New York –-( The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association calls for former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to apologize for racist remarks he made while speaking at the Aspen Institute last week.

As reported by the Aspen Times, Bloomberg stated that government needs to remove firearms from young minority males.

“Mayor Bloomberg’s statement that black males should not be allowed to have guns echos similar sentiments made by southern white supremacists in the 19th century,” said NYSRPA President Tom King.

“So called “Black Codes” were enacted by various southern states to discriminate against black Americans and maintain the system of white supremacy that made slavery possible. These included restrictions on firearms possession.”

King concluded, “If a politician said this about anything other than guns, the mainstream media would be all over them. Michael Bloomberg isn’t just any politician, he is the leading voice for gun control in America. He should be held accountable for this slander.”

We should actually thank the former mayor. He reminds us of long forgotten facts. That gun control laws were so often inspired by bigotry. In the South, to disarm Blacks. In New York State and City the Sullivan Act was aimed at the large and growing immigrant population (Irish, Polish, Italian, all Catholic, and Jews). The ‘elephant’ in the room is that Blacks are still the primary target of urban gun control. But since you can’t ever get away with such racism, you have to target everybody.

mayor Bloomberg should apologize for breathing


Are you surprised Bloomberg didn’t single out the ‘goyem’ too.


What do these minorities have to worry about. I mean, they voted for all these Liberals who they think have their best interest at heart, and will feed, clothe, and house them, without having to do a minutes worth the work for it… In other words, they have voted to make themselves slaves of the Govt.. I thought they didn’t like slavery.. They must give up their guns, and liberties, to go with the Pride they gave up for handouts, so that their Master can withdraw all those handouts, and they have no weapons to oppose their Master.. It’s all… Read more »


Bloomberg is a Republican and liberals didn’t vote for him en masse. Get your facts straight Tom and invoke your racists ideals elsewhere.

James- YOU get your facts straight. A quick look at Wikipedia informs those of us who did not already know that : Prior to 2001, Bloomberg was a Democrat. 2001-2007 He was a Republican. After 2007 he declared himself to be an Independent. Or, more fully- Bloomberg is a liberal/left/progressive statist ego-maniac rich guy who was a Democrat until 2001. He became a “fake” Republican simply to assist his race for NYC Mayor. He did not change his liberal/left/progressive statist politics, he supported Obama in his presidential race. As Mayor, he acted like the typical left/progressive rich guy- he never… Read more »
