A Web site that was set up to take "charitable" donations to the anti-gun bradycampaign.org was apparently taken down by its owners shortly after it appeared on the Web, featuring a Shockwave video that depicted Charlton Heston as a skyjacker. The link was distributed among numerous pro-gun discussions. Theories as to its demise include possible threats of libel suits, and some pro-RKBA activists hitting bradycampaign.org's donation collection pages with $.01 transactions (which result in a negative cash flow). Goodbye, good riddance, and rest in pieces to [url]http://www.bradycampaign.org/activism/heston/movie.asp[/url]

I really like the fact that you cannot contact this organization UNLESS yo umake a donation!!A real up and up organization. To bad James had to get shot, but that's the risk you take as a political figure. I wonder why no one has tried t ooff Strom? Could it be that he is pro gun had might carry(even at his age)?

I've tried to access the Charlton Heston movie per above link from several places using "clean" browsers (i.e. no gun-related site as referrer) from various IP addresses, and I'm pretty sure that page shut down completely. The Shockwave movie chained into a shopping cart site run by www.charityweb.net. See [url]http://www.charityweb.net/fulldescription.htm[/url]. They charge over $1K for setup, $25 per month, $.39 per credit card deposit [rolleyes], and their customers have to maintain their own checking accounts.

I somehow got the video to work. Clicked on it and got the "Not Authorized" page, deleted all but the main URL, browsed the main site, and when I hit my back button, that piece of shit was playing.

We are now on a list of "IP addresses" not permitted to access this site !!

I get paid to run Microsoft IIS. Their Web administrator appears to have done a quick fix by changing security on that one directory (or virtual directory) from Allow all IP addresses by default to Deny all by default. That's one of dozens of ways to do it, and not what I would have done.

Has anyone tried to pull this up from an alternate location? I'd like to know if it's dead, or just blocked to us. I'd do it but I'm not at work anymore.

Yo, CK! Whassup, boyeeee? Got canned from my job two weeks ago like I thought - no biggie. Still waiting on that package you were gonna send me. Can't wait! I love this info - I am gonna donate a penny with my old corporate AMEX card - hope it still works! Greywolf

Greywolf, I'll have a package in the mail for you and Mrs. GW in a day or three. No rush, you won't need it 'til Spring anyway. I think a lot of good pro-RKBA folks on the 'Net smashed bradycampaign's genitalia today, and the DoJ's announcement must have added insult to injury. Happiness is a positive kill. Oh, and a belt-fed weapon. Miller time on the Left Coast! [beer]

Thanks for correcting my link. I tried to cut and paste out of my browser but that didn't work. I'm obviously new to this. How should I have done the link?

Hey now, don't forget us folks who gave them our $.02 - literally and figuratively! It's all about money. Libel suits cost it, credit card transactions cost it, and we basically hit a low blow on them and staggered there advances. Good Job, boys and girls. [brown]Evil Jewbroni~[/brown]

When I tried to give them my .02 I got a message that the minimum donation was $15.00! Anybody has a suggestion. I tried the credit card option.
