Everytown Spending $6M on These Trump Attack Ads in Florida

The Everytown for Gun Safety Victory Fund is spending $6 million on a Florida ad buy that features three new videos attacking president Donald Trump. 

The gun-control organization, funded largely by failed 2020 presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, will air the ads on the Tampa and Orlando television markets as well as on digital platforms across the state.  

“President Trump’s utter failure to address gun violence and COVID-19, which are two of the most urgent public health emergencies facing our nation, has been felt especially hard in Florida,” said John Feinblatt, head of Everytown Victory Fund, in a statement obtained by GunsAmerica.   

“In the run-up to Election Day, Everytown is going all out to remind voters that President Trump has consistently put the interests of the gun lobby ahead of the safety of the American people,” he continued.  

Everytown is joined in this anti-Trump endeavor by the progressive political action committee Priorities USA.  

“We are proud to partner with Everytown to make the case for Joe Biden to Floridians by connecting his record of strong leadership with the issues that voters care most about,” said Chairman of Priorities USA Guy Cecil.

“While Donald Trump has been endangering the well-being of the American people since day one of his presidency, organizations like Everytown have spent years fighting for our safety,” Cecil added.  “Florida voters want a president who will stand with them, not with lobbyists and corporations.”

In total, Everytown plans on dropping $60 million on the 2020 elections, twice the amount it spent during 2016.  Not all the money will be used in an effort to unseat president Trump.  The group is also carefully targeting vulnerable lawmakers in the U.S. House and Senate, as GunsAmerica previously reported

It’s hard to put too much stock in poll numbers, especially after Trump’s historic trouncing of Hillary Clinton four years ago, but for those that still do Biden leads in the national polls by 7.4%, according to the latest numbers.  

Did you watch the ads?  What did you think of them?  Effective?

    Biden is done he doesn’t even know where the hell he is most times. Get your crying rags ready President Trump is going to trounce Biden.

  • Mel Brooks September 14, 2020, 5:26 pm

    Kenosha Kyle is a fricking bad ass American hero. BLM is a racist organization. The salty tears of commie, soy drinking faggots sustains me. Trump will win in a landslide. Mayor Doomberg is a statist. Stalin and Hitler loved sensible gun control. Biden is a dementia addled pedophile.

    Hey trolling is fun. Sorry Moderators, I had to say it.

  • Roger Brown September 14, 2020, 2:25 pm

    Bloomberg is such a loser. Imagine the good he could do with his money, for people that really need it, instead of spewing out his hateful messages.

  • richard J smith September 14, 2020, 1:13 pm

    He supports our Constitution, that’s no secret. And so do I. That’s why I’m a Trump supporter. And the money given to Trump’s campaign was donated by like minded supporters of the NRA. So, what’s the big deal. This is just more twisted shit from the left.

  • Randy Aaron September 14, 2020, 12:04 pm

    This site seems to have been infiltrated by leftist trolls, possibly even financed by Michael Bloomberg’s money.

  • Rex September 14, 2020, 10:56 am

    Who let the trolls in? It’s a shame so many democRat trolls have invaded Guns America Digest; all shills for fascist Everytown. 2nd Amendment destroyers all.

  • DCA September 14, 2020, 9:29 am

    Agree. Excellent post. Thank you.

  • DCA September 14, 2020, 9:26 am

    We need to dump Trump. He is an insane anus and is destroying the American I love and grew up in. His goal is dictatorship/monarchy. Every time he opens his small mouth I get angry and worry about my children and grandchildren. It has NOTHING to do with guns. I love guns and have many.

    • Rex September 14, 2020, 10:51 am

      If “you love guns and have many” the voting choice is clear. The democRat goal is complete gun confiscation. The America you grew up and love is already gone but with the democRats governing, America of the future will be a one party state akin to the old Soviet Union.
      For the record, I call horse dung on your post and doubt you own many guns.

    • Big Al 45 September 14, 2020, 11:18 am

      I love when clowns like you make such stupid claims, by ALL means, show us the ‘evidence’ of this alleged “goal” of monarchy.
      IF anyone EVER aspired to such goals, it was Obama, who flat out stated he would change America.
      As to the ‘destruction’ of America, if you don’t see the Democrats as FAR worse, then you really are a fool.
      I can’t imagine what goes on in your head, to make such foolish statements.

    • Randy Aaron September 14, 2020, 11:54 am

      You are a lying Dem trollbot, and a gun-hating ideologue to boot!

    • Jon simon September 14, 2020, 12:00 pm

      well looks like your going to be angry another 4 years .tell me how that works out for you lol

    • willy September 14, 2020, 2:27 pm

      You are clearly just a hater and a loser. You’re probably not even who you portray yourself to be. You are just a hater and a loser.

  • Stan d. Upnow September 11, 2020, 1:07 pm

    At this point, unless you’re an ignorant, brain-dead Lefty zombie, all the Progressive-Socialist propaganda in the world cannot convince you to vote for Any of the P-S candidates, much less the hollow puppet monkey called Joe Biden.

  • Dr. Moses September 11, 2020, 10:23 am

    Uncle Joe and his HOE are filthy liars,

  • Jeffrey Hunt September 10, 2020, 9:30 pm

    Wow. Don’t pretend Trump won’t take our firearms, because if that’s what makes him feel important at that certain moment he will. Just as he told Bob Woodward how real and dangerous Covid 19 actually was, and then lied to all of us about it. I am less worried about Biden taking my firearms, because he can’t, than what the next crazy thing Trump will do. And if Republicans are upset over Biden, they should not have let Trump go for a second term. Kasich would be fine for me.

    • Greg September 11, 2020, 8:59 am

      If you think Biden is running himself, you’re delusional. He’s a puppet. Trump is the strongest supporter of gun right of any president in modern history.

      • Stan d. Upnow September 11, 2020, 1:40 pm

        Hunt will be standing with Antifa when they try to start a civil war after Trump is re-elected. Too bad he might have a firearm; won’t save him.

    • SD September 11, 2020, 9:00 am

      Jeffrey, Kasich is a dusche bag. You must be one of his offspring

    • Stan d. Upnow September 11, 2020, 1:36 pm

      You’re drowning in your Leftist delusions, Jeffrey. And none of us will throw you a lifeline.

      Just stay home and play video games on Nov. 3.

    • Solo September 14, 2020, 6:33 am

      I agree with you Jeffrey Hunt.
      Im not worried about Joe taking away my guns, your right because he cant!
      Those are scare tactics that Trump uses for you to keep his vote. Trump has made America worse than it has been in years. The Dude lies every day of his life.
      Im in shock at how people will follow this man blind. He is the greatest threat to American Democracy. We may be the Few in the gun culture, but you are not the only one.

    • Wally September 14, 2020, 7:23 am

      I’m with you Jeffrey, tRump is a bold face lier who’s own family has thrown him under the the bus for what he is. A Malignant Narcissistic Psychopath who will tell you anything you want to hear if it benefits him. How many credible individuals need to come forward and describe his antics before tRump supporters wake up. He will tell you how important your second amendment rights are in one breath and stomp all over your first amendment rights in the next. If anyone is delusional it is those supporting this LIER-IN-CHIEF. This Republican is voting BIDEN/HARRIS…………..

    • joe September 14, 2020, 9:30 am

      It can’t be any more obvious that there are some trolls who are planting disinformation about the most pro-gun President in Trump. Sorry- no matter how many times they post, they are not fooling anyone.

    • David Rockwell September 14, 2020, 6:04 pm

      This bit about Trump lying about Covid is wearing thin. Early on, when he made the comments to Woodward, reports out of Europe were the virus was killing 6-7% of those infected. This was mostly due to testing limited to the very sick. As testing became more frequent and data grew, it became apparent it was not anywhere near that, with death rates down to about half of one percent. Hence his later comments on it not being as bad as originally thought.
      He was following the science, and the science of Covid is uncertain and evolving.

    • Kickit September 21, 2020, 8:34 pm

      Don’t worry or pretend Biden won’t come after your guns? Been living under a city rock? He’s already assigned comrade Beto to be his gun czar. The only people with GOP attached to their name—against Trump at this time is the same people who were never trumpers from the beginning RINOs—Democrats with Republican in name only to fool the voting populace. Globalists, Establishment, yes Swamp career DC Creatures. It is Trump the outsider against all these political hacks & cronies who have sold America out and gotten rich at the expense of the middle class. Get your head out of the sand now! Wake up and research how many nights of riots, arson, looting, destroying businesses has went on over the last ~ 110+ nights in many major cities but has been blacked out by most Mainstream Media outlets. If you can’t see with your own two eyes that your beloved Democrat Party has been hijacked by Progressives (as in radical Marxists) who intend to destroy America literally and rip the Constitution into, then you may have to learn the hard way. Like the Democratic couple in St. Louis who brandished their firearms because rioters were threatening their property and them bodily harm—yet the DA charged the couple with a crime. They found out too late how their current Dem Party really believes and rolls. This election is a choice between freedom or tyranny. Want your guns confiscated, vote Dem. Want to lose capitalism, free markets, freedom of speech, 2nd, 4th, 5th, etc.? Vote Dem. Dems are raging mad this week because President Trump within his constitutional rights, plans to put forth a SCOTUS nominee. So they are willing to physically attack and threaten any lawmaker or citizen who has a different point of view. Raging, Radical, Unhinged, Deranged are all new terms describing the New Democrat Party. Hope you seriously think through your candidate to vote. Election Day November third 2020 matters.

    As a second generation Floridian whose family moved to Florida in the 30’s and were all avid sportsman Florida has a thriving and active community of gun owners and sportsman, many who escaped communism in Cuba and Venezuela. We will fight any and every attempt to deny us our rights as free men and as defined in the Constitution.
    Gun makers and sellers have also chosen Florida as their home and Bloombergs communism if enacted would deprive many of their livelihood, also proteced under the laws of the State and Federal government.

    However the same economic advantages that lured many to freedom loving Americans to Florida also attracts the Marxist gun grabbers from NY, the same NY transplants who escape the cold, crime, and high taxes of Cuomo and Deblasio. These are super wealthy individuals who live behind guarded gates with armed security and who buy their political power in Cities and communities. I once lived behind the lines in South Florida and virtually every mayor and Sheriff and Police Chief would cheer if we the law abiding gun owners were stripped of our gun rights. These communists take Bloombergs money to use in lawsuits against the State and the firearms pre-emption laws banning localities in Florida from enacting their own gun laws.

    Im afraid Florida is no different than Washington and other states in that gun owners are one election away from losing our freedoms and gun rights. And so every dollar we cannot spend on non existent ammunition and arms we need to fund GOA, SAF, and the ILA.

    I would also buy appropriate supplies to withstand a siege and likely civil war. Besides the basics, items such as sand bags, concertina and razor wire, appropriate steel fence posts and materials to emplace and prepare obstacles and barricades. These materials are plentiful now and cheap. They can keep arsonists out of throwing range and provide one time to disable the threat.

    Do I know something beyond whats published in the prepper and usual preparedness forums. No. But these are not normal times, perhaps never seen on this scale in a long time

    • Taxx73 September 10, 2020, 3:44 pm

      I would be greatly honored to stand with any legal citizen of these United States . Whether you were born here or legally immigrated here. It makes no difference to me. The Constitution of the United States must be defended from all enemies foreign and domestic.

      I’m from S. FL, so I know what you’re saying. Former(TG!) Sheriff of Broward County, Scott Israel, is a prime example of what you’re talking about.

  • Ricky B. September 9, 2020, 5:05 pm

    Osama Bin Laden’s niece has endorsed Trump’s 2020 reelection… I guess that should make all of those America-hating Trump supporters happy!

    • Taxx73 September 10, 2020, 3:25 pm

      So by your line of thinking Hillary Clinton is a card carrying member of the K.K.K. because her mentor was a high ranking member of that organization. Any idiot can endorse a candidate, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the candidate agrees with the entity that puts out the endorsement. This is probably an attempt to portray President Trump as evil or maybe this woman actually wants the same freedoms for her people as we have here in the United States. Also I have heard rumor reports that Putin is cheering for Biden. Does that make Biden a Russian asset? Try some independent research for a change before regurgitating mainstream propaganda. I guess you also still believe that the Steele dossier is true even though it has been thoroughly debunked.
      TRUMP 2020!

        Dont Forget that the KKK did endorse Trump……
        Lol……

    • REM1875 September 11, 2020, 4:59 am

      This niece ???

      “But Noor bin Ladin claims that the US would be better protected from a second 9/11 under Trump. ”

      Right ….. Trump supporters should be flocking to biden because of this ……..

    • Greg September 11, 2020, 8:58 am

      Yes she did, as a victim of Islamic oppression.. and MLKs niece also endorsed Trump!

    • Keith September 11, 2020, 10:45 am

      Are you actually naive enough to think that Osama’s niece agreed with her uncles ways? His family disavowed him many years before his death. My God Ricky get a clue!
      The fact that this woman came out and said this lends a lot of credibility to Trump’s stance. She knows the oppression of Radical Islamic regimes from her own personal experience and knows that Trump is helping those oppressed by radical Islam. She risked her health and welfare, possibly her life, by going public with this. What does that tell you?

    • Stan d. Upnow September 11, 2020, 1:43 pm

      ATTENTION: Progressive-Socialist troll alert!

    • Big Al 45 September 14, 2020, 11:31 am

      So? If you had any brains, you would know that one of the best ways to get at anyone in politics is to sow disinformation.
      And unfortunately, many of my fellow Americans fall for this total line of B.S.
      Not to mention your apparent attempt to push an agenda of ‘guilt’ by ‘association. She didn’t pick her family, and isn’t responsible for her uncles actions, ESPECIALLY in an Islamic society where women are often denigrated and relegated to second class status.
