A few days ago I told you that Billionaire Mayor Bloomberg was planning on using his vast wealth to fund opposing campaigns for any Democrat that chooses to vote against increased gun laws. Last night, he announced that his group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” is funding a $12 Million dollar campaign just for this reason. He is going to flood the media markets in key states using an actor saying he is a gun owner and asking for “reasonable gun laws” like background checks.
You can watch one of the commercials below. Remember, this one man, this one Billionaire is responsible for most of the funding behind this effort. He says they have set up call centers and they are polling, and they have found that 90% of those they have polled are in favor of stronger gun laws, including background checks. Who does Mayor Bloomberg think is going to contact his call centers? I am surprised they are not getting 100% favorable calls. It is similar to the NRA, in that most of the people funding or contacting the NRA day to day are likely staunch 2nd Amendment Supporters.
Today LaPierre said that Bloomberg “Is going to find out that this is a country of the people, by the people and for the people and he can’t spend enough of his [money] to try to impose his will on the American public. They don’t want him in their restaurants, they don’t him in their homes, they don’t want him telling them what food to eat; they sure don’t want him telling them what self-defense firearms to own. And he can’t buy America,” LaPierre concluded.
