    The rich are deathly afraid of the working men and women of America. They want you controlled period and will pay any amount to see that it happens.
    Pony up some support to 591.

    Michael Bloomberg Gives $1 Million Toward Washington State Gun Control

    On August 29, Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety confirmed plans to give $1 million to Initiative 594, the gun control push in Washington state.
    This means Bloomberg is coming alongside other one-percenters--like Bill Gates, Nicolas Hanauer, and Steve Ballmer--to heave gun control onto the shoulders of Washington state residents.

    As Breitbart News reported on August 26, Gates and his wife have given $1 million for the gun control push, Hanauer has given well over a $1 million, and Ballmer and his wife have given nearly $600,000.

    The gun control they are supporting--Initiative 594--will require an end to private gun sales in the state of Washington so that every gun buyer, whether buying from a sporting goods store or a neighbor, will have to go through the same background checks Elliot Rodger (Santa Barbara gunman), Ivan Lopez (2014 Ft. Hood gunman), Paul Ciancia (LAX gunman), Aaron Alexis (D.C. Navy Yard gunman), Nidal Hasan (2009 Ft. Hood gunman), and James Holmes (Aurora theater gunman) went through to get their guns.

    The Seattle Times reported that the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is not impressed with Bloomberg's decision to enter the fray in the Washington state gun control push, but it is not surprised, either. Committee Chairman Alan Gottlieb said, "It looks more like 'Every Billionaire for Gun Control' wants to buy this election. Voters should be very concerned that their rights are for sale."

    He is afraid, no doubt. Because of what he has done in his past.
