NewsBusters ^ | 03 November 2012 | Tom Blumer

Posted on 11/03/2012 1:23:36 PM PDT by zeestephen

"We don’t need it," Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. "The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns."

And by that statement, Mayor, does that mean the criminals don’t have guns?

What an asshat.

except crooks and criminals who liberals deliberately let keep their guns so they can prey on normal people and do a little “income redistribution.”

The retired NYPD cops I know down here aren’t very impressive on the range.

NYPD gets 10 rounds a year to practise with, and that shooting they did recently showd what utter awful shots they are.
Also the guard are soldiers and soldiers have guns.
Bloomberg is an idiot and how he got to that position shows how stupid many in NY are.

I would not allow the guard in UNLESS THEY HAD GUNS, and if Doomberg doesn’t want the guns, then he doesn’t get the guard. This is like protecting an embassy with guards that have no ammunition in their weapons. This country is spinning so far out of control, I don’t know if we’ll ever get it back.

Bloomberg and Obama are birds of a feather, just on different-sized playing fields. Thankfully, there are ethnic and sexual-preferences inherent to Bloomberg that will forever prevent his ascension to a higher office. Unfortunately, similar demographics actually worked in Obama’s favor (and are keeping him close in the current presidential race). In a nutshell, homosexual Jewish men simply aren’t at hip as homosexual black men.

so.... no water to drink because of your price controls, no food for same reason, no help from FEMA because Obama rode off in Air Force One to raise more money for himself at $25,000 a plate campaign dinners...Bloomberg wanted to have a big marathon footrace run through the striken streets of NYC so he could fill up the hotels with higher-paying foreign visitors (while evicting stranded residents from their rooms).... and now Bloomberg lets looters, burglars, robbers, bashers, and rapists run wild because he doesn’t want the help from New York’s national guard units .... and all the while Bloomberg is enforcing his 16 ounce limit on any soda pop you want to buy for yourself. That’s the priority, now that footraces have finally been postponed, stop evil people from consuming those 20 ounce sodapops!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yippee (and pray) for New York the city that used to Know How.

With the Guard, NYPD might lose hundreds of millions in unionized government tax paid overtime.

He likely made a deal with the government union police bosses.

President Bush has declared a state of emergency for the Gulf Coast state of Louisiana, as it braces for the expected onslaught of Hurricane Katrina, set to make landfall on Monday.

Saturday’s emergency declaration authorizes federal officials to coordinate all disaster relief efforts and provide appropriate assistance in several Louisiana parishes ...”

Meanwhile, residents are having to arm themselves with whatever they can find to fend off looters:

Hardened New Yorkers are ready to battle lowlife criminals to protect their homes and stores in storm-ravaged areas plagued by looting and break-ins.

From your link:

In Coney Island, several residents were loading up their guns, sharpening their machetes and brandishing other deadly weapons.

The overtime associated with Sandy would be reimbursed by FEMA. Bloomberg is just a huge dick who hates the military.

Wow. Doomberg seems to be hysterical when it comes to gun possession.

But I bet he doesn’t mind to have his armed body guard around. Seems that he values his life so much more than those of the ignorant New Yorkers who voted for him.

Bingo.

With notable exceptions like Jimmy Cirillo (whom I had the pleasure of meeting and from whom I’ve taken a class), you’re right.

Cirillo had tried to do something about this in the NYPD - by getting cops interested in target shooting and shooting for more than mere qualification. To little avail, most NYPD cops are just public employees, union corruption and all.

Jimmy and his sidekick Al could run rings around most people on a handgun range - including the LAPD SWAT and other cops who were in the class I was taking.

It’s quite frankly amazing and alarming how incompetent most law enforcement agencies are about their firearms training.

That supposedly sophisticated New York City residents have voted Nanny Bloomberg into the mayor's office three times pretty much undercuts whatever claim that city's residents may have had to intelligence. They wanted lefty Bloomberg - they have him, to paraphrase H.L. Mencken, 'good and hard'.

I hope those unfortunate New Yorkers affected by the aftermath of 'Sandy' sleep well tonight knowing that their idiot mayor refused National Guard troops for protection from looters.

Bloomie and many other New Yorkers are truly phobic and irrational about guns. It's probably a big city thing.

I know they live in a different world, just wish they would leave my world alone.

The real estate moguls want to get their mitts on Coney Island. Been for years.

Cops are letting the looters take what they want. It’s destroying businesses, which fits the narrrative.

Sending the guard there stops all of this, however if someone does get shot by a guardsmen, Coney Island will erupt. Doesn’t help Democrats.

Well, as long as there are no riots and rampages, then this is no big deal.

Maybe New York City folks really are more civilized than the rest of the country. They aren’t allowed to have firearms in the city, right?

I don’t understand the logic of Bloomers here.
