Remember when we told you about the millions of dollars Mayor Bloomberg spent on a special primary election in Illinois? Well Bloomberg is at it again.
New York Daily News is reporting that Mayor Bloomberg is spending $12 million on ads in 10 states targeting senators wavering on gun control, and that is just the beginning. This morning on Meet the Press, Mayor Bloomberg said he was “cautiously optimistic” about gun control legislation, and is going to be involved in the 2014 elections in a big way.
I have a responsibility … to try to make this country safer. If I can do that by spending some money, and taking the NRA from being the only voice to being one of the voices, so the public can really understand the issues, then I think my money will be well spent and I think I have an obligation to do that.
If 90% of the public wants something, and their representatives vote against that, common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that.
You can read more here. I keep saying this, but the 2014 elections are where gun control will be decided.
