New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio does it underhand (courtesy abcnews.com)

There’s bad blood between former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Or so Bill de Blasio wanted voters to believe before his election. Now that the dust has settled and the progressives’ progressive is in Gracie Mansion, it can be revealed that both men are statists with scant regard for the United States Constitution. As a sign that Mayor de Blasio has as much contempt for Americans’ natual and civil right to keep and bear arms as Moms’ main man, Hizzoner has joined Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Mayors Against Legal Illegal Guns. Surprised? Me neither. “Mayor Bloomberg took on this fight when few others would, and today we are safer for it,” de Blasio told nydailynews.com. “He built a national movement for common-sense gun control — one I am proud to join.” His Deputy iced the cake . . .

“A brand-new mayor made this one of the first entities he joined,” First Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris told The News.

“From the appointment of (Police) Commissioner (Bill) Bratton, we’ve made it clear that protecting the people of the city is one of the top priorities for Mayor de Blasio.

“ One of the keys of doing that is to get illegal guns off the streets. . . . Joining a group like this that makes it part of a national effort makes complete sense for this mayor.”

Yes. Yes it does. Meanwhile, news.yahoo.com reports that the United Nations has tapped former Mayor and MAIG man Mike to be their “special envoy for cities and climate change.” With a bit of luck the appointment means that Bloomberg will de-prioritize civilian disarmament. That’s personally. His money will continue to be the gun control movement’s life blood.

  1. NY: Meet the new boss, even worse than the old boss.

    Re: Bloomy switching over to be a high priest in the Church of Global Warming, I find little comfort in that. Now he’ll work to rob us as well as disarm us.

  2. Bill Bratton…Bill Bratton… that name sounds awfully familiar. OH THAT Bill Bratton:

    “William Joseph “Bill” Bratton CBE (born October 6, 1947) is an American law enforcement officer. As of January 1, 2014, he became the New York City Police Commissioner, the second time he has held that position. He has previously served as the Commissioner of the Boston Police Department (BPD) (1993-1994), New York City Police Department (NYPD) Commissioner (1994–1996), and Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) (2002–2009).” [Wikipedia]

    Yes indeed, another police administrator who never saw a gun he didn’t want to ban or a CCW application he thought should be granted.

    • Well, at least Bratton should have been exposed to a wide range of ideologies working in such diverse locations. Oh, wait. LA, Boston, and NY. Hive of moonbats, hive of moonbats, hive of moonbats. Never mind.

      • He’ll fit into DC seamlessly if Cathy Lanier is ever fired for saying the wrong thing about the DC mayor or the Shadow Congress(wo)man. Moonbat central – too radical to be a state.

  3. That’s the most benign thing this putz will do. NYC will long for the good old days of Dinkins.
    Gladder every day that I left that rotting shit hole.

  4. Uhm like this is a shock? I am sure he will pick up where MAIG left off including running their servers.

  5. I like the fact that the mayor already has his “begging” hand out. Hey NYC, that was the sound of your taxes going up.

  6. “…we’ve made it clear that protecting the people of the city is one of the top priorities….”

    You do not protect people by disarming them.

    Under the law in the US, as established by precedent, it is not the responsibility of the government to protect the individual, it is the individual’s responsibility to protect themselves. They can not do so if they are prevented from having the effective means to do so.

    • I was going to comment on the “protect” stuff but you stole my thunder. That’s ok.

      It seems the people of New York have traded the devil they knew for the devil they didn’t. And this is America!!!!!

    • The amazing thing is he was very upfront with the screwing he was going to give them. They still elected him. Now tell me people don’t deserve the government they get.

  7. Is his wife a guy? Sure looks like a guy. Or a former guy, or half guy, or tranny throwout bearing, or whatever they call them on MTV nowadays.

  8. Clearly substantial people, various elites, believe that the ordinary person should simply put up with muggings and rapes, or the occasional murder. It is not practical to have the serfs shooting other serfs who, though violent, do an acceptable job cleaning floors and such. Now, if those violent sorts should predate on the managers and owners, that’s different. Simply allow the shooting staff to shoot the insolent trash. It all seems so well organized, efficient. At least looking from the top down….

  9. Okay, TTAG puts up way, way too much good content. I keep trying to get stuff done and then stumble across more tasty items. There ought to be a law.

  10. Warren Wilhelm Jr. was his name. Then he changed it to Warren de Blasio-Wilhelm. Now he’s Bill de Blasio. Next year it may be Bill Che Castro. Who knows?

    What I do know is that he’s had almost as many names as Shannon Watts aka Shannon Renee Troughton aka Shannon Renee Weaver aka Shannon Renee Marmion.

    It’s all about crafting an image. Even if it’s a lie.

    • Yep, you nailed it Ralph. This guy is an experienced con artise’. Suckered all those supposedly educated and erudite voters in NYC. His is a very interesting and checkered past…

      How it is that me, a peckerwood with too many guns out in the middle of redneck fly-over country was able to find out so much about him and not the voters of NYC doesn’t bode well for their self-estimation of intellect.

      I suspect that in the next few years, New Yorkers are about to find out just who they elected… just as black Americans are finding out that Obama doesn’t give a rat’s rear end about them or their problems, and anti-war liberals are finding out that Obama is perfectly willing to kill innocent people in far-away places, etc.

    • Has anyone ever figured out what the deal is with all of Shannon’s names? Was she really married and divorced that many times?

    • Shouldn’t de Blasio be encouraging OCAK (open-carry AK), at least until the NYC bankers stop screwing the municipalities of America and the fancy restaurants all serve $1 burritos? I say “let de Blasio be de Blasio.” New Yorkers deserve it. For three terms, minimum.

      I request that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (and its gold vaults) be moved to Nebraska for safe-keeping.

  11. I keep saying, it’s not Mayors Against Illegal Guns, it’s Illegal Mayors Against All Guns… IMAAG for short.
