Bill Gates Challenged to a Duel!
In the Washington Times article “Background Checks the focus: Dueling Gun Control initiatives in Seattle, Alan Gottlieb,Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Founder of the Second Amendment Foundation challenges billionaire Bill Gates to a rhetorical duel.
Bill Gates, following in the footstep of fellow billionaire fat-cat former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his big money donations to gun-grabbing initiatives, has ponied up $1 million to support Washington State Initiative 594.
In a proverbial high noon at the OK Coral, Gottlieb tells the Washington Times:
It’s time for Gates to put his mouth where his money is. It’s one thing to be for background checks, but I-594 is [a] poorly written, bad law, and all the money in the world won’t make it better.
Stating that big money donations cannot fool people into supporting shoddy gun control state legislation, Gottlieb wants Gates to explain himself.
If Gates accepts, I expect him to explain why he thinks I-594 is such a hot idea when the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs, and the Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association — the largest and most highly respected law enforcement groups in the state — oppose the measure,.
Gottlieb sarcastically notes:
Gates should also make sure that if he accepts, his bodyguards do not loan each other firearms, because that would be prohibited under the language of the gun control initiative he’s funding. I won’t bring bodyguards, because I don’t have any. My defense is the facts.
The proposed legislation will be on the public ballot in the fall and would require background checks for all gun sales and transfers in Washington — gun shows and private transactions included.
