Bloomberg Wages War on NRA

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will spend $50 million to spread his gun-control agenda across the country with his newly formed group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced, with much fanfare, the formation of a new gun-control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, and his plans to spend $50 million in 2014 to wage war on the National Rifle Association. (In-depth coverage by NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox can be found in the upcoming June issues of the NRA's Official Journals, American RiflemanAmerican Hunter and America’s 1st Freedom.)

“They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’” Bloomberg said of the NRA in a New York Times feature. “‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’”

Of course, that’s hogwash. But make no mistake: Bloomberg truly believes he can win the gun control debate with his millions of dollars. Absurdly, he even thinks that most Americans are on his side. (Apparently he doesn’t get out of the big city much.)

Showing his arrogance and delusions of grandeur, Bloomberg said in an interview that, “I don’t know what your perception is of our reputation, and mine, the name Bloomberg around the country.” He continued, saying wherever he goes, people tell him, “‘You’re a rock star.’ People yelling out of cabs, ‘Hey, way to go!’”

In fact, Bloomberg seems to believe that, by taking on you, me and 5 million other law-abiding Americans who are proud to be NRA members, he is doing God’s work.

“I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in,” he said. “I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

Bloombutt forgot.... Mark 10:25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.' ..and isn't there something about the Cardinal Sin of 'Pride'...

Does Michael Bloomberg think that Americans can be 'bought' with his millions of dollars? Americans are Not for sale Bloomberg!!! I guess everyone has heard the story of the Marine, when he got to heaven, talking to ST Peter at the gates to heaven when the marine was telling St Peter what he had done with his life having to work on Sundays, not being able to go to church & having to kill people in doing his job. There is a lot more to it. Then St Peter tells the Marine to come on in to HEAVEN as he has already spent his time in Hell. Michael Bloomberg is not this Marine or any Marine that I have ever known as, like Obama, he is out of touch, has no idea what is really going on, OR how to fix the problems the USA is facing & what it is going thru!

Bloomberg is headed somewhere due south of heaven, he's earned it! Too bad he banned Big Gulps with lots of ice, they'd come in handy where he's going.

One has to wonder about the mental capacity of a wealthy man who launches a vicious campaign spending 50 million against an inanimate object such as a gun. Why don't you spend 50 million on mental health treatment Michael for people who injure and kill innocent children, and politicians who seem to have lost touch with reality!?
