    I'm sure many of you have been following this story. Bloomberg spent $100k of NYC taxpayer's money to send a couple of his stooges to Arizona to prove that people there can buy guns at a gun show without submitting to a background check. What a sensationalistic flaming idiot this guy is! All he had to do was check Arizona gun laws, but NO, that wouldn't get his face in the press and further his anti-gun agenda. I'm sure the Arizona governor appreciates his moronic intrusive antics.

    The stooges that bloomberg sent to buy guns are just as guilty as the people in his town doing the same thing. That's if this story is even true.

    There is an article in yesterdays Arizona Republic about more than a dozen Gun Rights Bills that have been proposed but have not yet been assigned to committee ... Senate bill 1201 will allow people to carry into all government run facilitys and many public events ... The proposals would make Arizona the state with the loosest guns laws in the nation and would even allow for guns to be on campus of universities as well as Government buildings ... Governor Jan Brewer has consistantly supported 2nd Amendment issues and there is a list of bills she signed in nher first year as Arizona's Governor ... Let Freedom Ring America or should we say Arizona and Utah ...


    The things Bloombergs Clowns found out about is public knowledge, all they had to do is ask and they could of saved the $100,000.00, but that would be to easy and not make the press ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bill and others why doesn't Arizona send a couple of operatives to New York with some money and buy them on any street conner. It can be done for under $2000 per gun.

    Residents of New York are prohibited from buying firearms from individuals residing in another state by the GCA of 1968 without having it transferred by a dealer. Were they news reporters or law enforcement officers? Where did they get their immunity to do this?

    Didn't the left go after the couple that exposed SEIU? I think the main reason was they did it without the consent of those they had on video.

    Bloomberg is guilty as charged.

    Bill nothing except he is taking liberties with everyone gun rights. My point was he sent his people to Arizona to try to prove the laws in that state are faulty.

    While in New York anyone can buy a gun on the streets of that city. With a criminal record as well as no paper work, no forms to fill out, no back ground check nothing.

    So what is the difference between the two actions and why not clean up his own house before tackling someone else's. So why doesn't he instead of trying to be in law enforcement by proving there are problems in some one else's state/city clean up his own. Hell he can't even seem to get the streets in his city plowed when it snows let alone crime free.

    I wasn't arguing just stating a fact. BTW this is not the first time New York people have pulled this type of stunt.

    Bob,

    You and I both know that if Bloomberg wanted to really point out problems he would of looked at his own state, he is trying to put the blame on other states which would take the spotlight off of him ... The Gun Laws in the State of Arizona are going to get even better for the gun owners if and when the proposed amendments that have been made get passed and go into effect ...
    People were all worried about people being able to carry concealed when that law got changed and nothing has changed one way or the other, so all of the worry and comments were for no reason ... Glock and Master Card, don't leave home without them ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bill in this State the gun laws were all changed in 98 the master plan was a flop.

    The Dems claimed that the changes would cause lower violent crime and less illegal gun sales. Well the 98 gun law has created more crime with a gun than at any time in recorded history in this state and illegal sales of handguns seem to be at an all time high. As more criminals have guns than in the past.

    Guess what they still want more gun restrictions in this state. As far as Glock is concerned you can't buy one new in this state only used. Here we have a list of handguns that can be purchased new. The new handguns must pass a series of tests one is a drop test. The manufacturer must submit a gun for testing. Which require the gun to be drop on concrete from various angles and heights.

    Who is going to send a expensive handgun in for testing so it can be beat to hell by the state.

    Those that pass are then published on a list of allowable handguns. This is all under the control of the Attorney General who while entering her second term in office hasn't released a list yet. So lets just say that they all know how to blow smoke. Just to hide the fact they can't do their own job after all public money is easy to come by to cover their own A**.

    I think any one of us could go to any state and buy a handgun provided we had the greenbacks. Who needs a gun show or even ID? So what does it prove?

    Really sick timing too but then I recall a similar stunt coming out of NYC in the wake of the Viginia Tech shootings. Obviously we are looking at politicians looking to gain some power by tugging on raw emotions.

    Bloomberg--As per the old adage--Why be thought of as a fool when all you have to do is open your mouth (brain) and prove it beyond any doubt.

    Any of you remember when Clinton shut down the government for 3 days? People were fast finding out they DIDN'T need the government to live those 3 days. Clinton started things back up once he was made aware that his antics were backfiring. Politicians LOVE to sell people on the idea that they NEED them to run the country. Good government is like a good umpire behind the plate of a baseball game. If you didn't notice the umpire during the game he did a good job. That's the way a good government operates. Our society shouldn't have political news smeared across the news every day. When it runs right, you don't have to continually read about the job they're doing. Funny when you think about it, but when a baseball player gets out of line in a game the umpire throws the guy out. In government, when a player (banker) gets out of line they reward him with more money and big bonuses. Seems a bit of a disconnect to me. Jim

    SIMPLY AMAZING !!! This is GOOD

    The person in this video is a professor (Ph.D.) at Yavapai College in Prescott , Arizona . He puts a different spin on what Obama is doing to help Arizona and he repeats the important parts and speaks slowly enough to allow you to follow what he's saying; must be why he's rated highly by his students - 3.8 on a 4.0 scale.


    This may be the best video produced on the illegal alien problems that are being experienced.

    There are several vidoes attached to that one that make it even more clear as to how the Government (Obama and his Clowns) of the United States is going against the American people and siding with the Illegals ... WPT ... (YAC) ...
