Mayor Michael Bloomberg told Piers Morgan the nation’s police officers should go on strike until all Americans surrender their weapons.
Because criminals would totally do that:
“I would take it one step further. I don’t understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up, collectively, and say, ‘We’re going to go on strike. We’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe.”
How many police officers were killed in Aurora?
Oh, yeah. Zero.
Another comment worth mentioning is regarding Bloomberg’s attack on armor piercing rounds. He’s against them:
The only reason that an armor piercing bullet, is to go through a bullet resistant vest. The only people that wear bullet resistant vests are our police officers.”
Holmes went to the midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises armed with an assault rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun and a pistol. He wore a gas mask and head-to-toe body armour, and threw two gas canisters into the crowd before he opened fire.
Bloomberg is either ignorant of the facts, or doesn’t care abut them.
Never in the history of man has the wholesale disarming of a people resulted in them being safer.
Bloomberg and Morgan live in a fantasy land, where criminals would freely surrender their firearms if only they were banned and police would protect every citizen from harm 24 hours a day.
No such world exists.
