Bill Gates Backs Washington Initiative to Stop Private Gun Sales
Breitbart ^ | 11/15/2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 11/16/2013 7:10:41 AM PST by rktman

Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda have "contributed $25,000 apiece" to Washington's Initiative 594, which would effectively ban private gun sales in the state.

The Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR) is pushing the initiative, claiming it "makes sure anyone buying a gun in Washington State passes the same background check, no matter where where they buy the gun and no matter whom they buy it from."

Not surprised. No worries when you can live in a 15,000 sq/ft mansion which you attained by hard work and imagination. You even imagine that you ARE smarter about EVERYTHING because, well, why else would people pony up money to buy your product? Just further affirmation of your brilliance. Didiot.

Which of the other Ten Amendments to the Constitution do I have to take out a license or permit for?

From the man who gave us the most inept OS in the world, and introduced all to the blue screen of death.

Shove it, Gates.

Jobs owned you years ago, and nobody gives a smelly Obama about you any more.

Bill hates guns because they’re reliable.

I believe Bill shouldn’t be able to have guns....he’s not working with a stable operating system.

I suppose it is easy to be anti-gun when you live in a mansion with armed guards.

He seems really motivated. Heck, he makes more than 25K each morning while he’s sitting in the smallest room of the house reading the paper.

That will be about as effective as banning private drug sales.

Oh, wait a minute...

Oh look, another million copies of Windows just got pirated so we can afford to buy more guys and ammo.

Apparently Gates doesn’t need the cash since he obviously has plenty of hired goons to guard his palace.

I think he has enough money that he can afford to have somebody else takes a dump for him. Why mess with that if you can pay someone to do it for you? LOL!

Lets start by disarming yours and your family’s bodyguards first. In fact, no bodyguards at all - since most people can’t afford them and have to rely on a firearm and their own skills to defend themselves. So how about it Billy boy? What is good for thee... So lead by example, or STFU. Long live Linux and LibreOffice!

If your OS freezes, try a reboot.

That fixes everything.

We need to reboot Gates.

A test of ownership of property is, can you sell it. If you can’t sell it an agreed upon price you don’t own it. If you don’t own it you can’t complain if someone takes it.

Not sure Washington voters will put up w gun constraints.

You might find the state divided, East v West.

What you said! Oh how I cringe at this little weasel and his annoying desire to involve himself in things he knows so little about. How’s his common core coming along? And his innate interest in eugenics?

He is a coward.

Yes, linux is free, offers a ton of free software, runs better, and doesn’t put our hard earned $ in the pockets of guys who think they control us.

Gates, the next Soros. Gates bought/stole his way to the top. He was never creative or smart like Jobs.

If the Founding Fathers needed to go through a background check, they would have been executed by the British with that information.
