Bloomberg’s $50 million attack on 2nd Amendment

Anti-gun leftist, feds & even your doctor want your weapons

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is not letting any grass grow under his resoled loafers now that he’s unemployed. Instead he‘s refocusing his efforts at restricting guns in America, and pledging at least $50 million to accomplish his goal.

Bloomberg, reputedly worth over $31 billion dollars —- ranking 10th on Forbes’ list of America’s Richest People —- has unsuccessfully tried in the past to wage a national campaign against guns. Now the Second Amendment restrictionist is launching a new gun control organization, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety,’ that he hopes can rival the mega status of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Bloomberg’s bottom line is expansion of background checks to prevent increasing numbers of law-abiding citizens from owning guns. He’s working hand-in-glove with the Obama administration which is stealthily at work creating the infrastructure for a universal gun registry. In budget proposals known as “Program Increases” for the FBI, Attorney General Eric Holder says: “This program enhancement will double the capacity of the existing NICS —- National Instant Check System.  These expansions are vital in ensuring that the NICS system can support a Universal Background Check requirement, which is expected to double gross NICS transactions.” Gun Owners of America‘s alert continues here.

Everytown’s mission statement, claims the effort is “a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.”

Then comes the tirade:

Speaking of the NRA, Bloomberg bizarrely rants: “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you, If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.’ We’ve got to make them afraid of us,” Bloomberg bellowed.

And if you think mature adult gun owners are safe from this lunacy, think again.

Health care attorney Marshall Kapp, director of the Center for Innovative Collaboration in Medicine and Law at Florida State University Medical School is of the opinion that doctors who treat older patients should routinely ask whether they have access to guns. He defends speaking with family members about confiscating weapons, saying “the physician’s right to engage in firearm-related inquiries could actually be characterized as a legally enforceable obligation.”

“If families are unwilling to cooperate, doctors may need to turn to the law for help,” Kapp said. “Failure to address firearm safety for seniors can be considered a form of neglect that should be reported to the Adult Protective Services agency since it arguably constitutes elder mistreatment.”

Kapp’s shocking report, “Geriatric Patients, Firearms, and Physicians,” was published September 2013 in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

    Multi-billionaire Michael Bloomberg is obviously able to buy a lot of things, but he can’t buy the hearts and minds of law abiding American citizens who recognize the rights given them in the Second Amendment of our U.S. Constitution, which protects the right of citizens to keep and bear arms . It clearly defines the natural rights of self-defense, resistance to oppression, as well as the civic duty to act in concert in defense of the state. Wealth beyond measure may have bought him the mayor’s job in the most populous city in the United States, but it doesn’t give him the ability to obliterate the Constitution to conform to his liberal ideals.

    Concerning Marshall Kapp’s views regarding confiscation of senior citizen’s guns, remember that middle age is 40, not 50. Few of us live to be 100. This overreach affects us all. I clicked on the link to his bio, and Kapp clearly fits the profile of senior citizen. As the liberal he obviously is, he likely has no problem with being unarmed. I, on the other hand, most certainly do. This arrogant educrat epitomizes the Obama administration’s extremist mindset. Imagine paying good money to have your child in a class taught by this radical leftist who disrespects individual rights as well as the Constitution. Some lawyer!!

  3. Braveheart says:

    Michael Bloomberg is a liberal megalomaniac whose outsized ego matches his bank account. I notice that even his extreme wealth wasn’t enough to keep his former wife, Susan Brown, around. I don’t begrudge him the money he earned, but as a citizen of this great nation, I definitely resent the preposterously left wing views he wants to impose on the rest of us by virtue of his wealth.

  4. Stanford says:

    Pertaining to senior citizens owning guns: This stealth gun control measure leaves the decision-making process entirely in the hands of physicians, whose choices will clearly be biased based upon each’s personal beliefs about guns. These decisions are not based on anything quantifiable or measurable. There are no standards, no testing, or no qualifiers that can be implemented. With this outrageous ideology, older Americans can lose their right to defend themselves based on nothing more than a liberal’s arbitrary opinion.

  5. Seen it All says:

    I see I fall into the category of senior citizen as defined by Marshall Kapp.

    My message to Mr. Kapp: I would dedicate the last ounce of my (still considerable) physical strength and mental acumen to defeating his outrageously bizarre views on firearms. I am a professional and a political conservative and strongly advise this bozo who purports to be a legal scholar that he needs to reacquaint himself with the legal principles defined in the U.S. Constitution.

  6. Orion says:

    Bloomberg is a politically opportunistic whore, willing to be or do whatever it takes to push his liberal agenda. He switches political parties the way the rest of us might try out toothpaste brands. First he was a committed “lifelong” Democrat, until he thought it benefited him to reregister as a Republican for a few years. Now he‘s a registered “Independent.” The man has neither a core nor actual values. Compare the Platforms of the Republican and Democrat political parties to understand how different they are. Switching between them for someone who actually holds to specific principles on fundamental issues would be impossible.

    So, our freedoms are for sale and Bloomberg is the highest bidder?
