Bloomberg on Unarmed Sandy
Hook Principal: "I Don´t Know
What A Gun Would Have Done"

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/17/2012 1:48:07 PM

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who politicized the Sandy Hook tragedy within hours last Friday, just wrapped up a press conference announcing new plans to fight gun violence and to counter the National Rifle Association with his own Super PAC. Bloomberg was asked by a reporter to respond to Rep. Louie Gohmert´s comments over the weekend that he wished the principal of the school, who died trying to take down shooter Adam Lanza, had a gun. Bloomberg responded by saying, "There are dumb statements and then there are stupid statements.....

Comments:
That statement perfectly illustrates the insanity coming from these self-righteous leftists. Who made them the arbitor of everything that is supposedly right for us?

Gun Control is a theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.

Bloomberg is over his head in a parking lot puddle...

Someone needs to explain to Mayor Mike what a gun, with proper training & accessibility, could have done.

Gun control is like lowering the speed limit to prevent bank robbers from escaping. Only libtard idiots such as ´Nanny´ Bloomberg fail to see this.

Well, Nanny Bloomberg, there was an incident when two thugs came into an internet cafe with robbery and who knows what else on their minds. Too bad for them, there was a senior citizen who had a gun - concealed carry - and he knew how to use it. The thugs were wounded, and later arrested and the patrons of the cafe were not harmed.

That´s what a gun in the hands of a law abiding citizen can do

Spectacular intro paragraph! Love the ending ellipses...

After - ´Bloomberg responded by saying, "There are dumb statements and then there are stupid statements.....´

Ninety percent of readers would obviously finish that pontification with ´....and I have a solid history of uttering both...´

Rock on Bloomberg. You stick to your soda-pop-cop act, Obama can stick to ignoring Chi-town murder stats, and both of you might want to reflect on the fact that Team Obama/Holder *killed* more effective background checks in order to ´facilitate´ re-election.

And an *excellent* article on National Review Online - ´The Facts about Mass Shootings´.

Of course ´facts´ are wasted on liberals, but it´s fun poking ´em with ´em...

Unarmed persons are often helpless when faced with a "man (woman) with a gun", whether the armed offender is a "civilian" or an agent of the people who call themselves "government". Save your breath trying to talk to people like Mr. Bloomberg. They prefer "citizens" to be vulnerable (unarmed), docile, polite, and properly appreciative of their "betters" (such as Mr. Bloomberg).

Well we know what happened without the Principal or any other adult in the school, having a gun.
Criminals are going to get guns because you can´t un-invent the gun. They aren´t hard to make, and if you can´t even keep drugs out of the country, what makes you think you can keep guns out. Look at Britain. Some of the harshest and draconian gun laws in the world and gun violence is skyrocketing.

We want to know how many men with guns are on Mayor Bloomberg´s Security Detail and we want the the New York City Council and the New York State Legislature to de-fund and dis-band Mayor Bloomberg´s Security Detail and re-allocate the resources to elementary school security. And, we want it now, preferably beginning on a voluntary basis from Major Bloomberg himself.

Hold your breath waiting for the f´ing hypocrites to take this action.

I don´t believe in gun control other then prudent steps like background checks that are effective to keep crazy people and criminals from gaining access to guns which we obviously don´t have now.

But common sense will tell you that the vast majority of elementary school teachers, like nurses and psychologists, are not people who are wired for, or have any desire, to become trained in using firearms.

In that respect schools would be much safer if they employed police officers who are especially trained to deal with young people to provide armed security inside the schools. If that had been the case, the Connecticut perpetrator would have been almost immediately challenged by an armed and trained police officer as he was shooting out the apparently locked glass entry door at the school. You also have to figure that if he he knew that he was going to encounter an armed police officer as he entered the school, that he might not have tried out his evil school mass shooting plan in the first place.

Even if she just got off a couple of rounds and missed before he shot her, his mindset would have changed drastically.

To go from shooting lots of unarmed kids, to any adult there possibly being armed, he may very well have high tailed it out of that school at that instant.

Proof number 87,255,189 that lie-berals are simply incapable of understanding logic, reason or simple facts. They only understand feelings, and this just feels to Bloomberg like he must be right.

You don´t know what a gun would have done? Well, in the first place the gun by itself would have done nothing. It needs a trained human to operate it. And since you appear to be intellectually challanged, I´ll make it easy for you. You know what the gun did to those poor little kids!? Well, thats also what a gun in the hands of a trained teacher could have done to the bad guy. Its not rocket science you moron.

Okay then Bloomberg, I throw out the argument that we should then disarm everyone, including all police, all government officials, the CIA, FBI, Secret Service, and ALL public or private security personnel... and I mean every last gun, period. No one has guns regardless of position, rank, or status. If all the guns are outlawed and gone and guns do nothing according to this monumental idiot, then why do your personal security detail need guns? Less talk, more action you castrated weakling!! Put your money where your mouth is you sad sack of puss!!

Throw that argument in his face and see how his entitled,power grubbing, "let them eat cake" class squirms. They won´t defend themselves for fear of being labelled unsophisticated and "conservative" but they sure as hell like having big unsophisticated, conservative men with big black scary guns watching their miserable backsides. Hypocrites!!

If the principal and several teachers had been armed and trained, the worst that could have happened is 27 people killed. Thats the worst. There would probably have been a lot less. People as stupid as nanny Bloombutt are total idiots. Unfortunately they are allowed to walk among us.

I sort of agree on one point with the tiny mayor. Some people should not have guns. Most actors seem too emotionally unstable, and perhaps the bodyguards that loom over the pipsqueak mayor. How about giving YOUR bodyguards non lethal means of defense? Pepper spray or tasers, mayor? Set an example for once in your life.

Having a firearm should be a sobering experience. If the door person or Principal at some schools can´t handle the idea of lethal force, at least take responsibility for your gun free ´zone´ with multiple layers of hard to defeat protection, locks and spray areas and finally tasers in every secure area.

Bloomberg is a professional politician, what more do you need to know? Of course he wouldn´t know what a gun would do. Cheney and Ryan could let him know how that works however. But then those two don´t speak to lunatics if they can help it.

By the way, take our guns, then we will all break out the crossbows to shoot the criminals who will be the only ones left that have guns. Like Australia and Great Britain.

I heard Sen. Feinstein say earlier " I have spoken with people in the know about these assault rifles and they say it´s game over when someone has one of these". Then I heard the president of national teachers association say something similar - how can teachers protect their students from someone with an assault rifle? These two scholars don´t realize it but they have made our case for us.

Obesity is a national problem and results in countless unnecessary medical costs and deaths. Clearly, we need to ban forks, knives and other eating utensils. If everyone was forced to use straws and chop sticks the national obesity problem would be solved.

I am just being facetious, but don´t mention this idea in front of Bloomberg because he will want to do it.

For starters, someone with a gun could have, at the very least, restricted the shooters movements. Just a single round fired in his direction would have slowed him down and had him looking for cover giving the cops time to show up.

Mr. Totalitarian Mayor Wannabe,

Statistically speaking, the use of a gun in defense of the students and teachers at Sandy Hook would have meant approximately 17 fewer victims and 17 more survivors. A little further back, it would have meant 22 more survivors of the Virginia Tech attack in 2007.

And that assumes those attacks would have occurred. The known presence of defensive weapons prevents some 80% of potential mass murder attacks (predators like soft targets).

All told, if we had 100 undefended attacks that killed five people apiece (500 total dead), but prevented 80% of them because defensive weapons were present, and reduced actual casualties at the remaining attacks by the documented 64% rate, those attacks would result in 460 fewer dead than if no guns were present.

Your flippant disregard of the probability that these 17 lives could have been saved (and perhaps even more) says much about the state of your personal morality and shows it severely lacking in true and honest compassion and humanity.

Since, in your studied opinion, you don´t know what a gun would have done because they are apparently useless as defensive weapons, I recommend you disarm your own security detail of their guns, and stop carrying your own.

Sincerely,

The United States Constitution
Second Amendment

Gah! What a flippin´ stooge!

I´ll tell you, Mayor Nanny (apologies to actual nannies), what it would have done:

1. the principal might have shot the guy and stop the whole thing immediately
2. the principal might have scared the guy away (that does happen more often than not)
3. the principal may have caused the guy to shoot himself on the spot (that also happens a lot)
4. the principal might have been shot, but then the shooter has to wonder who else in the school might have a gun so he decides to either kill himself or take it all someplace else.

If the principal had had a gun, it is more likely than not that lives would have been saved. Possibly a whole room full of kids.

My goodness. Is he daft or what? To other principals and teachers who somehow have access to a gun, message to you: This WILL happen again.

Instructions as follows:

1) See crazy man in your school brandishing weapons (oh yes, knives, samurai swords, guns).
2) Crazy man means business and will kill kids. Are you weavering? Then remember Colorado, and Virginia Tech, heck, even China. If still not sure, you have now Sandy Hook to convince you.
3) Take out your weapon and shoot right between the eyes because he may have a vest. Keep firing until he is flat on the ground.

I think Bloomberg´s body guards have exactly the same intructions. Jerky.

Change the title to read:

Trust me, when it comes down to me or thee, any employee in that school would have made the decision to shoot to protect themselves and those children.

Facebook removes my post about

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
