Does Mike Bloomberg’s life matter more than yours? That’s the reasonable takeaway for most Americans when they examine Bloomberg’s support of strict gun control measures, while at the same time surrounding himself with armed bodyguards.
Recently, a Virginia voter named Clarke Chitty asked Bloomberg a question on this hypocrisy, stating, “How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines that you seek to ban the common citizen from owning? Does your life matter more than mine, or my family’s, or these people’s?”
Bloomberg’s answer did seem to confirm that he does, in fact, believe he is more important than you, your family, and the common people of the United States the Bill of Rights was written to protect. He told Chitty, “Look, I probably get 40 or 50 threats every week, OK, and some of them are real. That just happens when you’re the mayor of New York City or you’re very wealthy and if you’re campaigning for president of the United States. You get lots of threats. So, I have a security detail, I pay for it all myself, and … they’re all retired police officers who are very well trained in firearms.”
So according to Bloomberg, it’s ok for him to have bodyguards because he’s richer and more famous than you.
So what is Bloomberg’s plan for your guns? Well, you won’t be able to buy a new AR-15, and if you already have one, you’ll be required to register it with the government. Bloomberg’s campaign site says “Mike will reinstate the federal ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines; current assault weapons owners will be allowed to keep their guns, but will have to report them to federal officials.”
The hypocritical Mini Mike doesn’t trust you and the common people with guns. Why should you trust him with the presidency?
Question: “How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that’s likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines that you seek to ban the common citizen from owning?”
