Mike Bloomberg, billionaire, former mayor of New York City, erstwhile potential Democrat candidate for President, and funder of all things gun control put out this tweet yesterday evening.
Thank you to every @MomsDemand volunteer here in North Carolina for your leadership. State by state, we’re making progress to pass laws that will save lives, and you all deserve a lot of credit for that. pic.twitter.com/Ni0GmtFK4r

Yes, thank you for your continued support of a Jim Crow era law, the pistol purchase permit system, that was intended to keep African-Americans, union members, and Republicans disarmed.
Yes, thank you for your support of red flag laws that turn Due Process on its head and that will get innocent people killed.
Yes, thank you for making our schools less safe by your continued opposition to any policy that would let trained teachers and administrators carry firearms to protect the students under their care.
Yes, thank you for supporting efforts to introduce even more government interference into private affairs by demanding universal background check.
Yes, thank you for all you do to make North Carolina a less safe place for ordinary, law-abiding Tar Heels and more safe for criminals who, by definition, ignore the law.
There is plenty more for which we can thank the North Carolina contingent of Moms Demand Action but saving lives isn’t one of them.
