In the area of possible and credible controls on guns, gun owners, sizes of magazines, etc.; along with all the other issues raised by this truly delicate subject, one man and his very well-funded organization has become a true stumbling block to any progress at all. The man is of course Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire mayor of New York, and his organization is ‘Mayors against illegal guns’.
I have my own view on ‘gun control’ as well as the Second Amendment, and I accept that there are probably as many views as there are Americans. But I have a small question for Mayor Bloomberg, and it is this:-
“If you wish to disarm all Americans, or even only just a few, will you start by confirming that none of your bodyguards and security men will be armed from the day that you succeed in passing any of your authoritarian ideas into law?”
