Millionaires and Billionaires Finance Gun Confiscation Laws in Washington State


Led by Gabby Giffords, who was shot by a liberal unhappy that she voted with republicans on a bill in the House is in Washington state buoyed with millions of dollars donated by the likes of Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg is saying that universal background checks are not enough and are supporting gun confiscation laws for Washington state.  The new law would allow family members to have guns confiscated solely on the basis that they ask the court to seize them.  The law is based on one in California.  The seizure is supposedly temporary but in California, getting your guns back and unscathed is not an easy thing.

Steve and Connie Ballmer, who donated $580,000 to help pass universal background checks in Washington are planning to contribute big bucks for the new confiscation law.  Michael Bloomberg, through his Everytown USA has already kicked in $50,000.  Other expected donors are Bill Gates and his wife who contributed 1 million for universal gun registration and  Nicolas Hanauer gave $1 million, who also contributed one million.

An estimated 1,500 people showed up to hear Giffords to speak and to support gun confiscation in their state.  That’s several times less than the overflow crowd at a Donald Trump rally.  The law is up for a vote in the November elections and could give Trump a boost from gun owners tired of seeing their Second Amendment rights being diluted by the left wing fanatics in their state.

Seattlepi.com reported on Giffords’s visit to support the confiscatory orders contained in Initiative 1491. The outlet quoted Giffords urging a crowd of about 1,500 to support I-1491, saying, “We must never stop fighting! Fight, fight, fight. Be bold, be courageous. The nation is counting on you.” Giffords’s husband Mark Kelly traveled with her, and he explained that they support the initiative over legislation because it allows them to get around the opposition to confiscatory orders that currently prevails in the U.S. Congress as well as the Washington state legislature.
