Bloomberg is and has been a thief and a crook all his life. Now that he is getting near the end he is trying to maker up for by embraces such causes . He is now as he has always been.
A dishonest phony.
Get a muzzle for the idiot that you have in the mayor's office.
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.

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.
Veni, Vidi, Velcro
I'd be up for a movement to just push Bloomberg down...preferably into a deep, dark hole.
"Historical examination of the right to bear arms, from English antecedents to the drafting of the Second Amendment, bears proof that the right to bear arms has consistently been, and should still be, construed as an individual right." -- U.S. District Judge Sam Cummings, Re: U.S. vs Emerson (1999)
They will be going against the American public with their campaign.
Most Americans back gun lobby, right to use deadly force - OrlandoSentinel.com
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.
Typical liberal hypocrite. He wants a nationwide ban on certain laws but opposes nationwide reciprocity on concealed carry.
Bloomberg and Sharpton both need to be overturned...for Real!!.
Bloomberg needs to mind his own business and let his city go to crap...i am glad that states can decide to make up their own minds...
On a side note, everytime i either hear or see Al Sharptons name my blood pressure rises...why anyone listens to that jagoff is beyond me...he needs a muzzle more than anyone
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.

Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791 and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."
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
