(CNSNews.com) – If you sell a gun to your son, “there’s something wrong with your family," says New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. In a radio appearance on Friday, Bloomberg, a gun control activist and co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, praised the legislation that is now moving forward in the Senate. The bill would require universal background checks for most sales of firearms, including those online and at gun shows.

So sayeth the pathetic little man who canned the competent deaf interpreter Lydia Callis because it hurt his ego that she was more popular than he was.

Why would you sell it? Only a rich Jew would do that. It would hand it down to him.

Why don't you just give—I don't know if you should have a gun or not, but if you have a commercial transaction of $100 with your son, there's something wrong in your family.

The irony is that I don't think the sensational part of this quote has anything to do with guns but rather, Bloomberg is focusing on the fact that a father would sell anything to a son rather than give it to him. I guess if you are a billionaire, you can give things away to your family without worrying about the cost.

But I generally GIVE my sons firearms, they are my sons. I love them and we go to the range and hunt together.

Yeah just GIVE it to them. BTW, my mommy bought me my last two handguns (I did the paperwork, she just paid for them) as Christmas/Birthday presents.

I learned that this assh*le goes to his estate in Bermuda every week-end. He has permission to bring his armed NYPD security detail with him (which he does).

I heard it on Rush’s show a couple of days ago.

Ok, I'll NOT sell it to my son, I'll GIVE it to him. Is that better, Bloomingidiot?

IIRC, the bill currently in the Senate would not require a background check on a sale or gift to a family member.

So what is Bloomin’ Idiot talking about?

In a way...maybe. At the time I did it I could afford it, so gave my kids nine millimeter automatics for graduation presents.

Bloomberg actually has two daughters, I believe, who are quite successful in their own right. All politics aside, it is refreshing to see the children of billionaires work on their own instead of just becoming trust fund babies.

This is exactly why the created zero-tolerance; so they wouldn't have to distinguish between bad people doing bad things with a gun, and decent people merely owning guns for their own protection.

Zero-tolerance requires the IQ of a two-year old, which is what makes it so attractive to the mentally deficient.

I should just give my pristine, original Remington-Rand 1911A1 to my son? He can buy it or wait and take it from my cold, dead hands. That’s what inheritance is for.

Yes, I believe that he needs a deep colonic enema, one that would penetrate all the way to his brain.

Selling him a gun means he must not have enough, right?

That is the problem being solved.

Well I sorta have to agree. In our family we don't sell guns to our kids. They receive them as presents. I got my first at 7 years old. However all my guns were lost in a _________________________________. Since then I have become a pacifist and refrain from having anything to do with the "gun culture".

Well, I guess I’m all good with Bloomturd then, I did not sell my 9 year old his rifle, I handed it to him and said, “This is yours.”

That’s as much compliance as he’ll ever get from me.
