Obama Funds Gun Control

Looks like Obama’s roosters are coming home to roost a day before the Pennsylvania primaries:

Obama’s eight years on the board of the Joyce Foundation, which paid him more than $70,000 in directors fees, do not in any way conflict with his campaign-trail support for the rights of gun owners, Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for Obama’s presidential campaign, asserted in a statement issued to Politico this week.

LaBolt stressed that the foundation, which has assets of about $935 million, doesn’t take “detailed policy positions,” but rather uses its grants to “fuel a dialogue about how to address public policy issues like reducing gun violence.”

Oh, you mean this type of dialog?  Not a good thing to be associated with in a pro-gun blue state.

    Yep. He was on the board when the VPC put out their “sniper rifle” paper. Joyce funding continued to increase.

    But they funded this “non partisan summit” to increase dialogue… Oh, that’s right, it was a dialogue between dueling gun-grabbers!
