Billionaire Pledges $25 Million To Fight National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity

posted on April 11, 2017

In an attempt to stop national concealed-carry reciprocity, billionaire gun-ban advocate Michael Bloomberg is threatening to spend $25 million in order to sway legislators up for re-election in 2018. 

According to Politico, Everytown president John Feinblatt said, “The NRA wants to normalize carrying guns in public. It’s not where the American public is. We’re putting people on notice today that we’re watching … and that we expect to hold people accountable.” 

Despite Feinblatt’s bluster and Bloomberg’s billions, they have a losing record in elections. Voters elected enough pro-gun candidates in 2016 to control the presidency and both houses of Congress; they also control more than twice as many state legislatures as anti-gun forces. Pro-gun rights governors also outnumber anti-gunners by a similar margin. 

Still, Bloomberg’s wealth has swayed some elections: He spent $20 million to get Nevada’s “universal” background check proposal passed by 0.8 percent margin—an astounding $35.30 per vote.
