Never waste a good crisis! Exploit it before people come to their senses....
Bloomberg just needs to focus on NYC
If I had my own security detail and billions like Bloomberg then maybe I would be so flippant about self-defense laws.If He really cared about such as public safety He would fix New York City and let the rest of We The People protect ourselves.But remember to Him We are unrefined peasants.
When someone buys an election they assume they can do whatever they want.
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

The campaign aims to repeal or reform the laws that eliminated a person's duty to retreat when threatened with serious bodily harm or death. These laws have passed in 25 states.
Bloomberg said these laws undermine the integrity of the justice system, threaten public safety and make it more difficult to prosecute shooters.
The grassroots campaign will contact state legislators who have passed what he terms "shoot first" laws, produce education material for the public and create model legislation.

I hope he spends his fortune,all of it, for nothing.
Some people think that the whole world is no different than their own. They are very wrong.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

This guy is blinded by his money and ego. In the larger scheme of things it will mean nothing. Like one person said, I hope Bloomberg spends all his money "tilting at that windmill".

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
Never let an artificially-manufactured crisi go to waste.
How about that Superbowl ad he paid for? Powerful stuff.
"For someone who is nearly as smart as I am, how can you be so wrong about this?"
As some have mentioned already Bloomberg has his own armed 'stand your ground' body guards. He is one of those "don't do as I do, do as I say" people.
However full of hot air we think he is we can not let our guard down. He has the money to push what he seeks which makes him a danger to our 2nd amendment and state laws. Our battle is one that most likely will never end. We can never stop telling our government representatives that we do not ever want to give up our 2nd amendment rights or the right to defend ourselves.
Sadly tragedy's often happen. Will there be times when a shooting is ruled as not in self defense, of course there will. That is no reason we should throw out the baby with the bath water. People have too many drinks and kill someone with their vehicles, we still allow people to drive.
Mayor Bloombreg, the NAACP and the other groups that are pushing for a nationwide appeal of these laws are doing it for self serving purposes. Appealing of the laws would reverse the "even playing ground" law abiding citizens have gained over the criminals it recent years. The want to name the proposed law the "Trayvon Martin Law". A more appropriate name for the proposed law should be "Criminals Have no Fear No One Will Shoot Back and You Will Be Allowed to Cop a Plea to Serve Little Prison Time" Funny how so many anti gun laws (or proposed laws) protect the criminal element and subtly punish the law abiding citizens.

What a mess.....I think today I lost faith in our system due to the community lynch mob rule......I got a sick to my stomach feeling abt everything being played out today in the news....
The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
Bloomberg can suck my brass..
Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.
