Skip to comments.Bloomberg Is His Own Worst Enemy on Gun-Control

At first, it looked like an epic-fail (and I really hate that phrase) for Michael Bloombergs new gun control group, Everytown For Gun Safety. Deciding that they should organize a protest outside of the NRA annual meeting in Indianapolis, gun control advocates flocked to show their disdain for American gun-owners But, there was only one problem: With a mere 25 people deciding to show up for the rally, the protest looked more like an OFA global warming meeting.
Apparently, two dozen people was the absolute most the anti-gun group, Hoosiers Concerned About Gun Violence, was able to gather for the afternoon Heck, I could probably attract a larger crowd by handing out high-capacity sodas on any given afternoon.
At first, this almost seems like a failure in the anti-gunners ability to effectively influence the debate over gun-rights. But, judging by a recent video of anti-gun activists in Virginia, the relative invisibility of this rally might be a blessing in disguise for the Nannycrats group. After all, the protesters that make a habit of picketing the NRA headquarters in Virginia arent exactly the most eloquent spokespeople for the repeal of American rights.
What Triggers a Protest of the NRA? Ha Knife control. (It already exists.) Gun control advocates should start taking gun-safety lessons Maybe then, theyd stop shooting themselves in the foot.
Lets face it: The anti-gunners dont really have a stellar track record of swaying the masses. Pierce Morgan was canned from CNN after deciding to make gun control his crusade. Of course, he didnt exactly learn his lesson: Just last week he called concealed carry advocates assassins. Hes even continued his anti-NRA rant with the absurd allegation that the NRA is colluding with gun manufacturers in an effort to arm every American Which, really doesnt seem like that bad of an idea. I mean, heck, at least the bad guys would be out-gunned. (Maybe we should just make anyone who doesnt purchase a gun subject to a special tax. After all, Pierce seemed pretty amicable to a similar idea when it came to healthcare.)
Everytown has already managed to show its gross ignorance on gun issues And theyve only been around for a matter of months. Recently they released a fear-mongering poster, asking when we will tire of gun violence If you cant see whats wrong with this poster, you clearly dont understand the conceptual mechanics of firearms (and therefore, shouldnt exactly be in charge of regulating them):
So while the rally in the Hoosier state may seem like a failure for Team Bloomberg, it might actually be a blessing. After all, Hoplophobics cant really show their ignorance, if no one is watching them. My advice to Bloomy is that he should lay low for a little while. Maybe, if he stays out of the spotlight, people will start to forget how discredited his arguments really are.
Their graphic was mis-captioned.
1. Cartridges don’t exit the end of a barrel, bullets do.
2. The caption should therefore read, “What’s faster than a speeding cartridge?”
3. Answer: Even a snail.
The gun in that photo must be spring loaded. That way you can use the cartridges over and over. ;-)
Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund are not tax-deductible.
Interesting. So blatantly political even Barry's IRS wouldn't grant them tax exemption?
Someone posted something the other day that claimed that poster was a parody. Can’t say one way or other myself.
Maybe Bloomberg's shills should do what "Occupy" did and run ads on Craig'sList offering to pay young people to pretend to care about ancient liberal ideas...
I guess it’s complicated:
25 was all they could fit on the Buss - and that probably included the press....
Wish I could get one of those guns that fires the entire cartridge out the barrel. It’s a perfect illustration of the firearm illiteracy of the anti-gunners.
Its just about the only kind of cartridges you can buy no days, those you have to throw! ;-)
First, get yourself a lobotomy, then file the rims off the cartridges, bore out the barrel a wee bit, load one cartridge normally and drop the rest down the muzzle. You get extra points if it explodes in your face. ;o)
Unusually ham-handed even for a liberal campaign. The late, great “Coffee Party” comes to mind. Whatever Bloomie is paying his political consultants, they’re ripping him off.
I read elsewhere that the rally was about 7 blocks from the Indianapolis Convention Center and Sharron Watts was protected by armed guards.
The headline is only half the truth: Bloomberg is also everyone’s worst enemy.
In the language of the Low-info gun grabbers:
Not to mention the fact that the bullet holder thingy is a lot smaller than the hole thingy in the shooty thingy that fires the bullets..
I wish there was some way to outlaw Bloomberg from being able to use armed body guards and fancy security systems for his mansions... then maybe he'd get a clue how real people feel.
