The latest from Bloomberg: Gun Show Undercover.
“… He noted that Podesta, Rivera and two other Dems who endorsed him today – Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards and New Yorkers Against Gun Violence director Jackie Hilly – are people who “know what government’s about.” …”
That may be true, but I can’t think of any politician making a statement like that receiving an endorsement.
Gun control doesn’t work, but let’s keep doing it anyway because, well, we’ve got nothing else. From today’s Daily News op-ed, “Get the guns: Wanton slaying of 13-year-old cries out for crackdown on firearms“:
“… Mayor Bloomberg has filed lawsuits and staged sting operations to try to halt the flood of weapons that flow up I-95 and into New York. He has mobilized mayors around the country. And still a revolver found its way to a teenager who didn’t have the sense not to use it …”
So they’re basically admitting their gun control schemes don’t work as advertised. A rational person would recognize failure, stop and try something else. Not the DN:
“… the NYPD must keep going after guns. Must keep up the stop-and-frisks that so outrage civil libertarians. Must confront suspicious-looking passersby. Because that’s the best way to try to save lives …”
Translation: Fuck the Constitution. What we need is a fascist police state. We’re going to save your life even if it kills you.
Mayor Mike is looking for some attention again. MAIG just released a report titled, “Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns.” It looks like they’re largely repackaging their same old ideas to keep their issues in the media. I don’t see this going anywhere. Neither Congress nor Obama have any desire to take up any gun control schemes right now.
