8. I expect the Brady campaign is going to grow rapidly in the weeks ahead

I think people are starting to see that we need a group to counter the NRA. I don't always agree with the Brady Campaign, but I sure as hell am a lot closer to them than I am to the gun nuts at the NRA.

9. I don't think its going to be the Brady Campaign

the brady campaign is on the verge of irrelevency even in the gun control movement. They are in questionable financial state and it's not sure how many members they have left (but i believe it is a fraction of what it once was)

10. Well currently there is not a bigger gun control organization out there

It is true that the Brady campaign has been extremely weak in comparision to the NRA, but I think more and more people are starting to see the problem with the NRA's dominence of the debate. If it is not Brady then another gun control organization needs to be built up, we simply can't allow the NRA to continue to have all the political power on their side.

18. Actually, I had the same question.

First, the site doesn't indicate on the linked main page anything about a donation effort, which is a question because

Secondly, why would they "match" donations (as stated in the OP) to their own organization?

Clarification would be greatly appreciated.

13. Stop Watching TV: It Deadens the Soul

Please consider this: Turn your TV off. You don't need to know every detail as it unfolds. The repetition is deadening to the soul.

16. Not About Denial

All I am saying is that caring people draining themselves by immolation in every detail helps no one. Our energies needed to be conserved and channeled in some useful way.

17. You mean like pooling our money into an anti-gun lobby group,

as the OP suggests? Why are you posting about turning off the tv and doing something when the OP is saying nothing about watching tv and is saying everything about doing something?
