Focus on your own problems, Mayor Bloomberg

Bloomberg Demands Gun Action from Obama and Romney

CNN: New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an outspoken advocate of stricter gun-control laws, said in a radio interview Friday the two candidates for president needed to take a firmer line in addressing gun violence.
Bloomberg’s comments came as police and the FBI were investigating a deadly shooting in Colorado that left at least 12 people dead.
“Soothing words are nice, but maybe it’s time that the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country,” Bloomberg said on WOR Radio’s “The John Gambling Show.”
Bloomberg continued, saying Friday’s tragedy should spark greater focus on how guns reach killers.  “I mean, there are so many murders with guns every day, it’s just got to stop,” Bloomberg said. “And instead of the two people – President Obama and Governor Romney – talking in broad things about they want to make the world a better place, okay, tell us how.”
“In the end, it is really the leadership at a national level, which is whoever is going to be president of the United States starting next January 1st – what are they going to do about guns?” Bloomberg asked.
Presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney met with Bloomberg in May, but an aide to the mayor said Bloomberg remained undecided about making an endorsement in the presidential race. Bloomberg won his last election as a political independent, but was previously a Democrat, then a Republican.
In his interview Friday, Bloomberg said guns getting into hands of criminals wasn’t solely a problem in cities like New York. “This is killing people every day, and it’s growing and it’s not just an inner-city, east coast, west coast, big city phenomenon. Aurora is not a big city,” Bloomberg said, referring to the suburb of Denver where Friday’s shooting took place.
Moxielouise said it best on another post: “Gun control defined: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.”                –Unknown
Bloomberg, why don’t you stick fixing your OWN city business…you know, like your 10% unemployment rate?

  1. How about punish people who wrongly use them? Or would Bloomberg prefer a soaring crime rate like in NYC?

     
  2. He needs to go back to determining the politically correct size of soft drink and leave the firearms alone.

    Let us look at Bloomberg for what he is—a human chameleon, a successor to Woody Allen’s Leonard Zelig! FIrst he’s a Dem, then a Repub, now an Indie—but all along, he has been George Soros’s factotum and errand boy!
    I went to the old-fashioned Catholic school, where, not only did the nuns beat the daylights out of us, but they put their nose into our business where it didn’t belong! Mr. Nanny State here has done the same for the last twelve years of his Pontificate—I mean Mayoralty—but for different reasons: Those nuns may have been neurotic, but they actually had genuine moral concern. This is an unknown subtlety to Mayor Doomsberg, whose real fear is that someone, somewhere, might be having fun! If I know one thing about this moral cretin, when he wants to get something done, he gets it done—look at all the useless bike lanes! Fact is, the gun control he so desperately desires is both physically and morally impossible. And he would violate our God-given right to own guns so that HE can feel safe—after he can afford private bodyguards!
    But since Mayor Zelig is so terribly concerned about what might happen as he tries to co-opt reality, maybe we should just feed him some flies!

     
  4. Left/liberals lack personal agency… meaning they’re not responsible for anything (especially if it’s bad and/or fun for them) they do, the big bad gun (or nuclear weapon or society or Bush) is.

     
  5. The first thing to be done about guns is to permit anyone that has one legally to carry it openly if they so choose. The one thing this coward in Colorado knew was that when he burst into that theater, no one else would be armed.
    There was a report on that showed how the police went into this creep’s apartment to disarm all of the bombs he had left behind. I for one would have loved if they tied him up and shoved him along in front of the bomb robot. They should have shot off some of his own munitions in his rectum. If we did that in this country and showed it on television there’d be far fewer nutjobs pulling this type of crap.
    Do you think I get a bit worked up over these incidents? Just imagine when my husband leaves his socks on the floor. You wouldn’t want to be him. 😉

     
    • Love that idea Celestine! That might prevent a few idiots from ever thinking about pulling something like this.
      And yep, open carry is fine by me. No way in heck a perp is going to walk into a place he knows people are allowed to carry and try shooting.

       
  6. The Muslim Puppet Speaks…and again, says nothing that makes any common sense. Give him one of those dangerous 16 oz sodas and wait for the 2 words he needs to utter. “I quit”
