Most of those groups are funded by a few billionaires-Michael Bloomberg, Bill Gates, Steve Balmer to name a few.

I remembered these names but a quick search confirmed, as well as more

It is funny when some confused people say the NRA support is "old white guys" when the dat clearly shows otherwise, in fact NRA support is growing and broadening demographics -- and it is the people giving money to gun control lobby that are all very old white guys!

The gun control lobby is now up to 250 to 300 paid full time professionals spread across 35 organizations. It has one c3 charitable group whose main activity is teaching other gun control lobby groups how to use c3 status to fund most of the political activities.

this is part of the reason these groups are rebranding from "gun control" as "gun safety."

Hopefully it is only a matter of time till this growing and broadening group realizes that Democrat=GunGrabber, without exception, and changes their voting patterns to match.

I recently took the DC CCW training at MSAR. The class was 85% black, and the general customer-base at the range was probably about the same. I was thrilled to see so many non-white males exercising their 2A rights. But of that 85%, how many do you think still vote for Dems, time after time?

They were probably getting CCW as an armed guard (nothing to do with 2A rights). Changing voting choices is very hard for most people even if they know they should.

I have to challenge your conclusion. Just as others draw conclusions that "all 2A proponents are deranged violent gun nuts", be careful with the generalizations. If they/we are taking the class and paying the cost to apply, then they/we already defy the generalizations about us (unemployed uneducated felons). Remember DC background check and qualifications (mental health, drugs, violence, criminal history) are probably very thorough.

I have never registered with a political party, and have always advocated for the protection of all constitutional rights especially 2A.

I'm not sure what the percentage of registered voters to elegible population in the are is, but I believe that if black folks were as baught and paid for as some believe, Miss Hillary would be president (I'm glad that didn't happen)

No for the most part they are but they just saw thru all her BS and liked what Trump had to say. I believe he even pulled out the old, "what have you got to lose?"

The instructor had the people taking the course for the MD W&C guard permit raise their hands. Only one out of a class of 18.
