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

    Another stupid idea by a anti-2nd amendment loon. This idea could backfire and encourage more people to purchase firearms if cops were to suddenly go on strike.



    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 he’s surprised cops don’t walk off their jobs until the public forces lawmakers to get guns off the streets.“I don’t understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe,’’ he told CNN’s Piers Morgan.
    "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"

    Bloomberg is really a jerk. I don't know what New Yorkers love about him so much. I lived in New York many decades ago and I wouldn't spend 5 minutes there now.

    Let's remember that he won last time with a slim majority against a nobody and had to spend about a hundred million of his own money (peanuts to him) to do that. it seems because he did well in business he thinks he knows more than everyone else. Look at his big cup of soda initiative.

    Bloomberg is proof positive that too much money often makes someone a loathsome asshole. It's a crying shame that so many New Yorkers seem to support plutocracy.

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

    My own anecdotal experience is that most cops support the 2nd amendment and for the most part don’t have a problem with law abiding citizens owning guns. I tried to look for some sort of survey that had addressed it and found mention of a NACOP (National Association of Chiefs of Police) survey that strongly supported that stance but didn’t find the actual survey. I didn’t look too hard.

    So while I am sure LEOs want the guns out of the bad guys’ hands, I doubt that most of them want to make it harder for law abiding citizens to have them. Perhaps I am wrong.

    This is New York we're talking about—a city, and indeed a whole state, deeply infested with exactly the sort of stupidity that Bloomberg epitomizes.

    Stories like this ought to be no surprise. Nothing is too stupid to happen in New York.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

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

    Cops going on strike until the people do something to keep them safe? The police are under no legal obligation to keep anyone safe. Try to sue the cops for not stopping a mugging, see how far that gets you. And we have to voluntarily surrender our guns to make the cops feel better about protecting us?

    Go pound sand Bloomberg. From my cold, dead hands.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Chiefs of police tend to play politics, it's an appointed position afterall so when they live in cities where the higher ups are pathetic clowns that are pro gun control they adopt the position to get ahead. There was a story a while back where a police chief advocated a total gun confiscation door to door, his officers issued a statement basically saying "do it yourself, if you want to get your ass shot off fine, but we won't comply".
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
