    I hope most of you have heard of the Joyce Foundation. I won't go into that here. I occasionally peruse their grant list. Here's the link:http://www.joycefdn.org/programs/gu.../programs/gunviolence/content/gun-grants.html

    I saw this for 2005:
    National Opinion Research Center
    Chicago, IL $39,499
    To add a selection of gun-related questions to its 2006 General Social Survey. (2 yrs.)

    The Foundation must have liked their work because the NORC is a repeat offender, err grantee.

    Academics are unbiased and can't be bought, right?
    Ohio State University Foundation
    John Glenn Institute for Public Service & Public Policy
    Columbus, OH $125,000
    To host a symposium at Stanford Law School on the connections between the Second Amendment and the Fourteenth Amendment, to publish papers in a major law review, and disseminate findings via the Web. (2 yrs.)

    This one is cute as well:
    International Association of Chiefs of Police
    Alexandria, VA $174,788
    To expand a Midwest-based advisory group
    of law enforcement leaders interested in
    promoting gun violence prevention policies and practices, and to plan a possible regional summit of Midwest law enforcement, elected officials, and other stakeholders on gun violence prevention. (9 mos.)

    Last, but not least:
    Mark Karlin & Associates
    Chicago, IL $650,000
    To support the continued efforts of its Freedom States Alliance, a project to promote financial self-sufficiency and effective media, public, and policy-maker education efforts among gun violence prevention groups, especially those in Illinois and Wisconsin.
    (18 mos.)

    If you visit the FSA Web page you'll see there are further orgs that feed off the good graces of the FSA.

    Too bad our side doesn't have a deep-well to fund "research."

    A while back, I spent some quality time with a calculator and that list, posted here:


    Since 1996, they've spend $30,440,000 (Yup, more than THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS) funding little groups here and there in an ongoing, orchestrated social engineering endeavor whose object is to deprive us of our rights.

    A guy commenting at "The Smallest Minority" put it well:

    Sounds like the gun-banning movement would be history if it weren't for these guys. The Brady Campaign is apparently less than 100k members, which shouldn't be enough to have any national-level influence. $30mil explains what's going on.

    The NRA is more of a grass-roots thing supported by small checks from its 4mil members.

    America's foundations are, by and large, leftist enclaves, and they have lots of dollars to dispense. We'd better find some Soros types with deep pockets.

    Actually, I think we, the people have deep enough pockets, and quite a few more of them.

    You can add Hewelett Packard, Tides and Ford Foundation to that list of rich lefty givers and gun control supporters among other things.

    THis is something that isn't publicized enough.

    The anti's always like to accuse the NRA of being funded by big-money interests like gun manufacturers and dealer organizations. This allows them to spread the myth that the NRA's agenda is not popular, and only a small number of self-interested people are supporting it, much to the dismay of everyone else.

    The fact that the NRA is funded by nearly four million individual members is one they just don't want to accept. In reality, it is their anti-gun movement that is funded by a few mega-bucks oligarchs trying to impose their will on the rest of society.
