Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agitators at The Trace don’t “do” irony. But they sure practice it. In their article The NRA’s Longstanding Campaign to Allow Guns in Public Housing Is Set for Its Latest Win, agitpropagandist Mike Spies seems blissfully unaware that he’s berating the NRA for doing exactly what his boss does. Like this . . .
The Maine bill [making it illegal to prohibit guns in public housing units] merely broadens the legal ruling made by the state Supreme Court in 1995, but its inevitable passage marks yet another symbolic victory for the NRA.
“That they’re going after the issue is not a surprise,” Spitzer says. “It’s part of their ongoing effort to press guns into every segment of public life.”
Chenette, a 24-year-old, second-term legislator, has found the experience bewildering.
“No group like the NRA should be able to fly into this state and tell lawmakers what to do,” he says.
No group like Everytown for Gun Safety? You know; the lobbying arm of Trace boss and New York resident Michael Bloomberg. The gun control group that’s parachuted money and personnel into Arizona, Colorado, Maine, Nevada, Oregon and Washington to influence legislators and promote civilian disarmament in every segment of public life.
Here’s an idea! Let’s rewrite Mr. Spies’ first paragraph substituting Everytown for the NRA.
As part of its broad campaign to sell the idea that guns belong nowhere in America, Everytown for Gun Safety has positioned itself as an advocate for the poor. Over several decades, the organization has worked assiduously to create gun bans across the country.
See how that works, Mike? No, I guess you don’t.
