Legislative battle lines have been drawn by a national grassroots gun rights organization whose headquarters are located “behind enemy lines” in western Washington, where anti-gun lawmakers have already introduced legislation to attack that state’s model preemption law.

The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms announced its intentions in a news release and on its website and Facebook page. The group’s chairman, gun rights veteran Alan Gottlieb, acknowledges that Second Amendment activists are up against a well-financed gun prohibition lobby that is using billionaire money as a political weapon.

CCRKBA claims some 650,000 members and supporters nationally.

“We need to raise at least $2.1 million for our direct and grassroots lobbying efforts to fund these priorities and advance gun rights,” Gottlieb explained. “That’s less than ten percent of the $25 million that billionaire Michael Bloomberg has pledged to advance his anti-gun rights agenda.”

Bloomberg - Elitist - Mayor - New - York

Bloomberg, the wealthy elitist former mayor of New York City, founded and bankrolled the anti-gun Everytown for Gun Safety by joining two other groups, Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

When Bloomberg founded Everytown for Gun Safety, he financed the group with $50 million. He has also spent millions more in efforts to influence elections in several states, including Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Colorado and Maine. He is not alone among wealthy anti-gunners whose dollars have fueled gun control efforts. Bill and Melinda Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Ballmer and Nick Hanauer are also identified as big bucks donors to gun control efforts, especially in the Evergreen State where they all live.
