    A ricin attack won't help Bloomberg's gun control efforts.

    Someone trying to shoot him with an assault weapon or unlicensed handgun would.

    Wait so you would celebrate him being murdered but wouldnt condone the action? All because you believe a democratically elected mayor is a "tyrant" for having a different position on an issue than you?

    Wow. And so all those people who were exposed to a potentially lethal poison, that's okay with you because you want to see Bloomberg dead?

    That kind of thinking is what shocked me about this thread. People weren't talking about the crazy person who did this, they were basically saying "'Atta boy!" because Bloomberg was the target without a single thought about the others who could be and possibly were harmed.


    Edited to add: I am NOT a Bloomberg fan. I wouldn't vote for him if he were running for dogcatcher, and his nanny-dictator policies in NYC make me furious. But I still don't want the man assassinated, and I most certainly don't want others harmed by the attempt.

    I wonder how the folks here who are cheering this attempt on Bloomberg's life would react if a Leftwinger did the same thing to Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, or Michelle Bachmann.

    You've basically just justified the extra DHS scrutiny of extreme right wing groups and right wing extremists whether you wanted to or not.

    And you have a problem with a politician working within the confines of the law, so having him assassinated is your answer. Quite American of you. Yeah. Oh wait, I'm sorry - you don't condone the action, just the results. Nice mental gymnastics there.

    (I live in NYC and hate MB but he'll be gone and life goes on - I don't go around wishing death on people or politicians I disagree with-regardless of issue)

    The second amendment bars his action. That is not working inside the confines of the law.

    Btw, how do you like how he ignored the term limits that the people put in place? He did a great job working inside the law there, right?

    Unless learned who did it, there is no way to know who, why or what motive. It could be a reverse action as a PR move.

    Was the 2nd amendment violated?

    Answer: No. So, he's worked within the confines of the law

    As far as his third term, the city council sets the term limits for the mayor - regardless of WHY they voted to allow a third term, they DID VOTE TO ALLOW IT. So again, he has operated within the confines of the established law at the time.

    Try again

    You know what the problem with that is besides the obvious? You see, the more that they do it the more the people they are going after will feel justified and the worse their problem will become. People are funny like that.

    Would you like to read the law again? You're very much wrong with that.

    As far as his third term, the city council sets the term limits for the mayor - regardless of WHY they voted to allow a third term, they DID VOTE TO ALLOW IT. So again, he has operated within the confines of the established law at the time.

    Which they had no authority to do. Term limits can not simply be ignored by the will of the government.
