Bloomberg Tries to Defend Using Armed Guards While Pushing Gun Control

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

An attendee at the March 2, 2020, Fox News town hall asked Mike Bloomberg why he pushes gun control for the common man but surrounds himself with armed security.

The attendee said, “You have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines you seek to ban the common citizen from owning. Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s?”

Bloomberg responded by admitting to having an armed detail, and suggesting he needs armed protection because he gets more threats than the common man.

On February 3, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Bloomberg enjoyed armed security even as he campaigned on a platform of gun control for the common man.

The New York Post reported on Bloomberg referring to the NYPD as his “own army,” while Mayor of New York City. And on January 25, 2019, NRA-ILA reported that after his tenure as mayor ended, “Bloomberg hired some of the same  [NYPD] officers from his security detail to work for him privately.” Yet he continued to push gun control for average Americans.

In 2017 Fox News’ sTucker Carlson pointed to the hypocrisy of Bloomberg’s actions:

So Bloomberg is campaigning on gun control for the common man but availing himself of good guys with guns for self-protection.

  1. Anyone that believes that lying S.O.B is as dumb as a box of rocks. He’s part of a certain ethnic group that wants to control everything!

    1. You right, Daman. It’s not about gun control, it’s about CONTROL…absolute control of you, me, us…all of us. This comes from a guy born under Communism, in Eastern-Europe.

  2. Answer the question.
    Oh and if I buy a gun online I can’t mail it anywhere. It has to go to an ffl(gun store) and the infringement of a background check is done.
    Eat sh!t and die. I hope some wack a doodle out.

    1. I hop he trips on a 32 OZ super big gulp
      And drowns when he falls in it

      Lord knows he’d need a stool to reach the straw

      I really don’t know why he’s so scared
      No one shoots that low

  3. He says it’s because he gets more threats than anyone else because he’s a politician.

    I’m sorry but that doesn’t answer the question as to why WE can’t be armed but he can AND that’s basically admitting that his life is more important than yours or mine.

    So I’m curious, is he saying that WE don’t get threats on our lives everyday? Is he saying that if WE get a lot of threats on our lives, then it’s ok?

    What about the cops that threaten our lives everyday? How come we can’t be armed? That’s a lot of people threatening us.

    Also, if you’re getting so many threats on your life everyday, then maybe you should re-think what it is that is making people want to threaten you.

    Whoops! That would mean a Jew would actually have to think like a human being and admit to the evil and wrong-doings that he is committing on a daily basis. However, as we all know, that’s just not possible.

    1. NC, he knows, I know, hope you know that the 2nd Amendment is NOT as much about protecting us from daily threats, but against a tyrannical government. Nothing more, nothing less. ” When the people fear their government, there is tyranny, when the government fears the people, there is liberty ” – Jefferson. They – the Zionists, are afraid that the day of reckoning will come, sooner than later…because we are armed. Without guns, people are just sheeple/cattle in their way to the slaughter house…

  4. The 2nd Amendment and over 300 million guns ( and billion of ammo ) is what stands in their ( Zionists ) way, for a total, complete Global conquest. The day when ‘ they ‘ ( the Zionists ) will do what they did to many other countries ( UK, Canada, Australia and recently New Zealand ) to us, HERE, will be game over for humanity, not only for USA. That ‘ boot stamping on a human face – forever ‘, like George Orwell said it ( ‘ 1984 ‘ )…’ if you want a vision of the future…’…

  5. Bloomberg is another traitor to the RATIFIED LAW that will be tried and convicted of treason and sedition.
