Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On January 8th, 2013, the Obama Administration met with 23 large foundations to organize a push for national gun control. They included such organizations as the Open Society Institute, the McCormick Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the California Endowment.
As one participant said: “There’s only one reason why you get a bunch of deep-pocketed funders on the phone.”
In 2012, Mayor Michael Bloomberg donated $250 million to Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health to hire new professors, many whose primary objective is to do expanding research on gun violence.
President Obama has also been directing federal government funds towards gun control projects. Still other funds are being set up, such as the Fund for a Safer Future, which has $16 million to fund gun control research and is one of the many gun control projects being partially funded George Soros’ Open Society Foundation. Recently, the MacArthur foundation has also been given a large million dollar grant. The public health research being funded is very flawed (e.g., see the discussion here on Kellermann).
Who is fighting against this flood of bogus research?
The Crime Prevention Research Center.
The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) is a research and education organization dedicated to conducting academic quality research on the relationship between laws regulating the ownership or use of guns, crime, and public safety; educating the public on the results of such research; and supporting other organizations, projects, and initiatives that are organized and operated for similar purposes.
But they do not have deep pocket downers funding this important research, like the gun banners and their wealthy freedom hating supporters. All the CPRC has is individuals like you and me, who are willing to put our hard earned dollars behind this battle for the truth and freedom.
The Crime Prevention Research Center can do the job if you pitch in to help, with as much or as little as you can afford. Donate here: http://tiny.cc/7qdvfx
Here is an update on the current fundraising battle.
The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) is currently the most successful campaign in the education section on Indiegogo and has over double the number of funders compared to the rest of the trending education campaigns. The campaign is the 3rd trending campaign in the education section and has been consistently moving up over the last three weeks.
Additionally the campaign has recently received at least $15,000 in personal checks that did not go through Indiegogo , to add to the crowd funding contributions of $20,001, for a total of $35,001 to date.
However, we still have a significant amount of money to make before we reach our goal and, since I know that this campaign appeals to the patriots at AmmoLand. Thank you for sharing this information with your readers.
As an inspirational example the Gosnell campaign, has shown that the conservative spirit is strong among the masses and, with gun control advocates like Bloomberg pouring money into skewed research, this campaign is more important than ever.
