New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg slammed pro-gun advocates while encouraging America’s other mayors to pressure Congress to pass President Barack Obama’s gun-control proposals, during a lunch gathering of the U.S. Conference of Mayors on Friday.
“Most people I know don’t even have a gun,” Bloomberg said, claiming America is “the only industrialized country in the world” that has a gun “problem” where there are more guns than people.
What about his security detail? I would imagine they carry guns. Is the mayor not aware of this, or are they just not the sort of people he knows? What about the officers of the NYPD? I am sure many of them have guns.
I think that Mayor Bloomberg needs to get out of the bubble he is living in.
Also, I really don’t think that having more guns than people in America is actually a problem., at least not to the honest and law-abiding among us. If Bloomberg really wants a gun problem in this country than he should disarm every citizen and render us all helpless from the criminals.
