Liberal Billionaires Tap Anti-Gun Zealot to Head $50 Million Gun Violence Initiative

The Laura and John Arnold Foundation, founded by liberal billionaire and former Enron executive John Arnold and his wife Laura, has appointed an “anti-gun zealot,” Jeremy Travis, to head up a $50 million initiative on gun violence research.

Laura and John Arnold have been slowly building an empire of non-profits and super PACs that are staffed by former Clinton and Obama administration officials who work to support the far left’s political agenda behind the scenes.

Earlier this year, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation announced it would donate $50 million “to boost funding for gun violence research.”

The person heading up that research is Travis, a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and one of the architects of New York City’s expansive 1990s gun ban.

According to 2ndVote:

“However, a deeper look at Travis’ anti-gun zealotry leaves no doubt that this research will be used to violate the Second Amendment. His opposition to gun rights was front-and-center for New York City gun owners in the 1990s. He was one of the architects of the city’s extensive 1990s gun ban, which was used as justification by police to break into citizens’ home. Travis was quoted as saying “spot checks are planned” at gun owners’ homes to ensure they are following the law. In 1997, he endorsed the federal Brady Act and waiting periods in a speech.”

Given Travis extensive anti-gun background, it’s almost impossible to expect that the research he’s tasked to conduct on gun violence will be impartial and fair.
