Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)-  During a June 1 2014 appearance on Meet the Press, Michael Bloomberg said his efforts for more gun laws in the wake of Santa Barbara have “nothing to do [with] gun control.”

He simultaneously affirmed his hope that Elliot Rodger’s stabbing three people to death and shooting three others to death will finally be the impetus for more gun control.

Rodger also tried to kill four people by running them down with car.

Bloomberg said his efforts are about keeping guns out of the hands of “criminals, people with psychiatric problems… and minors.” He said these are “three groups, 80 or 90 percent of the public thinks should not have guns.”

He said his goal is to encourage “the public [to get together], tell the Congress and their state legislatures, ‘We want reasonable background checks. We don’t want to end the Second Amendment; this has nothing to do [with] gun control.'”

When asked if Rodger’s actions would lead to more gun rules, Bloomberg said, “You certainly hope so.”

Bloomberg also criticized concealed carry laws that allow law-abiding citizens to carry guns on campus for self-defense.

But it is not about gun control…

    1. When is he going in for treatment for his OCD?
      And why to people listen to this psycotic idiot!
      Yes Bloomberg, I called you an OCD psycotic idiot!

    2. What this scum wants is for the liberal gun-grabbing parasites to be the ones who define what mental illness is or isn’t ! The 2A means nothing to this scum,..nothing ! Freedom loving Americans can’t give these douche bags anything at all !

    3. He just screwed up his speach!

      “Michael Bloomberg said his efforts for more gun laws in the wake of Santa Barbara have “nothing to do [with] gun control.”

      “He simultaneously affirmed his hope that Elliot Rodger’s stabbing three people to death and shooting three others to death will finally be the impetus for more gun control.”

      Does he want to ban knives now because two 12 year old girls in Wisconsin stabbed their friend 19 times in an attempt to kill her?

    4. He said these are “three groups, 80 or 90 percent of the public thinks should not have guns.”

      But its ok for the 10% to 20% to have them, like his security?

    5. This is just an idea for you Bloomturd. Take the red gun in your left hand and shove it straight up your arse, follow with the yellow one. Then if you can, just shut up.

    6. Bloomie has slipped off his chair again. His whole thing is about control, control and more control, he wants it so that only the things of his ilk are the ones that have guns, as one would say guns for ,e and not for thee. Bloomie needs to see a psych so he can get the meds that he needs. If bloomie want to get rid of guns then he can start with his own security detachment he can let them go and do without, other people do and they are just fine.

    7. If we believe what that fool is saying then we are just like him. He is a worthless Anti-Gun Nut who feel’s people don’t need a weapon.

    8. What a coincidence Mr Bloomingidiot! Just as you think law-abiding citizens shouldn’t have guns, we the people think most government agency employees shouldn’t have guns. When the federal government’s alphabet agencies reduce their arms, maybe the public will too.

    9. If Bloomberg didn’t inject himself into the ‘gun debate’ he’d just be another rich Liberal arse. Then again he already is!
