"I do think that having concealed weapons on the streets of major cities is not something that is in the interests of the citizens of those cities in this day and age, and I don't think the founding fathers really thought about that when they drafted the Constitution," Bloomberg said.



Right. And his qualifications as a Constitutional Scholar are what exactly?

"If you want a gun permit, you should have to really show that your life is in danger, and that having a gun will protect you, will improve the chances of you surviving," the mayor said.


So should they ask muggers, murderers and rapists to submit an intent to commit their crimes so the victim has reason to get a carry permit? Last time I checked a lot of crime is RANDOM, or at least without much warning.

So pretty much this law protects celebrities and powerful people but leaves your average joe to fend off guns with his hands. Complete BS

Yeah, Bloomberg...The Founding Fathers didn't consider the possible uses and benefits for carrying weapons. They just FORGOT to deliberate over that aspect of the 2nd Amendment when they wrote it.

What a moron. He's the scariest type of moron, too. One in power. Elected officals like him live in an idealistic bubble where they are so removed from the populous that all they can see is their utopian ideal city, and not reality. They forget that they serve the people, not rule them.

I know where he's going with this: "You see, the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution back when all they had were muzzle-loading muskets. They didn't expect we would have assault rifles, therefore the 2A doesn't apply."

I can't count the number of times I've heard this bullshit. What they don't realize is that when the Constitution was written, MUSKETS WERE ASSAULT RIFLES!!!!!

NEW YORK (AP) — A personal employee of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was beaten by thieves who then carjacked the billionaire's car Wednesday morning in New Jersey, authorities said.
The employee was driving the 2001 Lexus in Hackensack, N.J., on an errand for the mayor shortly before 9 a.m. when he was approached by a woman who came to the window to ask for money, police said. As he declined and began to roll up the window, a man got into the passenger seat and punched him in the face.

"They force him out and take off," said Hackensack police Capt. Frank Lomia.

The car was found about two hours later, abandoned on the side of the road in Fair Lawn, N.J. Police were looking for the two suspects.

Bloomberg's employee was not seriously injured and his name was not released. He is one of many staffers who take care of Bloomberg's personal business and his homes, including his townhouse in Manhattan and country house in upstate New York.

So... in a roundabout way, Bloomberg has already been "victimized".
No guns involved, but his driver had no way to defend himself...
And Bloomberg doesn't care.

This argument is my latest pet peeve. The concept of the militia - that is the body of the citizenry armed with personal weapons - has survived centuries of technological development. Yet asshats like Bloomberg think that the last 50 years or so of advancements have now made it obsolete.

In 500 B.C., in Ancient Greece, the militia meant the body of citizenry armed for war. Citizens of the city states came to battle armed with thier own personal spears, shields, swords, slings and javelins.

"Militia" meant the same thing in Rome

"Militia" meant the same thing in the middle ages, and in England the system was in place for all of its recorded history.

"Militia" meant the same thing when people carried bows and crossbows.

"Militia" meant the same thing when people carried muskets

"Militia" meant the same thing when people carried muzzle loading rifles, then trapdoors, then lever guns, then bolt guns, etc.

Now, however, we are to believe that the last 50 or so years of technological advancement couldn't have been anticipated by the founders and is therefore obsolete. Horseshit. The founders knew damn well that the militia as a concept was viable regardless of the technological advancements which would occur.

November 1, 2006 -- ALBANY - The city should slash the number of people who are allowed to carry concealed weapons, Mayor Bloomberg said yesterday.

"We've taken a look at it to see whether we couldn't have fewer," Bloomberg said. "I can tell you one thing: We will keep it to as a minimum as we possibly can."

Bloomberg added that he has asked Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to tackle the issue.

"If you want a gun permit, you should have to really show that your life is in danger, and that having a gun will protect you, will improve the chances of you surviving," the mayor said.

He added that he doesn't have a problem with people who own guns to hunt, but said it doesn't make sense for those in densely populated urban areas.

"I do think that having concealed weapons on the streets of major cities is not something that is in the interests of the citizens of those cities in this day and age, and I don't think the founding fathers really thought about that when they drafted the Constitution," Bloomberg said.

The mayor has been on a much-publicized national campaign to crack down on illegal guns and dealers who sell them.



So we all know when and how our life will be in danger, by that time it will probably be to late. What an Asshat.

Hey Bloomberg, you asshat RINO!

The 2nd was not put in place so that we could beg the state for the right to own and carry firearms and it sure as shit wasn't put there for duck hunting.

The 2A is in place so that we can protect ourselves from idiots like you who try to take our rights away and implement your own "social order".. If that scares you then you should take a long, hard look at your political beliefs and what laws you are trying to impose on the citizenry...

Anybody have any legit stats on the instances of N.Y CCW holders using their firearms in actual crimes?

There is a real reason why Bloomberg takes this stand, but it is one that he cannot say publicly.

In NYC, as in many other large cities, if CCW laws were "liberalized", that is, made more accessable, what would most likely happen?

There would be an upswing of mostly white folks shooting, mostly, young black males.

Black power brokers in these cities would be crying out over the killing of black "youths". Many of these people have real power in a city like NYC. They are state congressman/women, city council members, church leaders, "civil rights" leaders, etc. and they can wield heavy duty political clout. Look at the heat the NYPD has come under every time some "honor student" is shot. And they have a strong organization backing them. How do you think John Q Citizen would fare with the "No Justice No Peace" crowd? They'd be serving scapegoats for breakfast.

Also, the biggest fear among big city mayors? Riots/Civil unrest.

They know that only a thin veneer covers the savagery that could be unleashed in a modern riot, even if it only affects a realatively small area of that city. Besides the death, destruction and property damage, a riot is a major stain, politically, for that city's leadership. Big city mayors will do almost anything to prevent a climate from getting overheated racially.

So. . . CCW as praciticed in many parts of the country is a dead issue in cities such as NYC.

No, they did not forget. Indeed , they assumed it. Historical eveidence - journals of attendees at the Convention - say that the Amendments were not thought necessary because the way the COnstitution wAS written ASSUMED thhe rights of the first 10 Amendments. The Amendments were written to guarantee against the very sort of country destroying weasel Bloomberg is.
