From The New York Post, the headline says…Bloomberg’s Gun Control Idea: Cops Go On Strike.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is an idiot and the people of New York who voted this putz back into office are idiots, too. Sorry folks, but you get what you deserve.
“I don’t understand why police officers across this country don’t stand up collectively and say we’re going to go on strike, we’re not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what’s required to keep us safe,’’ he told CNN’s Piers Morgan.
“Police officers want to go home to their families. And we’re doing everything we can to make their job more difficult, but more importantly, more dangerous, by leaving guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them and letting people who have those guns buy things like armor piercing bullets.’’
Earlier in the day, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie snidely suggested that Hizzoner has been using the victims of the Colorado movie massacre as “political pawns.”
“Can we at least get through the initial grief and tragedy for these families before we start making them political pawns?” said Christie, whose name has been floated as a possible veep candidate for one of Bloomberg’s targets, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.
“I am a little bit disturbed by the politicians who in the immediate aftermath of this type of tragedy try to grandstand on it, and I’m not going to be one of those people,” Christie said.
The governor didn’t mention the mayor by name. But it was clear whom he meant — Bloomberg has been the most visible public figure in his criticism of both President Obama and Romney for their steadfast refusals to talk about gun control in the wake of the bloodbath.
