Too Soon? Dudley Brown Doesn’t Wait 24 Hours to Fundraise Off Vegas Massacre

Dudley Brown

It was just before midnight on Sunday when a man opened fire on a crowd in Las Vegas, killing at least 59 people and injuring more than 500 others.

Less than 16 hours later, Dudley Brown was sending out fundraising emails, warning that “the anti-gun ghouls in Washington D.C. are already screeching for more gun control.”

The irony is thick here:

Their demands would have done nothing to stop last night’s shooting rampage, and would only make things worse.

Gun control is not the solution, it is the problem.

It is sickening to see the anti-gun crowd exploit pain and suffering to push for the very same defunct policies that contribute to this kind of attack. [Pols emphasis]

In the coming days, strong support for the Second Amendment will be more important than at any other time so far in Trump’s Presidency.

Before we go any further, let’s all agree that it is completely ludicrous to suggest that gun control policies might have made things worse in Las Vegas on Sunday night. This is not a defensible argument. Now, back to Dudley Brown…

Brown is the President of the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) and head guy at the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO). He has carved out a nice living for himself by yelling and waving his arms whenever anyone so much as hints that maybe, just maybe, we don’t actually need 10,000 rounds of ammunition for every citizen.

It probably makes some strategic sense for Brown and groups like NAGR and RMGO to try raising money over any new gun control sentiment…but not 16 hours after the deadliest mass shooting in American history. Can you at least pretend to have a soul for the first 24 hours after such a tragedy?

You can read the full text of the NAGR fundraising email after the jump…

Last night’s murderous rampage in Las Vegas was indeed an act of pure evil.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families; and for a speedy recovery for those injured.

But while most Americans are uniting with the victims, sending support . . .

. . . the anti-gun ghouls in Washington D.C. are already screeching for more gun control.

Their demands would have done nothing to stop last night’s shooting rampage, and would only make things worse.

Gun control is not the solution, it is the problem.

It is sickening to see the anti-gun crowd exploit pain and suffering to push for the very same defunct policies that contribute to this kind of attack.

In the coming days, strong support for the Second Amendment will be more important than at any other time so far in Trump’s Presidency.

Your National Association for Gun Rights will continue to fight for our God-given right to keep and bear arms, and I know you’ll be right there with us in the upcoming battles.

Thank you for your continued support.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
President
National Association for Gun Rights

P.S. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of last night’s murderous rampage in Las Vegas.

Before some victims had even made it to the hospital, the anti-gun ghouls in Washington D.C. were already screaming for their failed gun control agenda.

It sickens me to see them exploiting this kind of pain and suffering; gun control is the problem, not the solution.

To support our efforts to defend the Second Amendment in the coming weeks and months, please chip in $10 or $20 to help us defeat the tidal wave headed straight at us.

    Figured the Dud would weigh in eventually. Even the NRA is being silent right now out of respect for the dead. But for good old Dud, the NRA is a bunch of candy-ass liberal pansies.

    Always classy…..

    Anyone who opposes gun control is in favor of more mass shootings and wants more people to die. Columbine, Aurora Theatre, Orlando, Virginia Tech, Sandy Hook. As long as our elected officials oppose gun control laws there will be more mass murders. Before the end of 2018 I will write another letter about the next high profile mass shooting.

    No other civilized country has mass shootings at the same rate as this country.

    Who is their boogeyman now? Who are they using to scare their followers into writing checks?

    Obama is gone. Hillary never made it. Whose gonna take all the guns from the ammosexuals? Trump? Beauregard Sessions? Paul Ryan? McConnell?

    Slate reprinted several powerful commentaries from our bounty of prior mass shootings.  Here is one for Dudley:

    The Simple Truth About Gun Control
    By Adam Gopnik in the New Yorker 
    Written after Sandy Hook

    We live, let’s imagine, in a city where children are dying of a ravaging infection. The good news is that its cause is well understood and its cure, an antibiotic, easily at hand. The bad news is that our city council has been taken over by a faith-healing cult that will go to any lengths to keep the antibiotic from the kids. Some citizens would doubtless point out meekly that faith healing has an ancient history in our city, and we must regard the faith healers with respect—to do otherwise would show a lack of respect for their freedom to faith-heal. (The faith healers’ proposition is that if there were a faith healer praying in every kindergarten the kids wouldn’t get infections in the first place.) A few Tartuffes would see the children writhe and heave in pain and then wring their hands in self-congratulatory piety and wonder why a good God would send such a terrible affliction on the innocent—surely he must have a plan! Most of us—every sane person in the city, actually—would tell the faith healers to go to hell, put off worrying about the Problem of Evil till Friday or Saturday or Sunday, and do everything we could to get as much penicillin to the kids as quickly we could.
