I just got off the phone with the Brady Bunch...

Brady Operator:"Brady Campaign, how may I help you?"

Me:"Yes, I was reviewing your website that shows the state report cards for gun laws and I noticed that the Texas, which is where I live, earned a D- in 2004. I was wondering what I can do as a concerned citizen to help Texas earn an F next year."

Brady Operator: "Can you repeat that please?"

Me: "Sure, was reviewing your website that shows the state report cards for gun laws and I noticed that the Texas, which is where I live, earned a D- in 2004. I was wondering what I can do as a concerned citizen to help Texas earn an F next year."

Brady Operator: "Uh....can you hold on for a second please?"

[long hold, no answer]



Oh, I'm bored today.

Too, funny.

Dang, the wording in that "report card" is as twisted as everything else they say.
Link Posted: 12/29/2005 11:36:29 AM EDT
Maybe we should call and aske why lower scoring states have lower crime and higher scoring states are overrun with criminal activity.

LOL

Brady Bunch: "Hello, Brady Campaign."

Me: "Yes ma'am, I was wondering if you could answer a question for me."

BB: "I'll try."

Me: " I was just looking at your state report card page and I was wondering if you could tell me why states that have bad grades have lower crime rates then those states with good grades."

BB: "I...uhh....don't..know. Let me transfer you to someone that can help."

Me: "OK, thanks."

BB: "Youre welcome."


I hung up after being on hold for about 10 minutes.

Just looked at the Florida report card. Damned, only a D- as well. Better luck next year.

One thing caught my eye...

Carrying Concealed Weapons Law

NO police discretion, minimal training, reciprocity F

So, reciprocity is bad (like a drivers license) and the po-po should have a say who carries (when I can't deny a cop because he can't shoot worth a damn) and the required training is about the same as a po-po.

What part of clueless can't they understand?

Speaking of 'clue'...

What do you get when you cross the ACLU and a vowel? (hint: E)

A CLUE !

Buy a vowel you asshats!

South Carolina is only a D+, but at least we're moving in the right direction.

Down from a C- the provious year.

I don't think were getting a fair shake tho.

We're a Class 3 state. We've expanded recipricity. We have no firearms purchase permits required, handgun or long gun.

I mean, whata we gotta do to get an F???

Link Posted: 12/29/2005 12:01:07 PM EDT
North Carolina got a C.

I must not be doing my part, I'll try harder in the future.

Omg my state got a C+, i gotta move...(wisconsin)

lmao what a crock of uneducated shit from the wanna feel important crowd..
Link Posted: 12/29/2005 12:12:31 PM EDT
Me: Yes, I'm calling about the state rating given South Carolina. You've given us a D+ down from a C- the prior year."

"I'm requesting you down grade us to an F, as we certainly don't want the wrong kind of people moving to South Carolina."

"We've embraced many Constitutional freedoms, and believe we've earned an F."

I believe your website could give a false impression to the liberal gun hating animists that think guns get up and kill poeple, and we certainly don't want them moving to South Carolina."

"Please downgrade us to an F . Thank you for your time."

Washington only got a D+. Come on a D- for preemptive laws, WTF, state law trumps local in WA, no city or county can make a law that counters a state law.

I need to give 'em a call.

a quote from the SC report card that had me laughing like crazy...


"South Carolina does not have any handgun safety standards and even forces police to let people carry hidden handguns in public."

Link Posted: 12/29/2005 5:31:31 PM EDT
Yeehaw. Alabama got an F

I'm in florida. we got a d+ bet a dollar to a donut we get an F next year! we passed the stand your ground law here.
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 10:17:32 AM EDT
I'm wondering what we'd need to do to get an F. Pass open carry and unlicensed CCW? Do they know you can buy a handgun at 18 in Texas? I want an F for Texas, dagnabit!
Link Posted: 12/31/2005 10:43:15 AM EDT
Maine only got a D-. I suppose that's not too bad.

It says something about Maine blocking an NRA attempt to lessen restrictions on concealed carry... I don't remember ever hearing about that...

Because we don't require licensing for firerms purchases, the waiting period is only 10 days, the DROS is only $25, we don't tax bullets, and it's still possible to get a gun for under $150 here.
