Skip to comments.Bloomberg: What are Obama, Romney going to do?
Posted on 07/20/2012 8:13:55 AM PDT by Zakeet
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has emerged as one of the nations highest-profile supporters of gun control, demanded on Friday that the presidential candidates stand up and tell us what theyre going to do about mass shootings.
Asked about the Colorado mass shootings at a movie theater showing The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colo., that killed at least 12 people, Bloomberg said politicians needed to offer policy proposals in addition to prayers and sympathy.
Soothing words are nice, Bloomberg said during an interview on WOR News Talk Radio 710 in New York City. But maybe its time the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what theyre going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country. ... No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them, concretely, not just in generalities, specifically, what are they going to do about guns?

... and Libtards like me are just beginning to start our motors on this screed ... again!
Romney will have to be injected with massive doses of starch directly to the spine in order for him not to collapse on this issue.
Make a new law you dipshnit liberal. The killers are not following the law that you cannot murder, maybe they will follow the law that you cannot have a gun.
Guns are illegal in Chicago, you see how that has worked.
Hey Bloomy how many people got shot in your city last night in individual shootings?
How many have been committed by deranged white males wearing body armor? And, Mayor, what are you doing about the NYC murder rate? (And whatever you are doing or are not doing -- it isn't working.)
Well as Governor, Romney already implemented his own “Assault Weapons” ban so we know where his true position lies on “Scary” guns.
There's an air to this that insinuates these events happen daily.
How about going to Israel for a week, Bloomie? I'd bet you'd feel more safe there than you do in your own city. Then again, you've got armed security details, so you don't count, do you?
This WILL become the undersea quake to start a gun-ban tsunami. It's coming.
Stocking up before January just in case.
Heck, 12 dead? That’s almost a typical night in Chicago!
Bloomberg really fancies himself to be a national leader, doesn’t he?
Unemployment just passed 10% in NYC. Maybe he might want to pay some attention to affairs in his own jurisdiction, and we Americans will tend to ours.
Check you at the entrance where a lot of people are gathered. If you don't have a gun, they issue you one to shoot back at the bad guys. I wonder how many good guns (concealed carriers) were at the event?
are you kidding me?
after the clinton “assault weapons ban” expired, governor mcromney instituted his own personal “assault weapon ban” for his state....
what do you think he will do with executive power?
What are you going to do?
A whole movie theater full of people and not a single concealed carry permitee who is capable of firing back? After the 2002 Moscow Theater hostage debacle, I woke up to how inviting a theater full of people would be to any terrorist, especially a jihadist.
The people of Colorado can handle it just fine.
If somebody in that theater had been armed and trained, this pompous mental midget wouldn't be asking that question.
What all the gungrabbers are really doing today is throwing a party. They love it when somebody goes postal; they don’t give a rat’s ass about the people killed.
The Zimmerman case didn’t cause enough fear and chaos.
Now they can further their gun control crap. Hmmm
Require every citizen to own and get training in how to use a gun. Enact “Shall Issue” CCW laws in every state. The bad guys won’t be so free with guns if they know that people are ready to shoot back.
I actually agree with this POS for once, politicians should clearly state their positions and intentions regarding gun control. That makes it easier for us to root out the hidden gun grabbers and then vote the SOBs out of office.
As I've said before, I don't put anything past the dick-tater & his handlers.
I want them to look into the culture of Hollywood. Chances are this idiot grew up watching violent movies 24/7. Guns are the problem? I say Hollywood is the a big chunk of the problem.
Based on the Supreme Court ruling on health care, does that mean Congress could pass a law requiring everyone to purchase a gun, and fining them if they refuse to do so?

Blow it out your bloomers.
the last think we want to do is make sure responsible law abiding people have a means to defend themselves under an attack by a nut job with a rifle. /s
Dear Nanny B: short answer to your question - ARM EVERYBODY, you jackass!
The best way to prevent this crap is to encourage more citizens to arm themselves, and train to use their firearms. A bullet in the back of the perps head would have been a good way to end his evil.
How many gang bangers have been killed in Chicago this year?
Sounds like he has a bloomer wedgy again. Sorry SOS that he is. He has armed security to protect him so what’s his beef? Besides he probably had a private screening of the show and would never deign to mingle with the lowly scum who go to a local cinema. Unless of course it is a red carpet event. Then he would have to mingle with hollywood scum which he would just love.
Helping keep mankind warm for 65 years.
Bloomberg needs to stick with what he knows - taking sugarery drinks away from citizens - and telling the ‘little people’ what they can eat if they’re good. What a wad...
Another nitwit pol dipping his beak in the still-cooling blood of the victims.
What are we going to do about automobile accidents statistic show about 115 dead per day or about one dead every 13 minutes. Are we going to take all the cars away?
And please, I hope some one does not come back and say Well there is not much we can do about car accidents, but we sure can do something about guns Since we have plenty of politicians who are of the same mind set as Bloomberg, matter of fact right now one of them is abusing the public housing project you know where. Because of it I do believe that a well armed public is just about as essential as having a car, perhaps even more so.
Everything they can.
Hey Bloomie, would you feel any better if they died by being run over by a Chevy Blazer or killed by Islamic terrorists? All I can say to you is hands off our guns and you can get lost.
Step one is to properly identify the shooters, who in all cases have either been Muslim Jihadis or homegrown crazies. They're already tapdancing all around the Jihad angle on this one.
Here is a sickening thought that someone here has probably already made but I haven’ read it yet.
Obama will get a bounce form the Aurora shootings like he did after the Grifford shooting.
He will attend the funerals and say pretty things about compassion and understanding and non-violence and the need for us all to come together and love one another and re-elect him.
People will swoon. It could incite a new wave of Obama fever and push up his numbers.
Anyone know if the murderer is an Obama fan? That could have been the motive.
