Bloomberg is a creep and I can't believe he would even try this.

Alex Jones brought up a good point on his December 17, 2012 show that most people won't talk about. Listen to the first hour of the podcasted show.

Why are hard leftist and national spotlighted politicians like Diane Feinstein, Chuck Schummer, and Michael Bloomberg -all part of the Israeli lobby in America- trying to disarm America.

They are the loudest voices going after the second ammendmant right now in America but openly lobby for US taxpayers to arm Israelis so they can defend themselves. And yes, Israel has a right to defend itself but so do Americans.

The Connetecuit shootings were a horrific tragedy but going after the second ammendmant is not the answer.

These mass shootings always happen where there are strict gun control laws and the public is disarmed -remember criminals will always find access to guns whether they are outlawed or not and innocent civilians are usually the victims of mass shootings.

The answer to these mass shootings is to train and arm responsable US civilians including trusted school faculty on how to defend students from any crazies that show up until cops arrive. We need less guns in the hands of criminals and more guns in the hands of innocent law abiding citizens who are trained how to responsibly own and use firearms.

Isnt't it wierd how after the election all of a sudden all these shootings take place and now gun control is at the top of the headlines. You have the NFL (Bob Costas), news media figures, and national politicians now engaging in a full court press for gun control.

Look how the corporate media is promoting that guns be taken away so Americans citizens can't defend themselves from all forms of criminality.

The media is being absolutely transparent in its attempt to brainwash Americans into believeing that we don't have the right to defend ourselves with the second ammendmant. This should alarm all American citizens given the fact our government has been seized by Communist revolutionaries backed with offshore corporate fascist money.

These bought out political revolutionaries within our illegitimiate federal government are now aggitating the rest of the world and garnering hatred against America from countries like Russia, China, South America, and the Middle East.

The type of facism that is now being pushed in America was used in Stalanist Russia, Cuba, Nazi Germany, Fascist Argentina, Corrupt Mexico, to name a few examples. It's the same gameplan now being used on America.

And every time a country was destroyed and remade into a failed state/dictatorship it started by disarming the general public so people could get bullied by the tyrants into further authoritarianism with no way to fight back.

Now is not the time to disarm America. Pull your money out of the major banks so they can't create derivatives with it and put it in local credit unions or small banks. Call out/ vote out politicians that want to disarm America and boycott the corporate media by turning to non corporate news.

If these politicians want gun control why don't they get rid of their personal entourage of taxpayer paid for armed security/bodygaurds. They want gun control for citizens, not themselves.

Americans can put a stop to this tyrany as most people are now waking up from their trances because the tyranny is so in your face.

The New World Order lackeys must be nuts to think this gameplan will work in America for very long being this blatant. Americans of all political persuasion will never disarm -we are not stupid. Liberal or conserative we just love our freedom too damn much.

so now it is "racsits" to try to stop people turning themselves into land whales? I know Bloomberg is an idiot, banning larger magazines won't stop shootings , but this response from the NAACP is amazing. I expect all the blacks will have a "million man march" if he tries to stop people having illegal handguns in their waistbands.

Funny how people get up and protest because the government is regulating freaking poison soda, yet they shut their mouths when the government speaks about regulating or banning guns from our hands; guns which can save our freaking lives one day if/when a criminal attacks us... which happens every day, THOUSANDS of times a day.

Shows how backward many of these peoples' minds truly are.

I believe you've a right to drink all the [poison] soda you choose, of course, but I still find it amazing how you'd hold that more important than gun ownership, which can be used to defend your very life, and your family. Police use them to defend themselves on a daily basis. How dare you think police have a right to self defense, yet citizens do not? The citizens that pay their salaries!

These criminal elite truly has done an effective job in brainwashing the dumbed down sheeple.

Always disgusting for me to witness this.

And over 100,000 people DIE from medications' side effects each year in this country; medications correctly prescribed by doctors; medications correctly taken by patients; medications made by those disgusting pharmaceutical companies.

Yet the government is aiming at soda instead?
