    Wash. activists battling billionaire bucks over gun rights, privacy

    Another big bucks infusion from billionaire Steve Ballmer and his wife, Connie to the Initiative 594 campaign, reported by the Seattle P-I.com, shows what Washington state grassroots gun rights activists are up against in their battle to prevent government gun confiscation without due process, while also resisting what they consider an extremist gun control measure that even the state’s rank-and-file police and sheriff’s deputies oppose.

    This is more evidence of the rich pushing their controlling agenda. If the they have all this money, why do they ask for more? I like to know my enemies, so I get their emails.
    People really need to try and scrape together some kind of donation to 591.

    Friend --

    Which do you want first -- the good news, or the bad?

    Here's the bad: One third of the voters who support universal background checks ALSO support the gun lobby's ballot measure that would prevent Washington from having universal background checks.

    Crazy, right?

    Now, the good news: We know how to beat this. We know exactly what voters need to hear to clear up this confusion, and we are ready to have hundreds of thousands of conversations with voters all across the state. We just need the resources to fuel our campaign -- and one of our supporters has agreed to match every grassroots donation between now and Au‌g‌ust 1‌5, up to $20,000.

    Click here to chip in $3 right now, and make it worth $6!

    It's that simple -- we need to have a conversation with hundreds of thousands of our friends and neighbors to clear things up. And we need your help to do it.

    Will you help us fight the gun lobby's attempt to trick our voters?

    Chip in $3 right now, and it'll be DOUBLED.

    Thanks for your help,

    These micro-donations are really driving the money-pool for the anti's. A guy who doesn't even think about a $25 single donation will probably make 2, 3, $3 donations. Better than nothing. And it adds up. It's how the Giffords have made a lot of their donations (I get their emails ;))

    Then every time you do, kick in $5 to the POGR campaign. And encourage all your hunting and shooting pals to do likewise.
