Bloomberg Calls Republican ‘Stupid’ Over Desire For Teacher To Have Gun


Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said that he wished principal Dawn Hachsprung had a gun when she confronted the shooter on Friday. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at a press conference to unveil a new campaign by “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” that it was a ‘stupid’ thing to say and then went on to talk like guns have a mind of their own, stating, “I don’t know what the gun would’ve done.”

Rep. Gohmert told Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace, “Hearing the heroic stories of the principal, lunging, trying to protect – Chris, I wish to God she had had an M-4 in her office, locked up so when she heard gunfire, she pulls it out and she didn’t have to lung heroically with nothing in her hands, but she takes him out, takes his head off before he can kill those precious kids.”

Monday Bloomberg responded to Gohmert’s comments stating, “You know, there are people who say dumb things and then there are people who say stupid things. I don’t know what the gun would’ve done.”

I’m honestly lauging at Bloomberg’s comments as he says people say dumb and stupid things and follows it with one of the most stupid comments I can think of on the subject.

“I can just tell you that if you have a gun in your house, you are something like 22 times as likely to shoot a friend or a relative as somebody trying to assault you,” he said. “Guns kill people. They don’t belong in schools. They don’t belong on campuses. They don’t belong in the hands of minors, or people with psychiatric problems or people with drug abuse problems, or people with criminal records.”

No, Mr. Bloomberg, people kill people and if you take guns from murderers, they’ll use knives, and if you take their knives, they’ll use pencils. That is just the way the criminal mind works. But if you take guns from law abiding citizens and access to those guns, then you leave them defenseless against people who care nothing about your laws.

Bloomberg said that the time for talking about gun control is over and that it is “time to stop this carnage.” He echoed Barack Obama’s words when he added, “no matter the political ramifications.”

“Somehow or other we’ve come to think that getting re-elected is more important than saving lives, that political power is more important than saving lives, that partisan politics is more important than saving lives,” he said. “Enough.”

Well, you know I wish our side had the same kind of passion and determination no matter what the political ramifications are. We certainly need articulate conservatives in office to push back the tide of encroaching liberalism, especially in the midst of what is taking place with regards to the Second Amendment being under attack.
