Bloomberg’s ‘Epidemic Of Dishonesty’ includes his Own Anti-Gun Efforts

BELLEVUE, WA – -(Ammoland.com)- When billionaire anti-gun former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg launched a tirade during Rice University’s graduation ceremonies over the weekend about an “epidemic of dishonesty” in the nation’s capital, he could easily have been talking about the gun prohibition movement he largely finances, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

“Bloomberg criticized what he called ‘an endless barrage of lies,’” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “But that’s exactly what we’ve seen from the gun prohibition lobby, exemplified by Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety. From deceptively combining suicide and homicide data to inflate what they call the number of ‘gun violence’ victims, to inflating the number of school shootings which the Washington Post called ‘flat wrong,’ and suggesting that raising the age limit for purchasing firearms and banning modern sporting rifles will somehow prevent mass shootings, the gun control campaign has been built on layers of false promises.

“Anti-gun lobbying groups even claimed that 40 percent of gun transactions occurred without a background check,” he added, “until research proved that claim to be bogus.

“Each gun control failure has been followed by demands for even more restrictions on law-abiding citizens,” he continued. “Each new erosion of fundamental Second Amendment rights is sold to the public as a preventive measure, until the next tragedy occurs, followed by more demands that gun owners give up a little more privacy and a little more liberty.”

Bloomberg also warned about a trend toward “alternate realities” during his speech. Gottlieb suggested that the billionaire former mayor might be an expert on that subject.

“Behind all of the gun control rhetoric,” Gottlieb observed, “elitists like Bloomberg, with their billion-dollar bankrolls and armed private security continue their campaigns for public disarmament from the safety of walled estates or gated communities. Nothing more accurately reflects an ‘alternate reality’ than the one enjoyed by people like Bloomberg, who live behind walls or gates, and have their own bodyguards.

“Suggesting that surrendering a basic right of self-defense and the tools to protect one’s home and family will somehow move average citizens closer to the idyllic security of the rich and famous is the most dishonest thing of all,” he said.

    1. I never saw anyone look so stupid as he does in the garb he is wearing. When he does die they will have to screw him in the ground because he is that crooked.

    2. He is an old style East European communist who did well with the capitalist system. Nothing more complicated than that–well okay, he votes democrat too..

    3. His money is his power, and since his money is corrupt, so is his power. Bloomie is a monomaniacal nannie with delusions of grandeur, attempting to impose his own fantasy world upon the rest of us. He’s managed to find a few useful idiots, like that Watts creature, to stump for him. She has a more shrill voice and a cachet as a “mommy” that makes a few hearts here and there bleed.

      I found the quip (I believe it was from Massad Ayoob) that the recent NRA Annual Meeting in Texas had more folks waiting in the lines for the loos than Watts-her-name had out front protecting the FACT that most people can carry guns about with them and do nothing harmful with them. Meanwhile, HerSelf, who refuses to carry her own, has numerous goons who DO carry, shadowing her whereevershe goes. It is a sure sign of her mental instability that she fails to see the cognitive dissonance in this.

    4. When they bury that asshole, the persons buried on either side will dig themselves out and leave… True elitist piece of shit !
