Bloomberg, mayor group behind $12 million gun control campaign
NBC News ^ | March 23, 2013 | Becky Bratu

A $12 million television ad campaign paid for by Mayors Against Illegal Guns hopes to push gun control efforts including comprehensive background checks.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the group's co-chair, announced the ad buy Saturday. The New York Times reported Bloomberg is financing the campaign.

“I don’t think there’s ever been an issue where the public has spoken so clearly, where Congress hasn’t eventually understood and done the right thing," Bloomberg told NBC News' David Gregory in an interview that will be broadcast Sunday on “Meet the Press.”

The ads will target both Democratic and Republican senators in key states.

One of the ads portrays a middle-aged man sitting on the back of a pick-up truck and holding a rifle.

"I've owned a gun all my life and I'll fight for my right to keep it," the man says. "Background checks have nothing to do with taking guns away from anyone," he adds.........

Time for the peasants to grab their pitchforks and torches and march on the various seats of traitorous government.

A march on the White Hut would be nice to confront the Frankenstein monster who resides therein.

Mayors against Illegal Guns!?!?!
Shouldn’t Mayors generally be against illegal things?’...like illegal immigrants, oh wait, never mind.
Maybe mayors now do need to clarify just what illegal things they are for and against. We’re through the looking glass.

Once again Mayor Doomberg is proving that liberals are nothing more than total control freaks who don’t give two cents about anything or anyone that stands in their way of consolidating their power.

“I don’t think there’s ever been an issue where the public has spoken so clearly..."

Based on recent gun and ammo sales, I'd say the public has spoken and it isn't what Bloomberg wants.

what is it with these radical commie rich types, seriously they have so much money that they think they;re God and the sad part is that there are stil idiots in our party which will let them in our party spout their crap and then act shcoked when they turn.

Then we have him telling Jindal that LA should accept the sham of a marriage of two turd pokers from NY City who moved down there.
The man and others have lost their heads

Islam and the west are not compatible.

Democrat majorities and 2A RKBA are also not compatible.

Watched the vid...What a crock of BS! Useful idiot dressed in Cabela’s finest, seated on tailgate of a pickup...How aw, shucks good old boy classic...

Anyone wanting to sell himself as a hunter and gun owner should know the rules of safe gun handling...Dontchathink?

Like keep your finger off the trigger and out of the trigger guard until you’re ready to fire...

Hope none of the kids playing in the yard wandered past the muzzle of his shotgun while responsible, all-for-background-checks “Daddy” fingered the trigger...Wouldn’t do to have little Johnnie decapitated by a negligent discharge...Oops!

Too bad the low information voters who don’t know anything about guns anyway will get sucked in, and that’s all that matters to Soros, Bloomberg and CO...

fed law immigration and drugs but the feds ignore those who violate that law.

States which enforce those immigration laws ae then sued FL, AL, AZ .

Then the feds go after guns which is a right but do not defend the marriage law.

So if the feds dont bother defending their own laws and sue states which do enforce laws then why shoud this commie prick do any different.

Hell we might as well ignore their guns laws, hate laws, affirmative action laws, and seeing as they like to bully like th ehomostapo then we should ignore their bully laws and see how they like it.

Oh wait people the average guy doesn;t even have to break a law the feds just go in with tanks, helicoptors and machine guns

Yes, higher.

Somewhere there is a Cabal made of the Lefties, the Muzzies and the Global Fascists. All think they will win and control.

All free men (and women) loose if they do.

It is our duty to stop.

Some enterprising GOP or NRA marketing person should point out that this kind of overt behavior from Bloomie is exactly the kind of behavior we've been told we're supposed to hate from “the rich”.

Bloomberg would be better off spending the money on psychiatric assistance to treat his egomania.

There are no ‘illegal’ guns; only, immoral politicians with (not so) hidden agendas that require an unarmed populace for success of their nefarious plans.

“I don’t think there’s ever been an issue where the public has spoken so clearly, ..”

CORRECT.

They have spoken with RECORD gun sales, AMMUNITION impossible to find as it gets bought as soon as it arrives.
They have spoken with RECORD communications to their Congress-critters and exploding NRA memberships.

The public HAS spoken, BLOOMBASTARD!!

And the message is clear - KEEP YOUR DAMN HANDS OFF OUR SECOND AMENDMENT YOU POWERMAD CONTROL FREAK!!!!
