Bloomberg Urges Obama, Romney, on Gun Control in Wake of Aurora Shooting
Newsmax ^ | Friday, 20 Jul 2012 09:38 AM | David A. Patten

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an ardent gun-control advocate, immediately jumped on the Aurora, Colo., shooting spree to demand the presidential candidates “tell us what they’re going to do about” such mass shootings.

Bloomberg’s remarks came during an interview on WOR News Talk Radio 710 in New York. “Soothing words are nice,” said Bloomberg. “But maybe it’s time the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they’re going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country. And everybody always says, Isn’t it tragic?” …

The Gun Control Nazis are real nutjobs...using this shooting as a way to confiscate weapons.

Because, I guess, Gun Control Nazism works great in Chicago, New York

Simple. Execute the perpetrator.

Yes, indeed. Chicago is such a peaceful place. Practically Nirvana.

The alledged murder has long ties to public education. We must come out against public education.

Bloomberg is part of the communist inspired league of insane fools. We have to quit calling this type of crackpot just a liberal, or a Democrat, or socialists, or whatever. These are the communists insane because of their constant removal of our freedom and have no regard for our Constitution guaranteed rights..

And how many armed guards does the fine liberal commie mayor have guarding his sorry B-hind??? Oh, I also see where the chosen one has said he was shocked and sad. I could have missed it, but did he say the same about the muzzie murdering bomber killing the Jews in Bulgaria?????

He should start with having his personal security detail stop carrying firearms. Then, he should loudly trumpet this fact to the populace of NYC as an example of how to be a potential victim.

The shooter did not do it alone. He must have had a teacher, roads and bridges.

Well, it does say in the Constitution that my right to bear arms “shall not be infinged”, except by the stylistic choices of nutjob murderers.

Notice also how the AP story includes the description of “white American” for the shooter? So many comments possible there that I don’t even know where to begin. They checked the guy’s citizenship? I thought they never included race? I can hear the AP reporter going “Nyaaah!” to conservatives. I can hear the AP reporter going “Wheew” to his colleagues.

The UK Mail online is reporting the shooter was a member of a violent faction of Occupy Wallstreet and was upset of the way the movie portrayed OWS.

Time to register OWS as a terrorist org.

Mayor Doucheberg is such an asshole. Take guns away from law abiding people - thats his solution to crime. Maybe if someone in the theater had been carrying concealed, they could have returned fire and stopped the psycho from killing so many innocents.

The only logical thing to do is ban indoor movie theaters. If this had been a drive-in the casualties wold have been much less.

Now that's funny right there. You didn't have to wait long to use it. I'm sorry it had to be under these conditions.

Well, any left-wing nutcase who wants to control salt, and the size of soft drinks, would certainly want to control guns.

They’ll never have ultimate power over us until they take our guns...ask Hitler.

He already had an illegal gun

ANOTHER gun control law would not made him change his mind

This neurotic monomaniac would do well to stop worrying about the rest of the country and put his attention on the open cesspool which is New York.

These asshats are so predictable. This morning I was wondering how long it would take before the cries for gun control would start. I’m sure the leftist shrilled will start blaming the tea party and rush limbaugh ( he had talked about some lib trying connect the bane character to Romney - of course that was misreported by the state run media)
Bottom line, this guy was a sick twisted nut. Period.

To be honest, in my gut I wondered about him being I’m some way connected to ows - but didn’t want to jump to conclusions( since I like facts) but if this turns out to be true I’m sure the state run media will be all over it /sarc

The police were of NO HELP in this situation, and the gunman surrendered after he did what he wanted.

The ONLY thing that could have stopped this would have been armed citizens.

Put that in your pipe, Herr Bloomberg.

Back in the 1980’s, I lived in Santa Barbara, California.

An illegal alien from Mexico broke into a young woman’s house and murdered her in her own home.

The next day, the “Santa Barbara News-Press” ran a headline that said, “MEXICAN NATIONAL ACCUSED OF MURDER” or some similar headline. I distinctly remember the words “Mexican National.”

Well, the libs had a collective hissy fit because the killer was called a “Mexican National.” A similar hissy fit happened in 1991 in northern Santa Barbara County when the mayor of Santa Maria mentioned that his city had a “Mexican problem.”

Only when a whites commit a crime is it A-OK to mention the race of the accused.

With NYC gun control laws, it could never happen there.

Bloomberg is your typical, bottom-feeding politician. Never let a good human tragedy go to waste. He is one happy, Fluking camper right now. All of Mikey’s hopes, wishes and dreams came true last night. FUMB!!! You commie freak!

No surprise, the Progressive Fascists in the political class are such shameless scum they will not hesitate for a second to try and exploit this tragedy.

It is this sort of sleazy scumbag exploitative behavior that renders people like Bloomberg complete unfit to hold any political office.

POPCORN! WITH SALT!

Have you seen the size of those popcorn containers they sell at theaters?
Disgusting! Deadly!

Yeah.
Popcorn.
That's the ticket.

I am simply amazed that no member of the press has called this The Batman Massacre.
If I remember correctly, today is also the anniversary of the first moon landing.
