But don’t worry, Bloomberg is a huge defender of Second Amendment rights or something.
Via Daily Caller:
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a champion of stricter gun laws, did not mince words responding to the National Rifle Association’s first press conference following the Newton, Conn. shooting.
“The NRA’s Washington leadership has long been out of step with its members, and never has that been so apparent as this morning. Their press conference was a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country,” Bloomberg said in a statement. [...]
Bloomberg took issue with LaPierre’s view, calling it “a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe” and admonished the four million member organization for failing to take responsibility.
“Today the NRA’s lobbyists blamed everyone but themselves for the crisis of gun violence. While they promote armed guards, they continue to oppose the most basic and common sense steps we can take to save lives – not only in schools, but in our movie theaters, malls, and streets,” he said. “Enough. As a country, we must rise above special interest politics.”
