Mayor Bloomberg… you are confusing
“Let me ask you this Miss, if somebody pointed a gun at you and you had a gun in your pocket, what would you do? I think that answers the question,” [Mayor] Bloomberg said Tuesday at an unrelated news conference in the Bronx.
Mayor Bloomberg said the above in response to a line of questioning from a reporter regarding how 2 NYPD officers, shooting to take down a crazy man in front of the Empire State Building, did take the man down but also injured 9 innocent people in the process.
But the thing is, Mr. Bloomberg, that the law-abiding citizens of New York can’t have a gun in their pockets. So I guess what they would do is… die.
And Mr. Bloomberg, you actively campaign to make this condition so for the citizens of New York.
Glad to know you’re looking out for your fellow man.
The thing is, it seems Mayor Bloomberg gets the concept of concealed carry. I mean, he’s got armed bodyguards so he does understand the value. But… it’s just something that for some reason he wants to deny YOU from having, yet he’ll enjoy the privilege.
Ah, sweet hypocrisy.
