Mike Bloomberg vows $25 million in 2018 to fight “concealed carry”

10 Apr , 2017  

Michael Bloomberg continues pouring tons money into pushing gun control.  Last November he spent $28 million on his two initiatives in Nevada and Maine.  From 2013 to 2016, Bloomberg donated a total of $48 million to candidates running for federal office. The NRA contributed a measly $2.1 million.  Now Bloomberg is going to spend $25 million going after concealed carry laws.  From Politico:

Mike Bloomberg’s gun control group is threatening to spend more than $25 million in 2018 races.

Everytown for Gun Safety, founded and funded by the billionaire former New York City mayor, is hiring several new top staffers and turning much of its attention to state legislatures, while moving to a defensive posture in Washington as it tries to stop what’s known as “concealed carry reciprocity” from becoming law. That will include starting to score Congressional votes, like the NRA does, to guide spending decisions more directly. . . .

Everytown is brandishing its significant spending in the 2016 New Hampshire Senate race that former Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte lost narrowly — the group targeted her for voting against background checks in 2013 — as a warning to other senators up in 2018 and possibly 2020 as well. . . .

    I am told Bloomberg hired many of the NYPD cops who were on his detail when mayor. They retired but are allowed to carry and protect him because he is special and feels better with armed security. They drive him around just like he is still mayor.
