Bloomberg is pushing a background check initiative in Nevada this election cycle and Sebastian at Shall Not Be Questioned reported last week that the Bloomberg funded group Nevadans for Background Checks has just made sure our side has no way to get our message out over the airwaves between September and Election Day when people will be focusing on the election:
This effectively prevents our side from being heard on Nevada’s Question 1. Bloomberg is using his billions to silence your voices. Our voices. We’re only going to win this with grassroots, folks. We simply do not have the money to play this game at Bloomberg’s level. We have to beat him with people on the ground. If we don’t, he’s going to come back again, and again, and again, and keep playing this game until we lose half a dozen more states like California, New York, and New Jersey are lost.
Bloomberg tried to buy the Virginia State Senate last year and failed, winning only one of the races in which he spent millions. Virginia is not an initiative state like Nevada but that doesn’t mean he won’t find other ways to get what he wants here. With California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsome pushing anti-rights initiatives in that state and Bloomberg pushing initiatives in Nevada and Arizona, what starts out west eventually ends up in Virginia. Now is the time to volunteer your time to elect pro-gun candidates. That is the only way we will win.
