Totally Moderate Joe Biden Receives Endorsement From Biggest Gun Grabber Group

They keep telling us that Joe Biden is a moderate Democrat. Compared to Comrade Bernie, perhaps. But, it’s like comparing Castro to Stalin.

Major gun safety group endorses Joe Biden’s presidential bid

Joe Biden has received the endorsement of one of the nation’s largest gun control advocacy groups, Everytown for Gun Safety, in the latest sign that Bernie Sanders’ spotty record on guns may be weighing him down in the presidential primary.

Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund plans to spend $60 million on electoral activities this cycle, some of which will go toward trying to elect Biden. An Everytown spokesman said the group typically airs advertisements and engages in grassroots organizing for the candidates it endorses, though it’s unclear when the group will begin to spend on Biden’s behalf. The group also boasts 6 million supporters and more than 375,000 grassroots donors, numbers that could help boost attention and support for Biden’s presidential bid nationwide.

In an interview with The Associated Press, John Feinblatt, head of Everytown for Gun Safety, said the group chose Biden because working for gun control is “his past, it’s his present, it’s his future.” Asked if Sanders’ record on gun control factored into the group’s decision, Feinblatt said that the group looks at a candidate’s “total record.”

“You can’t confine yourself to just what somebody says they’ll do in the future. You have to look at what they’ve done in the past,” he said. “Unquestionably, Joe is a person who’s dedicated much of his life to the issue of gun safety.”

Would this be the same Joe Biden who told everyone to just get a shotgun, and shoot it through the door? Or the one who served as VP to a guy who ran a gun program, Fast and Furious, which lost over 2,000 guns to Mexican gangs, which were used to wound hundreds and kill many more, including two U.S. federal agents? And showed up in the hands of jihadis in France?

Second, is this legal within the framework of a 501(c)(3) designation? Political endorsements and essentially campaigning for them is not allowed.

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.

They cannot claim it is for “educational” purposes: this is directly supporting a candidate. And they are not gun safety, they are gun control. They are for taking away the gun rights of U.S. citizens. And, they are all backed by Mike Bloomberg.

    Everytown for Gun Safety does not advocate the confiscation or “grabbing” of guns. They don’t even advocate a ban on AR-15 type rifles.

    They advocate for stricter background checks, restrictions on those guilty of domestic violence, restrictions on gun trafficking, gun safety technology and gun safe storage, bump stock bans, and restrictions on magazine capacity.

    Should they sue Mr TEACH for defaming them? Right-wing media is the Enemy of the People!!

      Everytown is one of those blanket outfits that acts as a front for other organizations. It’s mobbed up with Moms Demand Action and Bloomie. Very bland in its statements, but, again, they’re a front.

      Everytown for Gun Safety’s president is John Feinblatt, a former policy advisor with Michael Bloomberg’s mayoral office.

      bump stock bans, and restrictions on magazine capacity.

      Need we say more?

    Bloomberg told them to endorse Biden, so they are. Puppets dance on their strings.

    Remember Jeffery wetting his pants because Trump called the Gov of WA a snake for taking a political cheap shot over the flu?

    Well, look how the worm (yes, he’s still a snake, too) has turned.

    Seems Jay Inslee is feeling the political heat for playing politics with the flu. Suddenly, he complimenting the Feds (meaning Trump) on all their help.

    Remember, if this was Zippy, Inslee would have been left hung out to dry.
