    Re: Bloomberg's gun-control idea: Cops go on strike

    I've actually got an idea here that could solve lots of problems. Bloomberg can have his gun control if and only if he can collect 30 thousand guns personally without getting shot dead, all gun laws will be in place but if Bloomberg is personally present he can try to take them. If Bloomberg gets shot dead trying we drop the gun control debate once and for all and if there is a problem we can allow people who know what they are talking about to issue policy, all suspect laws that Bloomberg helped pass from guns to sugary drinks would become null and void upon his death if he tries the collection, and we'd be done with him once and for all. Oh, and if someone were to protect their property by shooting someone trying to take their guns(Bloomberg) it would be a no foul situation legally as long as they were not violating any laws prior.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I know I'm pointing out the obvious, but Bloomberg has gone over the top.

    He truly believes he could clean up the acts of the 'great unwashed' and is trying to do this and the Lemmings are running along behind him headed for the cliff.

    What Bloomberg misses is that the vast majority of LEOs are very strong supporters of the Second Amendment and the individual RTKBA. Police officers understand that they have very little to fear from the law-abiding gun owner. They see the truth of who is and isn't using guns to commit crime every day. These officers realize that what we need to do is take criminals off the streets, not take guns out of the hands of legal gun owners. Until we do that, nothing is going to change.

    seems to me that if cops nation wide went on strike then a lot of non-gun owners would be looking to be new gun owners

    Christie rips Bloomberg over anti-gun sentiments - NYPOST.com
    Mayor Bloomberg ramped up his gun-control rhetoric to a whole new level last night, saying heís surprised cops donít walk off their jobs until the public forces lawmakers to get guns off the streets.ďI donít understand why police officers across this country donít stand up collectively and say weíre going to go on strike, weíre not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do whatís required to keep us safe,íí he told CNNís Piers Morgan.
    Chris Christie complained about something!? Say it ainít so. If that fat piece of **** is so worried about upholding second amendment rights, he should turn to New Jersey first. **** New York, that ass backwards stretch of polluted water can do whatever it wants. But to get a gun in New Jersey youíre treated like a god damned criminal! The time and money involved to get something as simple as a handgun permit. Why the **** do I have to get governmentís permission to buy a gun. Itís a right, not a privilege. That fat piece of **** Christie, all he likes to do is run his mouth whenever he ainít shoving Twinkies down it.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Politicians assume people are too stupid to look up their past or even what they are currently doing.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    BBerg is an idiot. Most cops support law abiding citizens owning firearms.

    Most cops are also people who own firearms themselves. Bloomberg really is a complete loon. Wanna know the funniest thing of all, when he 1st ran for mayor and was elected, he ran as a republican and the republican party accepted him as one and supported him, even though he is as far away from conservative ideology as one can get. Then again, the GOP is quickly becoming a party that far from conservative ideology as well.

    Interestingly the GOP is getting more conservative among the overall voting base and the new blood of the party is more conservative than the old guard which is fighting tooth and nail to be "option B" to the progressives and yellow dog Democrats. I don't know why the old guard is fighting so much, if I had a choice between a good Blue Dog Democrat who tries to preserve smaller government or a RINO that wants to "just do less expansion than the progressives" then I would go Blue Dog.
