Bloomberg: ‘Most people I know don’t even have a gun’
The Daily Caller ^ | January 18, 2012 | Caroline May

Posted on 01/19/2013 3:04:53 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

WASHINGTON — New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg slammed pro-gun advocates while encouraging America’s other mayors to pressure Congress to pass President Barack Obama’s gun-control proposals, during a lunch gathering of the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Friday.

“Most people I know don’t even have a gun,” Bloomberg said, claiming America is “the only industrialized country in the world” that has a gun “problem” where there are more guns than people.

Bloomberg spoke highly of the proposals Obama laid out Wednesday and called the current enforcement of gun laws a “tragic joke.”

“This is not a Constitutional question, but it is a political courage question and it is an issue for Washington — we can’t do it alone,” Bloomberg said.

“This week President Obama and Vice President Biden did step up and put forward a comprehensive plan for attacking gun violence, and I give them both a lot of credit for listening to the voices of everyday Americans and putting public safety ahead of special interests.”

Bloomberg said his Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization was in close communication with Biden and helped develop the slate of goals Obama announced Wednesday...

“Most people I know don’t even have a gun,” Bloomberg said.

I guess he does not know his security detail.

Reminds me of the Libs that would say “I don’t know anyone that voted for Reagan”

Such open-minded people.

The people that know the least about firearms are attempting to ban them.

Except for their bodyguards.

The 7-Round mag limit doesn’t apply to Bloomberg’s bodyguards, does it?

"New York has among the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. Most New York State gun laws are covered in two sections of New York Penal law: Article 265 - Firearms and Other Dangerous Weapons; and Article 400 - Licensing and Other Provisions Relating to Firearms. These laws ban handgun possession...."

This man is pure evil.

The city where he is mayor bans guns, and then he gives a report a head fake that no one owns them anyway.

Bloomberg is not only hostile to guns, patients in agony who deserve doctor prescribed painkillers, and 16 oz sodas.

He is also very hostile to God.

‘State Religion’: Bloomberg Defends NYC Policy Evicting Dozens of Churches From Public School Buildings

Christian churches were performing amazing outreach at these abandoned buildings, and Bloomberg stopped all of that great work dead in its tracks, claiming it sanctioned a "State Religion."

This nation is infested by evil leaders. God will judge them all one day.

Does this man’s term as mayor have a time limit? When is he going to be gone?
I would be willing to bet that more of his friends and acquaintances have guns than he knows. But let’s assume he is correct. So what? If they want to leave themselves open to attack, why does that mean I have to too?

NYC used to have a two term limit for mayor. But, surprise, surprise-Bloomturd got the law changed so he could run for a third term.

This should serve as a warning for 2016. Obongo isn't going to let go of his throne.

Why all of the sudden is an overbearing authoritarian mayor the self appointed voice of the people of the USA? Who elected him to be our voice of ones outside NYC? He doesn’t speak for me. Most people I know have firearms and they for certain are not going to surrender that rights for the likes of him or his Nanny State ilk. Go Away Bloomberg. Go find yourself a third world nation to own and be king. Take all your friends in government in NYC and DC with you. Take your governor with you. Take Christie with you also.

“Most people I know don’t even have a gun,” Bloomberg said, claiming America is “the only industrialized country in the world” that has a gun “problem” where there are more guns than people.

Note to Bloomie supporters: Most people I know don’t even run a newspaper. That does not give Bloomie or the Marxist in our White House the authority to ignore the Constitution and violate the First Amendment right of freedom of the press for those who do run a newspaper or who wish to run a newspaper. Similarly, the fact that a petty tyrant wannabe doesn't know many gun owners does not give Bloomie or the Marxist in our White House the authority to ignore the Constitution and violate the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms for those who do own firearms or wish to own firearms.

Personally, I think if we wanted to end violence we should ban cities. It seems to me most of the gun violence comes from big cities so instead of guns being the problem perhaps cities are the problem......and their mayors.

Absolutely. He has ~$25 billion dollars net with, and supports higher tax rates ‘for the rich’, that also won’t affect him.

Are/do any of them belong to the “Pink Pistols”? A gay pro-2nd group. Besides which, why would you tell this asshat anything if you knew he had intentions of trying to take something away from you? (’Hand in the air’, “Ooh, Ooh mr. mayor. I own a gun.”’) What’s next? “I don’t even know anybody that puts salt on their food.” “I don’t even know anybody that smokes.” (except hussein) “I don’t even know anybody that drinks soft drinks.” What a miserable life this guy leads. But, in comfort.

Kind of foggy right now in norther NV for the trip to Carson City. Hopefully it will burn off before our ETD.

Share the lead.

Regarding 'industrialized country' ~ Bloomberg conveniently forgets the 52 million people, 6 million of them Jews, who were murdered in Europe in the last century ~ mostly by firearms!

The only reason the Europeans didn't murder more is they ended up occupied by the United States and Russia.

It's just a matter of time and those 'industrialized' countries he thinks of so highly over in Europe will be murdering millions more ~ we can only pray he's on vacation in one of the target cities when that starts up.
