Bloomberg Targets NRA: Hoping to be “Counterweight” to Gun Lobby
#1
http://www.guns.com/bloomberg-national-r...11384.html

Aside from a few radicals in the Democratic Party, very few politicians have the Chutzpah to outright challenge Washington’s most powerful lobbying group, the National Rifle Association.

For many lawmakers, it’s political suicide to speak out against America’s gun lobby or even to show tepid support for gun control (ask President Obama about this on Wednesday).

But New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg does not care about what’s potentially toxic for his political career (there were rumblings about aspirations to pursue the office of president). What he does care about, however, is subverting the 2nd Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and if that means taking on the NRA then so be it.

He’s made this abundantly clear with the formation of his new Super PAC, Independence USA, which is essentially a $15 million fund aimed at getting pro-gun control candidates at the city, state and federal level elected into office (for more on this, click here).

Maybe we should all join his Super PAC. Sabotage always works best from within.
