Bloomberg's Gun Control Rally Names Boston Bomber as Victim of Gun Violence
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | June 19, 2013 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 06/19/2013 11:01:17 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

At a June 18 gun control rally in New Hampshire sponsored by New York mayor Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns group, the name of Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was read aloud as a recent victim of gun violence.

Throughout the rally, organizers read a list of names of people who had been killed with guns since the Dec. 14 shootings at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT.

When they read Tsarnaev's name, pro-gun supporters who were at the rally to counter Bloomberg's group began shouting, "He's a terrorist," according to a report by Tim Buckland of the New Hampshire Union-Leader.

Tsarnaev was killed by police in a gun fight days after detonating bombs at the Boston Marathon.

Pro-gun attendees said the buses of the rally organizers had Texas license plates, and rally organizers refused to talk to talk to the media. Gun rights supporter Tony Mayfield was in attendance and said: "This is joke. We have, for all intents and purposes, a corporation from out of town doing this little publicity stunt here."(continued)

Beyond belief. Are they calling it "leisure-place violence" or some such?

Did they also have the Newton shooter on that list? How about Chris Doner...he shot himself?

Unreal.

I wonder if one of the good guys was able to get that name on the list to make Big Brother Bloomberg look like an idiot.

WTF? That bug was killed by being run over by his own brother, yet they are blaming the gun?

According to Commie libs, terrorists are victims when they are Muslim..had Tsarnaev been a member of the Tea Party and a white guy they would have called him a terrorist

Newtown shooter was white, therefore not a victim..besides, he fits into their agenda of taking away our guns

They should have included all 3 Obama-gay-love choir members from Trinity Church.

Obamatollah had them all shot to death in 2007/2008.

Tens of thousand of rounds fired by police and the only fatality was from one the brothers running over the other with a car. They are worse shots than the bad guys shooting at Fi and Michael, on Thursday.

organizers read a list of names of people who had been killed with guns since...

In fairness, was his brother on the following reading of the list of names of people who had been run over shortly before being killed with a gun?

The only thing Bloomberg has been good on, oddly, is letting the NYPD carry out programs that kept NYers safe (such as Stop and Frisk). He’s defended them pretty firmly.

Otherwise, he stinks.

I’m a big fan of “gun violence”. Every time some terrorist ends up dead instead of an innocent person dying, I approve. Every time some muscular thug encounters an armed woman or an elderly person who can shoot, I celebrate the chose of gun violence over unarmed victimhood.

Could be. They’re confused about a lot of things.

True, but in Tamerlan’s case, IIRC, it was the car crash that was terminal. Thus Howie Carr’s nickname for him, “Speedbump”.

next they will read the names of all the criminals shot by the NYPD as ‘victims of gun violence.’

Trayvon would have been on the list as well, but that was in 2012/s;) CRIMINALS should NOT be on any such “list”!

Meanwhile, in San Bernardino, CA, Organizing For America drew a crowd of three (3) vehement to their anti gun rally.

Keep on your toes, but I don't think those guys are winning.
