Bloomberg sets his sights on the NRA

by American Firearms Review  |  published on November 22, 2012

Michael Bloomberg, New York City’s nanny extraordinaire mayor, has been targeting the National Rifle Association for a long time. Bloomberg, an anti-gun fanatic, is one of the least gun-friendly politicians in America. But now he’s going a step further, looking to make himself the new “anti-gun lobby sheriff”, as National Journal reports:

As independent Michael Bloomberg nears his final year as New York City mayor, the billionaire is laying the groundwork to become a one-man counterweight to one of the nation’s most powerful lobbies: the National Rifle Association.

In recent days, Bloomberg has used his massive wealth to wade into five House races in five different states, on behalf of candidates on both sides of the aisle. The common thread: Bloomberg is either backing candidates how are supportive of gun control measures, or trying to oust those who aren’t, in his view. The late injection of millions in television ads and mailers has dramatically reshaped some of the contests, including one in California where Bloomberg’s last-minute spending spree amounts to more than double what both candidates themselves have spent — combined.

Bloomberg is the tenth-richest man in America with endless political connections and influence. Anyone who cares about their Second Amendment rights should start watching him carefully.
