Bloomberg leaves office today, protected by firearms
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:02:35 AM »
When New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg leaves office today he will enter civilian life protected by firearms.

The same man who has spent much of his career and personal fortune trying to render good, law-abiding men and women defenseless, will now surround himself with a team of armed bodyguards.

Bloomberg’s security detail will be comprised of former police officers that he purchased away from the NYPD with the promise of early retirement, six-figure salaries, and other perks that go along with protecting America’s most notorious anti-gun zealot.

Bloomberg’s hypocrisy validates what five million NRA members and tens of millions of gun owners already know: The freedom to own and carry firearms is essential to our fundamental right of self-defense.

If this weren’t true, then Michael Bloomberg would eschew his security team and walk about town unarmed and defenseless like so many of his former constituents. To be sure, the threats he faces as a former public official are legitimate and should be taken seriously. However, they are no more legitimate or serious than the threats that many American men and women face every day – and that’s especially true for many folks who live and work in New York City.

Bloomberg’s hypocrisy on gun rights should come as no surprise.  Earlier this year, he proclaimed:  “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom.” (Emphasis mine.)

It was a rare moment of honesty, and Michael Bloomberg has certainly governed as if there should be one set of rules for him and his fellow wealthy political elites, and another set of rules for the rest of us.

To Bloomberg, most Americans are too dumb, or too insignificant, to be afforded much freedom at all. He believes we have to be told everything from what to eat, to how much soda we can drink. And above all, he wants us stripped of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

Thus, the same man who obtains special permission for his personal security force to carry firearms in so-called “gun free” countries like Bermuda, is also responsible for gun confiscation notices like this one being delivered to law-abiding gun owners in his city.

The same man who won’t go out for a burger unless he’s surrounded by a wall of protection that only firearms can provide, also won’t allow his city’s most vulnerable men and women to protect themselves and their loved ones from violent criminal attack.

Liberals are the worlds best practitioners of hypocrisy.

He's just a NWO-tool like most...

Yes, Bloomberg's a nanny stater. But, he was also a good mayor and a generous man. He took a salary of one dollar-a-year and personally gave the city of New York over $650 million of his own money.

Another interesting fact about Bloomberg's tenure. By the time he left office, mayor Giuliani had cut crime in New York City by 76% – an impressive record. As mayor Bloomberg leaves office he can boast of having reduced crime from the already spectacular Giuliani record by another 34%. Making New York City the safest big city in America.

Low crime rates in the big city is a big deal, enhancing business, safety and the quality of life. Now if he could have only done something about traffic!

Maybe the crime rates dropped because robbers couldn't get away faster with all the extra traffic.

Just some perspective. A concealed carry permit was impossible to get before Bloomberg became mayor. Even during Giuliani's administration and before. No mayor could change the anti-gun aspect of New York city culture. City Council is a Politburo. Good luck passing liberal gun laws.
