The End of the Million Mom
can only speculate on why the Million Mom March Foundation felt that it
had to liquidate itself and transfer its assets to the Brady Center but
the information and that at http://www.stentorian.com/2ndamend/mmm/form990.html
("problems" with the group's tax return for 2000) suggest that, had it
not done so, its 501(c)(3) exemption would have been revoked by the
Internal Revenue Service because of widespread evidence of abuse of

Brady Campaign and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the

In simple language, the stricken Million Mom March, which is no
capable of surviving as a viable force in American politics, has chosen
to die gracefully (save face) by "merging" with the down-but-not-out
Control Incorporated/ Brady Campaign. Our side must not let the
MMM save face, we must make it absolutely clear to the public that the
Million Mom March is dead thanks to its own dishonesty, hidden
Management expert Tom Peters says, "You don't get an eagle by
two turkeys." By absorbing the dying Million Mom March, the Brady
acquires all its liabilities, like lying to its own members about "13

Instead of two political/public relations targets our side now has one.
It makes our job much easier. One should never count on an enemy's
but it is always welcome when it manifests itself.
When someone builds a house on a foundation
in this case, hidden agendas, lying, and other problems— the house
down. So it is with the Million Mom March, which was effectively
as a viable political organization in April 2001.
Chronology of the
of the Million Mom March
Late April 2000: Stentorian.com exposes
the Million Mom March for promoting political candidates on its
Pie Award page while claiming 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
April-May 2000: Columnist J.R. Labbe picks up this story, it appears in
column in many newspapers.
May 2000, just prior to Mother's Day: The Million Mom March suddenly
its tax status. It first says it's going to become a political action
Then it splits into the 501(c)(3) Million Mom March Foundation and the
501(c)(4) (nonexempt lobbying) Million Mom March.
March 2001: Donna
Dees-Thomases announces that the group is laying off 30 of its 35
members. (Link is audio)
March 2001: Jim March and Najda Adolf point out that a lobbying group
now-501(c)(4) Million Mom March) is apparently receiving
rent-free space at the San Francisco General Hospital. Consternation at
March-April 2001: SFGH evicts the Million Mom March.
13 May 2001: The Million Mom March reappears at the 501(c)(3)
Children's Home in Chicago. We will see how long this lasts when
becomes aware of what the MMM really is.
Million Mom March announces
its death date, officially called a merger with the Brady Campaign.
January 2004. The Million Mom March/ Brady Campaign removed "A Gringo
Like Me" from their page at NRABlacklist.com. The music by Ennio
Morricone was used in the movie Gunfight at Red Sands. We don't know
whether the Brady Campaign "forgot" to license the music from the
copyright owner but a little birdie made a point of informing them.
Anyway, the music was removed from nrablacklist.com shortly afterward.
The Brady Bunch also ran into the same kind of trouble when they were
framing entire newspaper articles on their Web pages.
Million Mom March leader Mary
lies to the United Nations
Ms. Blek provided the following testimony
to the United Nations on July 16:
MARY LEIGH BLEK, Million Mom March: The gun
has been talking for 40 minutes. During that time, 40 people have
died from the use of small arms and light weapons in this country.
That figure, not the statement of those representatives, is further
that this country is at war.
One death per minute times 60 minutes per hour times 24 hours per day
times 365 days per year = 525,600 deaths per year, more deaths than our
country suffered from the Second World War. This is an outright lie and
Ms. Blek was kind enough to let her friends in the United Nations
it in black and white. The pro-Second Amendment side will soon have
all over the country to further discredit the entire gun control
See http://www.stentorian.com/2ndamend/dirty.html#Blek for the United
Nations' Ministry of Truth's "correction" of Ms. Blek's remarks. The UN
changed it to read "40 people around the world" although the context is
still more consistent with "in this country."
