    Bloomberg and his minions huff and puff and caterwaul to little avail. Few, if any, states will roll back stand your ground laws; especially in an election year.

    Mr Bloomberg is so strong for full ban on guns and 100% about gun control, my thoughts are he should move to one of the many countries that already have those type of laws in effect.

    Hell, he can move to Detroit or Oakland, CA, without his Security Detail, and whine like a baby over the crime rate. He would not stand out in the crowd at all, no?

    I only have one thing to say to his dishonor

    Μολὼν λαβέ

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I'd be up for a movement to just push Bloomberg down...preferably into a deep, dark hole.

    Bloomberg to push to overturn 'stand your ground' laws nationwide

    Mayor Bloomberg is launching a campaign to overturn "stand your ground" laws around the nation, such as the one in Florida that led to the controversial shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

    Bloomberg has scheduled a press conference this afternoon in Washington with the Rev. Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the National Urban League and other groups to announce the initiative.

    The billionaire mayor is expected to fund most -- if not all -- of the drive.

    A couple of weeks ago, the mayor's office rushed to sign up volunteer lawyers to compile a list of stand-your-ground laws -- described by Bloomberg as "shoot first" laws -- around the country.Most Americans support the right to use deadly force to protect themselves - even in public places - and have a favorable view of the National Rifle Association, the main gun-lobby group, a Reuters/Ipsos poll showed.

    However, there was also strong support from respondents for background checks as well as limiting the sale of automatic weapons and keeping guns out of churches, stores and workplaces.

    The online survey showed that 68 percent, or two out of three respondents, had a favorable opinion of the NRA, which starts its annual convention in St. Louis, Missouri, on Friday.

    Eighty-two percent of Republicans saw the gun lobbying group in a positive light as well as 55 percent of Democrats, findings that run counter to the perception of Democrats as anti-NRA.

    Most of the 1,922 people surveyed nationwide from April Monday through Thursday said they supported laws that allow Americans to use deadly force to protect themselves from danger in their own home or in a public place.

    "Americans do hold to this idea that people should be allowed to defend themselves and using deadly force is fine, in those circumstances," said pollster Chris Jackson. "In the theoretical ... there's a certain tolerance of vigilantism."

    The poll was conducted amid a nationwide debate over gun rights and race after the Florida shooting of an unarmed black teenager, Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood crime watch volunteer who is white and Hispanic.

    The poll results were welcomed by the NRA, which is one of the most powerful lobby groups in the country and regularly clashes with anti-gun groups and often with Democrats as it seeks to protect and expand gun rights across the United States.





    They will be going against the American public with their campaign.

    Typical liberal hypocrite. He wants a nationwide ban on certain laws but opposes nationwide reciprocity on concealed carry.

    Mayor Bloomberg and the "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" need to advocate Crime Control and not Gun Control. They need to discontinue attempting to make anti gun laws or abolish laws that benefit law abiding citizens when it comes to being able to defend their loved ones and themselves from the criminal element in our society.

    I'll start taking Bloomberg more seriously with his anti-gun rhetoric when he no longer has a security detail to protect him
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
