Notoriously self-serving and self-funding billionaire and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg is pledging $80 million for congressional candidates supporting gun control in the hopes of flipping the House of Representatives accordingly.
He did however give a shout out to Republican Senators John McCain (AZ) and Pat Toomey (PA) for breaking with the NRA to support knee-jerk legislation in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School attack.
We’re wondering how this isn’t equivalent to aiding and abetting the red coats as they marched on their way to Lexington and Concord to disarm the colonials.
We should remind Bloomberg that that episode did not end well for the British.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Gun control proponent Michael Bloomberg is donating $80 million to Democrat candidates in hopes of flipping the House of Representatives to a pro-gun control position.
Congress has failed, legislatively & constitutionally. We need new leadership that will re-assert Congress as a co-equal branch of government. In the midterm elections, I will be supporting Democrats & their bid to take over the House. My full statement: https://t.co/JWmUegL4J1
