    It might be time for a donation to the NRA-ILA.

    From the WaPo:

    Everytown, gun control group, turns on spigot in Virginia elections with $1 million

    Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, the campaign arm of one of the nation’s biggest gun control groups, announced Thursday that it would spend at least $1 million in Virginia as part of an “initial investment” to elect Democrats in November.

    The fund is donating $450,000 directly to gubernatorial contender Ralph Northam, and spending $250,000 on mailers on his behalf. It’s also giving $300,000 to Attorney General Mark Herring for his re-election bid, as he faces attack advertising from the National Rifle Association.

    “We are making this initial investment because Ralph Northam and Mark Herring have been forceful champions for gun violence prevention in Virginia, while their opponents subscribe to a dangerous ‘guns everywhere’ agenda,” Brynne Craig, a senior strategist for Everytown, said in a statement.

    Everytown, a New York-based advocacy group largely bankrolled by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has been a big spender in recent Virginia contests.

    Virginia just needs a good old fashioned hurricane and the resulting looters breaking into those Richmond and Williamsburg homes to get good people wanting to keep their RKBA unencumbered. When the police can't get to them but the criminals can they'll get their wake up call.

    Richmond and Williamsburg are not the real problem areas. It is NOVA.

    How much of Bloomberg's net worth is that? Has anyone actually gotten the money yet? Is this an emergency election? It's not going to religious dems, is it?




    Seriously....Dems funding their lunacy vs Trump helping disaster victims out of his own pocket, but who catches the grief? Leftists are worse than dogtish
