NRA Ad Introduces America to ‘Elitist Hypocrite’ Michael Bloomberg
Submitted by: Anonymous

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"Earlier this year, Michael Bloomberg laid out his master plan for destroying the NRA, promising to spend $50 million to defeat pro-gun candidates in the midterms. Now the gun-rights organization is firing back with an ad campaign that offers the rest of the country a crash course in the former mayor's war on things that are delicious, fun, and unhealthy. In the commercial, which will air nationally, a woman driving a red Chevy pickup describes Bloomberg as a 'billionaire, elitist hypocrite' who wants to 'ban your snack food, your soda, and most of all, your gun.' She concludes by telling him to 'Keep your politics in New York, and keep your hands off our guns.'" ...

"More Americans can carry guns in more places than ever before. In the majority of states, law-abiding gun owners can walk into bars, restaurants and churches with their guns without fear of legal ramifications."

"A review by News 21 of public-carry laws ... shows that gun owners are now allowed to pack a gun in a public place in all 50 states."

"The laws vary considerably from state to state. ... Local governments in some states also have tighter restrictions on where guns can be carried."

"But overall, the numbers show that the ability of Americans to carry their guns with them has steadily expanded since the 1960s ... Today, for example, no states prohibit concealed carry, down from 19 in 1981." ...

... "Members of the grand jury will be under tremendous social and political pressure to indict. The state’s own governor has, incredibly, called for 'vigorous prosecution.' Damn shame he didn’t have the integrity to call for 'vigorous investigation' instead. One should not be convicted before trial in the Governor’s Mansion instead of in a courtroom."

"Late yesterday, the Public Disclosure Commission’s website revealed a $500,000 contribution by Seattle billionaire Paul Allen to the Initiative 594 campaign, and the Seattle Times – which still imposes an apparent new blackout on law enforcement’s opposition to the 18-page gun control measure – quickly reported the development, which bodes ill for gun owners across the country." ...

"You may remember Theresa Vail as Miss Kansas 2013, the first Miss America contestant to display tattoos during the swimsuit competition. The comely Army vet didn’t take the title, but she made a whole lot of friends with her outspoken views on sexual harassment and unabashed love of hunting. Leave it to the Italians ... to capitalize on the Sunflower Staters shotgun stylings. Franchi is sponsoring Vail’s new Outdoor Channel reality show Limitless with Theresa Vail (due in 2015) and adding her to the brand’s prostaff team. 'I’m beyond excited,' said Vail in a press release (after the jump). And so she should be. She’ll be winging all over the world on Franchi’s dime to shoot exotic and dangerous game with a $1k Franchi Intensity 12-gauge. Glamor. Guns. Good! . . ." ...

"Robert recently posted an article on a question posed to a guest by CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer:"
"'On Thursday, CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked guest [lawyer] Jeffrey Toobin why police weren’t instructed to 'shoot to injure, instead of kill,' talkingpointsmemo.com reports. 'Blitzer’s questions arose during a discussion on the unfurling conflict in Ferguson, Mo. over the fatal police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown. 'They often shoot to kill,' Blitzer said of police. 'Why do they have to shoot to kill? Why can’t they shoot a warning shot in the air, scare someone off if they think they’re in danger. Why can’t they shoot to, injure, shall we say? ...'"

"Billionaire Michael R. Bloomberg could learn a thing or two from the biblical story about an Israelite soldier named David, who went up against Goliath, a giant of a man and a powerful foe. Using just a sling and a stone, David brought Goliath down to his knees and destroyed him."

"Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, made a huge political miscalculation when he sauntered into my territory of Milwaukee County, Wis. — a solid-blue county that overwhelmingly votes Democrat — expecting an easy signature win for his failing crusade to disarm law-abiding Americans." ...

"In the Aug. 11 letter to the editor headlined, “Confiscating guns is first step to deny our freedom,” the writer falsely claims that Michael Bloomberg and his gun violence prevention organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, support gun confiscation. This statement is completely unfounded, and so is the writer’s inaccurate statement that the organization is 'anti-gun.'"

"Everytown, which encompasses Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, supports the Second Amendment and responsible gun ownership. In fact, many of its members are gun owners. ..." ...

"I always carry an extra magazine in my left front pocket. Problems? I can’t put anything else in the pocket, and I’ve got a LOT of clobber to carry ... Also, the sharp bottom end of the mag tears a hole in my pants pocket. So I really like the look of the SNAGMAG. It uses the same pocket snagging system that makes my Emerson wave knife the fastest opening knife on planet earth. We’ve already reviewed it, and Nick seemed to like it, so I’m agitating to get one for myself as well Meanwhile, I found Ultimate Concealed Carry’s Prayer on their website. Which I’ll share with you (afta da jump). Do you say a prayer when you tool-up? I do. I pray that I won’t have to use my firearm. But God knows I’m ready if I have to . . ." ...

"Guns are great. They just are. They’re valuable tools in a pinch, and they need to be there when you need them. In your home, it’s great to keep one or more guns handy, and it’s wise to keep them out of sight. Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot more furniture that functions and looks like “regular” furniture while doubling as a hiding place for firearms."

"Concealing guns in this way is a good idea for a number of reasons. ..." ...

"There’s this idea – a myth really – that local policing used to be low-key, even-handed and, well, friendly. While we’re busy deploring the current pace, scope and scale of current police militarization, it’s important to realize that law enforcement officials have been on the wrong side of the battle to defend and extend our natural, civil and Constitutionally protected rights for many, many years. (Birmingham Sheriff Eugene “Bull” Connor’s treatment of civil rights protestors springs to mind.) Not all cops. Maybe not even most of them. But enough of them that I feel fully justified highlighting the threat as and when it appears. ..."

"On a pleasant Saturday this summer, Eric Holder, his daughters, their boyfriends and two security officers boarded a government-owned Gulfstream and jetted off to New York for the Belmont Stakes Thoroughbred horse race." ...

"That one day trip to Elmont, N.Y. on June 7, according to records provided to TheDC by the Department of Justice, ended up costing the government $14,440."

"But Holder only had to reimburse the government $955 for flying him and four passengers to the final leg of the Triple Crown horse races that day."

"That’s because he only has to pay the equivalent cost of a coach commercial airline ticket for each non-law enforcement passenger ..." ...

"The sudden exit of George Maziarz from the 62nd Senate District race has ramped up the role that the New York SAFE Act is expected to play as Robert Ortt and Johnny Destino campaign to capture Maziarz's seat."

"The SAFE Act ... came on the heels of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newton Connecticut that occurred December 14, 2012."

"If nothing else the law's passage proved that the governor and legislature could work to pass sweeping legislation when they want to. Unfortunately the very fact that it was written so fast and passed with virtually zero debate only served to create suspicion ..."

In most states, people who have been convicted of domestic abuse or who are facing charges of it cannot possess firearms. In some states, police are authorized to seize weapons from the home."

"Not here. The Second Amendment seems to hold more weight in South Carolina than the Sixth Commandment: Thou shalt not kill."
