Professional-deceiver-says-what, again?

...or, Yes, Josh Sugarmann really wrote this:

So while we in the United States accept that a Supreme Court Justice who's an "Ambassador" for the gun industry can ethically rule on cases that impact the very industry he represents, maybe in Old Europe, where the WFSA is located, they can still feel the sting of a little thing called shame.

Shame? This from someone who has advocated taking advantage of the public's confusion about automatic vs. semi-automatic rifles to garner support for bans on semiautomatic rifles:
Assault weapons' menacing looks, coupled with the public's confusion over fully-automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons --anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun-- can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

That's rich. Apparently richer than Josh's organization, to boot, considering that he's reduced to recycling blog posts from almost two years ago. You'd think by now he'd have seen the writing on the wall and started taking more advantage of his Federal Firearms License. God knows there's a market for the services he can offer.
