[Video] S.E. Cupp Describes Why Bloomberg’s Gun Control Efforts Have, and Will, Fail
S.E. Cupp is a pretty awesome Second Amendment advocate that actually gets quite a bit of face time in front of the cameras, always a good thing.
During a recent panel discussion on ABC, Cupp does a great job of describing why Michael Bloomberg’s past, current, and future gun control efforts have, are and will fail,
The NRA represents law-abiding gun owners, like myself, they don’t represent criminals. They don’t event represent gun manufacturers. So why Mayor Bloomberg is turning his figurative guns on people like me when there are criminals out there seems a very strange way to go about reducing gun crime. His efforts on this issue have been measurable failures.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns has crumbled because he duped mayors into thinking they were actually going to fight illegal guns, And when they all found out actually they were going after law-abiding gun owners, they said, ‘that’s not what I want to be apart of.’ His efforts are duplicitous and they’re measurably failing.
Cupp also said that the NRA is likely high-fiving each other over Bloomberg attempting such a doomed endeavor.
Last week it was announced that Bloomberg was forming a new anti-gun group, Everytown for Gun Safety.
Bloomberg hopes to use the group to influence politics and legislation at the state and local levels as a direct challenge to the success the NRA has had at those levels.
Everytown for Gun Safety is the third financially backed anti-gun group by Bloomberg (the first two being Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense).
Bloomberg calls the new initiative a “grassroots” organization, but it is controlled and funded at the national level by Bloomberg, who is using $50 million of his own money to seed the operation (sounds just like a grassroots organization to me).
