It’s worth noting some reactions. I think Jacob had the money quite earlier when he said, “Who will have the most outrageous outburst? Daley, Bloomberg or Meano?” Well, Bloomberg’s statement is here, in which he declares victory in McDonald. This reflects the opinion of the Brady Campaign, who are also declaring victory. Doesn’t look like Daley has commented yet, and neither has Menino, so I guess Bloomberg gets the win!
Josh Sugarmann, head of the Violence Policy Center, to his credit, at least has the ability to call a spade a spade and show they understand who won. Give the Bradys lemons they’ll make lemonade. Give Josh lemons he’ll just get more sour. VPC’s official statement is very much them, and can basically be summed up as “The gun lobby won, so now everyone is going to die!!!”
