Ratings of AntiGun Lobbying Organizations

Organization

Who They Are

John Kerry's Rating

The Brady Campaign

The Brady campaign, of which the Million Mom March is a part, produces antigun literature and pushes gun control legislation. At best, it is very creative in its interpretation of facts and statistics. At worst they parrot studies long discredited and perpetuate mistruths about the benefits of gun control while ignoring the benefits of gun ownership. Their stated eventual goal is the banning of all handguns.

100% (2002)

Coalition to Stop Gun Violence

Their stated goal is to prevent gun violence. The unstated aim of their attacks is to end gun ownership. To achieve their goals, they support legislations counter to the interests of gun owners and support using the court system to bankrupt legitimate gun businesses.

Ratings of AntiHunting Lobbying Organizations

Who They Are

John Kerry's Rating

American Humane Society

In their Hunting Policy statement: "American Humane opposes the hunting of any living creature for fun, trophy, or for simple sport. American Humane believes that sport hunting is a form of exploitation of animals for the entertainment of the hunter and is contrary to the values of compassion and respect for all life that inform American Humane's mission."

100% (2003) per Project Vote Smart

Animal Protection Institute

Antihunting organization. See "The Fallacy of Sport Hunting" as an example of their work.

100% (2003) per Project Vote Smart

Fund for Animals

The Fund for Animals bills itself as a animal protection group. In practice, they fight all legislation that may be considered pro-hunting and push all legislation to limit hunting. An example of their work is White Tailed Deer: Creatures or Crops?

100% (2003)

The Humane Society of the US

This is not the group that runs your local dog shelter. In their own words: "The HSUS is dedicated to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion. We seek a truly humane society in which animals are respected for their intrinsic value, and where the human-animal bond is strong."

On another page they write "We also want to put an end to the commercial and recreational killing of wild animals, to ensure strong and well-enforced laws to guarantee their protection, and to make sure they stay in the wild where they belong."

100% (2003) per Project Vote Smart

Society for Animal Protective Legislation

They fall in line with the views of the Humane Society of the US to the point that their scorecard is a pointer to the scorecard produced by the HSUS.

"Foolish liberals who are trying to read the Second Amendment out of the Constitution by claiming that it's not an individual right or that it's too much of a safety hazard, don't see the danger of the big picture. They're courting disaster by encouraging others to use the same means to eliminate portions of the Constitution they don't like." Alan Dershowitz
