No National Guard in NYC: Bloomberg Only Trusts NYPD with Guns

In a previous post, I suggested that we all boycott Cook County Illinois over their gun-related Leftist stupidity. Today, I get to add New York City to my list…

When I came upon this story, that the National Guard are being kept out of New York City in spite of the pleas of the Brooklyn Borough President, I thought of the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, and laughed. I laughed at the fools in NYC that elected him and are now trying to salvage their lives after Hurricane Sandy; and I laughed because this delusional statist actually thinks his position is right. You see, he cannot get past his utter loathing for firearms; a loathing so profound that the only people he trusts with guns in New York City are the officers of the NYPD. In a recent NewsBusters Story, Tom Blumer writes:

Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

What is the mayor expecting from the National Guard? Is he afraid they will run amok, looting and raping through Brooklyn? Is he afraid they will really turn the borough into a police state? This is the same Mayor who regulates how large your drink cup can be; the same mayor who supported the officers who shot and killed a number of innocent bystanders trying to kill the assailant in a shooting; the same mayor who routinely works to undermine the Second Amendment rights for all Americans, not just those unfortunate enough to live in New York. So, what we really have is a would-be totalitarian desperate to keep guns out of the hands of people who do not answer to him.
Sadly, while he is posturing like a tin-pot Mousselini (maybe he’s angling for a cabinet post in a second Obama Administration, who knows?), thousands who need the help and protection that only the National Guard can offer are going without because he does not trust the Guard with guns.
