My, Bloomberg is a nasty little bastard,

is he not?
At about three and a half minutes into the interview, Bloomberg told Schieffer, “We’ve got to make sure that the Congressmen understand the vast bulk of Americans want them to vote for sensible gun regulation, not control, not banning, just regulation.”
Yeah.  Because 'regulation' has NOTHING to do with 'control'.  Unless it's his regulations about, say soda, in order to control how much of it you drink, but that's entirely different.  Sure.

And, because Moms Wants Action is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bloomberg, more lying crap from his groups:
As Longdon sat waiting for her flight, a screen in the concourse showed footage of the press conference. A tall, thin man standing nearby stared at Longdon, then back at the screen. Then he walked up to Longdon and spat in her face. No one else blinked.
Longdon was shocked and embarrassed, she told me, but she didn’t falter. “Wow, aren’t you a big man,” she said as he turned and walked away. Instead of calling for security, she wheeled herself to a restroom to clean herself off. She was tired—she lives with constant physical pain—and didn’t want to miss her flight.
We are to believe that people who think kids should be suspended for wearing NRA shirts and eating Pop Tarts into the shape of a gun would just brush this aside? Sure, if it happened, that’s horrible, but you mean to tell me that there are no witnesses, no one to corroborate the story, no security footage? Haven’t we heard this before?
Go read for the full takedown of this.

And yet more Bloomberginess!
A mere 10 days after former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced his new anti-gun coalition Everytown for Gun Safety in the New York Times, former Pennsylvania Gov. and Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, one of the most prominent members of its advisory board, has resigned from the group.

No one should be surprised.

“When I signed on as an adviser to Everytown,” Ridge said, “I looked forward to a thoughtful and provocative discussion about the toll gun violence takes on Americans. After consultation with Everytown, I have decided that I am uncomfortable with their expected electoral work.”
What?  They weren't just wanting to deal with bad guys committing violence with firearms?  Whoda suspected such a thing...
If Bloomberg has revealed anything over the past few years, it’s that, despite lots of rhetoric about keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals, law-abiding gun owners are the true intended targets of his campaigns.

It’s for that reason that more than 160 mayors, according to a Washington Examiner report, deserted Mayors Against Illegal Guns — a 15% drop in mayor-members — after they realized they were misled.

Mayor after mayor, the accounts were the same.
And let us not forget THIS piece of idiocy:
In what was a particularly embarrassing moment for MAIG, the first stop on Bloomberg’s “No More Names” bus tour in 2013 had members read aloud a list of “victims of gun violence” since the Newtown school shooting. The list included Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, cop killer Christopher Dorner and a dozen other crime suspects killed by police or armed citizens acting in self-defense.
Because a rapist or robber or murderer killed by a cop or a citizen is a VICTIM!!! of gun violence.

Short version is that anyone who believes Bloomberg and CSGV and MWA actually give a rats ass about gun safety or 'stopping gun violence' is a fool.  Unless you consider 'Banning as many guns as possible from the commoners' to be working to stop violence.

Say it again: 'Gun control' isn't about guns, it's about control.

I have had a long standing challenge to bloomie and all the other hoplophobes out there: exactly which of the currently existing 20-25,000 gun laws are not 'reasonable' enough for you? Crickets so far................
IF those existing laws were being enforced (and even joebiden admits they aren't) perhaps those crimes committed with guns might be slowed, never totally eliminated since criminals will do what criminals do: break laws.
