WND just reported that Michael Bloomberg isn’t the only billionaire walking around with deep pockets and a rabid anti-gun agenda.
Apparently multiple billionaires have shelled out some eight million dollars on ensuring that Initiative 594 appears on Washington state’s November ballot:
The strategy in Washington relies on big money supplied by a few ultra-rich elites and, if successful, could serve as Bloomberg’s model for tightening the strings on gun owners nationwide.
Initiative 594 would not only require background checks for transactions at gun shows and over the Internet but also person-to-person sales and loaned guns. Even handing a firearm to a friend for a few moments during a hunting trip would trigger the need for a background check if Initiative 594 were to pass, critics say. The cost of the background check, to be borne by the gun owner, is yet to be determined.
Backers of the proposal are flush with cash, as nearly $8 million has been shoveled in their direction from wealthy businessmen such as Bloomberg, Gates, Ballmer, Seattle venture capitalist Nick Hanauer and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. (WND)
The idea is to spend big to flood Washingtonians with gun control propaganda in the lead up to November 4th.
Washington is just one state out of the dozen that Bloomberg and his billionaire buddies have spent some $50 million to get similar initiatives before voters. If they can’t repeal the Second Amendment, apparently they’ll just pay millions to brainwash people and circumvent it.
Can you imagine being a gun owner who lives in America, where we supposedly have the right to bear arms, but forcing your friend to go through a background check just for touching your gun on a hunting trip?
But, just as we’ve seen with California’s GMO labeling proposition, and as we see 91% of the time in Congressional elections in this country, he who has the most money almost always wins, regardless of what the people truly want. It’s America, where it’s money and propaganda — not the Constitution or the democratic process — that ultimately rules the day.
