Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence Launches Ads To Ban Non-Existent Item

April 12, 2011 11:17 am 5 comments

The Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence, well known assailants of the Constitution and our right to keep and bear arms, recently launched a website and social media campaign to ban a firearm part that doesn’t even exist – assault clips.

I know, it’s obvious that they meant to use the word “magazine”, but this is no excuse for their ignorance. They have been at the gun banning game long enough to know proper terminology. Instead, they choose to use street lingo to reach uninformed people that get their firearms education from watching old Arnold Schwarzenegger movies.

To be fair, many firearms do use “clips”. There are a few revolvers that use moon clips, and certain classic rifles use stripper clips or  en bloc clips to hold and load ammunition. This is not a dangerous new technology, and there is not a single “clip” that could appropriately be called “high capacity” or “assault” since these items only feed a standard number of rounds and they are not used on a fully automatic firearm.

Perhaps there is a dangerous new device used for sealing opened potato chip bags that I am unaware of. Or perhaps there was news of a hair fastening clip that went on a rampage recently. I doubt it.

The liberal left has learned that if they cannot win with facts, they must change semantics to suit their agenda.

We are not at war in Libya – this is just a “kinetic military action.” We do not have a problem with illegal aliens crossing our border – we just have a few “undocumented guest workers.” Don’t worry about the brutal criminals that go through the revolving door of justice every day – It’s the “assault clip” that you have to worry about.

Words have meaning. When the Brady Campaign continues to use incorrect street lingo in an attempt to limit the freedom you have to protect yourself, they are insulting your intelligence.

I choose to stay informed, know my rights and laugh at the Brady Campaign as it fights to ban a nonexistent item.


  • Oh nooo’s. We must ban the dangerous “assault clips”. (Is that anything like “hair clips”?)

    Liberalism: the ultimate brain disorder.

  • Lolz. I used to be a liberal, but I woke up one day after being attacked by a band of these “assault clips”, and I realized I could no longer stand by and let my freedoms be impinged upon with such impunity. I’ll let my Springfield XD speak on my behalf. Good piece.

  • Actually, the Japanese Type 3, Type 92, and Type 1 heavy machine guns as well as the Hotchkiss M1909, M1922, and M1930 used in WWI and WWII were strip fed. So I guess a small portion of antique firearms collectors will be upset over the ban.

  • Pure propaganda, “assault clips make everyone a target” scare tactics to inspire action from fear. The gun man was a mental case with a history of drug abuse who looks like he was kicked in the head several hundred times. He should be publicly executed in a firing line.

    • Clips do not make people targets…Bad people make people targets…Just like SUV’s do not kill people….Bad driver and drunks kill people.

      After this monarchic comment i can see why you hide you real identity. This is the same mentality that the racist of the past had….They judged by how someone looks and this is wrong and i think you know that….so you hide.. “The gun man was a mental case with a history of drug abuse who looks like he was kicked in the head several hundred times. He should be publicly executed in a firing line.”

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
