Gun Grabbing Nanny Bloomberg & MAIG At It Again

Per the NYT:

The commercial is an unambiguous appeal to gun owners: a middle-aged hunter, rifle in hand, vows that he will fight to protect the Second Amendment.The commercial is an unambiguous appeal to gun owners: a middle-aged hunter, rifle in hand, vows that he will fight to protect the Second Amendment But in a sensible, father-of-the-house tone, he also urges voters to support comprehensive background checks, “so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

The man behind the advertisement is not known for his kinship with the gun crowd: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, the nation’s fiercest advocate of restrictions on firearms since the December rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Determined to persuade Congress to act in response to that shooting, Mr. Bloomberg on Monday will begin bankrolling a $12 million national advertising campaign that focuses on senators who he believes might be persuaded to support a pending package of federal regulations to curb gun violence. The ads, in 13 states, will blanket those senators’ districts during an Easter Congressional recess that is to be followed by debate over the legislation.

It goes without saying that authoritarian scumbags like Michael Bloomberg think they know better than we do. Given his propensity for going after large sodas and salt, there’s no level of micromanagement he won’t stoop to. On Meet The Press, to fellow anti-gun left-wing stool-pigeon David Gregory, he said:

“[W]hile I think we are going to win this [background checks], celebrating in advance isn’t the right thing to do. We’ve got to go out, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us. … I don’t think we should give up on the assault weapons ban. But clearly, it is a more difficult issue for a lot of people. And I don’t know that that reflects the N.R.A.’s power. It may be just that people have different views about assault weapons than they do about background checks. … I think I have a responsibility, and I think you and all of your viewers have responsibilities, to try to make this country safer for our families and for each other. And if I can do that by spending some money and taking the NRA from being the only voice to being one of the voices, … then I think my money would be well spent … If 90% of the public want something, and their representatives vote against that, common sense says, they are going to have a price to pay for that.”

Bring it on. We’ll make it our business to punish you and your friends, Nanny.

  2. Therein lies the rub, with emphasis on “lies”, these polls aren’t taken across the breadth of the country, but just in the liberal enclaves of the east and west coasts. I live in flyover country…they didn’t ask me.

  3. Nor WILL they ask you, thatmrgguy. The vast majority of “polling” goes on in liberal bastions…not in the heartland. Every once-in-a-while, we’ll get a call from someone taking a “consumers’ survey”…I’ve NEVER known anyone who’s been “polled” on political issues…ever…and I’m 71 years old.

  4. What REALLY gripes me about that malevolent gnome is that he’s using his money to sway elections that are outside his jurisdiction. Surely, this is illegal, no? Of course, the Dems will see to it that he suffers NO consequences.

    1. If that was the case, then you or I couldn’t donate to a favored politician from another state or political jurisdiction.

  5. The problem with background checks is not the background checks. The problem with background checks is that people such as Bloomie and Feinswine and their political ilk have done nothing to disguise their true intention to morph the background checks into confiscation checklists.

  6. Some questions about the gun totin’ good ol’ country boy in the video. If he wouldn’t mind, would like the full name and the state he lives in, so that we can check to see if he is a real gun owner, and not just some actor they hired to deceive the general public. Also if that person in the video will state in writing that he received no compensation for his performance, and if he did, what was the sum received. Last but not least, was he speaking from his own words, or did he memorize a script or read from a teleprompter. Enquiring minds want to know.🙂

    1. Considering, he’s sitting on a pick-up truck with his booger hook on the trigger, violating basic rules of gun safety, I think you already know the answers to these questions.
