Bloomberg: Minorities Can’t Be Trusted With Firearms

Michael Bloomberg bigot racist minority guns gun control

Former New York Mayor and reported presidential wanna-be Michael Bloomberg held forth before a sold-out Aspen Institute crowd on Friday. Because he has billions of dollars, he draws crowds and is frequently asked his opinion on a range of topics, whether he has any expertise in the area or not.

After opining on topics such as marijuana legalization, education and poverty in the United States, the topic of “gun violence” was teed up for America’s foremost advocate of civilian disarmament.

As the Aspen Times reports:

Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25. Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said.

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” Bloomberg said. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

Except Mayor Mike is wrong. In fact, he’s not even close. Since 2000, minorities have committed about 55% of the murders in this country while whites were responsible for about 45%.

It’s a good thing Bloomberg didn’t put a bigoted, fake news item like that into a tweet or he might find himself banned from the platform or denounced as a white supremacist.

Tom King of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association pointed out the obvious:

“Mayor Bloomberg’s statement that black males should not be allowed to have guns echos similar sentiments made by southern white supremacists in the 19th century,” Tom King, the association’s president, said in a statement. “So called ‘Black Codes’ were enacted by various southern states to discriminate against black Americans and maintain the system of white supremacy that made slavery possible. These included restrictions on firearms possession.

“If a politician said this about anything other than guns, the mainstream media would be all over them,” Mr. King argued. “Michael Bloomberg isn’t just any politician, he is the leading voice for gun control in America. He should be held accountable for this slander.”

But, of course, he won’t. He isn’t a young Heisman Trophy winner or an Iraq War vet, after all. So he won’t be held to the same standard.

Michael Bloomberg is someone with whom the mainstream media agrees. They couldn’t be happier to help him further his gun-grabbing agenda, so calling him out on a statement like that isn’t in their interest.

And while Daddy Bloombucks may, in fact, be a bigot, let’s be fair…he isn’t a racist when it comes to guns. He’s always been an equal opportunity civilian disarmament advocate. Someone who wants to get firearms out of everyone’s hands (as long as they’re not wearing a uniform or working in his security detail). Mayor Mike’s just taking it slow and throwing his cash into the project, hoping to reach that ultimate goal down the road.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

      Dudes, white folk are the minority in many cities. Don’t be so racist.

        Took a broad liberty with that, didn’t you?

    Here’s what’s even more alarming. 55% of all murders are committed by blacks. They make up 13% of the US population. But, half of that 13% is female. That means 6.5% are male. But, only 3% of the population is blacks men between the ages of 15-25. Wrap your head around that. There’s 350 million people in the US. More than half of all our murders is committed by 3% of our population. That is NOT entirely a product of one’s environment. There must be a genetic predisposition. But scientists can’t even research that, let alone publish their findings without being labeled a racist and drummed out of their institutions.

    1. avatar Chris. says:

      You make that statement: “That is NOT entirely a product of one’s environment.”

      What proof do you have for the accuracy of this Statement?

      1. avatar TrueBornSonofLiberty says:

        There have been studies on race and IQ. Those scientists are currently under heavy fire right now. There are facts that show that some races have lower average IQ’s. Once you have an average under 90, a predisposition towards crime exists. Each point lower exponentially raises that likelihood. Those on the left vehemently dispute the FACTS because it destroys the post-modernist ideological view that it’s ALL based on social construction. For those interested, read the Bell Curve or watch some of Stefan Molyneaux’s videos on the subject of race and IQ. Some of those videos he interviews the very scientists who have done the FACTUAL research. Then you can decide.

        1. avatar jwtaylor says:

          Yes, there have been tons of studies on IQ and race. What they have come up with is a consensus, including the studies you have mentioned, is that “there is a difference and we don’t know why”. Genetics doesn’t account for it, and neither does environment. It is a very much still a mystery.
          Keep in mind, white folks aren’t at the top of the list. If you want to go by IQ, Ashkenazi Jews are the master race, followed by Asians.

        2. avatar TrueBornSonofLiberty says:

          I’m familiar with the IQ “rankings” by race. I never said whites were the smartest.

        3. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

          IQ tests are a pretty piss poor way of determining intelligence. For one thing there really isn’t any such thing as intelligence, it should be intelligences because there are a number of different types of intelligence. Most of us have a fairly even spread of the different intelligences but it becomes a little more obvious when you observe savants. There are people who can’t tie their shoes but if they hear a piece of music once they can sit down at a piano and play it flawlessly. Are they stupid? No, they just have a very high degree of musical intelligence and low degree in other types. There’s mechanical intelligence, linguistic intelligence, mathematical intelligence, musical intelligence, social intelligence, etc. Perhaps I suck at math but can easily learn to speak other languages. Am I smart or stupid? Perhaps I can’t play an instrument but I can rebuild a carburetor. No IQ test can quantify that.

          Furthermore, a very large percentage of the people we think of as stupid aren’t stupid at all but mentally lazy. The brain is like a muscle, if you don’t give it a workout every now and they it gets flabby.

        4. avatar Shik says:

          To echo jwtaylor’s point, even the Bell Curve says genetics alone doesn’t explain the variations in racial IQs. Measuring intelligence as a single number is overly reductive to begin with anyway.

        5. avatar TrueBornSonofLiberty says:

          I never said it was exclusively genetic, smh. I said it wasn’t exclusively environmental as the fact hating post-modernists would have you believe. I said there MUST be a genetic predisposition. That means genetics would play a role. Not be the sole determining factor.

        6. avatar Shik says:

          yup. I see that now. My bad.

        7. avatar Chris T in KY says:

          To anyone who brings up the issue of IQ. Please tell me why Libertarians, Liberals, the Left, the socialist progressives, the atheists, the homosexuals, and even the Christians, all support allowing immigrants to flood into this country, without any screening?

          No medical screening? No test for understanding the English language? No testing for education level? No proof of technical trade knowledge or experience? No check for criminal or terrorist connections? No one to sponsor them?

          If the issue is IQ then why are the above supporting letting these unscreened people into the country?
          I look at this as an invasion. I don’t believe any of them support gun civil rights. Or the rest of the Bill Of Rights.

        8. avatar TrueBornSonofLiberty says:

          Cultural enrichment is their justification. But yes, you’re right. But I’d take it a step farther and say the invasion is a violent desecration of our national sovereignty.

          Chris T in Kentucky: Your unfairly labeling libertarians. We strongly believe in the concept of helping other people out that are down on their luck as long as they have a strong work ethic. We strongly oppose those of any color or race that sits around on their butts all day and expect others to pay for their lifestyle. We would, if able, cut out the vast majority of government welfare programs.

        10. There are supergeniuses in asylums who paint the walls with their feces.

          Intellect alone is inadequate.

          There are more Christians on death row than Atheists, too. Does that mean Christians are predisposed to crime, that criminals are predisposed to religion, or are there a whole bunch of unidentified factors to consider?

          What are you going to suggest next, skull measurements?

        Only the unanimity of every psychologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, sociologist, criminologist, and every other social scientist or researcher of human behavior. Human beings’ thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors are ALWAYS a product of the complex interactions between that person’s biology (including, but not limited to, their genetic constitution) and their environmental influences throughout their lifetime.

        That you’re demanding proof of a bedrock scientific principle reveals that you have no idea what you’re talking about.

          Just out of curiosity, how does God’s interaction with man fit into this theory?

        2. avatar TheBruteSquad says:

          The scientific consensus is, “there seems to be a significant genetic and hereditary component to intelligence but lets ignore that and exaggerate the Marxist economic determinism theory’s validity because if we publish too much on the genetic component we will end up like Charles Murray, James Watson, and Richard Lynn where no matter how important our contributions to science we are still going to be protested off college campuses by mobs of leftwing ideologues and possibly physically threatened.”

    2. avatar barnbwt says:

      It’s worse, because a significant chunk of that small young, male, black population is incarcerated at any given time, so the portion available to commit murder during a given year is smaller still. And since even that niche of a niche is quite varied between portions of the community that would commit murders (unemployed, poor, inner city, ‘ghetto’ folk) and those that rarely do (middle-class or wealthy, educated, gainfully employed) the actual population of people responsible for the statistical majority of murders probably only numbers a couple ten-thousand, in a couple dozen specific cities, across a handful of city blocks.

      When you look at the problem from that lens, and how effectively Big Data can compile dossiers & accurate predictive profiles from snippets of web activity…it becomes obvious just how protected these small dangerous pockets of humanity are from truly proactive law enforcement, and how isolated from civic development.

      Such a small number of people among a sea of many, many times their number. How…vulnerable those murderers would be in a scenario in which their victims could fight back and they had competent, persistent pursuers in law enforcement.

      1. avatar jwtaylor says:

        “How…vulnerable those murderers would be in a scenario in which their victims could fight back and they had competent, persistent pursuers in law enforcement.”

        This, exactly this. A simple study of the few zip codes in which murders are concentrated would show you those are also the same zip codes where few murderers are found and when they are, their sentences are light and bail is quick. Flood the streets with law enforcement and when you find them, keep them in jail.
        Yes, everyone will say it’s racist because you’ll be locking up a whole lot of young black men for the rest of their lives. And those particular men should be. You’d dramatically improve the lives of black families in America practically overnight.
        Which is why the Democrats will never do it. They have the keep those plantations going. It’s all they know how to do.

    3. avatar jwtaylor says:

      No research on that? There’s been ongoing research on that for hundreds of years. And for hundreds of years good science has proven that genetics is not an accurate predictor for violent behavior.
      It especially makes no sense in America, where much of our black population were descendants of slaves, who were often the result of direct breeding programs. I have a hard time believing that slave holders bred in aggression to their captives.

      1. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

        Hundreds of years of research? Oh my, that does sound impressive! The fact is, however, that the human genome mapping was only just completed in 2003. Basically five minutes ago. That’s just mapping. Discerning meaning and purposes among those genes is an entirely other matter, especially as it relates to personality traits.

        The current state of what’s called the “genetic approach” says little about assessment. Any definitive answer on genes’ direct involvement in personality assessment will likely not occur soon, due to the probable involvement and interaction between many genes in the expression of any trait, like aggression, for example.

        What is known so far, for what it’s worth, is that there is substantial evidence that behavior-influencing conditions including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder (what we used to call manic-depression) are affected by heredity, as are tendencies toward substance abuse and anti-social behavior. For example, genes related to levels monoamine oxidase (MAO), which helps regulate personality traits such as sensation seeking and novelty seeking, also is related to dominance, aggression, and impulsivity. Yes, there are counterarguments to this. I know them and concede their existence, but I’m way over on space usage here to go into them. Suffice it to say that the application of molecular biology, coupled with advanced imaging technologies like MRI, fMRI, PET, and CT scan (what we used to call CAT scans), to the study of behavior is a scientific game changer.

        The troublesome part is that a lot of people don’t want to know the truth. People from populations suspected of built-in conditions (whether violence, homosexuality, etc.) are afraid they’ll be screened and targeted. People outside of these groups fear that these groups will use the results as an excuse for their behavior. So it’s quite a challenging environment of competing agenda out there.

        Nevertheless, “young male syndrome” is a real thing. It’s also a very complex thing.

    4. avatar raz-0 says:

      You are bad at numbers.

      55% of homicides are committed by 3% of the population. Sounds WAAAAY out of whack. Except that the number of homicides in the US per year is something like 0.0006% of the population. Even if EVERY ONE of those homicides were perpetrated by a black male 15-25, and every homicide was one perpetrator to one victim, only 0.2% of the 3% population would be involved.

      1. avatar Someone Else says:

        And you’re bad at reading comprehension. He wasn’t saying 3% literally committed 55% of murders – 55% of murders were committed by a group of people whose demographic makeup matches 3% of the population. So if one were to infer that race, sex, and age are the only factors leading one to commit murder, then that 3% of the population are predisposed to commit murder and are (potentially) the problem…

    5. avatar Anymouse says:

      Or, it could be the product of a welfare system that rewards teen and single parent pregnancy, increases payments for having more kids, and discourages having the father in the home. After 2-3 generations, you get populations in a spiral that don’t know how to have esteem for accomplishing something or valuing education. Their role models become the thugs in the streets, and they’re sucked into it, despite the majority making less money from gang activities than they could at a minimum wage job. Unfortunately, they’re not going to listen to someone outside the community, so they someone has to rise up from within.

        I don’t know if you’re being serious or a bit sarcastic here.

        If it really does all come down to poverty, why aren’t poor rural white people (or rural any people) committing murder at a rate similar to poor urban black men? The biggest difference between the groups is urban gov’t-welfare ghetto culture.

      It is NOT genetic disposition – it is the slavery of the welfare state we have become. As long as our government wants to keep pets, feed them them, clothe them, house them, they will gladly take the handouts rather than building their own lives, teach them that white men are keeping them down and they will hate all white men (except, of course, the Massa – the shot callers in government that give them a tiny slice).
      This is not only lower class blacks, but also lower class whites. Johnson did this with his “Great Society”, assuring the black vote for the next 100 years.

    8. avatar Scoutino says:

      We don’t know the racial profile of all murderers. But the numbers are definitely suspect.

      It’s actually 55% of murders that were SOLVED. Which murder will get more police attention, effort and therefore clearance rate?
      – A) White suburban housewife killed in her house.
      B) Another run of the mill gang drive-by or ‘drug deal went wrong’ in ghetto.

      Predominantly black Chicago has murder clearance rate of whopping 15.5%. (https://heyjackass.com/home/)
      Who do you think committed the remaining 84.5% for which no suspect was charged? Unless someone believes that whites go hunting into minority neighborhoods for victims (who are 78.2% black and 13.3% hispanic) the answer is clear.

  4. avatar Jonathan-Houston says:

    Ok, so he was off on the exact percentage. Let’s say he was sloppy or even that he exaggerated to make his point. What is that point, exactly? The majority of criminal homicides are committed by blacks. How is that fact bigoted? How is any fact bigoted? Facts just exist, without allegiance to anything.

    NOW can we get back to fighting crime, TTAG, rather than splitting hairs and signaling virtue? Thanks.

    Bloomberg’s “95%” stat is accurate for NYC. But not for the country as a whole.

      1. avatar CLarson says:

        From your link:
        “Black arrestees (54.8%) and Hispanic arrestees (32.2%) account for the majority of Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrestees while White arrestees (6.9%) and Asian/Pacific Islander (5.4%) arrestees account for the remaining portions of the Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrest population.”

        So add in the 0.3 Amer Ind not in the quote, minorities were 92.7% of those arrested. So Mayor Mike’s quote in regards to ethnicity was essentially true for New York in 2017. “Bloomberg claimed that 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: male, minority and between the ages of 15 and 25.” Bloomberg is not a bigot if his source is New York crime data. Unless being off by 2% is bigotry.

        1. avatar jwtaylor says:

          Absolutley right. My bad. I was thinking “black” not just adding all minorities together as one solid group. Of course, since whites are the minority in NYC, it skews those numbers pretty dramatically.
          Instead of it being a minority of people committing the majority of crimes, in reality it is the majority of people committing the majority of crimes, if you are considering minorities as a solid block.

        2. avatar Chris T in KY says:

          I will say that Bloomberg is a racist for saying “Cities need to get guns out of this group’s hands and keep them alive, he said”. Yes Micheal Bloomberg is a very racist man. He like many white Liberals assumes all blacks in the cities are dangerous criminals and ALL OF THE BLACKS NEED TO BE DISARMED.

          The fact that 13% of the population, black, commits 55% of the murders means nothing. Other than the Welfare Industrial Complex that Bloomberg supports, is doing its job in destroying the traditional black family. The socialist progressive, the Liberals ,the Left, and even you Libertarians, supports the Welfare State.

          The white Liberal loves the Welfare state. They made public housing projects “gun free zones”. Of course there is murder and mayhem in these areas.

          The law abiding people who live in these areas need guns, so they can their handle their own problems. The white Liberal is as racist as the KKK. Both want ALL BLACKS DISARMED. Both want the government to control the lives of black people.

          The white Liberal does not need to burn a cross on the front lawn of a black persons home to be called a racist. They just support the KKK when they do it. The white Liberals said so in court.

    So you have not proved Mayor Mike wrong, unless TTAG thinks MS13 is white criminal gang. 😛 Perhaps Mayor Mike is looking at more granular data to get his 95% number.

      :O wow I actually clicked the link and read Aspen times article but missed the date. Nice catch.

    Look – if you’re into guns, you’re probably well aware of the fact that is (((Bloomberg))) is telling the truth about the schwarzes.

    Look- if we don’t broadcast this for moral reasons- that’s fine. It can just be something we don’t talk about. But to actively counter-signal the truth? No.

      Come again? I can’t hear you through that stupid echo.

        If it wasn’t clear:
        – Blacks and hispanics are more violent than whites. Everyone knows this. Stop pretending.
        – It’s not good for the gun community to push an objectively false narrative.
        – Saying “democrats are the real racists” isn’t going to stop the Jews from taking away your guns.

        1. avatar Ing says:

          It was clear enough. Just wanted to see if you’d double down on the racist nonsense.

          Sounded better in the German original. I bet he has a nice red, white and black flag on his wall.

    Do stupid stuff, win stupid prizes. It has absolutely nothing to do with color, creed, gender or race. If the race card is the best you’ve got, you show that you’re on the down side of a losing slide. Once again the communists try to lead us down the rabbit hole with specious arguments intended to polarize us. That dog won’t hunt anymore, and it sure as hell won’t hunt here. -30-

    Back when people were studying social dynamics used rats ( not dems). One study kept adding to the group of rats to see what would happen. The higher the pop. the higher incidents of stress/violence and cannibal behavior. Jane Goodall found the same behavior in chimps. Some races can tolerate density better than others. Maybe culture. The population of Africa prefers extended families and tribes. Asian seem to tolerate density the best. ( My observation and speaking in generalities. Always exceptions). Also the nature vs nurture argument. Disclaimer; The only bigotry is towards deamonrats.

    So what if the comment if 3 years back. I doubt he’s changed his stripes.

    If Bret Kavanaugh can be pilloried for something he didn’t do in high school, Bloomberg can be held accountable for a 3-year old remark. Fair is fair.

    My favorite attorney told me this one a long time ago…”and when they can’t use rats they use lawyers, ’cause there’s stuff even rats won’t do”…-30-

    He is not that off base: disarming all black men under 65 would cut the murder rate dramatically. He is willing to admit we have a Black violence problem

    A liberal, socialist elitest , is a racist ? I’m shocked !

  28. avatar Chris T in KY says:

    Instead of flooding the cities with drugs, flooding the cities with guns, ammo, and instructional videos would solve most of these crime problems. Sound crazy? I think its crazy to think you can replace the father in a traditional family with a welfare check. But Liberals don’t support the traditional family. And that is crazy.

  29. avatar AJ says:

    Ironically, the people he claims are the ones committing the crimes did not obtain their guns through legal means. So what new law is he proposing that would fix that issue?

  30. avatar HEGEMON says:

    How about being a minority, but because I’m a conservative, I’m labeled WHITE, or a WHITE wannabe by leftist morons. Being NOT minority enough is a real thing. Reading books on moral philosophy, speaking English without an accent, and knowing grammar can get you killed in some neighborhoods. So much for the GREAT MELTING POT that liberals despise.

    One thing is certain, Bloomberg can’t be trusted with power. If I understand the concept of the bell curve correctly, 100 IQ is average, the upper part is above 100 and the lower part is below 100. If that is a true average, does that mean that half of the people I deal with every day are geniuses and the other half are idiots? If so, that would explain a lot of the behavior I have to deal with every day. Or maybe the whole “bell curve” thing is just more made up junk science to satisfy someones political agenda. It’s getting so that if I can’t see something expressed in quantifed, repeatable numbers, or pick something up in my own hands and look it over I don’t trust it. Let’s not even get started on the ongoing controversy over the value and legitimacy of peer review. -30-

  32. avatar Gordon Zink says:

    Bloomberg “is frequently asked his opinion on a range of topics, whether he has any expertise in the area or not.” The only area he has expertise in is idiocy, and he’s more than happy to display it at the drop of a hat.
