    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

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."

Fuck you you motherfucking fuck...

You know... 100 years from now (hopefully after things get better, but probably not before the whole world goes to shit, every last freedom has been taken & every last penny of wealth has been stolen & finally masses of people wake up to the idea they've been duped)... Some wise old stories will be told...

& the people (in that new century), will not even be able to comprehend WHAT A BUNCH OF STUPID FUCKS that lost generation must have been to let themselves get 'suckered in' the way they did... So now I think I'll go grab a chisel & a hammer & etch your name into the face of some rock wall and say...

Peeps ~ it was because of VAST-DUMB and his moronically idiotic blindness that he & his friends displayed even when the facts were staring them straight in their moronic faces [they musta missed it because they were off watching Woody Allen movies & watching network TV news]...

MAYOR BLOOMBERG CALLS FOR ENFORCEABLE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN

I prefer a ban on Dumb-Ass politicians. 

Wonder how Gas-Bag Mike feels about Predator Drones?

Obama sure hates guns in the hands of the citizenry.  Too bad for Pakistani and Afghani children he doesn’t feel the same way about Hellfire Missiles raining death and destruction from Predator Drones.  Wonder who is he gonna whack today?

The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.

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!

Why would you need those kind of guns?

If you have a militairy background: okay
If your a gun ho freak who buys those guns like other people collect silver coins: no

and kids? why would you let your kids handle guns? assault guns that is!

In my experience, old people (people who are more likely to be familiar with the term 'apoplexy', apparently an outdated term relating to strokes -wikipedia) tend to be more bigoted than the general population.  Also, get off your vocabulary high horse if you dont know the difference between your and you're.

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?
