Anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg, now considering a run for the presidency, has apologized for the “stop and frisk” program he ran while mayor of New York City, but the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms wants to know where his apology is to the 100 million American gun owners he has demonized and penalized for merely exercising their Second Amendment rights.

Bloomberg told a church group in Brooklyn, ‘I got something important really wrong” with the controversial “stop and frisk” policy. CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb said it’s not the only error the former Big Apple mayor made.

“You also got my gun rights wrong,” Gottlieb declared. “For years, Bloomberg has treated the constitutionally-protected Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens like they are a regulated privilege. He’s weaponized his vast wealth to erode those rights in every corner of the country by supporting anti-rights initiatives and anti-gun politicians. He has waged a war on people who have committed no crimes, harmed nobody and merely wish to be left alone to mind their own business. To protect our guns and 15 round magazines, we need to ban Bloomberg’s billion round checkbook before he assaults our Second Amendment with it.”

“Mr. Bloomberg,” he continued, “where is your apology to 100 million gun owners? When will you stand before a microphone and acknowledge the moral bankruptcy of your crusade to quash the Second Amendment?

“We know the word ‘bankruptcy’ is a term billionaires don’t like to hear,” Gottlieb observed, “but honest firearms owners don’t like such terms as ‘registration’ or ‘licensing’ or ‘waiting periods.’ Just because you have deep pockets and a fat bank account does not give you the right to say gun owners have no rights. Nobody appointed Michael Bloomberg as the arbiter of rights and freedoms protected by the Constitution.”

Bloomberg told his church audience that “far too many innocent people” were stopped by police, questioned and frisked if officers suspected that person might have committed or was about to commit a crime.

“Bloomberg’s confession belies his treatment of American gun owners as second-class citizens,” Gottlieb said. “If anyone deserves an apology, it is the law-abiding firearms owners whose rights Bloomberg has tried to trample while he enjoys the perks of a wealthy lifestyle, including armed security that keeps a healthy distance between the former mayor and the people he treats with such disdain.”


With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

  1. Fat chance. He only apologized because he wants NY votes. Otherwise he doesn’t gve a schiff about our rights.

    • He will be lucky to get an appreciable portion of NYC votes the rest of the state’s Democrat votes will likely be for Bernie or Warren.

    • I would *LOVE* to somehow win/inherit a huge fortune and be the guy who injects funds by the millions into the pro-2A side of all this.

  2. “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.””


  3. I can’t figure out how a man as intelligent as Michael Bloomberg
    can theorize that more gun laws will stop criminals from owning
    and using guns illegally. That sounds like the same type of thinking
    that more drug laws will keep drugs off the streets of New York City.

    • Peasants are revolting enough as is you don’t want them able to be even more disgustingly rebellious against their betters.

    • Probably because Bloomie is no more than average intelligence. He’s not smart because he’s rich… and he is not rich because he’s smart. Bloomie is just your average garden-variety psychopath, a narcissistic control-freak without a conscience to stop him from f…king over anyone who gets in his way.

    • He don’t think that. He just wants to protect his wealth and life so he can be macho man with no fear of some destitute pervert holding him at gun point demanding oral sex. If the person was rich and was only holding a credit card he probably would not mind.

  4. When you have more money than 99.99% of the world’s population, what do you want? A dollar more? I think not. Ultimate power. Don’t hold your breath for that apology. No one should be able to buy any elected office, especially not the presidency and if he is serious that is exactly what he will do.

  5. “Far too many innocent people” were stopped by police, questioned and frisked if officers suspected that person might have committed or was about to commit a crime.

    Hmm, sounds kind of like red flag laws. I don’t suppose he’s going to apologize for those.

  6. Meaningless political apology. One of several he needs to make to various groups he has offended with his “Bid Daddy Knows Best” bullshit.

  7. It means nothing to this black law abiding gun owner. Bloomberg is a racist pig. He is like the white Liberal Jews who told blacks to disarm if they wanted their money. In the 1950s and 1960s. While the KKK was lynching blacks in the south and racist north.

    Ya. That’s right I said it.

    Now go read “Negroes with Guns” By Robert F Williams 1962.
    Read “Negroes And the Gun, the black tradition of Arms” by Nicholas Johnson 2014.

      • Thanks for the Link. (smile)
        I’ve been a member of the JPFO since 1993. I feel very comfortable holding anyone accountable for their crimes against the Bill of Rights. Regardless of their race, creed, color, or national origin or sexual orientation.
        The JPFO founder Aaron Zelman spoke on a christian conservative radio station in Virginia back then. It was he who I first heard say gun control was started for the sole reason to disarm blacks.

        I watched parts 1 and 2 when they first came out. And sent them to family members.(smile)

        Here another book I suggest you read.

        “This nonviolent stuff’ll get you killed”
        by Charles Cobb 2016
