Bloomberg On Gun Control: Police Should Strike Until Government Acts On Gun Violence (VIDEO).

This is an interview of Charlton Heston and he recalls the L.A. Riots:

He recalled the Los Angeles riots in 1992, which helped many Hollywood folks change their views on gun ownership. As smoke from burning buildings smudged the skyline and the TV news showed vivid images of laughing loot­ers smashing windows and carting off boom boxes and booze, Heston got a few phone calls from firmly anti-gun friends. One conversation went this way:

“Umm, Chuck, you have quite a few … ah, guns, don’t you?”

“Yes, I do.”

“Shotguns and … like that?”

“Indeed.”

“Could you lend me one for a day or so? I tried to buy one, but they have this waiting period … “

“Yeah, I know; I remember you voted for that. Do you know how to use a shotgun?”

“No, I thought maybe you could teach me. This is getting a little scary.”

“I noticed. I could teach you, but not in an hour. You might shoot yourself instead of the bad guys. The Marines are coming up from Pendleton; that’ll end it. When it does, go buy yourself a good shotgun and take some lessons. It doesn’t get so scary then.”

Heston said his friend writer-director John Milius had more calls. His answer was more forthright: “Sorry. They’re all being used.”

Bloomberg is just stupidly grandstanding. It still amazes me that New Yorkers re-elected this moron twice.

UPDATE: quote from an armed Cuban regarding Bloomberg’s statement.

It seems Virgin Galactic has been running flights to Planet Stupid all week.

Yup!

UPDATE 2: Rebuttal by Frank Borelli of Officer.com

“a duty they won’t shirk simply to serve some politician’s agenda.”

  1. Also he assumes that all cops share the same sentiments as the boot-lickers that serve at his pleasure.

    Sorry Mike, but the NYC Chief is against concealed carry not because he doesn’t want lawful people to protect themselves, but because he likes that nice office and the big paychecks!

  2. As I said when I linked Mr. Borelli on facebook: Words cannot describe the pride and gushing admiration I have for this retired officer who understands when politicking goes way below the belt.

    Bloomy…just, shut up. You know? Sit down on that thousand dollar, handcrafted European chair. Don’t touch anything. Just sit down, relax. And shut the fuck up for the rest of your term.

  3. Wow. I’m speechless. Bloomberg is an absolute moron.
    I feel sorry for the citizens of New York. No, wait, they elected him so I take that back.

  4. Geez….he’s screaming and crying because of the violence, and telling folks that the police are there and they (civilians) don’t need handguns, and ohbytheway I’m tellin the cops to go on strike. Hmm…wonder what the average 911 response time would be then? The day the cops go away, is the day the gang warfare will spill out into the “civilized” portions of the city, and the streets truly will run red with blood. I don’t wish that on anybody.

  5. You know, with stories like the one in Central Florida the other day, it is becoming easy to dismiss all police as budding tyrants with a badge. (No – not Zimmerman/Martin, the one with the SWAT team going to the wrong address and killing the guy who answered the door).

    Mr. Borelli’s epic smack down of Bloomberg is just the antidote I need to that.
