Bloomberg needs to be tarred and feathered.

There are a lot of really rich folks in the world. Many have agendas. Many do not. We usually hear about the bbergs. We almost never hear about the generous donations given by those with out an agenda.

Why would that be?

The NRA should run ads to counter.

He is the mayor of NY but "The new ads will air in 13 states the group believes are divided on gun control: Arkansas, Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio and Pennsylvania." Hopefully, the citizens of those states will question why he would put 12 million behind ads in states other than his own...

Keep in mind ad campaigns also stoke the fire within pro-2A people. So long as we clearly and politely articulate basic weapons education, no matter how much Bloomberg spends it won't matter.

Last year he gave 220 million to combat tobacco use. This guy just wants everybody to be all healthy and skinny and gun-free and have no cavities or bad cholesterol.

It's the truth. We are all guinea pigs for his little hobby of trying to "prevent unnecessary death" in his mind. Dude is OCD, he studies ****ing charts and statistics because he is obsessed with reducing the death rate by whatever means: diabetes, obesity, guns, tobacco, cancer, etc.... He has openly admitted that he is proud that NYC's average life expectancy is like 2 years more than the national average according to him.

He started off in NYC and now he is expanding nationally, soon to be followed by some sort of international campaign I am sure.

His money, his right to do with it as he pleases. We just need to counter as best we can be grouping together and fighting in the right places.

I am really starting to hope they just divide up the country and let the libs go there own way. All of this endless arguing is never going to end and is just throwing billions of dollars away that could be better spent. The only ones getting rich off of this horse **** are the networks and the ****ing lawyers.

Bloomberg is an idiot with more money than sense. He is a business genius but that is where it ends.

The blood of the innocent lives sacrificed by the failed delusional anti-gun agenda -

Is on the hands of the liberal political hacks pushing it -

And those who blindly support them.

God will judge them much harsher than we ever could -

May they burn in hell forever.......

I think I'm already there. We can take our half with the Constitution, BOR, and Founding Fathers. God, Family, Country. Mom, the Flag, and Apple Pie. They can have their police/nanny Marxist paradise.

And we should all be short too. A Chihuahua has a right not be afraid when in presence of other dogs, even if those dogs are not in any way threatening it. If a Chihuahua has to bark, it's not because it's insecure, but because those other dogs look mean...

Bloomberg is a racist, sexist & a classist. That guy is a douche even by Liberal standards, but he's rich. Somebody needs to put together a well thought out & well funded info campaign to show people what a douche this guy is.

A spokesman for the National Rifle Association blasted Bloomberg and the new ads, saying NRA members and supporters would be calling senators directly and urging them to vote against proposed gun control legislation.

"What Michael Bloomberg is trying to do is ... intimidate senators into not listening to constituents and instead pledge their allegiance to him and his money,"

Considering he is "hitting" local markets, rather than nationally, he can leverage more bang for his bucks. I wonder how many ads will air for just 12 million though and whether they will be "prime time" or general viewing.
