Bloomberg Says Cops Should Strike Till Public Pushes For Gun Control

I think his armed security force, there to protect him from crazy people, should strike till he realizes that he uses armed police to protect him from crazy people

(New York Magazine) One of the few points that President Obama and Mitt Romney agree on is that they’re both determined not to let gun control become an issue in the election, despite Friday’s theater shooting in Colorado. However, their attempts to dodge the issue have only emboldened Mayor Bloomberg, who was rather bold to start with. After warming up on Monday’s Morning Joe, Bloomberg ended the day by suggesting on Piers Morgan Tonight that law enforcement should take a drastic stand on the issue. “I don’t understand why the police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike,” Bloomberg said. “We’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.” (video at the link)

Except, police aren’t necessarily there to protect us, they’re often there to clean up the mess afterwards. This is the kind of irresponsibility that we expect from hard core progressives like Bloomberg, who want you disarmed, but have no problem with guns to protect themselves.

    I have no problem with that. It would mean that I would be free to drive at a more reasonable speed. As to reducing crime, fewer cops and more guns might just be the answer. I have been in a number of shooting and have never, ever had a cop help.

    Another thing. Cops have one of the safest jobs on the planet. Look it up.

    OK. While it may be unlawful for the police to strike, the officers in NYC now have permission to do so from their mayor.

    So, the NYC mayor wants his police to go on strike, until a presidential candidate makes a statement about taking more legal guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens?

    I have never stopped believing that liberalism is a mental disorder so pervasive as to render the person nonviable.

    If you are a citizen liberal, then you believe in sucking money off of those who make money and pay taxes. If you are a political liberal, you believe in forcing those who make money to pay more in taxes (AND FEES for making money) to those who don’t. All the while forcibly depressing the economy and security of the nation.

    Well, that would just demonstrate why we need the guns. Because cops actually do go on strike. We would need the guns against the criminals that would come out of the shadows, thinking we were unprotected.
