From the NY Daily News:

Bloomberg plans to spend $50 million of his vast fortune to bankroll grass-roots efforts to build a national network dedicated to passing stricter gun-control laws in America, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Bloomberg said the game plan calls for absorbing the gun control groups that he has funded — Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America — into an umbrella group known as Everytown for Gun Safety. They will focus enrollment efforts in 15 states, including such pro-gun strongholds as Texas, and seek to land a million new backers this year.

The strategy takes a long view of how to produce change on gun reform, and is designed to beat the National Rifle Association at its own game: developing the political clout needed to get lawmakers to back the group’s agenda — and to punish those who don’t.

Yeah, good luck in Texas….
