Bloomberg and Gun Control

Blog Post

As the meme suggests, it might be useful for people who would lead us to consider that we’re not all like THEM.
Bloomie seriously feels as if he’s not qualified to own and operate a firearm safely. And while I am inclined to agree with his self-assessment, it doesn’t apply to most people, who are capable of receiving training and who are conscientious enough to practice their skillsets.
His lack of confidence has no bering on the law of the land. Let him hire an army of bodyguards. Let him construct a wall and other barriers around his mansions. We don’t mind. We understand that when you had $60 billion (before losing $10 billion in the coronavirus market crash) that you want to protect it from those who would take it. 
People like Michael Bloomberg, who is physically weak and fearful, claims to trust the integrity of government to protect him. If that is the case, why not furlough the bodyguard army? Why not disarm the security measures? Tear down the walls. Live like everyone else, dependent on a swift police response after the crisis strikes.

  1. "Individually, we do not bear arms because we are afraid. We bear arms as a declaration of capacity. An armed man can cope – either in the city or in the wilderness – and because he is armed, he is not afraid.

    The hoplophobe fears and, yes, hates us, because we are not afraid. We are overwhelmingly "other" than he, and in a way that emphasizes his afflictions."

  2. Cooper (Gunsight isn't far from where I live), God rest his soul, knew of what he spoke and wrote. We all shoot our handguns differently thanks to him.

  3. Americans Adapt. We Improvise. The most ferocious fighting machine the world has ever seen is a 19-year-old pissed off Marine. Because you'll take that kid from Detroit or Mississippi and you'll train him in Marine Corps boot camp, and you'll put him in a situation that's foreign to him, and he will adapt and improvise and become that situation and deal with it.

  4. Bloomberg is used to people obeying him, because he pays their salary. Or because he can leverage a threat against them.
    It will come as a shock to him that about half this country still earns their own money, and is not inclined in the least to obey a miniature NYC control freak.

    BTW, I am in concurrence with your reflections on his incessant adds on you-tube etc- they are at the point now where even a die hard supporter of him would find them tiresome and irritating. They are accurate though- they portray him as a irritating little mommy knows best , who , save for the $$$, would fit perfectly as head of any HOA, eagerly stepping up to attend to picayune offenses after a tough day at the DMV processing forms.

  5. Perhaps Bloomberg could use some of his wealth to hire someone who knows and understands the English language to read ( and explain ) the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to him.

    Thanks for the post.

  6. YES – YES – YES, he reminds me exactly of an HOA official who is trying to scold and educate – as our better. I'd never thought of it in precisely that way, but you nailed it hard. And nobody hates little tin gods of the HOA's more than I do.

  7. The US has been a banner of freedom – the shining city on the hill – and there are a lot of people who want to "change and rearrange" as Barack put it. Barack was the greatest firearms and ammo salesman that the world has ever known. Bloomie wants to step into those size 13 wingtips with his size 7 feet and try to exceed Barack's firearms sales record.

  8. Billionaire twit showing his twittery…proving that becoming wealthy does not mean "very bright", or "decent" for that matter.

    -raven: x2, he's exactly that HOA guy no one likes but are forced to tolerate.

    Speaking of DMV "help", it appears Colorado decided halfway color DL pictures should be replaced with B&W mug shot versions. Told the guy I wanted it redone, he said "No". Got me thinking why they'd do that, answer is not hard to figure.)

  9. DMV – government at its finest. Colorado got woke and while I understand the situation and how it happened, it's a damned pity.

  10. No kidding…pity is an understatement of Colorado's Californification. (Although, if some of the transplants knew their $400K home was sitting on top of an old feed lot they might have moved back.)

    Told the DMV guy I was cutting and pasting my halfway decent color mug shot for the new, seriously lousy, B&W version. He was not humored.

  11. Mini Mike has spent a butt load of dough on picking up delegates on Super Tuesday, and has not stood up to any serious debate to his world view, which almost nobody else has. We'll see how that all works out for him tomorrow night.

    For the last few decades, he has been living like Louis XVI, or Henry VIII: whatever he says goes, everyone around him laughs at his jokes, surrounded by nothing but yes men. Now he assumes that the rest of the country will also laugh at his jokes?

    Nope, things don't work that way outside of the palace. It's rough out here. People have guns, and for good reason. We also salt our food, and wash it down with Big Gulps (well, a lot of us do).

    Suck on that, Mini Mike.

  12. Our entire subdivision is built on top of what used to be the CSU Dairy Farm. Doesn't bother me a bit.

  13. That'd make some good dirt for the lawn. I got my initial comment from some of the old-timer ranchers who'd say it with a knowing smile and chuckle.

  14. You HAVE to wash Aunt Sally's food down with a 36 ouncer, Fredd. If Bloomie ever eats a half frozen corn dog, he'll choke to death on his 4 oz. drink, and it will be a fitting end. A proper epitaph.

  15. Thank you for putting it out there for the rest of the nation, ungrateful and unthoughtful though we tend to be.

  16. "Just ask him."

    No thank you; that would I would have to talk to him, a situation I would much prefer to avoid.

  17. Terrible how us flyover deplorables can't accept our "betters"know what is best for us. Must chafe them.

  18. People who CALEXIT are subject to "Reverse Sticker Shock" when they see the prices here. I've been closely following the listing prices as well as the recorded selling prices since 2013 in this area, so I have a decent grasp of the market here. One of the agents didn't believe me when I told him well over half the listed properties that sold went for 5%~10% less than the listing price, and he didn't believe me until he pulled up the figures on his laptop. He was stunned that I was right, and it sure took the wind out of his "Buy, Buy, BUY NOW!" sales pitch.

    You can get a very nice house here for $400k if you shop for it. You can also get some bargains for $300k if you don't mind putting some sweat-equity into it.

  19. Maybe Bloomberg doesn't know anybody responsible enough to own a gun because all the people he knows are megalomaniacs. It's a small demographic, but he fits right in.

    I never served, but but I've been shooting since I was about 10. So far, no problems.

  20. There are places – Phoenix market for example – where the inventory is very low and things are scooped up immediately. The move-in situation in places like Prescott, AZ is significant.

  21. While I don't rub shoulders with the likes of Mr. Bloomberg, I have been exposed to that world and have no good words for the parasites like Bloomie. It's a world of small people in small places who do small things for the most part. They disdain people who live outside of Manhattan, Malibu, Martha's Vineyard and enclaves such as that. And they reproduce in kind.
