What is the American Hunters and Shooters Association?

You may have heard a little something about the "American Hunters and Shooters Association," (AHSA) which bills itself as more of a "moderate" alternative to the NRA and is going around supporting Barack Obama for President.

What is the AHSA? Who is behind it? Some info here. Excerpt:

John Rosenthal an AHSA founding board member was also the founder of Boston based Stop Handgun Violence, a gun violence prevention group that has advocated some of the nation’s strictest gun laws... Like Nancy Schoenke, he too served on the Brady board until frustration set in. John quit Brady and helped finance and build AHSA.
