Bloomberg shows his hand on his Gun Laws if he's President

Recommended Posts

He was at a rally in CO earlier, and this is his plan (not surprising)....

Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg unveiled a gun control policy on Thursday just steps from the site of one of Colorado’s worst mass shootings, calling for a ban on all assault weapons, mandatory permits for gun purchasers and a new position in the White House to coordinate gun violence prevention.

The policies Bloomberg outlined Thursday largely mirror those he fought for on the state and federal levels in recent years, though it’s the first time he’s released his specific prescription for gun violence as a presidential candidate.

Among the highlights, Bloomberg’s plan would:

-- Reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.

-- Require every gun buyer to obtain a permit before making a purchase.

-- Require point-of-sale background checks on all gun purchases while closing the gun show loophole.

-- Institute a new age limit of 21 for those wishing to buy handguns, semi-automatic rifles and shotguns.

-- Require a mandatory 48-hour waiting period for all gun purchases.

-- Institute a federal “red flag” law to deny permits to “troubled people who pose a danger to themselves or others.”

-- Institute a temporary ban on gun possession for those convicted of assault or other violent misdemeanors.

-- Ban all guns in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, except for law enforcement.

-- Reverse the law that gives gun makers and gun dealers immunity from lawsuits.

-- Create the position of White House gun coordinator “to mobilize the public to fight gun violence and launch an inter-agency hub to fight gun violence.”

The only surprise is that it isn’t worse

Confiscation will start after he's elected. He's smarter than Beto.

He has only one job in this election.

Bring the party candidates to a more central position.

He will not nor does not want to win.

Do NOT get lost in the woods!

I believe you are correct.    Bloomberg's entry into the race,  The phony impeachment which is designed to sideline warren and sanders are all a play to open up the nomination for hillary clinton.       Its time for AG Barr to reopen the clinton e-mail crimes and lock her up!

The sad part is that there will be gun owners throughout the U.S. who vote for him believing that he will not take away their trap guns or turkey guns.  after all nobody needs an AR-15 with a 100 clip action to hunt.

BTW, and speaking of FUDDS,  have any of the candidates dressed up in hunting clothes yet pretending to be 2A supporters and heading out into the fields chasing some upland birds?

What really burns me about Bloomberg is he is such a $(%&^)#$ hypocrite on guns.

Here's an example of the security detail he traveled with when he was mayor:
 


He apparently loves being in Berumuda at his house there - it was an issue when he was mayor, how much time he actually spent in NYC vs. Bermuda.

He apparently obtained special permission for his security detail to be armed in Bermuda when most police there do not have firearms:

Quote

... The mayor also takes along a police detail when he travels, flying two officers on his private plane and paying as much as $400 a night to put them up at a hotel near his house; the city pays their wages while they are there, as it does whether Mr. Bloomberg is New York or not. Guns are largely forbidden in Bermuda — even most police officers do not use them — but the mayor’s guards have special permission to carry weapons. A spokesman for the Police Department declined to comment. ...

Oh you are wrong. He is definitely in it to win it. You are just confused by the fact that he doesn't have to be president to have won. 

He want's power and influence. He wants to have more of it than anyone else. That's his goal. 

He's running so that he'll either be president, or that he will be the guy steering the democratic party. He's fine with either. 

Right now in the DNC there's a fight between the hillary branch and obama branch of the DNC. More accurately team hillary controls hillary's donors and team obama controls obama's donors, they don't necessarily have much if anything to do with the personal opinions of either hillary or obama.  There's nobody big enough in the party to make these two factions play nicely together and nobody charismatic enough to do it either. Which is why we have all this neo-marxist leftism getting big air time. It's trying to buy influence with sound bites instead of dollars. Intended or not, this is making a lot of the people providing the money on both those lists hesitant to continue donating money. Bloomberg has money. There's a power vacuum right now.  He'll be the president or he'll be the new Soros.

Funny tidbit about Bloomberg.  Years ago, I used to work for his competition in the newswire business.  His main campus is not far from the Princeton area.  Many college grads were thrilled to get hired there as it was a good paying job.  They would enthuse about getting free lunch provided to them each day, not realizing until later that this was intended to keep them yoked to their desks all day and not waste time going out for lunch.  lol!  The whip cracked early and often.

If you want to see what Bloomberg's plans for gun owners are, just look at VA. They got bought and paid for by him and are floating everything he asked for. That shit didn't come out of nowhere.

Bingo! And Bloomberg just stated after the Texas church shooting that civilians shouldn't have guns in public. Only the police and military.

This link is encouraging.  Bloomberg has spent $200 million already on advertising, not counting his paid campaign staff which I believe is over 300 employees.  He’s promised to spend a billion or more on his campaign. He’s not campaigning in the early polling states-Iowa, NH, etc-instead going all-in on the Super Tuesday states when the largest number of delegates will be selected, just 8 weeks from now  

So what is this laser-like focus and potential billion dollar investment likely to buy him?

Polls today indicate that he is on track to pick up exactly ZERO delegates on Super Tuesday

    • Business to Business gifts mostly but really anything you've ever seen with a company name and logo on it.   We used to make all of it here, now we just finish it here or do some final assembly.  Some things, like many paper items can be sourced locally, but most of the items that have plastic components are injection molded in China and to a lesser degree Thailand or Malaysia.  
    • My point was, typically, business cycles are like 6 - 8 years, before a reset. Of course, that's not set in stone, and it depends on the underlying economic conditions. But, many of the underlying conditions that have negative affects on the economy, have been there for the last few years, but the cycle continues... I talk to all my financial guys, and they all say we're way past due for a major correction, and it's coming, but no one knew when that would be. None of them think the underlying conditions are healthy, most of it doesn't make any financial sense, so they just shrug their shoulders, and say let's make money while we can. It may appear to you, and other MAGA people, that the overall economics have been strong, but the patient has been kept alive by "life support" of artificially low rates, and a defibrillator (monetary games). Remember, the FED lowered rates 3 times last Fall, to "juice" the market. That DOESN'T happen in a "healthy" economy and market. It just maybe, that someone just pulled those plugs...
    • I started reloading in the 60's with my dad. I always enjoyed reloading with him. He thought it was a great way to save money on hunting loads. We were loading paper shells back then, with waxed and fiber wads. Times evolved, and prices went up. In 1995 I was still reloading shotshells for $.10/round with components bought at the local gunshops whenever I stopped in for a visit. When components were everywhere, it never dawned on me to buy in bulk.   Then things changed. Primers became scarce, lead shot became scarce and the new precious metal, gunpowder became hard to find, etc. Local gunshops stopped carrying wads, powder, and soon all reloading components and accessories, etc.  But I still reload 12, 16 & 20 gauges. I can tailor and make any load in any combination that I want. That's why I do it.  Cheap factory shells today are cheap for a reason. Brass washed steel bases instead of brass are tough on chambers and reloading equipment. The low antimony shot they use often make for inferior patterns. Unless you opt for a quality plastic shell, most of the cheap shells are also inferior to reload with. Are the cheaper factory loads okay for impromptu hand-thrown clay bird sessions? Sure they are. Can you hunt with them? Sure you can. Can you break clays from the 16 yard trap line or Station 4 on a skeet field; of course you can. Then again, no Olympic shooter that I know of is using factory Remington Gun Club's today.   If you don't hunt, are only an occasional shooter, don't have a need to make 2 1/2" shells for your old doubles, don't have a need to roll 3/4 oz. 20 ga. loads to save money, don't have a need for 7/8 oz. 12 ga practice loads, don't have a need to make your own buckshot loads or don't have a need to make a heavy 16 ga. pheasant load; then it may not make much sense to reload.  Wakeman's take on quality shells is a good read:  https://www.chuckhawks.com/good_shotgun_shell.html    
    • I would argue that periods of time where growth stalls or retracts are caused by bad economic policy not just a cyclical foregone conclusion.  Prior to the 80s and back to the great depression the recessions in growth where a few to 5 or 6 years apart. Horses have four legs but everything with four legs isn’t a horse.  It may be that policy swings and resulting consumer sentiment has cycled with a 5 to 10 year period.  But that doesn’t mean the period doesn’t change or that its not possible to go much longer periods of time without a contracting economy. Don’t know.  I’m not a financial analyst. I’m a technologist. Want me to look it up?
    • OK, so what event caused the down turn in the Fall of 2018, when the market fell like 4000 points?
