Bloomberg Uses Another Tragedy to Push Gun Control

Following the tragic mass shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Sunday, Bloomberg, in typical fashion, pushed gun control again -- this time during a speech expressing his condolences to a crowd at the Sikh Cultural Society in New York on Monday:


“There’s something else that we shouldn’t lose sight of either. Just two weeks after the tragedy in Aurora, we’ve seen another mass shooting. One in which it appears that there were some warning signs about the shooter. And still, the presidential candidates have not given the American public a plan to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people.”

We heard you the last time, Mr. Bloomberg. The problem is that gun control won’t help, but how tactful of you to bring it up in the same speech anyway. In case you missed the overwhelming response to your last call though, tougher gun laws would do nothing more than disarm law abiding citizens who in many cases, prevent violence from either occurring altogether or from escalating (even though it’s rarely reported).

While I don’t want to fully engage in this debate again, it’s worth sharing a quick segment Neil Cavuto did on gun violence after the Colorado massacre. In one example among many, Cavuto points out that Norway "has among the toughest gun laws in the planet not to mention a reputation for having among the most peaceful citizens on the planet but that didn't stop Anders Breivik from going on a rampage that left 77 2011."


So please Mr. Bloomberg, give it up. Stop exploiting tragedies for political gain. Let all the attention instead be focused where it should be – on providing support to the families and communities affected by mass shootings.
