Michael Bloomberg is planning on running for President.

If reading that headline made you want to hold onto your guns and ammo a little bit tighter than usual, that’s OK. You’re not the only one who’s a bit freaked out thinking what a Bloomberg Presidency might do to our second amendment.

Bloomberg announced over the weekend he’s prepared to spend about $1 billion dollars of his own money to finance a third party run at the Oval Office.

This doesn’t seem like it would bode well for the average gun owning American, does it?

Bloomberg has until March to officially decide if he’s going to throw his hat in the ring and duke it out with the other candidates.

According to Yahoo:

“Part of Bloomberg’s motivation to enter the race stems from a frustration with Clinton’s campaign, the source said. Clinton has been dogged by questions about her honesty amid an ongoing investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of state.

Sanders, Clinton’s chief rival, has recently surged in polling in key early voting states Iowa and New Hampshire. That development has made Bloomberg increasingly worried about a general election between Sanders, a self-described socialist, and Trump or Cruz, both of whom have staked out far-right positions on issues like immigration.”

It might seem like another, anti-gun candidate is anything but good for our country. We already have to deal with the threat of Sanders or Hillary getting into office and stripping us of our gun rights…so another anti-gunner is a harrowing prospect, right?

Especially considering this one is the driving force behind some of the most prolific and largest anti-gun organizations like “Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Everytown For Gun Safety, Moms Demand Action, and The Trace( a propaganda arm for anti-gun ‘news’).”

But here’s why this might actually be a good thing.

Considering the support for Sanders and Clinton is already falling, if Bloomberg were to make an entrance and establish himself as a viable third party candidate he could easily split the vote and cost the Democrats the election.

Think about it, there are tons of liberals who don’t like what Clinton or Sanders promise to bring to the table. To them, Bloomberg might actually be the candidate they want (and feel like they deserve).

And considering Bloomberg doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of winning it could work out quite well for the GOP and their chances of putting a candidate in office.

What do you think, are you happy to see Bloomberg out there shaking things up if it would cost Hillary or Bernie the election?
