Billionaire Heir Alex Soros Gives $100k In Support Of Prop 63

posted on October 8, 2016

We’ve reported that the California State Sheriff’s Association, along with tens of thousands of other public safety officials, have expressed opposition to California Proposition 63. Many of those opposed to the measure—a ballot initiative designed to make the exercise of Californians’ firearm freedoms so expensive and inconvenient that residents are discouraged from practicing them altogether—interact with criminals daily and know what sorts of laws will actually affect violent crime rates. 

So what about the measure’s supporters? Do they have a similar firsthand view of what laws like this might accomplish? In the case of Alex Soros, the answer is a resounding “No.” Soros—who’s given more than $100,000 to advance Prop 63—doesn’t even live in California. The Soroses have a long history of supporting anti-gun legislation that, due to their immense fortune and round-the-clock armed security, will never affect them at all.

So who should Californians trust on Prop 63? Law enforcement officials, or out-of-state billionaires with a grudge against gun owners?
