The New York police have released excerpts from the two identical ricin-tinged letters sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns. “You’re not going to take my guns. You’ll have to kill me before you take my guns. If you take my guns, you should see what I’m going to do to you,” quoth nypost.com. “[I have a] constitutional and God given right and I will exercise that right til I die.” As Hizzoner has never met a bloody shirt he didn’t want to wave, it’s no surprise that he—and his media lackeys—exploited this attack to further his civilian disarmament agenda. “The letter obviously referred to our anti-gun efforts, but there’s 12,000 people who are going to get killed this year with guns, and 19,000 are going to commit suicide with guns, and we’re not going to walk away from those efforts.” I wonder if gun control supporters without a private army protecting them would be so bold.
