    Which they had no authority to do. Term limits can not simply be ignored by the will of the government.
    The City government WRITES the laws regarding CITY term limits. Take a civics class. The city gov't VOTED to extend term limits to 3 terms. What part of that do you not understand? They set the term limits within THEIR CITY, period. Get it?

    I'm not very much wrong, and the courts have not held any Bloomberg laws in violation of the second amendment. Just because he MAY WANT to violate it, does not mean that he has violated it. There's a huge difference which you do not seem to understand.

    Celebrate? Yes, encourage wholesale murder, no. See, there is a difference between passing laws based upon necessity and public harm versus enforcing one's beliefs against the populace, personally I think Bloomberg is the lowest of human life and he can't leave the world quickly enough, HOWEVER, my personal feelings should an assasination attempt become successful are seperate from what is the morally correct choice, I can think in more than one dimension at a time.

    I despise Bloomberg's politics. I'm not a fan of him, but I'd never want him or anyone else poisoned or killed over what they believe and support.

    I'm disgusted that anyone finds this excusable or even that it has merit. What is tyrannical is killing people over their rights to free speech and the freedom to believe and vote how they want to.

    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 am a Jeffersonian philosopher, one dead tyrant puts the rest on notice. While I don't personally encourage, endorse, or condone political killing there is a chance that someone will try, and as I've been warning people for quite a few years, a charged political climate with emboldened politicians will lead to violence. There are psychopaths out there and all they need is one too many pushes to go over that cliff, I'd rather if that happens that someone who deserves it(like a tyrannical politician) suffer their consequences than innocents in public.

    Here's the thing, I'm not a cold blooded man, but I am a logical one. Logic dictates that we are at a political crossroads and they are always violent, I HATE Bloomberg and would rather him lose politically, but if a psychopath does get him I'm not going to hide my feelings of glee. The difference is I don't wish for his death, but don't have a thimble's worth of sympathy for him either.

    I don't need to take a civics class. The people voted for term limits to be put on the Mayor of NYC and as soon as the city wanted them gone they ignored the people and voted them gone. It was an exercise of self interest and a disregard for the wishes of the people. If I recall they didn't even last one election cycle.

    Again, you should read the second amendment. I'm not wishing anything, but merely following the law.

    Is it ok to cheer the murder of John Lennon while not supporting the actions of Marc David Chapman?

    How about cheering the attempted murder of President Ronald Reagan while not supporting the actions of John Hinkley, Jr.?

    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.
    Bloomberg has broken quite a few laws, don't kid yourself.

    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?
    Violated multiple state and federal laws in that sorry excuse for a "sting" in Arizona, using NYC officers for unlicensed surveillance outside of their jurisdiction in an attempt to illegally purchase weapons across state lines.

    Again, you should read the second amendment. I'm not wishing anything, but merely following the law.

    The 'people' did not 'vote for term limits to be put on the Mayor of NYC' as you falsely claim.

    The people of NYC DO NOT VOTE FOR TERM LIMITS. EVER. THE CITY COUNCIL SETS TERM LIMITS.

    You made an incorrect claim and now you're in so deep you're just embarrased to back off. It's OK. I won't hold it against you. Maybe you'll grow up one day.

    Which law that Bloomberg has instituted has violated the second amendment? Specifically, please.

    Exactly. These people are having a problem with the amount of authority the government has in their lives. What is the best of action for the government? They can either do more of the same and make them even more angry or they can back off and give them some space? It's not exactly hard to figure out, really.
