Skip to comments.Bloomberg's Gun Show Sting: Off Target as Usual (Blame Arizona as usual)
Posted on 02/01/2011 8:54:35 AM PST by SeekAndFind
Jared Loughner, the man accused of killing six people and wounding 13 others, in the apparent assassination attempt on U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., on Jan. 8 legally purchased a similar Glock semi-automatic pistol from a gun store in Tucson months before the shooting.
Loughner passed an FBI background check, despite teachers, friends and students repeatedly claiming the 22-year-old displayed erratic, disturbing behavior.
Memo to Sheriff Arpaio:
Issue arrest warrant for Mayor of NYC
Why doesn’t he clean up the mess that is New York City and let those of us in AZ worry about what goes on here. Frackin’ buttinsky pol
Bloomberg and Mubarak....two peas in a pod.
You did not have to insult Mubarak.
I hear that Bloomberg’s crack investigative team has a hot lead on a Mexican restaurant in Scottsdale that’s using trans fat.
They’re pretty sure the miscreants are lining their Margarita glasses with excess salt as well.
Like all dictators, bloomberg well knows the value of having an enemy he can point toward, and strike. It is how dictators deflect attention from themselves.
Here’s an interesting question ( a theoretical one ).
Let’s say for the sake of argument, GUN OWNERSHIP WERE TOTALLY BANNED in Arizona...
Would Jared Loughner still have acquired his gun? If so, where?
I think Arizona and other states targeted by this poseur should investigate NYC for racketeering, corruption and organized crime.
I wonder who will return with the more numerous results and more interesting cases?
Liberals want the background check to become so restrictive and ambiguous that no one can pass it. The problem isn’t crazies slipping through the background check. The problem is that citizens depend on the authorities for their safety and protection. A parking lot full of armed, trained people makes for a hard target. People have to take responsibility for their own self-defense.
The real question people should be asking is why Deputy Dupenuts didn’t have people present at the parking lot for security, given the times and possibilities for dangerous nuts to do what Loughner did. This pop culture, fueled by leftest hate, is going to produce violence. Where was Gabby’s security?
Bloomberg's Napoleon complex is showing.
You mean "banned" as in illegal, as are cocaine, pot, meth, heroine....?
As the question is easily answered by the quickest reality check, it is neither interesting nor theoretical.
New Yorkers should stay in their cesspool and leave the free world alone.
I wonder how New Yorkers and Bloomberg would react if an Arizona mayor conducted undercover operations in NYC?
If Bloomers thinks this is going to resonate with the citizens of his city who have snow and garbage piling up in unmanageable amounts, he’s mistaken.
Maybe he’s the stalking horse for Obama but that too is doomed.
***You can take ABC’s text or on-air report’s word for this since they show none of the undercover footage mentioned. ****
Years ago oneof the national news channels did an expose on the “gun show loophole”
They sent in people, with cash, to buy as many firearms as possible from private individuals without paperwork.
At the end of the show they held up a box of fine quality firearms and the reporter smuggly said...”These guns will be turned over to the police-where they will be destroyed!”
I was sick seeing some fine new Berettas going to be torched.
“Issue arrest warrant for Mayor of NYC”
When Bloomberg tried the gun sting in Virginia, the A.G. threatened him, and others involved, with a felony, and Bloomers backed off.
I hope the AZ A.G. does the same thing.
If NYC had the same gun rules as AZ, two things would be almost certain to happen:
1. My Smith and Wesson stock would soar.
2. Gun related murders would drop.
I would really love to have the Police Departments release where the guns related to criminal acts originate. My guess is that very few of them were purchased by the person using them to commit the crime.
NY investigator travels to AZ buys gun from AZ citizen, NY investigator commits FED crime as FED law allows him only to buy gun thorough ATF dealer. Bloomberg funds purchase, he is guilty of FED crime.
In NYC people can buy illegal guns right on the streets, but Bloomberg would prefer meddling in the business of other states.
I’m SHOCKED I tell you, that Bloomberg would be party to such unethical entrapment just to make the point of how the people in Arizona are causing the high crime rate in NYC.
Tucson is not Sheriff Joe’s jurisdiction. It’s Dupstick’s.
“That’s good, because I probably couldn’t pass one.” His tone could reasonably be taken for slightly sarcastic or joking.
A real criminal would never say anything like this, which is why the sellers took it as a joke—except for one who refused to make the sale.
Maybe gun shows need to post signs similar to those seen in airports; jokes about criminal records, like jokes about bombs, may be taken seriously.
Hey, Bloomie - Shut up and grab a shovel.
