Posted on 01/09/2013 10:31:18 AM PST by ColdOne
The White House on Tuesday afternoon reached out to major philanthropic foundations not typically associated with gun control to gauge how much they are willing to get involved in President Obamas future gun violence prevention efforts, according to a person on the call.
The call, which featured Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Jonathan Greenblatt, the director of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, and members of Vice President Bidens staff, was largely a listening session, according to the person on the call, who represents a foundation invited to participate.
The person said the call included the Open Society Institute, the McCormick Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the California Endowment. Those groups, which traditionally work in public health fields, have not previously been identified with major gun control efforts.

You assume we'll learn who they are.
The article mentions only two - out of how many?
If we could learn that we could initiate a preemptive strike and let them know that we (the shooting public) would not take kindly to their getting involved, and we would attack their bottom line.
I am guessing groups like UNICEF, and UNITED WAY, that get a lot of liberal backing will jump on the Obama bandwagon, with little decline.
What? Somebody actually used “wood” and “johnson” in the name of their foundation? I expect they’ll be getting the Pew Trust and a bunch of other useless left wing extremist organizations involved too. Big bucks for big ads.
Share the lead.
Yep, this is about Obama getting cash to run propaganda.
Any organization that supports gun grabbing, in any form, will face a swift and certain backlash. Let them abide with Obama at their own direct financial peril.
How about recruiting that young mother from Oklahoma two Christmases ago that defended herself and infant child with a 12 guage. If I recall correctly, three men were breaking into her home....
Tyranny is looking for ‘funders’ to subvert the Constitution.
We need to get out the message that we all need to hang together, or we will all hang separately. From the HHS mandate to gun control, to the next power grab we need to fight together. Yes, these foundations will find their freedoms assaulted too when they cross obamaâs plans, so they aught to think about standing for freedom before it is too late.
“Nice foundation you have, there. Shame if something happened to it....”
Agreed that we need to hang together, and I don’t mean on the end of a rope.
Where's our invite and White House meeting?
What if .. "57 school kids killed and maybe 100 injured! Some maniac drove a SUV around a school yard." This
could will happen and people will just keep on driving them SUVs. We say NO!
The past shootings are nothing to joke about.. okay; but neither are the future shootings being forced upon U.S. citizens to protect their inalienable rights.
Is Sebelius being on this call foreshadowing how they might make an attempt at regulatory gun control?
Nice! Just as expected. Health and Human Services.
Not only will Obozo fire off an executive order with major over reach, he intends to use regulatory powers to limit gun/ammo ownership.
Sounds like they are planning an all out assault on gun owners.
I notice she is in all meetings for anything he does.
So when are Obama, Biden and Feinstein giving up their armed protection. Need to set the example ya know.
Handmaiden of Satan ... and I’m not joking.
I thought the tax code penalized 5O1C3 charitable organizations who involved themselves in political activities?
They’re all liberal. I would be surprised if they didn’t take orders from BHO.
Funny how this communist tyrant never consults the taxpayers.
