You have to hand it to the gun prohibitionists. Those that don’t have Mike Bloomberg’s money at their disposal will find any reason to ask for money. This is especially true of that cult of personality known as Giffords.
Here is the subject line of their latest email missive asking for money.
Gabby and Mark need you to rush an emergency donation to help us stop Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to serve on the Supreme Court. Let me explain why this request is so important.
Don’t wait. Don’t think about it. Send money now. Operators are standing by. A donation of only $3 will feed a starving prohibitionist for a day. Wait, I think I’m getting these pleas for donations confused a bit.
The email goes on to promise, “We are no doubt going to send a number of emails about Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination.” At least that is honest of their Executive Director Peter Ambler to acknowledge that this just the first in a series of emails. Having been on their mailing list for a few years, I can assure you that each and every one of them will have some “ask” for a donation or to sign up on their mailing list.
