Deciding who to vote for is not always a simple process.  

One way to make it easier is to eliminate those candidates who you know for certain will not support and defend the Constitution, including of course one’s right to keep and bear arms.  

How does one find a list of such candidates?

Well, the Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund just released an updated list of its political endorsements.  

While there’s a good chance that many of these individuals are nice people, unfortunately, they’ve signed on to Michael Bloomberg’s civil disarmament campaign (the elitist billionaire is the majority donor behind Everytown).

Whether they know it or not, these candidates, if elected to office, are going to be impelled to push policies that work to incrementally repeal the 2A rights of law-abiding Americans.

As John Feinblatt, the president of Everytown, spun it in a press release on Monday, “The fact that so many candidates are running hard on gun safety is further proof that supporting common-sense laws to prevent gun violence isn’t just good policy — it’s also good politics.”

“Ending our gun violence epidemic requires passing strong gun safety laws, and that requires electing strong gun safety champions like the candidates we’re endorsing today,” he added.

Endorsed candidates will be expected to support bans on modern sporting rifles and standard capacity magazines, confiscatory red flag laws, waiting periods for firearm purchases, prohibitions on open carry, and criminalizing private transfers, among many other anti-2A measures.

These politicians will push these policies despite the fact that there is zero credible evidence that, what they call, “common-sense gun laws” reduce crime.

In fact, even a 2020 Bloomberg-funded study examining the efficacy of bans on black rifles found they have no effect on fatal mass killings!

Yet, Everytown’s “gun-sense candidates” will ignore the facts, the data, and the findings in their own studies to fulfill Bloomberg’s gun-grabbing agenda.
