As if Bloomberg's billions were not enough--Joyce Foundation funds Illegal Mayors Against Guns

I've written plenty about NYC Mayor (emperor?) Michael Bloomberg. David Codrea informs us that Bloomberg, after having the law changed to allow him to continue his reign over New York, is on a pace to spend over $100 million of his own money on his re-election campaign. That's $35,000 per hour--which he can afford to do, I suppose, with an estimated net worth of over $17.5 billion.

I've also written plenty about Bloomberg's pet project, Mayors Against Illegal Guns--or, as I like to call them, Illegal Mayors Against Guns (although in fairness, I should acknowledge that there are still some in the group who have not been charged with any crimes--yet).

Finally, I've also written about the Joyce Foundation, and the millions they spend on furtherance of the forcible citizen disarmament agenda.

Basically, I knew that the Joyce Foundation and Bloomberg shared the same subversive ideology, but it hadn't occurred to me that Joyce would find grants to Bloomberg's Illegal Mayors Against Guns group an efficient use of their money, given his willingness to spend vast sums of his own.

Shows what I know: $175,000 in each of the years 2006 and 2007.

The forcible citizen disarmament lobby--the best "grass roots" millions of dollars can buy.

They have billions of dollars and the naked force of the government behind them. We have our numbers, our iron will, our willingness to work and sacrifice, and our moral courage--along with the moral high ground that courage has bought us. Oh--and we also have millions of firearms, and billions of rounds of ammo.

Bring it on, anti-gunners.

Update: Wow--that didn't take long:
