Mayor Bloomberg Blames Hot Weather for Weekend Shootings

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stepped up to the microphone. The men gave him the news. He said “You must be joking son. Where did you get those shoes?” In other words, Mayor Mike doesn’t want to discuss the real causes of this weekend’s outbreak of “gun violence” (25 shootings in 48 hours) any more than, say, Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants to discuss Chicago’s gang-related ballistic blues (two dead, 24 wounded in the same time period). But an 11-year-old girl got caught in the gangland crossfire so the Big Apple PR department had to get out ye olde “11-year-old girl caught in gangland crossfire” playbook. To be fair, there is a correlation between hot weather and inner city shootings; just as there’s a link between cities with “strict gun laws” and “gun violence.” Once upon a time, New Yorkers could defend themselves through force of arms. They need to go back, Jack, and do it again.

    When are you people in the rotten apple going to get rid of that pudgy little dwarf and get a normal person in there or is he the new normal???

      Next up is councilwoman Quim, better known as a snipped and cauterized Bloomberg. This city is never stopping.

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Or Anthony Weiner, who famously exposed his a few years ago.

        1. avatar Jake says:

          I can’t even respond to that I find it so profoundly baffling. But this expletives removed state put Hillary on the hill when she stumbled across the border and smacked a “NY resident” sticker on her forehead. It would be better for all concerned if the whole puckered little mess at its ass end just slid quietly into the sea.

        2. avatar Will says:

          Wild thing is: Weiner leads over Quim right now.

        3. avatar Resident CT says:

          One reason for Weiners resiliency is likely the close association to Hillary Clinton. Weiner’s wife is Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s “body woman”.
          The signs are pretty clear that Huma is being groomed for bigger things and Weiner is likely to benefit.

    He used to blame it on the guns, then on lax gun laws in other states. Now it’s the heat? Why, is it because ammo goes off all by itself when it gets hot?
    When is he going to blame it the gangbangers?

  3. avatar William Burke says:

    They seem to like him, for unfathomable reasons. Or at least tolerate him. How else could we explain his reeelection(s)?

    Oh yeah. Turns out there IS a way….

  4. avatar WarsawPactHeat says:

    Surprised he hasn’t proposed a ban on temperatures over 85 degrees.

    1. avatar Will says:

      That may be a ban I’d vote for… unfortunately I know it would be useless to have it, so it would be a waste of time and resources to get it in place.

    It was plenty hot in Colorado this past week. I didn’t notice any upsurge in gun violence. I wonder why?

    1. avatar S.CROCK says:

      106 where i live and not a gunshot to be heard. oh wait there were a few for sighting in a scope. but no one got shot. and i live in a more slave area than co.

  6. Bloomberg doesn’t care because it’s not in his upper Manhattan neighborhood.

  7. avatar Douglas Todd says:

    Given their past behavior, the liberals that run New York City should now propose laws that will make it illegal to have high temperatures anywhere in New York!
    And then they can refuse to admit that just passing a law to forbid something doesn’t actually stop it.

    1. avatar Gyufygy says:

      Careful, he just might out a Mr. Burns-ian bubble around the entire city to regulate the temperature.

      1. avatar Derrick says:

        Exactly heh heh heh. D’oh

      2. avatar Bret says:

        Works for me as long as it cuts off NYC from the rest of the world.

    RF – Sweet Steely Dan allusion – brought a smile to my face. Slight correction though – ‘He stepped up on the platform…’

      My dedication to this site just intensified by a power of 10.

      I’ve just fired up some smooth studio jazz on Pandora in honor.

        Strike those big red words from your little black book

    2. avatar Ralph says:

      Sweet Steely Dan allusion

      Yeah, RF had me reelin’ in the years.

  9. avatar BLAMMO says:

    It’s hot in Arizona. Pretty much all the fucking time.

  10. avatar Roll says:

    Typical, blame everything and anything else besides the shooter.

  11. avatar mediocrates says:

    well, if New Yorkers defended themselves through force of arms, that would just be vigilante law enforcement. Take your bullets like a good little pacifist and STFU.

    1. avatar B says:

      Take their beatings like a Brit, stiff upper lip and all.

  12. avatar David says:

    Heat & Conflict in NYC. Time for:

    El Diablo Cazador Trofeo De Los Hombres 🙂

  13. avatar Martin Basher says:

    Any demographics on the shooters/victims in New Yawk Chitty & Chicongo? I think I know, but I don’t want to be accused of being the “r word” (you know….. racist).

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      Yes, I checked. All the shooters were men.

  14. avatar Ralph says:

    You gotta give Bloomberg this much — he didn’t blame George Bush.

    1. avatar Labman says:

      And about the bad weekends in NY and Chi Obama said: “Please pass some of that wonderful South African Rock Lobster”.

  15. avatar Trogdor says:

    When will he put the blame where it really lies…

    The full moon.

      1. avatar Sixpack70 says:

        Burninate the peasants, with 85 degree weather.

  16. avatar KCK says:

    In Spite of our laws…

    Because of the heat…

    The heat has taken the heat off of the guns but also the shooters.
    I actually think the problem is the shooters!

  17. avatar defensor fortisimo says:

    Well the obvious answer is to ban high capacity thermostats

  18. avatar Totenglocke says:

    That is some sound logic. When I’m hot, I murder people. When I’m cold, I profess my undying love to them. Seriously, how has this guy not been forcibly committed yet for his delusions?

  19. avatar Dave S says:

    Its obviously a result of Climate Change!

    No more energy use for NYC!
    save all that A/C and heat in the winter!

    That will make it all better!

    See the Mayor can be fully supportive of the Prez!
