Stunner: Anti-Gun Nuts Obama and Bloomberg Use Zimmerman Verdict to Shamelessly Pimp Gun Control

Posted by on Jul 15, 2013 at 7:01 am

In case these morons aren’t aware, George Zimmerman is a law-abiding gun owner once again in possession of his weapon. But hey, why let facts interrupt when you’ve got an anti-Second Amendment agenda to pursue?

Mayor Bloomberg yesterday used the national fury over the verdict in the Trayvon Martin shooting to push his anti-gun agenda.

“One fact has long been crystal clear: ‘Shoot first’ laws, like those in Florida, can inspire dangerous vigilantism and protect those who act recklessly with guns,” Hizzoner said in a statement that avoided mention of race in the controversial case.

“Such laws, drafted by gun-lobby extremists in Washington, encourage deadly confrontations by enabling people to shoot first and argue ‘justifiable homicide’ later,” Bloomberg said.

How exactly were Florida laws drafted by so-called “extremists” in Washington? Bloomberg fails to explain this since he can’t.

City comptroller candidates Eliot Spitzer and Scott Stringer also blasted the Florida verdict that cleared neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in the unarmed teen’s death.

Stringer, at a Union Square rally denouncing the verdict, called the jury’s decision “madness.”

“It was sickening,” he said. “Being black and walking down the street is not a crime.”

Spitzer, the former governor and attorney general, called the verdict “a failure of justice.”

You know what’s also a failure of justice? That the former New York Governor was never prosecuted for transporting prostitutes across state line on the public dime. Obama, meanwhile, declared that honoring Trayvon Martin means pushing his failed gun agenda. Never let a “crisis” go to waste.

    Can somebody explain to me what a “shoot first” law is? The facts of the case seemed to indicate this was a “sucker punch/ground and pound first” case and the shooting was actually secondary to the assault by a 17 year old black kid who felt “disrespected”.

    “Being black and walking down the street is not a crime.”

    Neither is being a member of a neighborhood watch committee (oh, yeah, huh?), but being any color AT ALL and beating someone else down into the sidewalk IS a crime, and Martin paid the price for committing that crime. Maybe the next young “youth of undetermined origin” who decides to try and beat down the neighborhood watch might remember to just keep walking down that street instead…

    So why should I care what a city comptroller candidate thinks about a criminal trial on the other side of the country?
