New Evidence Links Billionaire Michael Bloomberg To March For Our Lives

The event, which has received nearly $3 million in funding on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe, has also received massive support from the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, which is largely funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

In response to the Parkland, Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead, Cameron Kasky, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, announced the formation of a new group called “March for Our Lives.” The goal of the group is to host a march primarily in Washington, D.C., but with offshoots across the country, demanding gun control.

The event has been called a “grassroots movement” organized by students concerned about gun violence, and their mission statement directly states that the organization is “created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country”. But after digging a little bit deeper into their website, doubt is cast on that statement, and instead shows that the group is receiving immense support from much more established anti-gun movements, who may have a larger influence than is being let on.

The event, which has received nearly $3 million in funding on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe, is also lined up to receive massive support from the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety, which is largely funded by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Everytown for Gun Safety has pledged to spend $2.5 million supporting marches like it.

But it’s not just money that the massive gun control group is bringing to the so-called “student-run” movement. The Bloomberg-run gun control group is also providing support, both monetary and organizational to sister-marches across the country that are supported by the March for Our Lives organization.

On the March for Our Lives Website, the only direct mentions of Everytown for Gun Safety take place on the FAQ page, where the group is mentioned four times. In the FAQs, it is laid out that Everytown for Gun Safety is offering a $5,000 grant to mitigate the costs of qualifying sister marches outside of Washington, D.C, and stated that the group will help with coordination efforts for those marches.

But with a little bit more digging, a stronger connection between the two groups is found.  On the page where students can go to get their event listed on the March for Our Lives website, there is a handy link that goes to an “Event Toolkit.” The Event Toolkit has March for Our Lives branding, and is hosted on the Everytown for Gun Safety website. Despite that, there is no mention of Everytown for Gun Safety in the document. There is a link purported to display potential coalition partners, but it goes to a protected Google Drive link.

The document lays out advice on hosting the event, from determining roles for local organizers, to recruiting speakers, including local elected officials,  and getting press attention.

It is unclear if the document was produced by March for Our Lives, or Everytown for Gun Safety, but the link being hosted on the Everytown website casts doubt on any illusion of it being produced by students. It opens up many questions about the influence of more organized gun control activists in the organization.

If more established activists are heavily involved, it also presents the question of whether they actually want to gain credit for these events, or if they want to keep the illusion of them being student-run.

2.5 Million Guns Sold In March, SMASHING Previous US Record For Gun Buys

Americans want their guns.

Published

on

Federal firearms licensees sold more than 2.5 million guns to the American public in March 2020, easily smashing the previously held record for the most gun sales in an individual month by more than a million transactions.

The gun sale data has been gauged by Small Arms Analytics, and the estimation of a total of 2,583,238 sales has been pulled from raw FBI National Instant Criminal Background Checks System data. It’s actually possible that the total figure of guns sales is a bit higher, considering gun sales between private individuals are not subject to the NICS system.

Not only does the figure of 2.5 million gun sales surpass the previous monthly record holder from March 2019, but it does so in a resounding fashion. 1.4 million guns were sold in that month, meaning that March 2020 surpassed the record by approximately 1.1 million sales.

A breakdown of the sales between long guns and handguns was provided by Small Arms Analytics. Handgun sales in particular spiked exponentially, easily surpassing previous quarterly highs in gun sales that preceded major American elections.

An alternate system of quantifying gun purchases utilized by the National Shooting Sports Foundation verified that March was in fact a record-setting month for gun sales.

The surge in gun and ammunition sales in the wake of the nascent Chinese coronavirus epidemic is well documented at this point, with gun and ammunition retailers reporting selling out their entire inventories and still not coming close to meeting demand.

As Americans arm themselves in unprecedented record-setting numbers, some major American municipalities and states have taken it upon themselves to wholly shut down the lawful firearms commerce and manufacturing industries. However, several of them have been stopped cold in their tracks, in light of federal guidelines from the Trump administration that recognizes businesses serving the Second Amendment community as “essential.”

New Jersey and Los Angeles County are among the two biggest governmental entities forced to walk back arbitrary commands that gun stores close in light of the guidelines.

Dubious state of emergency declarations that try to implement backdoor gun control in a hour where more Americans are seeking to lawfully arm themselves than ever before simply aren’t going to work, judging from historical amounts of armaments freedom-loving patriots have secured in the last month alone.
