When this story hit the headlines, the team at concealedonline.com reviews took notice.
Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg is heading up a new gun control group that will spend $25 million against “concealed carry reciprocity” efforts and pro-gun candidates during the 2018 midterms.
Called Everytown for Gun Safety, the group formed in 2014 with $50 million from Bloomberg to counteract the NRA. It plans on putting its money where its’ mouth is to take on federal and state-level lawmakers as well as advocacy efforts against “concealed carry reciprocity.”
That bill, introduced in Congress earlier this year, gives gun owners the right to abide only by the gun laws in their own state, even when they’re in possession of a firearm in another state with stricter laws.
“THE NRA WANTS TO NORMALIZE CARRYING GUNS IN PUBLIC.”
Everytown president, John Feinblatt says: “This is a line in the sand on this issue, there’s no question about it. The NRA wants to normalize carrying guns in public. It’s not where the American public is.” “We’re putting people on notice today that we’re watching … and expect to hold people accountable.”
Hillary Clinton’s deputy director of state campaigns, Brynne Craig, and Eric Schultz, aide to President Barack Obama are expected to serve on the new group.
