Yesterday we were informed that a former Trace Media (Everytown's media arm, funded by Everytown and has the same President, John Feinblatt, as Everytown) magically "unearthed" some history of the FOID card and magically seemed to come across the same long forgotten articles in newspaper archives. Also magically, in 2021 we did an in-depth original research piece on the origins of the FOID, which 3 weeks ago, a video that is making the rounds was published by Alpha Koncepts (a Chicago area firearms instructor) that cited our work. Here's a link to yesterday's story:
Well, Alpha Koncepts made it known where he found the long-lost material for his video (to which he states to the Mom-At-Arms team "I tried to find that info for years, but never knew where to look. You guys saved me countless hours". Trace Media tweeted out a link (propping up their former employee?) and here's what happened w/a Trace journalist:
HOLY RACISM BATMAN!!!! Calling him "white ass" LOL. Someone is triggered. Maybe he should have a talk with Everytown's (MDA) Shannon Watts about racism, as apparently it's "irresponsible" to highlight a changing demographic in gun ownership......
Or how about the guy that bankrolls the Trace?
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly argued Friday that guns need to be kept out of the hands of minorities in order to keep them alive.
While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Mr. Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported.
“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” said Mr. Bloomberg, who funds the gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”
Mr. Bloomberg brought up the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practices, recalling a time during his last year in office when a Baptist minster in Harlem invited him to speak at their church, The Times reported.
While I’m sitting there waiting for him to introduce me, he said to his congregation, ‘You know, if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn’t have to do it,’” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And so I knew I was going to be OK with that audience.”
Jill, head of MAA, did address him ( Trace reporter) directly too:
BTW, here's the direct link to our groundbreaking 2 year old research on the FOID card and its origins:
