Michael Bloomberg Puts Anti-Gun Plans Into Action
TownHall.com ^ | December 2, 2012 | Kevin Klass

Posted on 12/02/2012 6:45:45 PM PST by grcuster

America's Most Dangerous Mayor has long advocated stricter gun control laws - not just in his own mayoral jurisdiction, but in other places around the country. Not content to merely govern New Yorkers, Bloomberg has begun to put his personal fortune on the line to oust Second Amendment advocates around the country. The Sacramento Bee reports that Bloomberg spent millions in opposition of a pro-gun Democrat Congressman in California. His efforts were rewarded, as the NRA-supported Democrat lost to a more liberal candidate.

No doubt the strongest gun control advocate on Forbes' list

The RATS have Soros, “we” have Bloomberg. Same kind of Marxist jerk with a fat wallet. OTOH, the idea that Bloomberg is a Republican is laughable.

Considering the miniscule number of gun crimes from legally owned guns, what purpose would further gun control serve?

Bloomberg is an independent. NOT a Republican. He switched parties awhile back.

Gun control is kinda like trying to solve drunken driving by making it harder for sober people to own cars.

Also, the bum originally started out as a Liberal Democrat, the only reason why he jumped ship to the Republicans is because they helped him become mayor.

“the only reason why he jumped ship to the Republicans is because they helped him become mayor.”

The GOP isn’t called the stupid party for nothing is it! The only problem for Conservatives is how do we rid the GOP of those who run it so it can be used for the good of the average person?

Mayor Doucheberg is just one more traitorous, dictatorial leftist to add to the list.

OMG Costas just totally went after the Second Amendment on NBC Football. He quoted Jason Whitlock who said “If Jovan Belcher didn’t have a gun, he and Cassandra ...would still be alive.” Idiot...he could have killed her with a single punch to the temple.

Watching Sunday night football. The announcer was talking about the NFL player who killed himself.

He made a very definitive statement supporting gun control.

paraphrasing - “If he didn’t have a gun he and his girlfriend would still be alive”

Bob Costas just made me puke my beer quoting that anti gun BS!

What a hypocrite! 3 seconds after his heartfelt anti violent rant.. They run a trailer for a new show Do No Harm which, and I am not sure about this.., is about a doctor who saves lives during the day and kills at night?

It’s the culture that you and yours promotes JACKASS!

The gun didn’t kill anybody... The wack job did!

Mr. Costas, if the gun didn’t have Jovan Belcher, Cassandra would still be alive.

Furthermore, Mr. Costas, you are barking up a tree in which lives a bear, little dog.

Okay, the Tea Party people are considered terrorists because they express an opinion.

Now those who wish to own guns are public enemy number one.

One can only imagine what the constitution the Left plans to replace ours with will look like.

With those two amendments gone, anything that follows will be an edict, and nothing we can do anything about.

Even voicing an objection would warrant a drone strike in Obama’s America.

Who isn’t on the list? Oh yeah the ones who love 0 and the government for their handouts. I wish these POS progressives would leave this country and move to siberia and leave us who actually believe in Freedom and Liberty alone.

It’s not very complicated. Emperor Bloomberg is just a freelance tyrant. He’s not an R or a D. Conservative or liberal.

Like all elitists, autocrats and STATISTS, he believes his subjects would be in a better place if they would surrender their freedom and do what he says.
