Back in February, one month after the Tucson shooting, Paul Helmke, head of the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence, addressed the Women's National Democratic Club. There he dispelled some common gun myths put forth by the gun lobby.
Myth: "The Second Amendment Prevents Gun Regulation."
Myth: "Leadership on guns leads to political defeat."
Myth: "Just enforce existing laws."
Myth: "Gun laws won't make a difference."
Myth: "More guns = less crime."
