    Bloomberg Misunderstood or Mis-quoted

    The quote below is from a Fox News story. I think he was mis-quoted.

    "For too long, the only voice that has been loud enough to influence Congress has been the Washington gun lobby's -- that's how we've ended up with ineffective gun laws that have fueled our country's gun violence epidemic," Bloomberg said in a statement.
    Understanding how a misguided left wing socialist progressive mind works; one can see what he REALLY meant to say.

    "For too long, the only voice that has been loud enough to influence congress has been the non thinking, illogical, emotional knee jerk reaction politicians
    with the help of a President who intimidates and flies in the face of constitutional law. -- that's how we've ended up with ineffective policies & laws that continually erode the rights of all Americans that have fueled our country's slide into the depths of moral decay, anti patriotic behavior, wasteful spending and a overall destruction of everything that made this country great"


    I think that is what he really meant to say.

    So, in the qoute Bloomberg is saying that our donations to the NRA is being effecive and they are doing what they are paid to do.


    Or

    Are you saying that the NRA is not heard and our money is not being used for anything?

    I have no idea what your poiint is.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    Bloomberg is one of the very few people I hate. I would not pee on him if he was on fire.

    Bloomberg is neither misunderstood or misquoted, only "misguided."

    Q: If Congress has only been under the influence of the NRA, Bloomers, then over the past 40yrs where did all the firearms-related statutes come from?

    A: LEFT field, obviously.


    And this isn't about "gun" laws. It's about crime prevention. Why, O! why, hasn't crime prevention worked over that time period? Because it hasn't been the focus. Duh.

    Funny, but prohibitions against murder, robbery, rape, kidnapping and all the rest would be sufficient, if only those statutes would be heavily, uncompromisingly, always executed to the fullest extent of the People's wishes, instead of subverted to within and inch of their lives (the statutes).

    Armed citizens being capable of effectively defending against the violent felons in our midst would be sufficient, if only they weren't criminalized at every turn, criminalized for what they're carrying or possess, criminalized for what it's feared they might do (if only they'd magically turn into criminals by virtue of such possession).

    Removal of the most violent from our midst would be a sufficient deterrent for them, if only they'd be removed permanently. Weakening the punishment from an absolute surety to the point of the statutory joke that it has become hasn't worked well, in that regard.

    Gee, perhaps we should simply erase the parole system, plea bargain system, options for getting out for "good behavior," releasing violent folks because there's not enough room, and all the rest. A simpler, stronger 5/10/Gone penalty system for violent crimes couldn't hurt, either. Those two simple changes can't hardly be worse than the farce we've got now.

    Being an 85th degree blackbelt in sarcasm myself, I followed it perfectly.

    The only reason he has an audience is because he is Mayor of NYC. The only reason he is Mayor of NYC is because he has $30B (yes, billion).

    Do you ever wonder how these politicians, the vast majority of which are in office because they spent the most money, can truly be "a government of the people?" People with hundreds of millions or billions of dollars really have no connection with "the people."

    He is another politician that should be on death row for attempting to dismantle the constitution he swore to uphold, AKA treason.

    Treason....again? What about any politician that has voted yes on any gun legislation such as banning automatic weapons, supporting mandatory training to get a CHL or CCP, voting to have to get a CHL or CCP to carry a weapon, supporting legislation requiring a NICS check when purchasing a weapon from an FFL,

    Just curious where treason begins because IMO all of the above are against the 2A. What about the forum memebers here (expecially the ones still on active duty ) and ex military that swore an oath but support certain things like those mentioned above? Should they be tried with treason since I do not think the FOunding Fathers would have approved of any of the things I mentioned above?
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”

    Treason begins when we move from honest debate to political subterfuge and open tyranny, IMHO.

    An honest discussion based on facts is at the heart of American republicanism. If our society is given all of the facts in an honest way and then decides to pass laws, then we must all make our own decisions on how far we will go. However, it is treason to manipulate the facts and/or assume tyrannical authority to impose one's own beliefs on others.

    Well put. if a bit inaccurate... "However, it is despotic to manipulate the facts and/or assume tyrannical authority to impose one's own beliefs on others."

    Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

    The Treason Clause applies only to disloyal acts committed during times of war. Acts of dis-loyalty during peacetime are not considered treasonous under the Constitution. Source: treason legal definition of treason. treason synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.

    It could be worse!
