'The Constitution is not for sale, no matter how much money some wealthy demagogue is willing to spend'

A citizens Second Amendment group is urging gun owners to register to vote so they can help thwart a nationwide effort by Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg to back state-legislature candidates who support gun control.

"This is a call to action, for every gun owner in the country to get engaged," said Alan Gottlieb, the chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

"Last year he bought Virginia, now he's trying to buy the United States."

A group funded by Bloomberg called Everytown for Gun Safety is planning to spend at least $60 million on behalf of gun-control candidates in 2020, Gottlieb said.

In Virginia, Democrats have pushed an aggressive gun-control agenda since winning the majority in both houses of the state legislature in the last election.

Their agenda move prompted a recent rally in the state capital, Richmond, by tens of thousands of gun owners.

"Be sure you're registered to vote at your current address, and make sure your friends and family members are registered," Gottlieb said. "Start organizing get-out-the-vote efforts in your communities. Get involved in political campaigns and actively support candidates who support your rights, and above all, make protecting the Second Amendment your personal responsibility.

He said Bloomberg's wealth "does not give him the right to determine anyone else’s rights."

"America's gun owners can't let this country go on the auction block. There are no dollar signs on the Bill of Rights, not now, not ever."

Gottlieb said Virginia was a test of Bloomberg's "buying power."

"And look how that has worked out," he said. "Now his gun prohibition lobbying group is promising to roll out the big bucks to buy state legislative and congressional races nationwide. He is weaponizing his wealth in an attempt to purchase the presidency, along with Capitol Hill and every state legislature in hopes of forcing every American to live under his dictates."

Bloomberg's surrogates are focusing on Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

"Gun owners cannot allow Bloomberg to buy their gun rights," Gottlieb said. "The Constitution is not for sale, no matter how much money some wealthy demagogue is willing to spend."

He said that if anyone "thinks Bloomberg is scary as a candidate they will be downright terrified if he were to actually win the White House and have a majority of state and federal lawmakers beholden to him for getting them elected."

"That kind of power should never be allowed."

He said the anti-Second Amendment group is no longer "even being subtle."

"Their goal is to oust as many pro-rights public officials as possible this fall, paving the way for the kind of government our forefathers threw off 234 years ago," he said.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
