Gun Control

And if there is ever one thing that I can agree on with that Mayor of the city of New York as one of those citizens of the world, it would be the following New York Post Article titled “Mayor Bloomberg slams White House on gun control: report”. And the article says something about that the issue of gun control is not being addressed by that president of those United States of America, maybe. And I believe guns, the images, glorification, marketing and advertising of guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. If only guns could be banished from every human being on planet earth. Is another world possible. And this following article speaks for itself in its entirety from that New York Post website, and I thought to repost it because, hey, it’s less writing sometimes. And what, if anything, does this have to do with a No Police State?

President Obama is under the gun when it comes to Mayor Bloomberg and his crusade against illegal weapons.

Bloomberg, generally considered a White House ally, put Obama on notice after he fired off a letter to the White House this month where he reportedly accused the president of dragging his feet when it comes to gun control, according to a report today.

In the March 3 letter sent from Bloomberg’s coalition, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the mayor points to a separate report the group sent the Obama administration last August, which laid out 40 recommendations to “improve enforcement of existing gun laws,” according to The Huffington Post.

The letter was co-signed by Boston Mayor Tom Menino.

“We appreciate the … consideration of the report, but this is an urgent matter: further delay will almost certainly result in the needless loss of innocent lives, including many children. Mr. President, the time has come for action,” the mayors wrote, according to the letter obtained by The Huffington Post.

The White House did not immediately have a comment in regards to the letter.

Bloomberg has been an ardent fighter for gun control, blaming illegal handguns smuggled into New York State for shootings that take place in the city. He has also taken on the National Rifle Association in the past.

“Over the past six months, approximately 6,000 Americans have been gunned down in intentional acts of violence. The 40 recommendations in our Blueprint, many of which could be enacted immediately, offer the best hope we have for making our country safer over the next six months — and the years ahead.”

The Huffington Post report comes after the city conducted a sting operation last year where it caught unlicensed gun dealers selling weapons to undercover investigators who admitted they couldn’t pass background checks.

The stings were conducted at seven gun shows in Tennessee, Ohio and Nevada. Those states are among the many that permit private unlicensed dealers, known as “occasional sellers,” to sell weapons at gun shows without conducting background checks.

Nine states, including New York, have passed laws to close the loophole, requiring background checks on at least all handgun purchases at gun shows.
