by a lower court also cited CDA, saying that since Armslist did not create the ad or directly become involved in the transaction, they cannot be held at fault over such third-party content.

Suit Against Ammo Seller Thrown Out


In the opinion, Matsch took time to point out what he saw as the political underpinnings of the Brady Campaign’s suit:

It is apparent that this case was filed to pursue the political purposes of the Brady Center, and, given the failure to present any cognizable legal claim, bringing these defendants into the Colorado court where the prosecution of James Holmes was proceeding appears to be more of an opportunity to propagandize the public and stigmatize the defendants than to obtain a court order which counsel should have known would be outside the authority of this court.
