The tiny tyrant is completely out of control. His own city, not to mention Chicago, cities with the strongest possible gun laws on the books, are experiencing crime surges recently, so obviously the weapon of choice–and not the criminals–are to blame. So reflexively, like may other leftists, he uses the Colorado shootings as a pretense to go after gun owners once again.
And does this idiot suggest? How about having police walk off the job? As if that would magically prompt the criminals to lay down their arms and live in harmony.
Mayor Bloomberg ramped up his gun-control rhetoric to a whole new level last night, saying he’s surprised cops don’t walk off their jobs until the public forces lawmakers to get guns off the streets.“I don’t understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe,’’ he told CNN’s Piers Morgan.
Earlier in the day, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie snidely suggested that Hizzoner has been using the victims of the Colorado movie massacre as “political pawns.”
“Can we at least get through the initial grief and tragedy for these families before we start making them political pawns?” said Christie, whose name has been floated as a possible veep candidate for one of Bloomberg’s targets, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
“I am a little bit disturbed by the politicians who in the immediate aftermath of this type of tragedy try to grandstand on it, and I’m not going to be one of those people,” Christie said.
