IN OTHER NEWS:GOA Countering Bloomberg's Agenda
It's tough being an anti-gun radical like Michael "Big Gulp" Bloomberg these days.
The former New York City Mayor has pumped millions of dollars into his fanatical effort to get gun control passed.
But that money was no match for the massive grassroots resistance that awaited him. Even liberal media outlets like National Public Radio were forced to report on the unparalleled strength of GOA's grassroots:
"Gun Owners of America showed with one email alert that it could help flood the phone lines on Capitol Hill days before the Senate vote." -- NPR, December 26, 2013
The result? Bloomberg lost an epic battle in the U.S. Senate last year -- even while media pundits predicted his minions would win.
Bloomberg trying to bypass state legislatures
Within the past year or so, the Bloomberg forces lost ground in several states and failed to pass expanded background checks in many places where GOA was active (like Nevada and New Hampshire). Having suffered so many defeats, Bloomberg is trying to make an end run around elected legislatures by forcing referendum votes around the country.
And to that effort, "Daddy Warbucks" has pledged $50 million in his crazed effort to remodel this country's gun laws to resemble England's.
Turning most gun owners into criminals
Bloomberg's first attempt at buying a state is in Washington. If he is successful in the Evergreen State, simply owning a gun -- without making a tiny mistake which would land you in jail -- will be like dancing barefoot in a pit of scorpions.
Bloomberg's proposal -- an initiative which will be voted on in the November election -- is 18 pages long. So the only thing most Washingtonians will know about it is the lies Bloomberg is paying to spew over the airwaves.
Bloomberg's minions have more than a dozen similar referendums planned around the country for 2015 and 2016.
All of this means that educating and mobilizing the grassroots -- and the next generation -- becomes even more important.
