Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins suggests that Michael Bloomberg may be giving up on gun control and going back to running his business:
With gun control failing nationally, The New York Times reports that Michael Bloomberg is heading back to private business at Bloomberg L.P.
This comes after he dumped $150,000 into the August 12th Milwaukee County Sheriff’s race in an attempt to beat Sheriff David Clarke’s “conservative pro-gun policies.” Clarke won. Bloomberg lost.
It also comes after his gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety aired a video meant to justify firearm confiscation for women’s safety, but which inadvertently made the case for women to own guns to protect themselves. Breitbart News reported that after a female panel reviewed the commercial on ABC’s The View, three of the four panelists came away telling women to get a gun to protect themselves and their children.
Bloomberg’s return to private business also comes after the most visible gun control group he supports, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, only managed to convince five businesses–Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Chili’s, Sonic, and Target–to ask law-abiding citizens to come to their stores unarmed. Moms Demand was able to get a sixth business–Starbucks–to ask customers who openly carry firearms not to be so flamboyant about it.
On the other side of the coin, Breitbart News recently reported that 57,000 businesses were fighting this push by putting a “guns welcome” sign on their front doors.
I think that while AWR does a good job of chronicling some of the many high-profile failures of Bloomberg’s gun control agenda, I don’t see any barriers at all that would prevent the billionaire from both returning to work at Bloomberg L.P. and continuing to fund gun control initiatives.
I would agree with Owens here. Bloomberg will NEVER stop, he is dyed in the wool Statist. People like him obsess over controlling others, and nothing will ever stop their perverse desire to erase personal liberty. If Bloomberg were to have his say. You would eat and drink only what he deemed good for you. You would be stripped of your right to own firearms, and every last freedom would be open to Bloomberg’s approval. The fact is, and I am sure some will accuse me of being sensational or over the top here, that Bloomberg is evil. Note, I am not Ann Coulter, I do not write or say things to get attention, I say things I BELIEVE! How can I deem Bloomberg, and those like him evil. Well, our liberties come from one source, that source is God above. And anyone trying to stamp out those liberties is therefore directly opposing God. And that is undeniably evil. And, as one of our Founders reminded us, all evil needs to succeed is for good men to do nothing. So, it is easy to see that we must NEVER stop opposing the Bloombergs of the world.
Note, if anyone believes that those calling for gun laws that would disarm the people are not evil, allow me to submit that Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Castro, ISIS, and every other dictator or Totalitarian you can name used gun control to first disarm, then to enslave and butcher their people.
