MIKE BLOOMBERG: The Power Of The NRA ‘Is Vastly Overrated’

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Business Insider – by Grace Wyler

New York City Michael Bloomberg called for strong legislation to crack down on gun control Sunday, dismissing the power of the nation’s largest pro-gun lobbying group as “vastly overrated.”

“We’ve got to really question whether military-style weapons with big magazines belong on the streets of America in this day and age,” Bloomberg said during an interview on NBC’s Meet The Press. “Nobody questions the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms. But we don’t think the founding fathers had the idea that every man, woman and child could carry an assault weapon. And I think the president, through his leadership, could get a bill like that through Congress.”

“What’s the political cost?” Bloomberg added. “The NRA’s number one objective this time was to defeat Barack Obama for a second term. Last time I checked the election results, he won and he won comfortably. This myth that the NRA can destroy political careers is just not true.” 

His comments come as pressure grows for federal lawmakers to take action to prevent shootings like the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, which left 26 people dead, most of them children.

Bloomberg, who co-chairs Mayors Against Guns, has been one of the country’s most outspoken advocates for gun control. He chided Obama Friday for not exerting stronger leadership on the issue in his initial response to the Sandy Hook tragedy.

The New York Mayor doubled down on that criticism Sunday, saying that Obama should make gun control — and specifically a new federal ban on assault weapons — the first item on his legislative agenda next year.

“He’s the commander-in-chief as well as the consoler-in-chief,” Bloomberg said. “It’s time for the president, I think, to stand up and lead and tell this country what we should do — not go to Congress and say, ‘What do you guys want to do?’ This should be his number one agenda.” 

In his speech at a vigil for Sandy Hook victims Sunday night, Obama pledged to use the power of his office to take action to stop gun violence, but stopped short of offering any specific proposals.

    It is not the power of the NRA or GOA that the federal criminals and their supporters must go up against. It is the 300+ million US citizens, including active duty military, that the tyrants must face. If the scum want our guns I suggest they suit up and come try to take them. Crying and whining and writing on peices of paper and decalring unconstitutional laws will get them nowhere. Laws are meaningless without compliance and consent of those subjugated to the laws.

  2. Leita says:

    Would not put too much stock in what the incompetent Bloomberg has to
    say. While the people he was elected by were suffering from the devastation
    of Sandy and a hospital was being evacuated unnecessarily since truck
    size generators were available for its use and hording of water and food
    for personal gain, Bloomberg was busily planning for the Marathon.
    This is not a person but an entity.

  3. A Promise says:

    The power of the NRA is overrated.
    What is not overrated, however, are Americans, true patriotic Americans who seek out the truth and wish to expose Mayor Bloomberg for his history of white collar crime that his own personal history shows him to have conducted. Well known is the fact that Bloomberg amassed his fortune by selling “insider information” through his Bloomberg terminals which essentially related on the white collar crime of insider trading to front run the stock markets and create outsized profits for individuals who obtained access to his insider information. The damage to pension funds and other public stock funds was and is horrific.
    Also, Bloomberg took over the New York City (cite of the horrendous 911 attacks) mayoralty in January, 2002 from Rudolph Giuliani and proceeded to use his office to obstruct any criminal investigation into the upper end of the Zionist community who had facilitated and otherwise participated in the 911 crimes against American citizens and American society, which was used as the rationale for launching the fraudulent war on terror and bankrupting this country. It is quite logical and preliminary evidence has turned up that Bloomberg was actually installed as Mayor of New York precisely because he intended to (and did) use his office to thwart any investigation into the 911 criminally fraudulent mass murder and bring to justice those individuals who resided in New York City who participated in (financially, as well as strategically) the operations of Mossad (remember those dancing Israeli Mossad agents in New Jersey) and the CIA in carrying out the controlled demolition of the World Trade Center Towers.
    Before we even discuss taking guns from honest law abiding citizens in complete contravention of our highest laws (the United States constitution), we first call for an investigation of Michael Bloomberg and his role in obstructing the 911 investigations as Mayor of the City of New York during the periods of January, 2002 until present.

  4. Dave says:

    What’s vastly UNDERRATED is the resolve with which US gun owners will use to remain armed.
    I suggest that all Zionist Jews like Bloomberg, Feinstein, Boxer, Sanders, Levin, Wexler, Wasserman Schultz, Waxman, Lautenberg, Lowey, Harman & more focus on disarming the Israeli citizens whom they seem so dedicated to prior to taking our tools of defense from us Goyim (they call us “cattle”).
    Good luck on either job!

    • TranceAm says:

      Yeah, the new Founding Fathers & Mothers, but of a different kind it seems, trying to deform America into something new, Something where Personal Rights, Constitution don’t mean more then some vague museum thing.

  5. mark schumacher says:

    I think that owning more than 1 hundred million dollars is dangerous. Personal wealth should be limited to 1 hundred million only. What do you think about that Bloomberg? Money is more dangerous than guns .

    Fair argument Mr. Bloomberg?

  6. chris says:

    I am not part of the NRA, I don’t trust them, they have compromised when there should have been none. (they’ve seem to become a lobby for the gun industry and not the average shooter).

    That being said bloomy, you want my guns…. come take them. You’ll cheer on your jackboots as they march off to disarm the populace, hindsight is 20/20 bloomy and I can promise you when you’re hanging from the gallows your hindsight will be 20/20 or better.

    F*ck you bloomberg, nobody cares what you think.

  7. NC says:

    In the tone of Geico’s commercials on customer service,

    “Brace yourselves, folks. This one goes to 6 and a half minutes.”

    (music playing)

    “Yep, that was another 6 and a half minutes from Bloomberg, because, he can’t be happy until your defenseless.”

  8. NC says:

    “The murder rate in NYC has gone down every year.”

    BAHAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!!! What delusional world is Pee-Wee living in? Does he know where he lives?

    “If the killing of 20 children isn’t enough to change gun laws, then I don’t know what will.”

    He truly is living in his own fantasy world to think that we would all magically give up our guns because more people are being killed. There’s something truly twisted in his logic. Logic has it that MORE people will want more guns for protection if there are more killings. DUH!!!

    “You keep saying, ‘Control’. I think it is a bad word. How about ‘regulations’.”

    BAHAHAAHAHAAHA!!!! There we go again, changing the words to make it sound better. As #1NWOHatr always says, “Just call a spade a spade.” No need to change it, Pee-Wee.

    “Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a world where everyone says, ‘let’s just make sense about this. We don’t need to have assault weapons on the streets and in our city’.”

    Awwww……I think I feel a tear coming down my eye, now.

  9. Eomer says:

    Bring it Bloomberg! Gun & ammo sales are at record highs. I’ll say it again. Bring it on.

  10. Smilardog says:

    Well, you know what Mr Bloom-ass??? You don’t have the backing and support for this that you might think you do. My pastor just warned our church on Sunday about you and the rest of you gun grabbers. And guess what… Mr Bloom-ass? You are being exposed from the pulpits now and by name. We are not being told to be good little law abiding Christians and turn in our guns and obey the government. Surprise!, Surprise!, Surprise! We are being thought to fight evil and to resist tyranny until our Lord and Savior returns. Oh, that’s right… Our Constitution and Bill of Rights teaches us the same thing. Not only that, it says it is our duty, as well. Well, what do you know?

    Hey, Mr Bloom-ass and Mrs Turncoat Fienstien, If you check-out the early church history almost everyone of the Apostles and Christian disciples were arrested constantly for disobeying government. So, get a clue!!! They were willing to die for their beliefs, are the traitorous gun grabbers??? Wanna dance??? Or as Chucky would say “Wanna play???”

    So much for your theory you jackass Bloomblossom…its the drugs you idiot,and in many cases parents who now turn over their job to these same politicans and doctors who create these problems so we think we need them.

  12. Smilardog says:

    The people of the state of California and New York City need to start a recall on those traitors, and start criminal suit against them.

  13. flek says:

    Zionist Bloomberg understand that “We the People” are not overrated.

  14. Tanya says:

    The reason that “military-styled weapons:” belong in the hands of U.S.citizens and must not be banned by our government can be seen in the video footage of the coverage of the Sandy Hook killings. There are armed soldiers trotting around in the streets. Why? Who called them? What were they supposed to do when they got there?

    Here’s a massive crime scene, with ambulances and the law enforcement personnel all doing their jobs; what the hell are the soldiers doing there? What was their function? And who thought this was a good idea?

    The cabal that has seized the U.S. government would like to accustom us to the idea of militarizing the police force, since the president directly controls the military, but not the police force.

    How far do they mean to take this? If we are to see the answer to this question, we need to retain military-style weapons in the hands of U.S. citizens.

    • Large Scale Aggressor says:

      “Military-style” weapons. What the hell does this even mean? How can you even have a reasonable discussion of the issues when the fear mongers make up phrases like this? Are the .22LR rifles that look like ARs “military style?” Are semi-auto rifles with wood stocks like the Ruger mini-14 “military style?” How about a pink Hello Kitty AR-15 (google it, it’s really cute, I’m going to give one to my 10 year old granddaughter for Xmas, ….just kidding), is that “military style?”

  15. NC says:

    “He’s the commander-in-chief as well as the consoler-in-chief,” Bloomberg said. ”It’s time for the president, I think, to stand up and lead and tell this country what we should do — not go to Congress and say, ‘What do you guys want to do?’ This should be his number one agenda.”

    So in other words, you want the Obama to declare himself, “Dictator”.

    There! Was that so hard to say, Bloomy?

    This man has a billion dollars, 11 mansions and his own newspaper and he still can’t even tell it like it is.

    • mark schumacher says:


      This man is vying for something, probably votes for another term. Bloomberg is the type of guy that only has to utter a couple of words to drive you nuts. A sort of midget matzo ball, looking for a warm cup of soup.

      All he has to do is open his mouth to set me off.
