Mayor Bloomberg, on a visit yesterday to a Sikh community in Queens, turned a moment that called for the delivery of condolences to magnificent, patriotic population of immigrant Americans into yet another opportunity for posturing and double-speak on guns.
His one-track mind:
The mayor’s hysteria on this issue is pushing him into a territory where, if he goes much further, his integrity is going to be questioned.
Says crime not guns is his concern, but:
he keeps talking about illegal guns. To the Constitution, he feigns fealty. “Guns,” he said yesterday, “you have a right to carry by the Second Amendment. The courts have said that municipalities, states, and the federal government have the right to enact reasonable protections to the public.” In fact the Supreme Court has left only a little leeway to the states and municipalities — schools, hospitals, government buildings — and the Mayor doesn’t agree with the court.
Turn him off.
