He doesn't even want the National Guard to be armed.
“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”
From Sebastian who notes:
So for Bloomberg, even the guns wielded by our National Guard are undesirable. And how many of your towns have signed onto this radical and un-American agenda?
Well, this is a man that has bragged, erroneously, that the he has his"own army in the NYPD, whis is the seventh biggest army in the world."
And Says Uncle also notes.
Also, this one is a head-scratcher. Bloomberg won’t let the national guard in because only the NYPD should have guns. And it could lead to a police state. Uhm, have you been to NYC?Silly Chance, it's be a Police State he doesn't control.
Also Bloomberg lies. Right out. The NYPD are not the only people on the street with guns. And they're not the only people they want on the streets with guns.
NYC is May Issue, a very a very special May Issue regime. So you don't have to be in the NYPD to legally carry a gun there. You just have to have some friends in real high places.
The only people he wants to have guns are the NYPD and his well-connected cronies and chums.
In short the Baron's Men-at-arms, and Friends of the Baronial Court.
