Bloomberg Says ‘There Are Certain Times We Should Infringe On Your Freedom’ Ahead Of Anti-NRA Spending Spree

Bloomberg Says ‘There Are Certain Times We Should Infringe On Your Freedom’ Ahead Of Anti-NRA Spending Spree
UPI
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is helping drum up funds for a multi-State ad blitz this week targeting Senators he feels might be persuaded into acting on gun control legislation during the current Congressional session.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to spend far more than the $12 million he’s already spent on ad campaigns castigating Congressmen who’ve paused at the idea that infringing on personal freedoms is unConstitutional.

Bloomberg, who contributes millions out of his personal fortune to organizations and political action committees (he actually started his own anti-gun PAC last year), is helping drum up funds for a multi-State ad blitz this week targeting Senators he feels might be persuaded into acting on gun control legislation during the current Congressional session.

He’s making a play for the hearts and minds of low-information voters, with an eye toward offsetting the spending power of the National Rifle Association in the run-up to Congressional elections in 2014:

If I can do that by spending some money, and taking the NRA from being the only voice to being one of the voices, so the public can really understand the issues, then I think my money will be well spent and I think I have an obligation to do that.

Laudably quixotic as ever, Bloomberg’s idea of helping the public “really understand the issues” involves telling people they want something they don’t want — whether it be small sodas, hidden baby formula or gun bans — and then asking that they trust him to protect their safety instead of trusting the Constitution to protect their liberty.

That’s not a rant; Bloomberg said it himself Sunday on NBC News’ “Meet The Press” (full video here): “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom.”

So many ominous things in that statement:

Telling Americans it’s appropriate that the state “infringe” on the freedoms of all citizens — not those few who’ve forfeited their freedoms through the due process of law.

Perversely appropriating that word, “infringe,” straight from his most despised passage in the Bill of Rights (that’s the 2nd Amendment, guaranteeing the right to bear arms) — in order to subvert the very freedoms it was created to secure.

“We” versus “you.”

Bloomberg’s comments came as he defended his failed attempt to ban large sodas in New York. At one point, he called the whole soda-ban fiasco just a big “public awareness” campaign — one he still says the city’s health department “has the legal ability to do.”

But his remarks, and his dogged commitment to his social engineering daydream, reveal Bloomberg’s Orwellian attitude toward individual freedoms on every front. In the coming months and years, he will spend many millions of dollars to sell a hypocritical message of gun control not only to New Yorkers, but to all Americans.

How hypocritical? Bloomberg himself brings along a retinue of on-the-clock New York Police Department guards for armed protection every time he flies to Bermuda. For personal protection.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    As he said about the soft drink ban he tried to impose, it’s all about power. He’s just another power hungry POS who wants to control people’s lives. New Yorkers have shown just how stupid they are by reelecting him.

      I googled “Cerberus capital management freedom group buying guns” and found many stories about this. Without lots of research, it looks like it is true! For the last several years a company called “The Freedom Group” has been buying up American gun and ammunition manufacturers. Some of these companies are:

      Bushmaster
      Marlin
      Remington
      DPMS
      Dakota Arms and
      H&R
      DPMS Panther Arms
      NEF
      Dakota Arms
      LC Smith
      Parker
      AAC
      Barnes Bullets
      EOTAC
      INTC
      Some people worry that Freedom Group is going to control most of the firearms companies in the United States. Of course, if you control the manufacturers you can decide not to sell to civilians, or, you can raise the prices to ridiculous levels or you can make the supply of guns and ammo scarce – all sorts of logjams.
      What a perfect way to control America’s guns!
      If you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a Wall Street investment company called “Cerberus Capital Management”.
      “Cerberus” in the epic book “The Inferno” by Dante Alighieri, is a three-headed demon hound (from Roman mythology) that guards the Gates of Hell to prevent those damned souls who have just crossed the river Styx, from escaping back to the world.
      Investor GEORGE SOROS owns Cerberus!
      Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs to come out – and quickly! Why have we not heard about this in the “mainstream” media? I would think this would be BIG news.
      The absence of big media coverage on this important subject should be BIG news to you, too!

    Harold Olsen statements are true!!

  • marsha

    he is power hungry and wants to control as many people as he can, like he’s some kind of dictator, he should be thrown out of office, we dont need dictators like we now have controling our white house, we need to get rid of these people and take our country back

    • Nadzieja Batki

      Nice sounding mantra of “taking your country back” but the question exists of what variety of Predators will Americans put in place of the Predators that control it now.

        Very good point Nadzieja, hopefully they will be god fearing folks with their heads screwed on right.

  • FreedomFighter

    Remember NY City dwellers (if you have not moved out yet, do so, tax rate in Fla is 0) Bloombug has allowed you to continue smoking, drinking soda and using salt, he just wanted to remind you he is in charge of them.

    and the now pygmy dictator says:

    “I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom.”

    Yes thats right, Bloombutt decides when and what to infringe when it concerns your freedom, you have to trust him…

    like all dictators even the pygmy-dictator Bloomburg can never be trusted with your freedom.

    It is not thiers to give or take away.

        This is an individual with so much money and a warped mind that I do believe he would try to buy the presidency and more than half or the ignorant voters would vote for him. I really don’t care if someone is a Dem, Rep or Independent, all I want is the individual to make an informed decision.

        • Don 2

          As Americans, we should have the right to infringe upon, and confiscate Bloomberg’s $27 billion dollar personal wealth, to help pay for Bloomberg’s 5 ARMED body guards, Obamaphones, Obamas 100 plus golfing excursions, and Biden’s one night $321,665.00 limousine bills. It is time to spread Bloomberg’s wealth around.

Back up and look at what you have said, then actually use what brain you have left and think about it. The Republicans had a P-poor choice for a presidential candidate, then wonder why he lost. Even Newt Gingrich would have been a better choice, and he had just about as much chance as Romney.

Let NO government official tell me what I can/cannot eat or drink and we will have a discussion not to his liking and one he will never forget. I am tired of these drags in office who feel they have a right to control everyone’s life and deciding whether or not I can honor God in the way I choose while they worship the satanic cult of islam. Enough is enough…

    • Jeff@sea

      Zed, Bloomberg is an asshole because he’s an asshole – not because he’s Jewish. You’re limiting our scope here. Keep in mind that there are plenty of Jewish people who stand with us on this issue of gun control.

      On the issue of Jews, I think you’re dead wrong. The Jews are a remarkable race who overcame a history of oppression since the Middle Ages and rose above those troubles to produce a huge percentage of the world’s great scientists, philosophers, etc.

      Now that I’ve said that, let me say that, if anyone ever tried to FORCE you to change your opinion, I’d be on your side fighting them. Not to defend your opinion, but your right to have it.

      From what I can see, most of the trouble today is caused by officious do-gooders who want to tell us all what we have to think and what we can and can’t say. Who the f*** died and made them infallible?

      • chocopot

        Jeff -

        I agree with you all the way. As a Jew and a conservative who supports this website and the issues it supports, ZED’s foolish remarks offend and disappoint me. Bloombutt is a typical self-anointed elitist, fascist, tyrant wannabe, who has spent most of his life very wealthy, so he can choose to ignore most laws, which never seem to apply to the uber-wealthy. And like most of the uber-wealthy, he thinks he is smarter and better than everyone else so, while the rights guaranteed or granted to everyone by the Constitution apply to him, HE will pick and choose those which apply to you since he is our superior. Unfortunately, that is how our country has been run for far too long. That needs to change. As for the Second Amendment, there is no provision that indicates it can in any way be restricted or limited (which is exactly what the Founders intended), so technically, EVERY gun control law is unconstitutional.

  • dennis

    that little twerp from that toliet that is called new york, is the very reason the founding fathers included the right to bare arms, he would fit in with hitler, stalin and counteless other opressive leaders that have wanted complete control of the masses, if the ballot box can’t rid our country of oppression, then go to the bullet box, the founding fathers had it right in writing our constitution

      “if the ballot box can’t rid our country of oppression, then go to the bullet box, the founding fathers had it right in writing our constitution”

      There are 4 boxes in that set

      Soap box
      Ballot box
      Jury box
      Ammo box.

      They are listed in order of use. With the ballot box seriously damaged by voter fraud and lost military personnel votes and the Jury box severely damaged by the NDAA. and the Soap box threatened daily we are running low on options.

      None the less we most focus on using the first three boxes so as to avoid having to open the 4th box.

      • Jim

        The only good thing I can say is that Mr. Bloomburg is using his own money instead of doing what the democrats do and using public money to try to further their polical agenda. However I do not agree with any of his current agenda on guns or on food. Our right to bear arms and defend ourselves is a God given right afirmed in the bill of rights by our founders because they knew there would come a time when our own government would try to over reach just as King George had and for the same reasons. The food agenda is none of his business. His city has enough real problems that Mr. Blomburg need to busy himself with instead of putting up this smikescreen.

      When Government becomes destructive of the ends for which it was established, its is the right of the people to desolve such government and establish NEW government which shall seem to them most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

        Now the question comes that how could we take care of our hair? But before answering this question lets have a peek at some basic problems faced by our hair. Among the basic problems the most often notable are; hair fall, dandruff, hair breakage, roughening and tangling of hair, immature graying of hair, split ends, etc. All these problems have different solutions. And even some same problems have separate solutions, depending upon the type of hair and scalp. If we have a look around ourselves we will definitely notice many variety of hair types as well as different hairstyles. These different hair types have different hair problems and different solutions to the problems. Thus while taking care of the hair one must be aware of his hair type, and act accordingly. Without proper knowledge of the hair type any step regarding hare care may have adverse effect. It is evident a fact that the problem faced by a person with curly hair would be similar with that of a person with straight hair, and hence their solution would be different and would not be applicable to the other one.

      A traffic light is also an infringement on your freedom by the “we”. Who is protesting?

      Any gun restriction will fail in NY or NYC, the conversation about our attitudes towards guns, violence and our collective lack of responsibility towards guns needs to be addressed and dealt with on the national level.

      There are limits to the 2nd amendment just like there limits on the 1st amendment.

        Actually there are no limits implied or expressed in the 2nd amendment its is a very short amendment. It was put there as an absolute and as a warning to would be tyrants that American Citizens will remain armed period. And that we had that right and that it was not to be infringed upon. It was not or ever intended that we have our arms for defense (except to defend the republic as a free state) or for hunting (it would have stated so if it was) and that we could own arms equivalent to military standards at the time so nay infringement on this right IS AN INFRINGEMENT

          I plan on buying a hellfire drone for when my daughter goes on dates so I can “adjust” the attitude of her potential suitors if they try any “funny stuff”

          Since there are no limits to the 2nd Amendment.

          Since there are no limits either on the 1st amendment, you won’t mind if I photoshop you having “relations” with young children and posting them on all the websites I can? The 1st Amendment is every bit as clear as the 2nd Amendment.

          Sorry, John… There are limits. The founding fathers could never foresee the level of destruction we can now bring on each other or how much damage being able to say and show anything in any context can do.

          Relax, you can still get into a massive arguement with people living with you and they will be able to grab your handgun, rifle or shotgun and kill you and the rest of your family in a fit of rage in keeping with American tradition. Not to worry.

          Wayne LaPierre says enforce the existing laws yet:

          http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2013/02/07/nra-interferes-with-atf-operations/1894355/

          The NRA double talk strikes again. They have been actively undermining gun safety laws for decades.

          The NRA’s lawsuit against CA Assembly Bill 962, Parker v. California, didn’t challenge the validity of the language in the bill. Instead, it struck at the heart of California’s laws against minors purchasing ammunition and, more importantly, it undercut California’s long-standing ban on armor piercing bullets, the so-called cop killer bullets, recklessly putting officers at risk. These are bullets designed to penetrate protective vests.

          Joe Scarborough even knows what extremists the NRA has become.

          http://www.politico.com/blogs/joe-scarborough/2013/01/high-cost-of-the-nras-extremism-154295.html

          In 1995, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre wrote a fundraising letter describing federal agents as “jack-booted government thugs.” He added: “[I]n Clinton’s administration, if you have a badge, you have the government’s go-ahead to harass, intimidate, even murder law-abiding citizens.” Former President George H.W. Bush quit the NRA as a result

          In the fall of 2008, even before Obama was elected, firearms manufacturers and the NRA pushed a national fear-mongering campaign dubbed “Prepare for the Storm in 2008.” In the months that followed, historic amounts of ammunition and weapons were purchased by Americans who apparently feared that the NRA’s warning was valid.

          At a meeting of the Florida Conservative Political Action Conference in September 2011, LaPierre told his audience that even before his election, Obama was the leader of a secret “conspiracy” to impose gun control on America. “Our freedom is at risk in this election like never before,” LaPierre said. “The president will offer the Second Amendment lip service and hit the campaign trail saying he’s actually been good for the Second Amendment, but it’s a big, fat, stinkin’ lie, just like all the other lies that have come out of this corrupt administration.”

          It wasn’t only talk like this that was fouling the atmosphere. In 2005, the NRA began pushing the Florida “Stand Your Ground” law that is now at issue in the killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., in February. NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer, the group’s first female president, led the effort in that state, where she had great political influence. Law enforcement officials at the time decried the proposal, saying it would make it far harder to convict people of murder, but the NRA plunged ahead, ultimately winning passage of the law in that state.

          In the coming years, working with a right-wing group called the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the NRA was able to help push similar legislation to the point that more than 30 states now have reportedly adopted one form or another. According to the Washington Post, ALEC funders include the NRA and magnates David and Charles Koch, well-known funders of far-right causes.

          The legislator who nominally wrote Florida’s law has said that it did not cover someone following a “suspicious” person and then confronting him, as apparently happened in the Martin case. But many experts, including prominent law enforcement professionals, believe that Martin might be alive today — or, at least, his assailant would be facing criminal charges — were it not for the legal protection apparently extended to him under the Florida statute.

          Not that any of this matters to the NRA. Indeed, cravenly plunging ahead despite the tragedy of the Trayvon Martin killing, the group has lately been active in three states, pushing for the adoption of similar laws there. Folks in Iowa, Alaska and Minnesota take heed: The NRA’s coming your way, and it means you no good. And by the way, if you’re into a little Muslim-bashing along with your gun violence, you might want to make your way to St. Louis this Sunday. There are some people there who would be happy to oblige you.

          So much proof, so little space.

        • Dave

          BTW Don,

          I know you conservatives like throwing around big words you don’t understand but I am not a communist anymore than you are a fascist… wait, you are not a fascist are you?

          I am very much pro-America. I do not do not subscribe to your views. Your views got us the Iraq war, tax cut and spend, the dismantling of our manufactoring base and lover wages/increased credit card debt and huge Gov debt.

          If your views make you an American, then no thanks.

          I side with the Liberal record of ending slavery, getting SS, women the right to vote, medicare, environmental and safety regulations (Conservatives of their day opposed all of it)

          That is a better version of America in my view.

        • Don 2

          Dave,

          As expected, you dodged the actual question, and spit out your usual smokescreen of liberal jibberish in your feeble attempt to sidetrack the issue; all in all, a pretty pathetic performance on your part.

        • Don 2

          Really Dave, I asked for credible proof, not those repeating the WH talking points. USA Today, Politico, and Joe Scarborough are as biased as MSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and are no longer credible news outlets. They merely repeat whatever the WH tells them to. We are all aware that the latest Democrat talking points include trying to paint gun owners as extremists, just like Hitler painted the Jews as less than human.

          Blaming the NRA for foul-ups made by the BATFE is akin to blaming the Republicans for the disasters of Obamacare soon to befall the American people on 1/1/2014. By the way, the BATFE is a federal agency well-known for their bumbling antics such as ‘Fast & Furious’, raiding the wrong addresses, agents firearms discharging during school gun-safety training classes, etc.(Keystone Cops at the federal level).

          Trayvon Martin…..I wasn’t aware that this case had been heard by a jury yet. So, you’ve decided on your own that he was not the aggressor? Hmmmm. Typical lib.

          By the way, LaPierre is totally correct regarding Obama’s intentions regarding gun control. Only an idiot would still not smell a rat where Obama and private gun ownership is concerned.

          So Dave, you haven’t proven a thing here.

  • Chester

    Red neck, Bloomberg had his money and was doing his thing long before Obama came on the scene. With a bit of study, seems he came by his money the good, old-fashioned Republican way, by being bought out of a job, then going into business for himself with the proceeds from the buyout. He took a ten million dollar buyout and brought it to a current value well in excess of twenty-five Billion. He has been a democrat, a republican, and currently is an independent republican, so really hard to figure his politics other than whatever will get him what he wants.

    • john811c

      If there was such a party as the HYPOCRITE PARTY he would be a member of that seems he can’t find a party that truely expresses his agenda

    • coal miner 1

      Chester,
      I agree with you.Bloomberg is a scumbag.

    • Munnster

      I know that people are free to express their own opinions, but aren’t Bloomberg’s actions treasonous? Obviously, he hates the Constitution, so aren’t we as American’s supposed to defend our country against all enemies foreign and domestic? Shouldn’t he be tried for high crimes against the country?

  • Flashy

    Actually, there is ample historical precedent that the Rights of the “individual’ in the Bill of Rights may be infringed to allow other Rights to be maintained. i.e. cannot falsely yell “fire’ in a crowed theatre.

    The rule is the one being infringed has to be so minimally and only as far as to advance the goal of ceding necessary allowance to the other(s) involved.

    That being said…the SCOTUS has ruled sawed off shotguns etc are not within the purview of the 2nd. The assault rifle ban of the 90′s was outside the 2nd.

    How does universal background checks, ban on assault type rifles and limiting ammo clips infringe on any 2nd Amendment Right?

    That’s the entire point. the gun freaks say ANYTHING infringes upon the 2nd. However ridiculous that argument is….are all other rights secondary to that desire of maintaining testosterone highs and feed the insecurity issues ?

    • Walt

      “ample historical evidence” what garbage!

      First of all Flashy, the 2nd Amendment does NOT give Americans the RIGHT to bear arms.

      That particular right was declared a natural right by the Founders, not a right given by the State. The 2nd Amendment simply says that the State shall not infringe on that right given by our creator. Simple, yet profound.

      And, regarding your SCOTUS comments, the Supremes don’t have the legal right to hear, or rule on cases that modify or alter the Constitution. That can only be done by the States.

      http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/2009/06/22/the-judicial-power-of-the-federal-courts/

      Also, please read the following regarding the 2nd Amendment

      http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/category/2nd-amendment/

      I suggest you educate yourself first….then share your opinions.

      • Flashy

        “regarding your SCOTUS comments, the Supremes don’t have the legal right to hear, or rule on cases that modify or alter the Constitution. That can only be done by the States. ”

        OMG…another wacked out lunatic pretending he is fit to walk the streets without supervision. I call your attention to Marbury v Madison for one. Then let us go though our judicial history and where each state adhered to the rulings of the SCOTUS.

        Now..if you want to look like a raving lunatic bordering on complete idiocy and dispute the standing of the SCOTUS in our Constitutional review process, feel free.

      • Tommy cunningham

        Flashy, site the admendment changing the constitution that grants Supreme Court power to “interpret” bill of rights? Case law does in fact not change the constitution or its meaning as only the process thru art. 5 can change the constitution. Look up the definition of infringe ” shall not be infringe” in 2nd, don’t recall anything giving Supreme Court or any other part of goverment or state goverment the right for a “good” reason to infringe upon it. As far as states go, I believe the 10th states that if prohibited by constitution then not reserved to the States, 2nd clearly prohibits “ALL” goverments from infringing on right to KEEP and BEAR arms! Thomas Jefferson had it right when he said ” the beauty of the 2nd amendment is that it will not be needed till they try and take it.” I’m prepared to defend my right, not yours or the goverments to take or infringe upon!

      • Vicki

        Here’s a question for you Flashy. (I bet you won’t answer)

        What right of yours am I infringing on by my possessing and carrying a gun?

      • Flashy

        Tommy..the SCOTUS is given the role of interpreting the Consitution,what powers the government has, and what powers and Rights retained by the People. If you dispute that simple fact of our history…please step aside and let the folks who know reality and our history get along with our work of getting this nation back on track after being hamstrung by extremist and conservative polices imposed since 1981.

        Vicki…I answered this question you posed before. Again you ask? Didn’t get it the first few times i responded?

        OK…you ask “What right of yours am I infringing on by my possessing and carrying a gun?”

        Sure Vicki…how about my right as a non-gun owning citizen to my life, my liberty and the pursuit of my happiness? If my neighbors potentially have a hidden weapon on their person, do I have any recourse? How do I know that they even know how to properly use that gun or have the mental stability to own a weapon? How do I know that their gun won’t be inadvertently used to hurt or kill me the next time I’m in line at Starbucks and a cowboy or cowgirl feels threatened by whatever and decides to open up?

        What I do not get is the continued dogmatic, rabid, stubborn, unyielding, and ultimately selfish and deadly insistence by the NRA and folks of that ilk that their right to bear arms is untouchable. Sacred even. When it PLAINLY is not.

        Like it is a constitutional god to be so worshiped that any effort to regulate or limit that right is a civic sin. That this right trumps any and all other rights, any notion of community responsibility or moderation or logic or reason. That there should be no safety standards, educational standards, training standards before any loco can pack a gun around in public. ARE YOU ALL INSANE?

        My Right to walk the streets in safety knowing anyone packing a gun is properly trained, educated, and licensed as such for that particular firearm. The Right to safety knowing that there have been reasonable efforts and steps taken ensuring those owning dangerous weapons are responsible people without dangerous backgrounds or mental issues. .

        You may have a right to your gun. But I have a right as well, to live in a safe nation, a community not just safe from the “bad guys,” but also safe from the supposed “good guys” who still so love their guns and their “rights.”. I have rights..the ultimate ones recognized in our Declaration of Independence. The Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness…not just when given those rights by armed thugs walkin’ the streets thinking they’re the next Rambo…

          I guess Bloomberg doesn’t understand what a natural right to protect one self is. Or maybe having to pay for all those armed guards for his protection is costing so much of our tax money he is starting to feel guilty? Slap and sterilize this moron and the rest of this group, lets stop this B S here!!!!

    • red neck

      You are simply attempting to rationalize an assault on the liberties of the people. That is the same tactic that blooming idiot is using….. However you are dead wrong in your assessment…. The bill of rights and the constitution are set in place for INDIVIDUAL rights not collectivism or collective rights…. As with all nanny doctorial powers blooming idiot is saying “large sodas are bad” however large sodas are only bad for a minority of the population but since it is bad for some that means that he believes that he should have the power to control sodas for everyone.

      • Ed

        I would like to ask Major Bloomburg, who made you God over New Yorkers. What gives you the right to spend 12 million dollars of tax payers money for your own agenda. I just finished reading an article, involving the United States Government and Israel, where the U.S. Goverment paid the Israel government billions of dollars to subject 6000 foster children to lethal doses of radiation. 1000 died within weeks, while others suffered for years, under the ringworm project. Foster children have unwillingly been used to test a multitude of vaccines, (aids, smallpox to name a few). This is public record and anyone can look it up. I would not put it passed the Federal Government to have staged the mass shootings that have occurred to gain support to disarm the American public, just like Hilter, Stalin and various other dictatorial governments. More recent, why does the Department of Homeland security need weapons of war, unless it’s intent is to wage war against the American people. Why did our government build thousands of FEMA camps? The only conclusion one can draw to this fact, is that they will be used to imprison anyone who opposes the governmental acts and attempts to retain our constituional values. Americans need to understand that control of the population of America is underway and if they do not start questioning what is really going on, there will be no United States of America, because history does repeat itself. Stop importation of goods from China, Stop U.N. involvement, Stop hiding your head in the sand stop beliving governmental lies and get involved. Please!

        • Tommy cunningham

          Ed I disagree with what he believes, but the 12 million he spent was his own, not taxpayer money. I view it as a waste as no matter how much he spends or people debate, I’ll still not obey ANY laws that infringes on 2nd amendment , wasting their time debating as it won’t change my mind or get me to fall in line with the rest of the sheep!! No amount of debate or money spent on adds will convince me that I need to give up liberty for security. Just wanted to let u know its his money he’s wasting on a lost cause if his.

          • Ed

            Cause our oxygen is running out.
            I don’t know about anyone else but I getting DAM tired of the anyone telling me what I

            Tony, Common:

      Flashless, lib males should worry about their testosterone levels!

      Bloomberg is an obammie minion and his is only “an experiment.” What will people accept as limitations to their personal freedom? Give me a break, we are talking about “Diet Coke!” Not the most important problem in the country!

      If libs are so worried about “personnal responsiblity” they wouldn’t have nearly 50% of people on the “democratic plantation.” And, you libs can’t legislate “responsibility” when you have eliminated the responsibility of your government herd to take care of themselves.

      Make people responsible for their own halthcare and their own success and Bloombers’ imaginery problems would disappear. He wouldn’t have to worry about people becoming burdens on the “socialized healthcare system” that has been passed into law.

      People need to take care of themselves, in all but extraordinary circumstances. No one is entitled to anything they don’t work and procure for themselves…that is true freedom. But, those on the democratic plantation have given up their freedom and have become part of the government herd. Are they going to give up sugary drinks? No, because the people are NOT responsible for their own care. It will only happen if these drinks are made illegal and unavailable.

      The more personnal responsiblity the regime eliminates, the more problems they create for the Socialist State.

      Scotus has also ruled that a black man is property in dress Scott case, where does ur precedent go there flashy? Lol scotus is not givin power to interpret constitution in art 3, must be applied as written. Don’t see how a sawed off shot gun in my house is not protected by 2nd, very good home defense weapon.

      • ranger09

        Tommy, The people started losing their rights in the 30s when they allowed the govt to outlaw auto weapons and sawed off shotguns. But it only prevented the honest citizen from owning, Did not keep the criminals from owning these illegal weapons. Just as today the honest citizen suffers and the bad guys continue to have these weapons. Stand your ground boy,and defend your rights.

      Sole purpose of 2nd is to defend themselfs against tyranny by goverment, as Jefferson said, when the people fear the goverment then it must be tyranny, when the goverment fear the people it must be liberty. My right will not be infringed upon regardless of reason or how good some may think it is

    • securityman

It would be better if the opposers would plaster NYC with counter ads; bloomie wouldn’t know what to do if those ads began showing up everywhere–now that would be a sight to see!!

    • http://JWZ)(*&54321 JimZimmerman

      Fleshy just for your information you CAN yell fire in a crowded movie theater. There is no law or provision against it. It is considered protected speech under the first Amendment. If you do exercise this liberty and someone gets hurt or killed you can be prosecuted for the death or injury but not for exercising your right of free speech. And your Argument about Sawed off shotguns is invalidated by the Ruling of the SCOTUS Ruling of 1902 which has NEVER Been repealed H.R. 11654 aka The Dick Act of 1902 which makes ANY so-called `gun-control’ law illegal. So technically ANY gun control law INFRINGING on any right regarding firearms issued by the SCOTUS since that time can with enough time and money be argued including the ruling allowing EX Felons to be barred from owning firearms. And if the Police or National Guard are issued sawed offs than according to the 28th Amendment civilians would be LEGEALLY allowed to own them also. This Amendment has never been amended either. 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution, The militia of the National Guard of the United States, and all local, state, and federal law enforcement personnel operating within the United States of America and its territories, shall possess no weapons, ammunition, or related materials not also available to American civilians for legal purchase and private possession. If you don’t want guns don’t own them just stay out of OUR Business. Simple huh?

      • ranger09

        Jim, These people are already taking away our rights.

        • JimZimmerman

          Dave i hate to say it but persuent to the 28th amendment if the Militia or National Guard or police force of your community have an Abrahms tank then you can legally own one too. And as for the 1st Amendment yes you could photo shop the pictures you mentioned. As ugly as this is even Child Pornography is protected under the 1st Amendment. But if you Liable someone or cause them harm with your free Speech you can be held civilly responsible and be sue’d or brought up on criminal charges.

      - Flashy: “The SCOTUS has ruled sawed off shotguns etc are not within the purview of the 2nd.”

      What right of yours am I infringing on by my possessing and carrying a gun?

      • JimZimmerman

        Let him have it Vicky. He also needs to know that there are many amendments to the constitution and the 1st is free speech. The 2nd is the right to bear arms. This right was so important to our founders that they made it the 2nd of many. Flashy obviously failed Civics class or he would know that the SCOTUS doesnt have the authorization to change the constitution or add or repeal amendments. That can only be done thru a Constitutional convention combining both the House and Senate with a 2/3 Majority vote. If Flashy is so scared that everybody he meets should be armed then he needs to lock the door to his boycave. Chances are that at least 10% of the people he comes in contact with daily are armed and apparently no
        one has shot him yet. What a whimp. Stay strong Sic Semper Tyrannis. Semper-Fi.

I’m not whining, I’m telling u and anyone else I will not give up my liberty to you or any other human or goverment!

          Flashy,

          In case you weren’t aware — there are already laws in place! You can’t solve problems by adding yet more of the same or similar laws to the books. One of the best examples is our federal tax code — every time they close a “loop hole” the tax lawyers figure out another way to circimvent that law.

    Guns are a big part of the culture … When I think about it I can’t tell Americans to surrender their … That is the goal and with that goal is control. Total surrender.Stand your ground.

      New York City tyranny of Bloomberg makes me want to stay out of your city. Like Steve Miller’s song “Jetliner” stance lyrics- “don’t get caught up in some funky s… goin down in the city.” I’m a city boy, but a country boy in heart. Bloomberg can stay out of my fly zone. He be banned. P.B.

    Fleshy just for your information you CAN yell fire in a crowded movie theater. There is no case law or provision in civil proceedings precluding it. It is considered protected speech under the first Amendment. If you do exercise this liberty and someone gets hurt or killed you can be prosecuted for the death or injury but not for exercising your right of free speech. That is why Many women have been advise by Law enforcement to Yell fire when being attacked. And your Argument about Sawed off shotguns is invalidated by the Ruling of the SCOTUS Ruling of 1902 which has NEVER Been repealed H.R. 11654 aka The Dick Act of 1902 which makes ANY so-called `gun-control’ law illegal. So technically ANY gun control law INFRINGING on any right regarding firearms issued by the SCOTUS since that time can with enough time and money be argued including the ruling allowing EX Felons to be barred from owning firearms. And if the Police or National Guard are issued sawed offs than according to the 28th Amendment civilians would be LEGEALLY allowed to own them also. This Amendment has never been amended either. 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution, The militia of the National Guard of the United States, and all local, state, and federal law enforcement personnel operating within the United States of America and its territories, shall possess no weapons, ammunition, or related materials not also available to American civilians for legal purchase and private possession. If you don’t want guns don’t own them just stay out of OUR Business. Simple huh?

      But – like Bloomy – there are many people who believe they have the right to decide what YOU should do or not do. Take guns, for example. If I have a gun and do no harm with it, then obviously I am of no danger to anyone by having one. But if I shoot someone, then the government has the right to object in the defense of the person I shot.

      The problem is that too many people want to decide what is right and wrong for YOU. It is wrong for youi to drink a 36 oz. cold drink. It is right for them to decide this – for you. BUT … it is wrong for you to decide what might be right for them. After all, it is wrong for you to sign him into a mental hospital when it is obvious that he has a mental problem, for instance.

    The more Bloomberg opens his mouth, the more obvious it becomes that it’s time for this jackass to retire.
