Just keep doing what you're doing

I ran across this article on The Joyce Foundation. (no linking per my policy) The article paints them as the gun control advocate's answer to the NRA. Ellen Aberding, president feels the need to carry on pushing for gun control, long after other organizations have quit.

And that requires stricter gun control, Ms. Alberding says. She feels an additional obligation to carry on after other foundations stopped funding gun-control efforts over the past decade as the U.S. Supreme Court, Congress and state legislatures endorsed fewer and fewer restrictions on guns. Currently, only Illinois and Wisconsin prohibit carrying concealed weapons.

The funding they provide is laughable, 3 million dollars spread over 16 different grants. Let's see here, 3 million dollars goes into 80 million gun owners.... That's $26.66 per gun owner they're spending to convince the general public that a specific enumerated right isn't.

Slowly, but surely, these bigoted fools are sweeping themselves into the dustbin of history. I'd like to lift the lid on the trash can and help them into it.
