Michael Bloomberg and his faltering gun-prohibition groups are largely built on deceit and outright lies.
Their target is low information voters who will not take the time to research the facts but will quickly respond on emotion based sensationalized “our children are dying because of guns” stories.

What Bloomberg and his organization say to Americans about their goals regarding guns, versus what they really intend to accomplish with their efforts are two entirely different directions.
For example:
Bloomberg’s group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” claims its agenda is about “illegal guns”, yet, instead the group is pushing for restrictive laws that would infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens.
This deceit is the reason there was a mass exodus of dozens of mayors from “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” over the past few years.

It seems the mayors are not as ignorant as Bloomberg has hoped.

Then there is his group, “Everytown for Gun Safety” which claims to be all about gun safety , yet its first few efforts have been geared toward convincing parents across America, particularly mothers, that having guns in their homes makes them less safe and in fact could lead to tragedy in the home.
That deception led to several high level defections, including the resignation of Everytown’s executive director, Mark Glaze, who left saying the the groups proposals would NOT STOP MASS SHOOTINGS.
Former Pennsylvania Republican Governor, Tom Ridge also resigned from “Everytown” just a few days after the organization’s debut.

Then Bloomberg’s group, “Moms Demand Action” claims it is not anti-gun or anti-Second Amendment, which is a lie.
Shannon Watts, the organization’s leader repeatedly has said she wants to ban “assault weapons.”
Her definition of assault weapon means virtually every firearm with the exception of a muzzleloader.
Watts definition of “assault weapons”: ([email protected], 1:48 pm- Nov.1, 2013) “An assault weapon enables humans to shoot 10 rounds in one minute.”

Basically when the Bloomberg lobby tells you they want “background checks,” what they really mean is that they want to criminalize all gun owners for simple things like loaning a family member a gun. (see proposed Initiative 594 which will be on the Washington state ballot in November)

Bloomberg’s is determined to strip law abiding citizens of their gun rights. He’s putting 50 million dollars from his own wallet behind the push.
Don’t be fooled about his intentions.
Bloomberg promotes his gun control machine as “grassroots… Everytown for Gun Safety”, but… it’s not EVERY TOWN… It’s not GRASSROOTS, and it certainly isn’t about Gun Safety.
The truth is, it’s about “controlling lives” and stripping law abiding citizens of their only means to defend life.

    Bloomberg is an anti-gun radical bent on eradicating the 2nd Amendment. The question you have to ask is what is the real motive behind disarming us?

    • correct James.

      • James Hokr

        He should have quit after the 32oz soft drink debacle,

        • James Hokr

          By the way Jan, thanks for what you do.

          • James, thanks for the words of encouragement!

          • Lynx Eye

            Maybe you should get in touch with Sharyl Atikinson. Between the two of you, Heaven only knows what sort of interesting stuff you can did up on Bloomberg and the rest of the Commiecrat/RINO axis.

      • ADRoberts

        Posted here for position:
        There is more that just this. Bloomberg is not putting his money out JUST because HE wants gun safety. He has the backing of the ONE WORLD ORDER people including the Bilderbergs and many CFR. If one COULD check, I would bet that much of that 50 million is coming from them and not just Bloomberg.

      • Jim Becker

        Jan, we need you and your classes in NY.

    • mathis1689

      The motive is pretty simple. Bloomerberg and every other liberal in the world think that they ought to be able to dictate every aspect of our lives and they fear the thought of us getting enough of their Communism and putting a stop to their idiocy once and for all. Thus the motive behind every gun ban and restriction that has ever been or ever will be proposed or enacted-fear of the ordinary citizen who just wants to live in peace without some snot-nosed liberal minding his business for him.

      • chamuiel

        Liberal? at least one of his members was a Republican. Did you not read the article?

        • GQ4U

          What’s your point? Certainly you know about RINO’s.

        • chamuiel, apparently YOU did not read the article… The ONLY Republican who was “in” his organization, quickly left the organization once he figured out the real agenda.

          • chamuiel

            I read the article. I know the Republican left. Still, a conservative Republican should never have been a member, and your comment to me had nothing to do with what I said to mathis1689.

            If you think it is only the Liberals we have to worry about, you are sadly mistaken.

            as far as leaving theer have been several Democrats who have left Bloombergs organization, has there not?

        • boccagalupe

          chamuiel, is your last name BLOOMBERG??

          • chamuiel

            Not hardly.

        • mathis1689

          Liberals are like venomous snakes. They come in different shapes and sizes just like rattlesnakes and cobras are different. And,like venomous snakes,liberals are just as dangerous no matter what political party they belong to.

      • Paul in NH

        I’ll give up my guns when boom”ing idiot”berg gives up his armed protection and armed vehicles! On second thought, no I won’t because there are too many of these fools running loose.

        • mathis1689

          I have no intentions of giving up my weapons period. And that goes for regardless of who wants them or why.

    • GQ4U

      I think you and I both know why they want to disarm liberty loving Americans.

      • Town Crier

        Yeah, bottom line: Obummer wants to be dictator, and he can’t do it if there are a couple hundred million armed Americans, any one of which could… end his reign in a heartbeat… I wouldn’t, but I wouldn’t cry if…

        • GQ4U

          BHO is already a dictator. Once he’s proven to be a traitor would you take em out in a heart?

          • Sardis

            If Obama was a dictator, do you really think you’d have unfettered access to websites like these, where you can spew insults about him? You should spend some time in the Third World and see what a real dictatorship is like.

          • GQ4U

            You need to spend some time in the REAL world. He’s already made moves to take control of the internet. Wake up and see a dictator in the making — all them had lemmings like you willing fight for them.

    • Capt. Parker

      All that “eradicating the 2nd Amendment” would do is remove the “government’s promise” not to infringe on a GOD-GIVEN RIGHT that only God Almighty can take away ….. or that we, ourselves, can give up. As long as I breathe I do not cede my God-Given Right to protect myself … from common criminals OR a criminal government.

    • Sardis

      How do you know his motive isn’t to promote gun safety? Why does there have to be some conspiracy? Even if you disagree with the policy goals of gun control groups or you dispute the science they use, is it really so hard to imagine that they could be motivated by the desire to reduce gun deaths?

      • James Hokr

        That would be fine if it was true. But the facts are, many mayors and other influential people that have resigned from Bloomberg’s group, all say it is because they discovered it was really about registration and confiscation.

  • astrojohn

    Wow, so if I pull the trigger of my AR ten times in a minute, that makes it an “assault weapon?” What about my Glock, or my Governor (ok, that might be a bit tough considering it only holds six but I bet a pro could do it). So I guess that means ANY gun is an assault weapon by their definition.

    Come and take it, Shannon…

    • Trey Goodwill

      You can shoot 10 rounds from a revolver in a minute. Like she said; every gun except a MUZZLE LOADER

      • Clint

        You took the words out of my mouth.

      • Capt. Parker

        When I was well-practiced, I could load and fire six times a minute – 10 would be a stretch

        • Trey Goodwill

          They have speed loaders now. Just drop 6 more rounds in and fire.

          • rivarat

            I believe he’s talking a muzzle. A newbie could fire 6 and reload and fire again in well under minute with a revolver. BTW capt that’s pretty damn impressive.

          • Trey Goodwill

            Thanks I totally missed that. That is pretty damn impressive.

    • GQ4U

      They may take my gun but I’m using all the bullets first.

    • Town Crier

      If you can’t change your Glock’s clip in less than 10 seconds, you need PRACTICE!

      • Mrs. Patriot

        Magazine, not clip, but we get your point.

  • Max Kuenkel

    Some people, who are not familiar guns, think that firing a “round” means firing one magazine, or one clip, or one cylinder (like a “round” of drinks means multiple drinks). Perhaps this is what Shannon Watts was thinking?

    • Clint

      If that is what she was thinking, that proves the point. The are functioning out of pure emotion not reality and facts.

      • boccagalupe

        If thats her thoughts, hopefully she does not drive.

        • Clint

          Especially after leaving a bar. ;<) Come to think of it, she shouldn't be driving under any circumstances, even before the bar.

    • chamuiel

      shannon watts thinks? really?

    • GQ4U

      So Watts wrong with Shannon’s thinking?
      Nothing because she’s not thinking you need a brain for that.

    • Capt. Parker

      Shannon Watts was thinking ……. I think not!!!!!

      • She’s thinking but with limited information and the ability to comprehend logic.

    • Max… Shannon Watts is clueless about firearms.. That is evident.

      • Mrs. Patriot

        You should take her to the range.

        • Kent2012

          which end?

  • Charlie

    This is the 17 richest man in the world. Why can he come up with something that would actually help the low information voter to become informed. He could do a lot to revive our great country rather than attacking a natural (God given) right. This man spends millions to get his wishes to become a reality. Again Bloomberg could help our country , but he wants to control all of the poor folk.

    • GQ4U

      We should make every anti-gunner live in Chicago’s ghetto districts.

  • chamuiel

    the question is not why these people are quitting bloomberg’s anti gun groups.

    the question should be why they joined in the first place? Are they all just that stupid?

    • GQ4U

      I assume your question is rhetorical.

  • GQ4U

    Alinsky lemmings all believe the ends justifies the means. Deceit is minor when one considers what they are truly capable of. Remember folks that Obama’s crony Bill Ayers claimed it would be likely that 10% of the population of America would have to be killed because they would resist the socialist take over. Today we are much closer to finding out if that’s true.

    • Kent2012

      I think that the percentage would be much higher and there would be a problem with those that might only be wounded, of course there is always the possibility that that would not pose any problem at all..we are, of course, dealing with wannabe commies…..

      • GQ4U

        In all out war the numbers may be much higher but I believe Bill Ayers was speaking about “Death” camps for those who refused to accept the change after they took control — a post war killing field. True Believers in the Republic will not be tolerated.

  • Capt. Parker

    Bloomberg should be executed for High Treason …. or does he not understand the wording of the Constitution?

  • Mrs. Patriot

    Has Bloomers disarmed his personal security entourage? I don’t think so. But, see, he’s important and his life needs to be protected. Especially lately.

  • Ibcamn

    disarming the people of this country is the finale stag of the progressive machine,they need us defenceless so they can have total control/takeover of the USofA…………
