You May Get Your Chance to Vote Michael Bloomberg for President

Opinion By Larry Keane

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- If you thought Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s public pledge to confiscate AR-15’s was bold and shocking, buckle up for billionaire Michael Bloomberg. He’s again toying with a run at the White House and if he does, he’s already poured millions into turning elections into anti-gun referendums.

This run would be his all-out blitzkrieg against guns.

The former New York City mayor, who has switched political parties quickly as the winds shift, is reportedly reconsidering his previous decision to sit out the Democrat primary. He reportedly sees an opportunity to wedge his way in as former Vice President Joe Biden has been stumbling on the national stage and slipping in the polls as U.S. Sen. Elizabeth “Faux-ahontas” Warren gains political market share.

Gun Control Cash Cow

The 77-year-old never gave up visions of pushing his anti-gun campaign on the national stage. He funds the gun control groups Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety. Everytown is leading gun control campaign spending at nearly $1 million. The group pledged $2.5 million to flip Virginia state elections for Democrats who will pass a far-left gun control platform favored by Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to ban modern sporting rifles, standard capacity magazines, suppressors and institute one-gun-a-month sales quotas.

Bloomberg’s also targeting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) because he won’t bring up constitutionally suspect gun control bills that won’t reduce crime and make our communities safer, but they will limit Second Amendment freedoms.  He is also targeting Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, both Florida Republicans, Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and John Cornyn (R-Tex.) who authored the Fix NICS legislation that actually improved background checks.

Just Waiting

Bloomberg’s presidential apparatus was never really dismantled, as it turns out. Even while he made his public announcement in March that he would not run for president, he’s kept advisors close and on his payroll. He previously pledged to spend $100 million on his presidential aspirations. That’s on top of the $500 million he dangled to defeat President Donald Trump in 2020, whether Bloomberg jumped into the race or not. That’s not much for the man who’s reportedly worth $50 billion.

That money buys a lot of anti-gun airtime. If Bloomberg jumps in, expect yet another candidate to call for confiscating the more than 16 million lawfully-owned modern sporting rifles in America today. Magazine bans will be at the forefront. Gun rationing would be real. Biden’s clueless ideas of so-called “smart gun” technology requirement for guns would be adopted and Andrew Yang’s gun licensing scheme to exercise basic America rights wouldn’t be so implausible.

In fact, none of the gun control or confiscation plans would be far-fetched. They’d just be far outside Americans’ price range.

I might get my chance? Just the thought that I would ever vote for Bloomberg is insane. This is the idiot who banned the sale of single cigarettes and, attempted to ban the “Big Gulp”. He would most likely try to ban guns on his first day in office. If I thought that someone like him had a ghost of a chance, I’d be emptying my savings account, buying all the guns and ammo I could and, burying caches all over the place.

I don’t know how, but we’ve got to get every gun owner in America to vote. Included in those votes, we’ve got to wake up those long time “I always vote Democrat, because they’re for the working man” people to reality. Democrats are not for the working man. They buy votes by taking the working man’s taxes and handing them over to the man who doesn’t want to work, for his vote.

@Bowserb46 Depends on which type of gun owner you are aiming for. If you are talking about second amendment supporters, then pick a candidate who sticks to the constitution no matter what, and is willing to go down in flames if that is what it takes to defend the constitution. If you want Fudds who want to redefine what “Rights” are so that a majority can dictate what is allowable or “needed” based on an ever changing public opinion, then put up a milk toast candidate that will betray or violate the Second Amendment group. That’s what you have to… Read more »

Warning! Democrat Joke follows. If you can not take it, don’t read it: “Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My 5 year-old grandson asked if he could say grace.” As we bowed our heads he said, “God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food and I would thank you even more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty, peace & justice for all. Amen!” Along with the laughter and nodding of heads from the other customers nearby. I heard a woman at the next table remark, “That’s what’s wrong with this… Read more »

I applaud you on knowing the politically correct time to publicly share such a joke, and then ignoring it entirely. 🙂

Free speech for the win my friend. Thanks for the interlude into a moment of humor.

I am really happy to see Gummings gone! Anyone who saw him in ANY hearings saw quickly he was a mean, nasty prejudice son of a bitch who truly hated anyone who was not a left wing/socialist like himself. GOOD RIDDANCE!

@Wayne, I really hope that Bloomers thinks all that, and spends his entire fortune seeking the presidency, and splitering the democrat national socialist party in the process. But I am sure that he will never sit in the oval office.

@StWayne As it sits right now, I don’t have a Presidential candidate I can vote for. That being said, I will never respect His authority or anything else about him. I will not comply with anything he wants to do, my oath is to the Constitution, not the president. Knocking on my door won’t do him any good, and attempting to force me will only get me to give him a response with one finger. And no, its not the hand gesture that so many car pilots like to signal with. On that cheery note, here’s a toast to liberty.

@Will, I think Maryland has a Repub governor, so this influence peddling democrat will be replaced by an influence peddling repub, temporarily. The only loser is the “lobbyists” that had paid Cummings in advance.

So WTF is going on with his pervert friends investigation? Epstein the child raper and this a-hole must have left evidence, whitenesses. I don’t care if that scum is dead the longer crap like this drags on the more evidence seems to just disappear. The Dems sure love playing dirty, why isn’t anyone else? This guy needs to be dragged through the mud big time. There is no way I’m going to bow to high chancellor buttberg.

Unfortunately this state is done for and has been for the last few decades. Nothing but loud mouthed Dems. Wasting taxpayers money and raising taxes every year. It’s sad because it’s really a beautiful state but I don’t care how beautiful a state is when it’s as corrupt as it is. And yes, the cops here are some of the worst in the nation. They all think they are better than the citizens, they all are on permanent power trips and break more laws than a lot of criminals. This will be one of the state’s that many people will… Read more »
