Michael Bloomberg is now pouring in $50 million of his own money to set up his own group to support gun control. The money will go to local outreach in 15 states where Bloomberg believes he can convince moms to support his gun control efforts. The NRA currently spends about $20 million on similar outreach activities, so they will be instantly outspent by over two to one by Bloomberg.

Don’t expect any of the faux outrage that we have seen from the left over the spending of the Koch brothers to be aimed at Mr. Bloomberg. Bloomberg and other mega-rich think they can simply buy public opinion. But they forget one thing, facts matter. And the facts are on the side of the NRA. The NRA does not have to outspend Bloomberg to win. The NRA just needs to spend enough to get the facts out.

I think we can classify this under “stupid things rich people do with their money.”
