Brady on Zumbo

click here for the Brady's article

"I particularly like how the NRA always accuses us of trying to destroy the Bill of Rights (mind you, we're not anti-gun), when they abridge the First and perhaps most important one."

Well, the Brady Campaign has demonstrated that they have a complete lack of understanding of the entire Bill of Rights, not just the Second Amendment.

The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, among other things. Accordingly, Jim Zumbo is free to say what he likes, and he has demonstrated this. However, the First Amendment in no way requires OUTDOOR LIFE to publish Zumbo's admittedly uninformed opinion. Nor does it require Zumbo's former sponsors to continue supporting him. If it were interpreted that way, it would abridge the Freedom of Association, which is also protected by the First Amendment.
