25 Shootings, 6 Dead In NYC & Bloomberg Says His Gun Control Agenda Works?

BELLEVUE, WA – -( Six dead and more than two dozen shootings in New York City over the weekend is a sign that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda – which he hopes to spread across the nation with his big bucks campaigns to buy away the gun rights of American citizens – is beginning to fail, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

“Michael Bloomberg wants to use his wealth to buy Big Apple gun control all over the country,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “Despite reports that New York City violence is actually down from last year, over the weekend, that city accounted for half of the slayings that Seattle has seen so far for the entire first five months of the year.

“Before Bloomberg spends another million dollars trying to spread his program of gun prohibition,” he added, “the mayor ought to concentrate on his own turf and leave the rest of the nation alone.”

A story about the violent weekend held an important revelation about gun control that Gottlieb said has been overlooked.

Yahoo News noted, “New York recently became the first state to pass major gun control legislation since the Dec. 14 shootings in Newtown, Conn. The bill that Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law in January both strengthens the state’s existing assault weapons ban and introduces new mental health regulations for potential gun owners. None of that did much to help…a seventh-grader at Middle School 302 in the Bronx and one of three girls to be caught in the line of fire over the last few weeks.”

“That says it all about Bloomberg-style gun control,” Gottlieb observed. “Fat cats like Bloomberg can push all the anti-gun nonsense their wallets can handle, but while their efforts crack down on law-abiding citizens, they won’t stop a single criminal from committing a heinous crime.

“Anti-gunners always complain about the ‘Wild West’,” he noted, “but it looks more and more like the real wild places are cities like Bloomberg’s New York, where law-abiding citizens are hard put to own, much less carry firearms for self-defense thanks to the elitist gun laws backed by the billionaire mayor that have consistently disarmed good people while not affecting the bad ones.”

With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is one of the nation’s premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States. The Citizens Committee can be reached by phone at (425) 454-4911, on the Internet at or by email to

    1. If Bloomingidiots goal is to surpass Chicago in gun deaths caused by gun laws he is rapidly gaining , and in all sincerity I hope he reaches it . New Yorkers deserve nothing less for re-electing him .

      If he thinks that his gun control agenda is “Working”, I’d hate to see it failing.

    3. New York’s gun control is getting better. The shooters must be practicing more and using both hands.

      Way to go Bloomberg. Ask the Jews who made it out of Germany if they were for gun control.

      Typical “Napolean complex” type. I wonder how many of the victims were drinking 32 ounce sodas when shot? Obviously they were breaking the law and should have been eliminated. He really only wannts to make it better for us little people.
