Bloomberg’s posse of gun-grabbing criminals

| November 24, 2012

Emily Miller, our favorite gun-rights journalist at the Washington Times, reports that the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) did a little research into the background of New York Mayor, Nanny Bloomberg, and his posse of gun-grabbing city government leaders in the Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG). They’ve found numerous felony convictions among those wolves in sheep’s clothing;

Among them are Gary Becker of Racine, Wisc., who was sentenced to three years in jail for felony child enticement and attempted sexual assault of a child. Detroit’s former mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, assaulted a police officer and perjured himself. Sheila Dixon, who hosted Mr. Bloomberg and his MAIG conference in her city of Baltimore, Md., was convicted while in office of perjury and embezzling funds.

Larry Langford of Birmingham, Ala., got 15 years in the big house for a staggering 60 counts of bribery, fraud, money laundering and tax evasion. The hypocrisy award goes to the late Frank Melton from Jackson, Miss., who violated his own city’s gun possession ordinances.

From SAF’s press release;

“In short,” [SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M.] Gottlieb explained, “many of these elitist politicians can no longer own firearms. The crimes they were convicted of suggest they are public enemies rather than public servants. No wonder they want to take guns from law-abiding citizens!”

“Perhaps Bloomberg should worry about background checks on his colleagues, rather than law-abiding gun owners,” he suggested.


“While Michael Bloomberg has been campaigning to turn gun owners into criminals,” Gottlieb said, “the criminals in his own ranks were engaged in such activities as tax evasion , extortion, accepting bribes, child pornography, trademark counterfeiting and perjury. One was even convicted of assaulting a police officer.

“And these people have the audacity to smear law-abiding gun owners as potential criminals, simply because they exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” he concluded. “He should pay more attention to what his friends are up to than worry about the gun owners he’s been trying to demonize.”

It’s no wonder that they want to disarm law-abiding citizens – they’re not leading law abiding citizens, but their own cabal of criminals who want to prey on a defenseless and complicit citizenry.

    Typical of the elitists: Don’t do as I do, do as I tell you.

    I really do believe all of our elected officials should lead by example. In this instance, that would mean no armed protection details whatsoever. Okay, who’ll be first?

  3. AW1 Tim says:

    Yup. I find it to be the utmost in hypocrisy that MAYOR Bloomberg insists on disarming the public, and decries private ownership of firearms, yet surrounds himself with armed bodyguards 24/7.

    Why this man, a MAYOR, gains such attention is a mystery to me. He’s a frikkin’ MAYOR, no more important, nor of more stature than any other MAYOR in these United States.

    Bloombergs always been a Schmuck.

    Every year, NYPD demands the 4473’s from Gun stores on Long Island to check for NYC residents purchasing guns. Now Nassau and Suffolk counties are not part of NYC so NYC has no right to look the Books over. But Bloomberg threatens them with City Lawyers, costly Lawsuits if they dont.

    God forbid you live in NYC and did buy a .22 NYPD will come to your address demanding said gun, even if said gun isnt stored within the 5 boroughs.

    A Bro I served in Baghdad with merely walked into a Nassau county gun shop to browse and 3 days later recieved a visit from NYPD in Flushing Queens home wanting to enter his house and check for guns. NYPD had the store staked out. Same with the Suffolk country rifle range @ Calverton. NYPD runs plates of vehicles parked looking for city residents.

    Oh by the Way, last week a Billionaire named Stewart Rahr pulled his revolver on a Elevator Operator. Rahr is buddies with NYPD’s Commissioner Ray Kelly and was with Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer that night. Rahr has/had a Full Carry Permit from NYPD.

    If you’re guaranteed the right via the 2nd amendment to protect your life why are protection squads necessary or legal? Shouldn’t these anti 2nd amendment turds be packing themselves and have to rely on their own action for their safety like everybody else?

    More shocking double standards from the libtard class.
