If 20% of their workforce is 14 people... that means they had about 70 employees, now they're down to 55 or so. Couldn't have happened to a better organization. [:)] http://www.rollcall.com/pages/columns/hoh/ Losing Control at Handgun Control? While one airliner after another slashes their payrolls, the best-known anti-gun lobby in Washington laid off 14 people Tuesday. Officials at the Brady Campaign, formerly known as Handgun Control, confirmed to HOH yesterday that they cut nearly 20 percent of their staff this week. "It's a difficult time around here," said spokesman Brendan Daly. "Like a lot of other nonprofit organizations, we've been hit by the downturn in the economy." Daly said the group has also been affected by the terrorism in America, which has led to overflow contributions to relief efforts. "The terrorist attacks have rightly focused people on helping the victims, but that has a direct impact on our fundraising." The fact that gun control has not been at the top of the Congressional agenda has also not helped the group founded by Jim and Sarah Brady after Mr. Brady nearly died from a gunshot wound during the 1981 assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan. Among their triumphs was getting the Brady bill signed into law, which resulted in a five-day waiting period on handgun purchases. "They've known some of these people for a very long time," Daly said of the couple. "But I think they're holding up."

You notice that they said it was hard times due to lack of money instead of hard times because what happened woke the American public up to the fact that they are full of shit!!!! The largest mass murder in the world just occurred without ONE SINGLE GUN and it made them look like idiots.
