GOP Mayor Blasts Obama on Gun Control
Michael Bloomberg, the Republican mayor of the largest city in the United States, has come out to blasting Barack Obama for not doing more to support gun control.
Of course, as I have written in the past, gun control in and of itself, does nothing to stem violence; it is a false cure for deeper social problems.
And, as I have noted in the past, Barack Obama did not campaign on gun control; in fact he promised that his Administration would do nothing in that arena.
Of course the NRA bed-wetters cannot be placated by fact and observed history. Fear, after all, is the only thing they have left to sell.
