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:

  • MAYOR BLOOMBERG CALLS FOR ENFORCEABLE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN
  • MAYOR BLOOMBERG CALLS FOR PASSING GUNS CHECK ACT
  • MAYOR BLOOMBERG CALLS FOR MAKING GUN TRAFFICKING A FELONY
  • MAYORS AGAINST ILLEGAL GUNS TO SEND VIDEO STATEMENTS TO CONGRESS

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."

Think Bloomberg is alone on this?... Fellow jew Feinstein is all over this like fucking white on kosher rice... [Don't worry peeps ~ when they come for your guns, they'll hire Mossad to be in charge of the operation so that all the guns get humanely destroyed in an orderly fashion]...

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."

Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, 34 Am. Rep. 52 (1878).

Dude, everytime you put "jew" into your comments you de-legitimize any arguement you are trying to convey. If you are that fucking committed to being anti-semitic then why don't you just go to the west bank and strap yourself onto a bomb make your point and be done with it.

No ~ I'm not 'trolling' anybody... I'm voicing my opinion on the subject... Is that still allowed in America?... I'll tell you what I'm NOT doing...

- I'm NOT warming up any ovens

- I'm NOT spraypainting swastikas on synagogues

- I'm CERTAINLY not strapping on bombs & doing what YOU suggest (nor would advise anyone else to)

I'd rather hit 'em where it REALLY hurts

- I don't watch their television

- I don't vote for their political candidates

- I don't put my money in their banks

- I don't BORROW MONEY from them

@fuu

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

Would that include the assault weapons our government provides to Mexican drug cartels? Does it mean that governmental agencies also give up/destroy their assault weapons (why would they need them if the populace doesn't have them)?

Why does not Mike demand a gun-control in Israel? Oh well, his beloved Zionist-fascist friends in Israel will have problems killing all these under-human unarmed Arabs both Muslims and Christians.

Now, Zionist Bloomberg wants to disarm and enslave Americans without fearing retribution.

Yeah, fuck the hurricane survivors, a documented mental patient stole a rifle and shot up a school. (unable to deal with two tasks simultaneously, great leadership there).

Then you have to ban all assault video games as well. Adios game companies.

Then what? what are the welfare collectors going to do without their Call of Duty?? No more Mortal Combat? Halo?

Where will it stop?  LOL.

 

I vote to ban all news coming from north of the Mason Dixon.

Better yet, how about a Bloomberg ban altogether? After all, it's nearly impossible to name a single other person who is currently doing as much direct damage to lives of so many others. Even outside of his "jurisdiction."

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."

These Fascist understand, know and are the aware the jig is up.  The American People understand the whole Global Criminal Synicate of Govenmemts and officials are GUILTY!

Their whole economic system is based on Criminal CIA/Intelligence Fraud, Espionage, Bribery, Extortion, Racketering, False Flags and Murder.  The Criminals are running scared.  The goal is to disarm The American People and institute the NWO of a Global Fascist Corporate Bankster Authoritarian Police State World Government.

No mention of Mossad?

~~~

See?... Part of the problem, people, is that there has been a long & ongoing operation to MISDIRECT the backlash when folks finally become aware of what the hell has been going on for a long time...

Therefore:

- It's not the poor lovable Jews, it's the 'Zionists' (or the ashkenazis)...

- It's not Mossad, it's the lily white CIA [It's James Bond & Felix Lightner]...

- It's not 'joobux' that are stealing your wealth, it's those funny 'clownbux' or BennyBux' (where NOBODY is at fault ~ it's just a silly random happening)...

Heaven forbid the arrow ever hits the bullseye...
