BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today reacted to the announcement from anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg that he would finance his own presidential campaign if he decides to run by advising the former New York mayor that “the White House and our Constitutional Rights are not for sale.”
“Michael Bloomberg has been bankrolling extremist gun prohibition efforts for years, because he evidently believes his riches entitle him to tell the rest of the nation how he thinks we should live, and what rights we can exercise,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “There is not enough money in his bank account to buy our liberty, and that for sure includes the Second Amendment rights he so despises.”
Bloomberg’s billions have backed the Everytown for Gun Safety and Moms Demand Action organizations. He has weaponized his wealth to wage a war of demagoguery against American gun owners and erode a cornerstone of our Bill of Rights, Gottlieb said. He has bankrolled anti-rights citizen initiatives and anti-gun political campaigns.
