With the critical midterm elections looming on the precarious cleft of the fate of the near future, a number of business owners are showing their true political colors and a disdain for basic rights. These individuals and corporations must be held accountable in contributing millions of dollars towards supporting anti-gun organizations, which in turn, aggressively lobby politicians to suppress law-abiding citizens through restrictive and unconstitutional legislation. To combat these nefarious elements, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) has compiled a dynamic list of anti-gun businesses, which is propagated through public records compiled from the Federal Elections Committee database. The goal of the project is to inform consumers as to which commercial entities are funding the gun control movement.
While a slew of corporate leaders recently signed an open letter to the Senate, urging lawmakers to enact extensive firearms control, the second such correspondence to politicians in the last three years has sparked a spending frenzy campaign epic proportions. Democrats are clearly experiencing hysteria stemming from the possibility that Biden will be a lame duck for the last two years of his reign and the fear is being manifested through the all-mighty dollar.
The latest additions to the CC anti-gun business list are a pair of firms based in the financial industry. John Vogelstein, who was involved with global private equity firm, Warburg Pincus, one of the major players in the investment game, donated 25k to Everytown for Gun Safety. While the veteran financial professional stepped down from the company in 2002, The FEC database lists Vogelstein as still associated with the group. Further research uncovered that various leaders of Warburg Pincus infused various Democratic PACS with lucrative sums of currency, the same leftist domains that are complicit in promoting gun control politicians. According to the consensus of the internet, Warburg Pincus is responsible for $85 billion of assets under management in the firms illustrious history.
The other culprit in lining the pockets of anti-gun activists is David Abrams of Abrams Capital. The financial professional gifted $175 thousand to Everytown. Seekingalpha.com reports that the investor possesses a 13F portfolio that is valued at $4.28 billion, and the Wall Street Journal has labeled him as a “one man wealth machine”. Abrams Capital holds over $9 billion in assets under management in total.
As failed presidential candidate and billionaire Michael Bloomberg is the figurehead in boosting organizations that refer to themselves as gun “safety” groups, it is crucial that Second Amendment supporters are enlightened as to the lesser-known names who are handing over mountains of cash to the anti-gun lobby. Everytown typically spends tens of millions of dollars per election cycle to support democratic candidates, and between now and November, the coalition is planning its current strategy to disarm Americans through purchasing chamber seats for unpatriotic and manipulatable bureaucratic pawns.
