The National Rifle Association is taking the fight to billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who has vowed to spend $50 million in the upcoming election to defeat pro-Second Amendment officeholders and candidates. The announcement came days after Bloomberg’s effort against Milwaukee Country Sheriff David A. Clarke was turned back in a primary election.
According to a release by the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the campaign targeting the former New York City mayor intends to “expose Bloomberg's hypocrisy, arrogance and desire to tell the American people how to live their lives.” Bloomberg has not only pushed gun control, but also sought to ban sodas larger than 16 ounces while he was mayor of New York City.
The first ad, titled “Insult,” has been released, and points viewers to a website called MeetBloomberg.com, which provides more details about Bloomberg’s agenda and list of items he tried to restrict or ban, including tanning, Styrofoam containers, and composting.
