Posted on 11/03/2012 1:23:36 PM PDT by zeestephen
"We dont need it," Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the citys 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.
Mickey Doomberg hates military people! (Sorry Kanye - Sue me!).
There, fixed it.
He is nuts. That is all.
Everything this guy does is political, as ceaselessly advertises his politics. Hard to believe he gets people to vote for him. Must be a government union thing.
NYC residents voted for this prick 3 times, they must love the job he’s doing or be stupid to not have moved away by now.
They won’t allow Guardsmen in because they will be armed?
idiotic at the very least.
My wife and I who lived in NYC for 22 years (we fled last year) incredulously question why Bloomberg would feel more comfortable with the NYPD than the National Guard.
The insanity of modern Liberalism on full display here, for those who manage to see it and think it through.
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.
What a complete ditz! As long as he’s protected the hell with the common folk. For NYC to go from Rudy to bloomy - NYC is tanking!
It would be nice if this disaster turned out to do for Bloomies career what Katrina did for Nagan’s...but when you’re a bazillionaire I guess you can do whatever you want to.
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.
I do not believe that we science types have a number large enough to express the stellar stupidity of Bloomdork.
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.
this has to be about unions and overtime etc etc...
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.
His own private army.
Bloomberg is the proto-ype of the coming global ruling elite.
How do you “guard” something without weapons?
Maybe it was because one of the guardsmen had a 20oz Coke.
“Bush Declares State of Emergency for Louisiana
By VOA News
28 August 2005
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 ...”
he is worth every cent that they pay him.....oh, wait, he works for free....well he is still only worth what they pay him!!!nothing
All donated soda must not be larger than 16 oz?
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.
He likely made a deal with the government union police bosses.
The overtime associated with Sandy would be reimbursed by FEMA.
FEMA gets it's money where?
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.
"The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns."
Translation: "The only people *WE* want on the street with guns, are people who are under my direct command and control, who answer to me an no one else. Period. And when I say "we" I mean the Royal We, which means me, personally, as your King."
Art imitates life, or life imitates art?
“THE GOVERNOR” from the series “The Walking Dead” comes to mind....
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.
I grew up with squirrel hunters who didn’t approve of wasting ammo.
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.
I dunno. I sorta get a warm fuzzy from it, considering the current political situation.
I know they live in a different world, just wish they would leave my world alone.
If they shoot a goblin they will end up behind bars.
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.
They pay alot for him - like their freedom and for some maybe their life.
Only if they get caught.
Just like Katrina. Wonder when they will start busing people to other states...
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.
The south is full up...especially Florida. No room left for New Yorkers in Red Hampshire, either. Plenty of room in the Catskills and Adirondacks, though...
Glenn Beck was right...again.
