Another Nicki fisk: “Play Stupid Games, Win Stupid Prizes”

Read it all here.

A sample:

In 2012, a deranged loon shot up a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. It was a tragedy in which 12 people were killed and 70 others injured. James Holmes fired 76 shots in the theater: six from a shotgun, 65 from a semi-automatic rifle, and five from a .40-caliber handgun. The shooting prompted the usual calls for more gun control, and Holmes this year was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after jurors failed to reach a unanimous decision over sentencing him to death.

In the aftermath of the shooting, and in an obvious effort to take advantage of an opportunity, the Brady Center and its attorneys brought a pro bono lawsuit on behalf of the parents of one of the victims Jessica Ghawi against Lucky Gunner – the company that sold Holmes ammunition.

They lost.

Further, they were ordered to pay $203,000 in legal fees for this frivolous lawsuit. They’re now crying that they don’t have the money, while at the same time absolving the Brady Center of responsibility for paying this bill, even though they instigated the suit.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I hurt for Lonnie and Sandy Phillips. I know what it’s like to lose a child, and it’s an agony I don’t wish on anyone. But at the same time, when your reaction to such a tragic loss is to work to relieve others of their rights, abuse the legal system in order to punish lawful citizens for engaging in legal business, and then whine about the legal consequences of your actions, you deserve a fisk.

The Phillips couple (he apparently a paid operations manager for the Brady bunch) took their self-righteous and deceptive complaint to HuffPo. TZP’s Nicki Kenyon gives it the fisking it deserves.

  1. We don’t know what crazy reasoning prompted another murderer today in OR. Obama was on tv a long time pushing for more gun laws, conveniently forgetting we sell more arms than anyone else in the world and kill more people around the world than anyone in history, I suspect. Such sheer dishonesty makes me want to vomit and I can’t listen without ranting, causing my wife to rant against me! My other thought always is “too bad one of those profs or kids hadn’t slipped a small pistol into their backpack that morning.”
