The well-funded campaign was launched in January and so far, more
than 250,000 anti-gunners have signed an online petition urging Obama
and Congress to implement Bloomberg’s freedom grabbing legislation.
Bloomberg claims, “It is time for Washington to listen to the
250,000 Americans that have signed our petition and take
action: since the Tucson shooting more than 1,300 people
have been killed with guns in the United States and that
number continues to grow.”
Clearly, gun hater Bloomberg is taking full-advantage of a terrible
tragedy to push his radical gun control politics.
The liberal-backed campaign already has the full support of the
