“...Mayor Bloomberg has gone from bluster to blackmail with his extremist gun ban campaign...He would have police officers quit their posts and abandon their public safety missions in what would amount to an exercise of national extortion...Perhaps he believes it would be better...for cops to walk off the job than to engage in illegal gun and drug transactions, as some of his own New York City police have done lately...”In case you missed the beloved mayor bloomberg-izing this, behold:
A statement issued by the CCRKBA noted that:
"...by even making the suggestion, Bloomberg might be close to violating a New York statute known as the Taylor Law. Under that 1967 law – officially titled the Public Employees Fair Employment Act – public employees and employers are prohibited from encouraging strikes by public employees..."Gottlieb added:
“...If Bloomberg is violating the law, it would not be a first for a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the anti-gun organization he founded...At least 18 members of that group have been prosecuted for various crimes, which is not a track record I’d be proud of...Obviously...Mayor Bloomberg did not think things through before he suggested this preposterous course of action. If the nation’s police were to walk off the job today, by tomorrow, American citizens would be flocking to gun stores to purchase firearms for personal protection. All his stupid statement will do is increase gun sales...Maybe Bloomberg wants to replace Barack Obama as the unofficial gun salesman of the year..."Perhaps it has now gone from "Fast and Furious" to "Hysterical and Delirious." What say YOU, Vanguards?
