(Tea Party PAC) – Democrat presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg, who is green with envy that the New York billionaire in the White House is not himself, is now dumping millions on an ad advocating for strict gun control for this Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Because of course he is.
Before he threw his hat in the ring for the 2020 Democratic campaign, Bloomberg spent most of his time fighting against the Second Amendment rights of everyday Americans, under the guise of simple concern for the welfare of communities and children.
HIs organizations Everytown and Moms Demand are usually the driving force behind any gun control hysteria that follows a mass shooting, accurate understanding of gun violence statistics not required.
So naturally, now that he’s running for president, he is willing to put his own money towards advocating for your rights to be taken away.
Bloomberg has dumped $10 million on an advertisement, which features mourning mother Calandrian Simpson Kemp, whose 20-year-old son George Kemp Jr. was shot and killed in 2013.
A “first look” of Bloomberg’s Super Bowl spot was published by MSNBC’s Morning Joe.
It begins with Simpson Kemp saying that her son, George, “started playing football when he was four years old. He would wake up every Saturday, ready for the game. That became our life. He had aspirations about going to the NFL.”
She continues, “On a Friday morning, George was shot, George didn’t survive.”
This is of course heart-wrenching.
What it isn’t is a good argument as to why law-abiding citizens need to be stripped of their constitutional rights, but then again, what is from the gun-grabbing left.
On September 27, 2013, the Houston Chronicle reported that Kemp was shot just around midnight after allegedly pulling into a Richmond, Texas, neighborhood, calling an individual on his cell phone, and challenging him to a fight.
Bloomberg suggested the ad shows the need for universal background checks and other gun controls.
Politico quoted him saying, “Calandrian’s story is a powerful reminder of the urgency of this issue and the failure of Washington to address it. People will be rooting for different teams in the Super Bowl, but virtually all Americans — including people in both parties and a majority of gun owners — support universal background checks and other common sense gun laws.”
