Bloomberg-Backed Groups Double Down on Upcoming Elections

The gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety, one of the handful of groups funded by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, released its first round of endorsements for the U.S. Senate recently. Despite his failed presidential bid, Bloomberg is still using his fortune against the Second Amendment.

The group’s U.S. Senate endorsements includes 11 candidates, including Bloomberg’s fellow failed presidential candidate John Hickenlooper (D), and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who previously joined four other senators in openly threating the U.S. Supreme Court last November.

One of the endorsees, North Carolina State Sen. Cal Cunningham (D), lists his intentions to “ban the sale of high-capacity magazines” and “pass extreme risk laws,” otherwise known as red-flag laws, as two of his priorities on his campaign website.

Another, MJ Hegar (D), who is running in Texas, lists her desires to “stop the sale of assault weapons,” to “pass red flag laws” and to “end open carry” on her  website

The reality is that each of these endorsees are in lockstep with Bloomberg’s agenda, who is throwing his massive fortune behind each of them to achieve his goals.

“Everytown is going all-in to flip the Senate,” Everytown President John Feinblatt said in a press release. “To the opponents of the incredible candidates we have endorsed today, your days of ignoring America’s gun violence crisis are numbered,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, an anti-freedom group  absorbed by Bloomberg and his billions, in the same release.

Clearly, our Second Amendment freedoms are on the ballot this November, as anti-freedom groups like Everytown, which have pledged to spend a minimum of $60 million nationwide in this election cycle, seek to curtail your constitutional rights. Just a few weeks ago, Bloomberg’s group also released more than 50 endorsements for members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Everytown also endorsed, unsurprisingly, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, who has made no secret of his animus towards the Second Amendment.

Everytown spent at least $30 million during the 2018 midterms and, if the results in Virginia are any indicator of how these politicians treat your constitutional rights, they fully intend to come for your guns.
