Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York City, billionaire, desiring to rewrite the constitution, and countrywide buttinski suffered a major “gun control” loss on Thursday in Nevada. He and his pet group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG), “spent hundreds of thousands of dollars” to buy passage of the Nevada state legislature’s bill SB 221, another dangerous piece of gun control legislation dressed up to look palatable by applying the innocuous-sounding “background check” label to it. Bloomberg lost, and lost big-time, not because of a paid opposition wading in money, but because of a viral grass-roots effort organized by average Americans provided with information by several pro-Second Amendment advocacy groups. Bloom-baby: Money can’t buy you love.
New York City’s mayor plays machine politics, thinking that his billions can be used to buy the hearts and minds of American citizens. Bloomberg is thinking top-down. He is “a founding member of the group” MAIG, so how could this group be a spontaneous offspring of concerned citizens? He’s paying mercenaries to pursue his own agenda, and the ethics of his money-pump are being investigated by Judicial Watch. He and his allies immediately concluded that the ricin-tainted letters sent to him were an effort to stop his anti-gun crusade, but the truth behind the story was that some pathetic has-been actress decided to throw a tantrum and frame her soon-to-be ex-husband. Bloomberg’s efforts are not grassroots, while the opposition to his recent Nevada campaign was grassroots.
