Napster co-founder and former Facebook president Sean Parker ponied up $250,000 for the Bloomberg-backed gun control push on expanded background checks in Nevada.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Parker, 35, donated the funds to Nevadans for Background Checks, the group behind a controversial ballot referendum drive that would expand background checks to include almost all gun transfers in the state. The figure joins some $1.9 million already in the organization’s war chest contributed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety campaign.

Parker is not the first billionaire to join the effort as Nevada casino mogul Elaine Wynn announced last week that she was accepting a membership on the group’s board.
