The End of the Million Mom March

We 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 ("problems" with the group's tax return for 2000) suggest that, had it not done so, its 501(c)(3) exemption would have been revoked by the Internal Revenue Service because of widespread evidence of abuse of that status.

Rest in pieces. Even Hitler's Thousand Year Reich lasted more than a decade.
From Handgun Control Incorporated/ Brady Campaign "(Washington, D.C. - June 28, 2001) The Brady Campaign and the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Million Mom March announced today that the organizations would merge on October 1."

In simple language, the stricken Million Mom March, which is no longer 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 Handgun Control Incorporated/ Brady Campaign. Our side must not let the destroyed 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 agenda, and lies.

Management expert Tom Peters says, "You don't get an eagle by merging two turkeys." By absorbing the dying Million Mom March, the Brady Campaign acquires all its liabilities, like lying to its own members about "13 children a day and allegations of using tax-exempt money to support political campaigns. 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 stupidity but it is always welcome when it manifests itself.
