Speaking to the Aspen Institute on February 6, Michael Bloomberg said cities should ban young minority males from owning guns, both as an effort to reduce crime and to keep those minority males “alive.”

According to The Aspen Times, Bloomberg addressed a variety of topics, and after commenting on poverty and education, he discussed guns. The Times reported that he said, “Cities need to get guns out of [the] … hands” of persons who are “male, minority, and between the ages of 15 and 25.”

He claimed that “95 percent of all murders fall into this category” and that taking guns away from them will not only reduce crime, but will “keep them alive.”

    I don’t guess that he understands that no matter what if a person wants a gun they can buy one on just about any street corner. So denying young males access to any weapons is luducrust. So now what Bloomberg?>

    I wonder how that pompous bastard (Bloomberg) squared that philosophy with the second amendment? I don’t recall anything other than it applying to ALL American citizens. Could it be that he in all his arrogant splendor, has not had the time to read the Bill of Rights?

  • AmericanIcon says:

    Not to belabor the obvious, but it’s already illegal for the individuals he’s targeting to own guns…not to mention the fact that what those guns are used for is also against the law. This is nothing more than starting with one ‘group’ – which is already an easy target – and depriving them of one specific right, making it easier to justify taking more rights from more ‘groups’, until only those the self-proclaimed ‘elite’ have complete control of what the rest of the population may be ‘allowed’.

      Mostly these younger men are Syrians and illegals crossing the southern border from who knows where. Ask Obumer how many single young men have come here he ordered to take over the country? we aren’t stupid Obumer, we know what they are for and we will take them out along our route.

    I suggest that this BLOOMBERG guy take an honest look at the states where the most crime by firearms is, is also the states with the most “gun control”, Now what does this say Bloomberg?

      The most crime is committed by the govt against the tax payers if the united states.
      At the convention(republican) they said that the city should revoke all the carry permits during the convention. What a stupid statement. They are saying that even though you have the right given by the constitution, we can eliminate that right for some whenever we decide to. Who the hell do they think they are? OOPs I might find out if I speak out.
