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.

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.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer: One teacher calls it the "new normal" for southwest Philadelphia´s Bartram High School: a massive brawl in the cafeteria, where students punched and stomped each other, and even attacked school police; firecrackers set off in the building; and the student who fractured the skull of a "conflict resolution specialist" is once again roaming the halls, just two weeks after the attack. Insiders told the newspaper, the larger problem at the 1,100-student school "is the continued culture of chaos and disregard for authority." According to the newspaper, four additional Philadelphia and school police officers will be at the school

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The number of major federal regulations issued in the first five years of the Obama administration was 153.2% higher than during the first five years of the Bush administration, according to data from the Heritage Foundation. “In the first five years of President Obama’s Administration, 157 major federal regulations were issued. By comparison, only 62 major federal regulations were issued during the first five years of the George W.

How do you get from 5 million Obamacare enrollees to 7.1 million Obamacare enrollees in two weeks? You start the applications yourself. Health and Human Services was mailing out letters notifying certain Americans that they had already started a healthcare coverage application on their behalf. HHS had started the applications for them. The Shark Tank reported: News of the HHS letter was first mentioned by a listener of the popular “Daybreak with Drew Steele” Show on Fox 92.5, which is out of Fort Myers, Florida. After his radio show concluded, another listener emailed Steele telling him about receiving the same

Finally, someone has come up with a way to settle the debate over climate change: Put the people on the wrong side of the argument in cages. A writer for the website Gawker recently penned a self-described “rant” on the pressing need to arrest, charge, and imprison people who “deny” global warming. In fairness, Adam Weinstein doesn’t want mass arrests. (Besides, in a country where only 44 percent of Americans say there is “solid evidence” of global warming and it’s mostly due to human activity, you can’t round up every dissenter.) Fact-checking scientists are spared. So is “the man on the

More than a dozen Republican lawmakers are pushing the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider asserting regulatory authority over streams and wetlands amid intense backlash from farm groups over the agency´s proposed water rule. In a letter Thursday, the GOP senators faulted the EPA for announcing a proposed rule last week before the government´s peer-reviewed scientific assessment was fully complete. They are calling on the government to withdraw the rule or give the public six months to review it, rather than the three months being provided. The senators´ move puts them among several groups -- from farmers and land developers to

U.S. employers added jobs at a solid pace in March in the latest sign that the economy is rebounding from a weak stretch brought on by a harsh winter. The Labor Department says employers added 192,000 jobs, slightly below February´s total of 197,000. Employers also added a combined 37,000 more jobs in February and January than previously estimated. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 6.7 percent. But a half-million Americans started looking for work last month, and most of them found jobs. The increase in job-seekers is a sign that they are more optimistic about their prospects. March´s job gain

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

The three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend. Jan Iverson created an organization called “The Difference Matters” to protest Mrs. Clinton’s quest for the presidency, because of her role in Benghazi. “She is not welcome

Immigration reform advocates are fond of citing broad support for their cause. But in fact the coalition behind the Senate Gang of Eight comprehensive reform bill is fragile and loosely cobbled together. How could Big Labor and the Chamber of Commerce and the tech world and Big Agriculture all unite behind one bill? Very tentatively. It wouldn´t take much to break the coalition apart. And if that happens, the effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform could blow up, not just for the moment, but for some time to come. And there are signs that is exactly what is occurring now.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

After opening up to Closer Weekly about her milestone birthday, revealing she´s still very much in demand, with scripts pouring in all the time, the silver-haired beauty appeared as sprightly as
