Mayor Bloomberg says Americans should just acknowledge that big government knows best what’s good for them.

(Washington Times) – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said on Sunday: Sometimes government does know best. And in those cases, Americans should just cede their rights.

“I do think there are certain times we should infringe on your freedom,” Mr. Bloomberg said, during an appearance on NBC.

With that in mind, Mayor “Nanny State” Bloomberg is spending $12 million of his money to buy ads to promote universal registration of guns and other gun control legislation to further erode your right to keep and bear arms.

The good news is he’s buying these ads in pro-gun states, whose voters are likely to see through the statist message.  Even better, it’s likely to further energize those pro-gun residents into taking action to defend and protect their Constitutional rights from big-city, gun grabbing leftists like Bloomberg.

We say it’s none of government’s business what guns you’ve bought or possess any more than it’s government’s business who you voted for in the last election.

Meanwhile, in Florida, without Chicago-style gun control advocated by Mayor Bloomberg and his ilk, the gun violence rates continue to set new record LOWS as concealed weapon license numbers set record highs.


Florida firearm violence hits record low; concealed gun permits up

Scripps Howard News Service

NAPLES, FL – In the so-called Gunshine State, home to the most gun permits in the country, firearm violence has fallen to the lowest point on record.

As state and national legislators consider gun control laws in the wake of last month’s Connecticut school shooting, Florida finds itself in a gun violence depression. The firearm-involved violent crime rate has dropped 33 percent between 2007 and 2011, while the number of issued concealed weapons permits rose nearly 90 percent during that time, state records show.

It’s not rocket science, folks.

Gun control only increases violent crime.  Every time it’s tried.

  1. Government has no more business knowing who’s “permitted” to carry than it does knowing what guns people own.

    Whether crime rates go up or down this information is not germane to the point that the right to keep and bear arms – regardless of what crimes tend to show.

    When we adopt the “high capacity magazine” language instead of saying standard capacity, we are letting our opponents choose the terms and location of the battle. We should end this practice and start fighting back on our terms instead.

    Hey, I have the utmost of respect for what Lott did. He destroyed the antis longstanding claims with his work. I believe his work is the reason that Heller discounts the free standing interest balancing approach. We’ve won that fight so let’s accept that victory.

    We must reject the emotion arguments and that means not trying to employ them ourselves.
    Understand this- Chicago is about to explode as the defenseless figure out the carry ban is over. Progressives will point at increased shootings with a “we told you so” and wild Wild West claims of we were right about them. They will say “gun crime is rising because of carrying”. We all know its finally good guys shooting back but Chicago media won’t tell the truth about that. It’s far better to just tell the truth. It matters not if crime goes up or down. It’s irrelevant. We can never succeed if we are forever limited to “their” rules of engagement because they will ALWAYS move the goal posts.

  2. Gun violence in Illinois is minimal, but Chicago is at an all time high. Yet the mayor wants the rest of the state to pay fr their anti-gun agenda. Face reality people of Illinois that Chicago is not all that is suppose to control our state. All major political influence is controlled at the thug level by the Democratic party and is voted on a Chicago centered basis. Governor,senate majority,leaders of political houses,attorney general, and the rest are all from Chicago. I, as a down state person am sick and tired of supporting the Chicago regime and having them control my state and our future

  3. These cities have a gang/drug problem. Call it that rather than a gun violence problem.

    Not until they address and deal with the broken homes that lead to joining gangs that supply the drug demand will any type of violence go away.

    It’s simply a question of what’s the easiest method to earn a living with little to no education. Illegal activities carry higher risk, but also offer astronomical rewards.
