    Mayor Blomberg slams White House on gun control: report
    POST WIRE SERVICES

    President Obama is under the gun when it comes to Mayor Bloomberg and his crusade against illegal weapons.

    Bloomberg, generally considered a White House ally, put Obama on notice after he fired off a letter to the White House this month where he reportedly accused the president of dragging his feet when it comes to gun control, according to a report today.

    In the March 3 letter sent from Bloomberg's coalition, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the mayor points to a separate report the group sent the Obama administration last August, which laid out 40 recommendations to "improve enforcement of existing gun laws," according to The Huffington Post.

    The letter was co-signed by Boston Mayor Tom Menino.

    "We appreciate the ... consideration of the report, but this is an urgent matter: further delay will almost certainly result in the needless loss of innocent lives, including many children. Mr. President, the time has come for action," the mayors wrote, according to the letter obtained by The Huffington Post.

    The White House did not immediately have a comment in regards to the letter.

    Bloomberg has been an ardent fighter for gun control, blaming illegal handguns smuggled into New York State for shootings that take place in the city. He has also taken on the National Rifle Association in the past.

    "Over the past six months, approximately 6,000 Americans have been gunned down in intentional acts of violence. The 40 recommendations in our Blueprint, many of which could be enacted immediately, offer the best hope we have for making our country safer over the next six months -- and the years ahead."

    The Huffington Post report comes after the city conducted a sting operation last year where it caught unlicensed gun dealers selling weapons to undercover investigators who admitted they couldn't pass background checks.

    The stings were conducted at seven gun shows in Tennessee, Ohio and Nevada. Those states are among the many that permit private unlicensed dealers, known as "occasional sellers," to sell weapons at gun shows without conducting background checks.

    Nine states, including New York, have passed laws to close the loophole, requiring background checks on at least all handgun purchases at gun shows.

    Because like most politicians, guns are fine in the hands of those who are protecting them and there families.

    While the rest of us are SOL.

    Recommendation No. 41 ATF should require billionaire spoiled brat mental midget mayors to grow a set and shut their whiney pie holes.

    Note to Bloomie - Gun shows are what makes the violent crime rate so high in NYC? Maybe it's your insanely restrictive CCW laws! Idiot!


    Quotes from the brain trust:

    “One good place to start would be to enforce the laws
    that are on the books right now.”
    – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, February 26, 2009

    “We want to enforce the laws that we have on the books.”
    – Attorney General Eric Holder, Congressional testimony, May 14, 2009

    Hmmmm. What a novel idea. How about the 2nd Ammendment? Haven't figured out how to line your pockets on that one yet? November 2nd is coming. Greedy jerks.
    I know what you're thinking: "Did he fire six shots or only five?" "Is that a Smith & Wesson 686+ 7 shot or 627 8 shot?" "Does he have a concealed Sig P226 SCT and two spare mags?" You've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

    New York City's crime rate actually isn't that high. Not that that has anything to do with Bloomberg's idiocy.

    You are missing the real meaning of those quotes, not to mention the thunderous silence from the White House regarding Bloomberg's tantrum. The White House and Democratic leadership are telling Bloomie and anyone who is listening this: "Gun control, whether we want it or not, is poison for our party. Crime is down, the nation as a whole is not calling for it, and we don't feel like giving the Republicans a running start as they try to push us off the cliff."

    This story is hilarious. Bloomberg is obsessed. He can't grasp that the issue is largely dead on the national stage. He's lost. We won. As with any war, there will be brush fires that will pop up here and there, but the tide has turned so far from his side that only his self importance and insular existence in NYC keep him from realizing it.

    If they would allow the NYC citizenry to arm themselves, their problem would decrease on it's own.

    That's total garbage.... they are trying to prevent "people" from being able to do private sales .... period !!! I have had an on-going discussion with my Senator that can't get that there are NO "unlicensed" dealers at gun shows around here.... they are referring to "individuals" who are doing a private sale.
    Their proposal of course, gets right into registration of all firearms and absolutey no private fact-to-face sales of firearms.

    The ATF raids and stings , were more to make a 'point' for the Brady Bunch and Bloomberg... in other words, due to political pressure. They've been to them around here and had no luck finding anyone doing anything illegal... gee, what a surprise that 99.999 % of gun owners are law abiding.

    Of course, you won't see that hit the newspapers. The ATF performed some stings, and found "nothing illegal going on ".

    So give us our select fire weapons back since its a violation of our 2a and we are law abiding anyways.

    Didn't he also run a "sting" in other states like WV or VA? Didn't several states say if he does it again, he will be arrested?

    I dont get it. He wants illegal guns outlawed? Aren't they already illegal? This isnt even addressing the rights issue. Guess I am just to simple to understand.

    I am getting concerned now that Obama has "time to focus" on other things!

    First we have Bloomberg "Demanding more gun-control action" from Obama and also today, the headlines were "Mexican Officials Demand US Gun Control"!

    All this "demanding" happening on the same day sounds suspiciously like a coordinated effort. It will be interesting watching who else comes out of the woodwork tomorrow demanding action against US citizens exercising their 2nd Amendment rights!

    Stay vigilant!

    In the words of The Great One, Mark Levin, I say this to Mayor ShroomBerg:

    "GET OFF THE PHONE YOU BIG DOPE!"

    Shouldn't His Dishonor be assembling the Salt Police and arresting people for Salt Over Use.

    When are New Yorkers going to wake up and smell the damn coffee?

    The greatest day in my life will be when I move from this Left Wing Lunatic State.

    Just my 2 Cents
