It is rare that there is any other kind. But those who willfully ignore facts will find the truth harsher than most.
I have empathy for these folks. They lost their child at the hands of a madman. And then, in their grief, they were approached by dishonest people who wanted to use them to advance their own agenda. "Sue the ammo vendor," they said, "we will work your case for free, and only get paid when we win." A siren's call, if ever there was one. Any lawyer worth a tinker's damn could have foreseen the case was frivolous. But that was not the concern of the Brady foundation, or its lawyers. They knew the case would attract national attention. That was all they reasonably expected. And now that the parents have a $200,000+ judgment against them, the Brady foundation and it's lawyers ride off into the sunset, leaving this distraught family in the dust. And that's sad. But then the family hares off and cries about this to the press and blames... the ammo vendor, the judge, the law, everyone except the foundation that talked them into this idiocy. At this point, I doubt even the harsh truth will reach them. But, when the bill comes due, and the Brady foundation is nowhere to be found, maybe they will realize they were had. But I somehow doubt it.
