Long debate with Brady Campaign's John Lowy on C-SPAN Washington Journal

The debate that I had on Saturday morning is available here.  I wasn't able to respond to a lot of the inaccurate claims, but I hope that this is useful.  While we primarily covered the Stand Your Ground laws and the Zimmerman trial, we also got into other issues.

David Hardy has some interesting data on how the Brady Campaign has been doing recently.

Even the left wing Daily Howler takes the media to task for how it is covering the Zimmerman case (they should get credit when they write a good piece).

Amendment 6 - In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed. . .

Zimmerman was not convicted of a crime. Charges were made, but he was not convicted of a crime that would prohibit him from owning or carrying a firearm. You can not take a citizen's rights, in this country, just because a vindictive ex, a political rival, or a business rival filed a charge or a lawsuit. I fully believe that's the way it should be.

It sounds like the spokesman from the Brady Campaign would like to do away with the 6th amendment, as well as the 2nd, and infringe on the 1st Amendment rights of gun ownders, the gun industry, and the NRA and other gun rights groups. If they can't manage to ban guns, they hope to at least prohibit as many people as possible from owning, carrying, or using firearms.
