Michael Bloomberg Believes ALL AR-15s are Full-Auto by Nick Leghorn | Dec 23, 2012 | 61 comments facebook twitter linkedin email Brings back memories of “the shoulder thing that goes up”… [Full interview] comments Saul Feldstein says: December 23, 2012 at 16:07 He gets confused because the fulltime 24/7 taxpayer provided personal protection police security detail he has carries full auto carbines. Reply Mr Pierogie says: December 23, 2012 at 22:34 She asked him about that but did not really press him on it. Too bad, because he was visibly nervous about it for a moment, then started talking about something else. A sharper reported would follow up and expose his hypocrisy. People like Bloomberg either have enough money to afford full time security or they get it on our dime. So the limits he wants to impose will NEVER affect him directly, he just wants to appease the most people to propel his political career. I’m sure he’ll run for another office later, so he wants to exploit this situation to gain sympathy. He’s a typical idiot, scumbag politician. Reply Larry says: December 23, 2012 at 16:11 Ok, give us something new. We already know Bloomberg is an elitist idiot and a liar. Reply sancahnim says: December 23, 2012 at 16:12 Oh dear…. I swear I am going to run for office. The idiots in politics these days scares me!!! Reply Darth Mikey says: December 23, 2012 at 20:08 You have my vote. Reply Aharon says: December 23, 2012 at 20:31 I’ll support your candidacy. Reply Matt in FL says: December 23, 2012 at 16:14 Wait, so you’re telling me that one of the chief and most vocal anti-gun people in the entire world has no effing clue what he’s talking about? This is my surprised face. Reply S.CROCK says: December 23, 2012 at 16:35 i guarantee he could not hit a deer in 3 shots if the deer was more than 20 yds away. he sounded like a 90 year old telling a 20 year old what computers to buy and which one is the best and most modern. Reply BlinkyPete says: December 23, 2012 at 16:39 Yeah, but I’m pretty sure the constitution has a strict 3 round limit in the hunting section. Reply Derek says: December 24, 2012 at 07:54 I think you’re right. I’m pretty sure it’s right next to the section on “muskets” Randy Drescher says: December 23, 2012 at 16:15 I heard he was against that thing that had a pipe sticking out of one end where something came out of. Randy Reply Peter says: December 23, 2012 at 16:29 Anybody has a link to the complete interview? Reply BlinkyPete says: December 23, 2012 at 16:33 http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/nyc-mayor-michael-bloomberg-nra-18041670 Reply Anmut says: December 23, 2012 at 16:30 Full interview and when was that taped? Reply Chris H says: December 23, 2012 at 16:30 I don’t think he’s that misinformed or stupid. He’s deliberately trying to spread propaganda to the misinformed and stupid. Reply Sammy says: December 23, 2012 at 17:42 Boy, talk about 50 50 odds or he is stupid, misinformed, and an f’n liar? Reply lolinski says: December 23, 2012 at 16:32 I like how she says: “No, those are fully automatic weapons.” Reply Darren says: December 23, 2012 at 17:57 True. At least the reporter knew the difference, which is a start. And for all intents and purposes, an anomaly. Reply Chris says: December 23, 2012 at 16:33 This makes my head want to explode Reply Mikeb302000 says: December 24, 2012 at 11:07 Me too. I find it absolutely ridiculous that he seems to not know that the “assault weapons” which are in the news so much lately are almost always semi-auto. It’s embarrassing. Reply Matt in FL says: December 24, 2012 at 11:29 For once (maybe the second time) we agree on something, mike. I suppose for your side this is the equivalent of me facepalming when someone on my side uses a stupid example like, “You want to see what a disarmed society looks like? Look at Rwanda!” I want to grab those people and shake them and say, “You’re not helping!” Reply WLCE says: December 25, 2012 at 04:22 please explain why that stupid. im curious. Matt in FL says: December 25, 2012 at 09:36 Because just like the “every Swiss household has a government issued rifle” argument, it’s a dramatic oversimplification that ignores the million other differences between that society and ours. Dave S says: December 23, 2012 at 16:45 “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Reply CA_Chris says: December 23, 2012 at 16:58 The evil bloodthirsty-mindedness of the gun control witch hunt is really starting to scare me. These people are reveling in the most ignorant, hateful, and violent language. They openly advocate for the murder of gun owners, and gleefully await the next mass murder. They reject reason and facts, and assault anyone who disagrees. What monster possesses these people? Reply Casey T says: December 23, 2012 at 16:58 If we ever get the country straightened out, I want to see Bloomberg tried for treason and thrown in jail for the remainder of his life. He is the definition of a domestic enemy of the Constitution. Reply Totenglocke says: December 23, 2012 at 17:17 Life in prison? Please. I’d rather see him drawn and quartered in the middle of Times Square. Reply Sammy says: December 23, 2012 at 17:45 No, General Population in a max Fed Pen. Party in Mikey’s cell! Reply BLAMMO says: December 23, 2012 at 18:08 I’m betting on the torso going north on Broadway. Reply WLCE says: December 25, 2012 at 04:23 colorado supermax. solitary confinement. with the crimes of politicians and public officials since kennedy, that place would be stuffed full. Reply Jeh says: December 23, 2012 at 17:27 Bloomberg is just another way to say “moron” or “terrorist” or “liar” to the logical and sane while at the same time “hero” and “brilliant” to the liberal garbage infesting this country Reply Pete from Texas says: December 23, 2012 at 17:46 This is what I’ve come to expect from someone who bans donations to food bank because he is more concerned about salt, fat, and fiber, then the people who need donations the most. http://now.msn.com/hard-to-swallow-bloomberg-bans-food-donations-to-homeless-shelters Reply Sammy says: December 23, 2012 at 17:57 The same guy that wouldn’t let the United States National Guard into the storm damaged parts of Brooklyn and Queens because he didn’t want anyone other than the NYPD “running around with guns”! He doesn’t even trust our N/G with weapons in HIS city. What an American! He’d probably let the UN in though. Reply Eh says: December 23, 2012 at 17:47 Wow… Just, wow…. Reply ProfBathrobe says: December 23, 2012 at 18:23 “If you haven’t hit the criminal in three shots, you’re a pretty lousy shot. He deserves to get away.” You know, that sounds like I’m being facetious, but I would not feel surprised if Bloomberg actually holds that view. Reply Totenglocke says: December 24, 2012 at 09:24 Of course he holds that view, the criminal you’re shooting at is part of his core constituency. Reply Joe says: December 23, 2012 at 18:35 This is a pet peeve of mine – seeing semi-auto confused with full auto in all forms of media and the general public. How sloppy! Another would be the self-righteousness of these buffoons. Reply Anmut says: December 23, 2012 at 18:43 Outlaw the black, full auto clip fed machine guns! Now! Uniformed soccer moms and their sissy husbands are outraged by the violence! They can’t believe their God-less, self absorbed, prescription drug addicted lifestyle is subjected to so much evil! Reply In Memphis says: December 23, 2012 at 18:37 When I get my AR paid off, Im going to the dollar store and buying a cup holder, strap it to my telescoping stock and tossing a big gulp in there. My self portrait Christmas card will be a little late to Bloomberg this year Reply Bruce says: December 23, 2012 at 18:45 Wait, you all are missing the point. Didn’t he just say he has no problem with semi-automatic weapons. AR-15s are back in in NYC. Reply Anmut says: December 23, 2012 at 18:47 No – he has no problem with his security detail having those weapons. Just not the rest of us. Especially those of us in those dumb, inbred flyover states. Reply Ralph says: December 23, 2012 at 19:11 I’ve been sitting on a hard chair in front of my computer for so long that I have a terrible pain in my Bloomberg. Reply John F says: December 23, 2012 at 19:19 AND HIS POLICE department shot How many Citizens in front of the Empire State building? Reply GG says: December 23, 2012 at 19:26 Thus demonstrates a lack of understanding on the basics of weapon performance. Reply CarlosT says: December 23, 2012 at 19:46 You actually missed the money quote in this interview. The reporter asks Bloomberg about the fact that he lives with 24/7 armed security, and then goes on to ask about Boxer’s proposal to send the National Guard out to protect schools. His response? “That’s crazy! You can’t live that way!” By which he means, you peasants can’t live that way. That’s for those who are worthy, like me. Reply Mr Pierogie says: December 23, 2012 at 22:41 Yep. Security for Bloomie? Good! Security for others? Bad!!! For a guy who made so much money he truly is a fool. Reply Pocono Shooting says: December 23, 2012 at 20:02 What an IDIOT!!!! He gets irritated too if people don’t bow down before him and accept his stupidity as science. Reply Aharon says: December 23, 2012 at 20:32 Bloomberg: There Is Not ‘Anybody That’s Defended the Second Amendment as Much as I Have’ http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/bloomberg-there-not-anybody-s-defended-second-amendment-much-i-have_690864.html Reply Totenglocke says: December 24, 2012 at 09:28 Well, it’s official – that man is certifiably insane. What’s the process for having someone involuntarily committed in NYC? Seriously, the most anti-gun person in the country who spends MILLIONS of dollars a year trying to convince people to ban all guns actually thinks he’s supporting the Second Amendment? Reply Nine says: December 23, 2012 at 21:56 Huh. I wasn’t aware that ‘Idiot’ and ‘Hypocrite’ were spelled the same. B-L-O-O-M-B-E-R-G. Reply SoftwareCowboy says: December 23, 2012 at 22:58 Wow. I suppose you really don’t need to know anything about a topic to pontificate on it, but to do so on television takes some serious over confidence in ones own abilities. Maybe we should define the term. Bloomberg noun 1. An irritating or foolish person who lectures others on topics about which he is completely clueless: Who brought that Bloomberg to the party? verb 1. To make a completely false statement, get corrected by someone more knowledgeable, and then to dismiss the correction and continue speaking as if nothing had happened: He Bloomberged me on that system change and just kept telling the boss that it was impossible to fix, so I fixed it while he continued to yammer. Reply Liberty2Alpha says: December 24, 2012 at 01:28 +1000 Reply Lee says: December 23, 2012 at 23:10 This video was mentioned in the full interview. Nice to know who is not on your side. Reply Matt in FL says: December 23, 2012 at 23:15 I’m sad that so many actors whom I really like are in that video. Reply In Memphis says: December 24, 2012 at 03:11 No one there whos opinion I value. Actors and actresses that I like yea sure but nothing further. Sadly the people of this country would rather have the tough choices made for them. Snooki for president anyone!? Funny how the comments on the youtube page have been disablrd. Reply Derek says: December 24, 2012 at 08:04 “Snooki for president anyone!?” Dear God man! Don’t give them ideas. Aharon says: December 24, 2012 at 00:36 America doesn’t have leaders. America has rulers who are unqualified to run an ice cream shop. Reply Justice06RR says: December 24, 2012 at 19:56 Yea, it’s pretty sad that some good actors are on that vid. Funny thing is that you don’t see Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Bruce Willis, and Arnold S aren’t on it. Now we know which people are against us… Reply Justice06RR says: December 24, 2012 at 19:53 I almost spit out my drink on the monitor laughing at MB! Why is he even in office if he has no lick of intelligence? He probably gets all his Assault Weapons knowledge from movies. LOL Reply Samson says: May 15, 2013 at 15:59 THIS IS EXACTLY THE PROOF In The Technicolor Living Digital Surround Sound of Bloombergs idiocy and hypocrisy perfectly recorded for posterity. He says such absolutely wrong, misleading, incorrect and inflammatory things that make no sense but further his cause… and he knows Darned Well he has no problem with anything in life because he is not only Mayor of New York City but he owns a financial/media network empire *and* he’s a Billionaire…. minor detail. If Cigs and Sodas are banned in NYC, he’s got the moeny to make a long WaWa run. But this takes the cake, Almost as perfect as “A Shoulder Thing That Goes Up…” but not quite. FIRST, He decides THAT If you need 3 rounds to fire at a deer, that is it. TYPICAL BLOOMBURGLER, *HE* Decides how your life works, HE Decides you get , Hmm, THREE? Shots to hunt. AND THEN He gets “Assault Weapon” and Full Auto completely wrong. What a moron. Seriously, Moron. This is the guy who gives his press conferences and then goes back to chop it up in Spanish. To show how smart and with the people he is. Read a book on your subject of discussion first, dooshdaddy. Reply Samson says: May 15, 2013 at 21:48 Don’t forget – this is the guy who said, paraphrased, “You got a guy, banging on your door, he wants to rape/rob/murder you….. And you got a gun in the drawer… NOW Do you want a gun then?? NO! You got to go think about it , go get the gun , find the gun in drawer, load it up, go back to the drawer.. Its Stupid!! You don’t want a gun theen!! It will get you killed You want a phone! Dial 911 and stay BACK! LET THE POLICE HANDLE IT!” yEAH– *THAt’S* what the freak you want to do, and CERTAINLY Don’t want any gun to defend yourself with! No way!!! … 1, 2,,, 3,, DUh!
