Meet Michael Bloomberg

Defend Freedom. Defeat BloombergMichael Bloomberg, one of the richest people in the world, has dedicated his $33 billion dollar fortune to taking away your freedom. As mayor of New York city he presided over what many have dubbed a “nanny state” where he tried to control every facet of people’s lives including how much and what they could eat and drink. Now he has committed to spending $50 million dollars in order to take away your Second Amendment rights.

Bloomberg recently announced that his gun-control organizations, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” and “Moms Demand Action,” will now be folded into a new anti-gun group—“Everytown for Gun Safety.”

Women are now Bloomberg’s top targets—especially mothers. The core of his campaign will be to spread misinformation and terrify mothers about guns in order to enact his radical anti-gun agenda. He has dedicated unlimited resources to his efforts. But money doesn’t always win.

In 2013, Bloomberg invested millions in anti-gun efforts and despite the post Sandy Hook environment he accomplished virtually nothing at the federal level, and much less than he had hoped for at the state level. In 2014 he is doubling down on his anti-gun efforts. The website meetbloomberg.com is dedicated to exposing the real Michael Bloomberg and his anti-freedom agenda.

For Gun Control Advocates, Exaggeration is Standard Practice

By Larry Keane, National Shooting Sports Foundation

Recently, we wrote a letter to the editor of USA Today to correct inaccuracies in an article about a new Everytown for Gun Safety “study”.  In that study, the team at the Bloomberg-funded Everytown was following in the footsteps of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence in willfully misconstruing key facts.

At a June Brady Campaign Washington state rally, complete with props for television coverage intended to tug at heartstrings, the organization asserted that nine children die every day across the U.S. from gunshot wounds. While we agree that any accidental death is a genuine tragedy, the figure seemed high – and not just to us. And so our tale begins.

When asked about the number, the Brady Campaign said it was sourced from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) database, 2007-2011, at the same time revising the number downward by one.

It turns out, however, that an even more telling attempt to mislead was in play.

As Politifact reported, what the Brady Campaign neglected to mention is that the CDC’s data includes “children” aged 0-19. Important, but unnoted by the campaign, over half the accidental deaths were among 18 and 19 year olds. Additionally, approximately half the cases of unintentional injuries were also from 18 and 19 year olds. Politifact found that if this age group is removed from the calculation, the number of accidental deaths drops by 50 percent to 4 and the number of intentional injuries decreases to 5.

This discrepancy is significant. After all, those who are 18 can vote and join the military, which is hardly the province of “children” as most people define the term.
