As long as Bloomy didn't bribe him or threaten him than he has every right to speak his mind, no matter how crazy that mind is. We still have a First Amendment too, which gives even the craziest of people the right to speak their deluded and deranged thoughts.
    One of the things anti-NRA politicians argue actually rings true in this instance, money and influence shouldn't give one person more "free speech" than the next.

    obama has made threats against people who oppose him, against certain industries that go against his agenda, but people have denied they were threats. That's just the way it is.

    NYC has suspended DUI arrests. No fear of getting caught now... drive-on all you drunks. But you better not have a 20 ounce soda.

    Lets see now..... M.A.I.G...

    Mayors against illegal guns...

    If Bloomie is against illegal guns... Why does he keep going after the law abiding citizens?!

    Does he have a "plan" to disarm criminals?
    If not and he is only against LEGALY owned guns then isn't it false advertising on his part? Who does he think he can "hoodwink" with his gimmick?

    The biggest issue with Bloomy is that he is an angry little man that is on a power trip. This being said, we haven't learned from him and those like him. They are for "common sense" safety laws and "anti-violence" child protection acts to "protect our most valuable resource". It is all non-sense but it is emotional marketing.

    Why doesn't our side start passing out some emotional arguments? We can call a right to carry bill something like "the woman's rape defense act" and say that 95% of all Americans approve of this common sense protection act to keep our mothers and daughters safe. It is about tactics. They are killing us with their tactics and agends.
