Google Aids America’s Gun Grabbing Enemies With $2 Million

Written by:

Published on: July 6, 2017

On Friday, internet giant Google announced plans to aid and abet the enemies of America who are pushing for gun confiscation, and at the forefront of a $2 million grant are the usual suspects: The Brady Campaign and Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety.

According to the press release, “Ten Communities Most Impacted by Violence Receive Grant from Google.Org through the PICO LIVE FREE Campaign.”

“Too often gun violence prevention efforts are bogged down by what happens in the halls of Congress rather than focusing on what’s happening on community streets,” said Pastor Michael McBride, director of the LIVE FREE campaign. “Congressional action is important, but there are proven, evidence-based strategies to dramatically reduce gun violence without waiting for Congress to act. We’re grateful that Google.org is taking the steps to invest in them. Our hope is that this grant enables people already doing the work in their communities to save more lives than they could before.”

And what are those evidence-based strategies?  We aren’t told in the press release, but we do know that many of these groups receiving the grants push for what we all know they want and that is legislation geared toward gun confiscation, after all that is where gun control eventually leads because there will never be enough gun control laws until every single gun is out of the hands of citizens.  We also know taht McBride, like many of those receiving the grant money advocate for Congress to write laws that restrict law-abiding citizens’ rights to both obtain, keep and bear arms.

However, The Trace reports that at least one model program called Ceasefire is being used.

Ceasefire is a model of violence prevention that started in Boston in the mid 1990s. In its first iteration, police targeted at-risk offenders, gun traffickers, and crime hotspots in the hopes of reducing the youth homicide rate. The program was credited with a 63 percent reduction in monthly youth homicides. In the ensuing decades, Ceasefire-style programs popped up across the county. Some modern iterations rely on community leadersto work with former gang members, victims, and perpetrators of gun violence, and social service providers to try and prevent gun-related crime.

According to McBride, “$50,000 to $150,000 would be distributed to nonprofits, religious institutions, and other community organizations in each city to support Ceasefire programs.”

Among those who will receive a total of $2 million to attack the rights of America’s citizens that are to be protected under the Second Amendment, are:

  • Everytown for Gun Safety
  • Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Americans for Responsible Solutions
  • Guns Down America
  • Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Alliance for Gun Responsibility

Communities that will be supported with the grant include:

  • Chicago, Ill.
  • Milwaukee, Wis.
  • Miami Gardens, Fla.
  • Orlando, Fla.
  • Indianapolis, Ind.
  • Gary, Ind.
  • Oakland, Calif.
  • New York City, N.Y.
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Dallas, Texas

“Google.org is proud to support the PICO Network – LIVE FREE Campaign as part of our ongoing commitment to organizations and innovators working on racial justice,” said Justin Steele, principal at Google.org. “Their unique, evidence-based approach brings together important allies – clergy, organizers, law enforcement, and organizational leaders – who are able to interrupt cycles of violence by reaching individuals and groups at a local and personal level. We look forward to seeing their work bring about positive change in urban communities.”

The announcement of the grant was made as a part of the launch of the Peacemaker Partnership, a coalition led by LIVE FREE and the Community Justice Reform Coalition.

“If we’re serious about reducing gun violence, then we must address the root causes of violence and end the structural discrimination and the mass criminalization of people of color,” said Amber Goodwin, founder and executive director of the Community Justice Reform Coalition. “Violence is a symptom of a larger problem, which is why this partnership and the push to lift up communities of color, especially women, is so important. We are mobilizing all communities to be ‘peacemakers’ to reduce the number of gun-related shootings and homicides regardless of who pulls the trigger, decrease the number of individuals incarcerated and increase opportunity for those caught in these deadly cycles.”

The Peacemaker Partnership is made up of national, leading gun violence prevention and anti-racism organizations including:

  • PICO LIVE FREE Campaign
  • Community Justice Reform Coalition
  • Kellogg Foundation
  • Advance Peace
  • Alliance for Gun Responsibility
  • Americans for Responsible Solutions
  • Amnesty International
  • Athletes for Impact
  • The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Campaign for Black Male Achievement
  • Chorus
  • Cities United
  • Civic Engagement Fund
  • The Daniel Initiative
  • End Rape on Campus
  • Everytown for Gun Safety
  • Guns Down
  • Jobs R 4 U
  • The Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Live Free Chicago
  • Meridian Solutions
  • Million Hoodies for Justice
  • Moms Rising
  • National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
  • National Domestic Violence Hotline
  • National Institute for Criminal Justice Reform
  • Operation LIPSTICK
  • Organizing for Action
  • PICO California
  • Revolve Impact
  • States United to Prevent Gun Violence
  • Voto Latino

Keep in mind that Everytown has lied to the American people and claimed that 90% of Americans supported background checks.  No, the American people support justice given to violent criminals so background checks are not required.  The Brady campaign has also gotten in bed with the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) to attack the Second Amendment.

Furthermore, some of this money will then be given out to non-profits and religious groups in the community.  Who is going to track that to make sure it does what they claim it will be used for and not to lobby representatives to impose more gun confiscation laws?

It’s Google’s money and they can do what they want with it, but perhaps we should start thinking of whether or not they should be supported when they give money to those who attack our rights.
