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

    Apparently there will be a press conference this afternoon in Washington D.C. with the Rev. Al Sharpton, the NAACP, the National Urban League and other groups

    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.

    UPDATE ARTICLE Below, more detail = 'You must submit to all criminals that attack you'


    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.

    Since when was "Mayor" a national office? Why doesn't he spend his time and money trying to fix his City and leave the rest of the country to more intelligent, more reasonable people.

    Well, he thinks he is responsible for killing HR-822 so now he has a case of the "big me-little you" syndrome.
    I would imagine he will be showing up all over trying to keep his anti-gun machine rolling.
    What a buffoon.

    That's the liberal mentality...if they don't like something or don't want something then they think no one else should like it or be able to have it.

    Oh the sweet irony of this liberal yankee hypocrite. These people make me SICK SICK SICK

    rewind a couple of years.....

    LePaul Gammons, man shot by Mayor Bloomberg's body guard, to sue for $5 million - New York Daily News

    The unarmed man shot by Mayor Bloomberg's bodyguard in a fight over a woman says he was threatened at gunpoint by the elite officer before and cops took no action.

    Now he's planning to sue the city for $5 million.

    LePaul Gammons said it was Valentine's Day 2007 when Detective Leopold McLean drew a handgun while off duty and told him "he didn't have a problem with shooting me."

    Gammons called 911 to report the threat and ended up arrested himself for harassing ex-girlfriend Assia Winfield, a beautiful aerobics instructor who was dating McLean.
    he is well protected with all of his bodyguards, so who cares about the peasants

    I can't say for certain but I have this feeling that the legislature and the governor here in Texas are not going to be too impressed.

    Anyone remember this awesome event to protest Bloomberg a few years ago?

    "Bloomberg Gun Giveaway" Draws Crowd - CBS News

    This was my favorite line from the article.

    "Anybody who showed up at Thursday's event was eligible for the drawing except Bloomberg and his immediate family, who were explicitly excluded from the contest by VCDL organizers."

    People like bloomberg, menino, and daley really give me a feel about the real IQ of the voters in their areas. It makes me laugh it is so pathetic that all of these people allow these hypocritical rich "tyrants" pull the wool over their eyes and deny them the same rights and perks they themselves cannot do without, and this goes way beyond the 2A...... I feel sad for these voters, then I realize it is their blind stupidity that makes them subjects with a false sense of security.

    I dislike calling Bloomberg a 'buffoon'...that is an insult to 'buffoons' everywhere.

    Thank goodness that all of NYC's problems are solved to the extent that there are no longer problems or issues significant enough that warrants Bloomberg's attention, freeing him of his local responsibilities so that he can take care of the rest of us in the other 49 states.

    Now I can finally sleep at nights knowing I'm in good hands. Thank you Sir Bloomberg.
    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    Bloomberg must think he is a Czar or something,Texas will tell bloomberg and the Feds to go pound sand,in fact the Feds try to over reach their powers and you will see States starting to secede and actually take the Constitution at face value
