All hail Gottlieb the Great and Powerful, Omniscient Wizard of Gun Rights.

Gag alert.
A pertinent definition to go along with this Workman piece:
Hagiography, noun: 1. the writing of the lives of saints; 2. adulatory writing about another person; 3. biography that idealizes its subject.

Those currently gagging and heaving over this latest piece, might want to follow an epic thread here :

So Workman equates UBC's with background checks as his boss works to make sure the UBC in WA I-594 survives? REALLY?

The only hope the Gun rights advocates have in Nevada and Arizona is that Gottlieb and Workman don't try to bring into their states an I591 type vote to confuse and divide them.

The best thing possible is that they stay in Washington state where they have & are doing a very good job of screwing everyone there who supports the 2nd amendment!

But it may depend on how much Bloomberg is willing to pay them to go into other states and bring their chaos!

Governor: Legalizing pot was bad idea

Colorado’s decision to legalize marijuana was a bad idea, the state’s governor said Friday.

Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who opposed the 2012 decision by voters to make pot legal, said the state still doesn’t fully know what the unintended consequences of the move will be.

Looks like I'll have to shop for a new online firearms and accessories retailer. CRAP!
The Examiner:

"The Second Amendment Foundation revealed today that it has received the single largest contribution ever from a corporate sponsor, a $100,000 check from CheaperThanDirt, one of the nation’s largest on-line retail sporting goods dealers."

Predict it? Hell, Gottlied caused it.

Back in February 2013, I wrote: "Gottlieb says he supports universal preemptively-prove-your-innocence (background checks) if he can get other concessions. Nice concessions, but nowhere near nice enough to compromise individual rights in WA state or to set the example for the grabbers that, "Look! Even Gottlieb and SAF -- of Heller fame -- think universal background checks are a good idea. So we can go ahead and do it nationally! (emphasis added-cb)""

Shure 'nuff, we saw it attempted nationally... in the Manchin-Toomey-Gottlieb Amendment.

And what was Bowtie Boy's answer to state UBC preemptively-prove-your-innocence i-594? Why, I-591 specifically the door for national checks.

Of course, the antis t/h/i/n/k/ knowthey can do it now. Gottlieb and other money-grabbing appeasers told 'em so.

Gottleib, Show us your money trail. Is it to Bloomberg? Soros? Microsoft founders (Gates & minions)? It must be coming from somewhere to provide the best insider job against Second Amendment rights I have ever seen.

Show us the money, or you will find your hopes and dreams on the ash heap of history.

Here's the comment I posted to Workman's piece (figured I ought to re-post it here since who knows how long he is likely to let it stand):

Dave? Could you POSSIBLY be a bigger shill for Gottlieb? Did it ever occur to you that had Gottlieb not put forth and promoted I-591 and, instead, spent all that time, MONEY and effort opposing I-594 that - just possibly - 594 MIGHT have been defeated?

Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't background checks already required unless the transfer is between two, non-dealer, private parties? Why aren't you guys fighting for 2nd Amendment rights instead of just trying to minimize the current encroachment, whatever it may be? Compromise with gun grabbers is like a frog in a stewpot agreeing to the cook only turning up the gas on the burner a little bit. Sooner or later he is well and truly going to be frog soup!

$6,000,000 to SAF last year and how much went to defeat 594??? Any??

How much did Gottlieb take in from his many other various organizations/"nonprofit"/businesses/FRONTS? Where did it all go???
