Remember the gun control group paid their Vermont lobbyist $39,000 for April 1 through June 31, 2014
and another $39,000 for July 1 through December 31, 2014.  For a total of $78,000.00 in 2014.
Now they have reported the even larger amount for the period of January 1 to March 31, 2015 and there
will be another expense reporting for April 1 until June 30.  So, for the 12 month period from April 1, 2014
to March 31, 2015 the gun control group spent approximately    $130,000.00. 
Add the $77,567.90 of Everytown (see below) and you get over $207.000.00 having been spent to get S.141.
Everytown spent over $20,000 in advertising a month Jan. 1 to March 31, 2015.  $20K a month.
The BFP did not include the Everytown for Gun Safety Money.  Why not?        
This does not include their nearly $30,000 in campaign contribution funds recently reported in Seven Days.
The Vermont Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, NRA and National Shooting Sports spent a total of less
than $37K for January 1, 2015 through April 30, 2015. 
The mandatory background check was pulled when S.31 was dumped.  We could have walked away
but the gun rights groups stayed to make sure that all of the technical and structural legal problems in
what became S.141 did not become law. 
Does anyone really think most of the gun control group money came from Vermont?
This data comes to $77,567.90 from a group with a mailing address of P.O. Box 4184, New York, New York, 10163.
Gunsensevt won't disclose the source of their funding.   Wouldn't a responsible press be just a little curious?
