The Joyce Foundation is probably the most anti-gun foundation out there, funding much of the anti-gun research that has been done. It was not particularly surprising
to be reminded of Obama's relationship to the organization:
Obama tried to imagine himself in different roles. He considered becoming president of the Joyce Foundation, a Chicago organization that gives out roughly $50 million a year to initiatives on the environment, poverty, violence, and schools. The position was high-profile, well paying, close to home, and appealed to his sense of public mission. Obama knew the foundation's work because he was on its board at the time. . . .
