Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to spend $50 million in 2014 to build a “nationwide grass-roots network to motivate” anti-gun voters, the New York Times reports.
Basically, the billionaire wants to create the anti-Second Amendment version of the National Rifle Association. Eventually, he wants the group to be able to overpower the NRA. Bloomberg says gun control advocates should learn from the NRA and make sure there are consequences for failing to go along with their agenda.
Basically, he is spending this money in a desperate attempt to remain relevant and in the public eye. He can’t dictate how people live anymore, so now he wants to try to convince them to demand to be ruled over on their own. He isn’t a tough guy to figure out.
