Mike Bloomberg Calls For Ban On Assault Weapons

Tyler Durden's picture


In the least unexpected news of the week, Mayor Mike, whose forays into central planning started with banning sugary sodas, and then proceeded to gas rationing, has just done what everyone expected him to do, and demand a ban on all assault weapons:


We eagerly await the imminent escalation: the "taxable inhalable oxygen for those making over $250,000 - it's only fair act" to be proposed by Mayor Mike and his central-planning enamored brethren in D.C. next.

From AP:

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and dozens of shooting survivors and victims' relatives are calling on Congress and President Barack Obama to tighten gun laws and enforcement.


The mayor was appearing at City Hall Monday with 34 people whose own lives or the lives of their relatives have been affected by gun violence around the country. They're sending videos to lawmakers telling their stories.


Bloomberg has long been an advocate for tougher national gun regulations. He has found himself at the forefront of a re-energized push for gun control since Friday's massacre at a Connecticut elementary school.


He says the carnage "demands immediate national action."

You do know that whenever gun restrictions are seriously talked about, gun sales go way up, which means gun maker stocks will do the same.

So take advantage of the situation...

Stocks?... Are you fucking kidding me???... So you want me to play the jew game & play a jew rigged stock market to make me some joobux?...


Hell ~ All I can really think about in the moment is Feinstein, Bloomberg, & Company getting Mossad to handle the confiscation of guns in America [whereby tey can distribute them like candy to some towelheads which will then be used to stir up some conflict that the 'survivors' of the elementary school shooting will be called on to go fight some yet to be named war in the future so the Jews can continue their land grab]...

"to prohibit the citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm, except upon his own premises or when on a journey traveling through the country with baggage, or when acting as or in aid of an officer, is an unwarranted restriction upon his constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of a constitutional privilege."

Perhaps your gun totin' monkey brain can't wrap itself around the idea that ALL postures can be correct at the same time...


1. Until someone convinces me that the megalithic coincidence that I find in jews having their fingerprints all over just about everything that gets discussed on ZH every day laments about [which, whether it be wars, poverty, inequality, or anything ~ FACE IT ~ it's all about MONEY]... When someone can realistically tell me that jews have nothing to do with it... OR... That it can instead be blamed on:

- Trekkies

- NASCAR fans

- Ladies Sewing Circles

- Stamp Collectors

- Birders

- Zumba Enthusiasts

- or, francis_sawyer himself, or all my legion of cult followers

Then, well, I'm going to continue to my original thought (you know ~ until someone comes up with a better argument... I've eliminated the Muslims because 'Sharia Law' does not permit usury)

2. At the same time... I actually DO LIKE TO SEE PEOPLE SQUIRM... (Which they inevitably do ~ because when the false facade of their imaginary world gets knocked down [which, by & by, is imaginary because they have been PROGRAMMED to only consider themselves 'civilized' if they don't slander jews in any way ~ it goes all the way back to the first time they watched 'Ben-Hur' or 'The Ten Commandments' on TV])

3. So yes... I'M FUNNIN'... But I'M DEAD SERIOUS as well... (because the only way to get thru this fucking bastard world which is constantly in danger of being hijacked by limp dicked special interests ~ is through HUMOR)


I hope you can handle that

Actually it only have to do with selling across state lines.   There are gun manufacturers that are not following federal law as they will not transport across state lines.  

If you have an "assault weapon", of course that is made up as well, you can keep whatever you have.   The federal government is just trying to interfering by the way of the commerce clause.   No, they can't tell you turn in your guns. 

Your rights come from God, not the United States, or the People or the Constitution.   And no, they can't amend the Constitution and change it either as the rights of the people to bear arms came before the United States even existed and the People can't give the U.S. power from which it never had.

Assuming any legislation on this gets passed, yes. I was absolutely shocked when I saw a Feinstein interview this weekend where she indicated things would be grandfathered. Presumably she's not repeating her mistake of the 60 minutes interview during the run-up to the '94 ban. (If you don't remember, she advocated a full ban, and was asked if that meant weapons that were already held by the public, and she said "Turn them in.") That doesn't mean they won't try, however, I think she's just being sneakier about it.

I do think it speaks volumes to the change in the political landscape that she's letting that go publicly, though.

FWIW, there's been a rumor floating around for a couple months that BATFE was exploring redesignating semi-autos as destructive devices to trigger all that happy recordkeeping. This would be consistent with the adminstrations exo-legistaltive approach to "law."

The federal government has no authority to order you to turn in your guns, they can ask you.   The assault weapons ban is basically manufacturing and then moving them across state lines (generally).   

The right to bear arms comes from God, not the Constitution, even the Supreme Court says so.

"Unfortunately most states - especially those called Blue States due to their Liberal-leanings - continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns.

At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein (D-CA), who are carrying concealed weapons, according to WABC Radio's Mark Levin."

I say we just ban BLOOMBERG. Period!

But perhaps we can reach a compromise. If all celebrities that want to ban guns of any kind would agree to living without ANY armed security 24/7, then perhaps we could reach some agreement. But BLOOMBERG and his cadre of collectivist cronies must agree to fall on their swords and live without protection for a year or two first, just to PROVE that their ideas are valid! It would be open season on tyrants for that year or two.

I doubt the Dictator of New York would agree to that!

so sure?  i guess it depends on what it means to be Jewish....  Check out (Israeli) Gilad Atzmon's book, "The Wondering Who"...   its not racial, as several different racial types call themselves "Jewish".  Nor is it religious, as there are many atheist Jews...    finally, the British Royal family, and much of the "royalty" throughout europe claim to descend from King David.  Interestingly, most U.S. presidents are related to the Windsors...   the point being, "Jewish" is a loaded term...  under some definitions, most U.S. presidents were Jewish.   truth is stranger than fiction.

Exactly...  even seemingly intelligent people (anecdotally) misuse the term "assault weapon"...  In the context, it means an assault rifle...  which is fully automatic... and has nothing to do with the semi automatic firearms demonized by the "assault" word...  in other words, we demonize the term and then move, over time, what weapons are covered by the demonized term.

In short, assault weapons are already virtually nonexistent in private hands (cost too much).  So why do you need to ban them?

macho man - i disagree. an assault weapon is generally a rifle intended for assault, but needn't necessarily be fully automatic. i assaulted many people using a belgian fn fal which didn't have an automatic fire option as my employers were thrifty. essentially, if you can't kill someone using two or three rounds then you need to up your game. also fully auto wears out barrels in a hurry. i think what tptb have against "assault" weapons is their large magazine capacity especially if they are taped together rambo style. for my own record, in perhaps 200 contacts in central africa in the late 70s i never used more than half a magazine (10 rounds). but most shots accounted for someone.

I'm guessing you're not an american...  so there has been something lost in translation...  "assault weapon" is a term of art...  meaning, you cannot break it down into the common usage of its component words.  If you did, then conceivably anything could be an assault weapon if it was used to assault someone...  "these fists are assault weapons, hold my beer"

Just for completeness there is a real distinction in what is meant by assault rifle vs. a battle rifle (DMR) and out to sniper rifle.  Granted - the American public has no clue this exists nor that an M4 has a 14.5" barrel (which is not readily available to a US consumer) and a select fire/auto/burst mode (not available at all to US consumer except for pre-1986 M16 models at close to $20K).

Armed task force to patrol streets Police chief says citizens could be subject to ID checks

"[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck," Stovall said. "If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."

Stovall said while some people may be offended by the actions of his department, they should not be.

"We're going to do it to everybody," he said. "Criminals don't like being talked to."

Gaskill backed Stovall's proposed actions during Thursday's town hall.

"They may not be doing anything but walking their dog," he said. "But they're going to have to prove it."

Stovall said task force members would not even be required to be looking for a specific suspect before stopping citizens on the street.

"Anyone that's out walking, because of the crime and the fear factor, [could be stopped]," he said.

Should an individual not produce identification, Stovall said his officers would not back down. Individuals who do not produce identification when asked could be charged with obstructing a governmental operation, according to Stovall.

"I'm hoping we don't run across [any] of that," Stovall said. "Will there be people who buck us? There may be. But we have a right to be doing what we're doing. We have a zero-tolerance. We are prepared to throw your hind-end in jail, OK? We're not going to take a lot of flack."

May we see your papers?". The idea that you had to justify who you were and where you were struck at the very heart of my childish notion of freedom.

"Oh say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"

Well, the flag still flies, and there are lots of brave Americans, but I think on the middle part, the USA's pretty much punted.

Mayor Bloomberg is leading the charge to take away guns in the wake of the Newtown child murders. The pressure is on.


Apart from grandstanding, which Bloomberg knows how to do, this is all about deflection from the main event: the killer himself.


Last night, I watched network coverage, wherein, of course, the anchors were in Newtown, standing on the street, “trying to make sense of the whole thing.”


If they’re so interested, along with the public, in figuring out why Adam Lanza killed all those children, you would think, with their enormous resources, they would find out who Lanza’s doctor-psychiatrist was in five minutes and ask him about his patient.


Of course, that’s sacred ground. Patient-doctor confidentiality.


Except the patient is dead.


So much for the networks wanting to know who Adam Lanza really was. It’s all a sham. They just want to keep asking the question over and over, pretending to be in the dark about the whole thing.

And “out of respect for the victims,” the drug companies aren’t running ads anywhere near this media coverage. *** Translation: the companies don’t want to encourage the public to make the connection between meds and murder.***


Blots: good points made by J.R.
