Why a man who is filthy rich and has his own armed security would want to disarm the rest of America is beyond me. But former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is poised to do just that.
Bloomberg has announced his plans to spend $50 million on a new gun control group — yes another one. As if the groups Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun
Sense Control in America were not enough to convince us that Bloomberg is outright opposed to the 2nd amendment, he has decided to put his money where his mouth is and start a new group.
The gun control lobbying group will be called Everytown for Gun Safety. As if the NRA and every responsible gun owner was not already supportive of gun safety, right? But just like his other gun control groups that APPEAR to be main stream and common sense in their titles, this one will also have the main purpose of supporting more restrictive gun control laws and infringing on basic 2nd amendment rights.
Bloomberg just doesn’t want us to be able to defend ourselves without being treated like criminals. I suppose we would rather we just spend millions of dollars on paid armed security like he does.
The new organization will envelope the two other gun control groups (MAIG and Moms Demand Action) and will have the first goal of pushing background checks in all 50 states to ensure that no father will ever be able to give his rifle to his son without first paying for it and treating him like a criminal.
Of course that will NOT be the only goal of this group, as we have seen Bloomberg pour millions of dollars into elections in other states to try to push his anti-gun agenda all across the fruited plane.
According to NBC Newyork,
“Right now, women, when they go to the polls, they vote on abortion, they vote on jobs, they vote on health care,” Moms Demand Action founder Shannon Watts told the Times. “We want one of those things to be gun violence prevention.”
Bloomberg said he wanted work with both parties on gun control efforts and assembled an advisory board of Republican and Democratic officials, philanthropists and investors.
The former mayor’s $50 million contribution would more than double the NRA’s $20 million in annual spending on political activities, the Times reports. Bloomberg hinted that his contributions to the cause could grow.
“I put $50 million this year, last year into coal, $53 million into oceans,” he told the Times. “Certainly a number like that, $50 million. Let’s see what happens.”
Don’t you wish you had $50 million to pour into something and just “see what happens”?
