Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the gun control movement’s most active and affluent advocate, will host a fundraiser at his Manhattan home later this month for Sen. Joe Manchin, according to an invitation for the event obtained by BuzzFeed.So how much of that money raised will be cancelled out because it's being provided by New York?
Manchin, a Democrat from Republican-leaning West Virginia, led the Senate’s push for a bill to expand background checks on private gun sales earlier this year in the wake of the mass shooting last December in Newtown, Conn. Manchin’s bill, co-sponsored by Republican Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, failed despite backing from the White House and Bloomberg’s own group, Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns.

Manchin Officially Bought & Paid For
Yep, the failed Manchin/Toomey bill would be such a boon to firearm owners that anti-gun (pro-control) NYC Bloomberg is backing him w/ fundraisers.
