The former NYC mayor's last two anti-gun groups weren't particularly effective, so he's rolling them into one new anti-gun group and bankrolling it with $50 million. Called "Everytown For Gun Safety", he's planning to set up shop in a dozen states, including Oregon and Washington. Evidently, he's banking on the Democrat nuts in Portland and Seattle to push more gun restrictions on everyone else in the two states.
He must not get out this way much; both states have boatloads of hunters, target shooters, and CCW permit holders. But hey, it's his money.
He's out to intimidate the NRA, which he considers to be evil.
“They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A. “ ‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’ ”
He added: “We’ve got to make them afraid of us.”
Not to be overly critical, but Bloomie seems to have an ego even larger than his bank accounts. State Senator Ginny Burdick (D-Portlandia) is doubtless wetting herself, as she's been trying to push anti-gun legislation through for years, to no avail.
Bloomie thinks that by targeting wimmin, the little darlins'll see his great wisdom and vote accordingly. Don't know about you, but I'm buying stock in Jolly Time, the popcorn company. And maybe Reddenbacher's.
