Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to spend 50 million dollars on gun control.
The money will be spent through Bloomberg's new group, Everytown for Gun Safety, and will challenge the NRA.
The new organization plans to compete against the NRA by adopting its playbook. The NRA has built an impressive and effective organization that touts millions of members, a robust lobbying organization and a massive campaign arm.
A spokeswoman says the group plans to focus more on field work and less on TV ads."Everytown for Gun Safety" will serve as an umbrella organization for Bloomberg's "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" and "Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America" groups.
The NRA has had little to say in response to Bloomberg's plan. What do you think? Do you support Bloomberg's plan?
