How are gun control groups doing?

One gets some idea of how well the gun control groups are doing just by looking at how many people list that they like them in their Facebook accounts. While the NRA has 575,000 fans and Gun Owners of America has 41,000, gun control groups need some real help getting supporters: American Hunters and Shooters Association, 13; Americans for Gun Safety, 4; Brady Campaign, 9,998; Freedom States Alliance, 44; and Violence Policy Center, zero. The only overlap is for the Second Amendment Foundation, with only 3,596 people who like it.

GOCRA, the Minnesota-specific gun rights group, has over 200. We've got most of the gun-banning groups beat by ourselves.

Neat.

How is the Second Ammendment Foundation 'overlap' with the gun grabbers? I haven't read or heard of anything Alan Gottleib & Co have ever said in support of gun control.

Dear crashonhead:

The overlap was with the number of people who liked the group on Facebook.
