When the facts disagree with you, the only thing left to do is to lie. Since its founding in 1974, Handgun Control, Inc.( Now The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence or BCPHV) has pursued a policy of disseminating lies about handguns and crime in the United States.
HCI (BCPHV)originated (1974) as the National Council to Control Handguns (NCCH), a group which lobbied for government restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms through support for restrictions on the manufacture, importation, sale, transfer, and civilian possession of handguns. The organization voiced a desire for an eventual handgun ban through gradual steps, but changed its name and espoused goals due to results of a survey. In 1991, HCI (BCPHV) amended its Articles of Incorporation to reflect its support of restrictions on rifles and shotguns as well.
Handgun Control, Inc.( The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence) toddled along as a smallish, fringe organization until the near-fatal wounding of presidential Press Secretary James Brady during the attempted assassination of then-President Ronald Reagan in 1981. Shortly thereafter Brady’s wife, Sarah, joined HCI and wound up as its chief figure. Let’s look at Handgun Control, Inc.’s philosophy.
