    One of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s top gun-control lobbyists in Colorado appears to enjoy firing the very guns he is working to restrict.

    Denver-based Headwaters Strategies lobbyist Adam Eichberg participated at a “watermelon shoot” in September 2012 at the farm of Colorado state Sen. Greg Brophy (R.) where he fired a semi-automatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine.

    .........Bloomberg’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, hired Headwater Strategies in January to lobby for several gun-control bills under consideration by the Colorado legislature. Those bills would ban the future sale, transfer, or manufacture of so-called high-capacity magazines in the state.

    The Colorado-based company Magpul produces the high-capacity magazine Eichberg used, which would be banned under one proposed Colorado bill. Magpul has threatened to leave the state if the bill passes.

    One of the youngsters here who knows how to send pics w/emails should send Bloomberg pics of his lobbyist buddy shooting watermelons. Perhaps he'll have a massive coronary and keel over.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    What we need is for those "headwaters" they're all toying with to rise to extreme flood stage, overflowing the banks, such that it sweeps all the liberty-hating, anti-Constitution freaks right into the sea. May we all rise up until their voices are no longer heard in our halls of power.

    Remember, in Tyranny, it is about YOU not having those freedoms, not about THEM not having those freedoms.

    They will retain their weapons legally while you are disarmed, because they consider themselves elite, while you are naught but lowly peons....

    But that is ok for them. They love disarmed serfs.

    Using hypocrite and elitist in the same sentence is clear redundancy.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    They will all either retain ownership of "banned" weapons or they will employ bodyguards who carry these weapons. There is more than one way to spell HYPOCRITE.

    Is that the same guy that he showed the enlarged picture of .... during the hearings ...... LMAO .... now that is funny. Now I understand "who" was in that picture and his comments make a LOT more sense now. He keep pointing out the guy's "smiling face" and that he was using a "20 rd mag".

    From the above referenced article:

    "Brophy said it was not just Eichberg who wanted to pop off a few rounds at immobile melon targets. Democratic Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper also asked to be invited to the melon shoot, he said.

    “To top it all off, a week after we did the watermelon shoot this last year, the governor was out in eastern Colorado doing a bike tour,” Brophy said. “And the governor comes to my house on Friday night and practically begs to come to my melon shoot next year. A few months later he’s in contact with Bloomberg’s group and planning gun-control measures in Colorado.”

    Hickenlooper’s office did not return requests for comment."



    Like I said in a previous post, there is more than one way to spell HYPOCRITE.
