Nanny Bloomberg’s Latest Ridiculous Claim

Tragedy pimps need two things in order to succeed: A tragedy to exploit for their own political ends, and a good number of people who will believe absolutely ridiculous lies:

“It’s so unbelievable, and it only happens in America, and it happens again and again. There was another shooting yesterday, three people killed, I think, in a hospital. We kill people in schools, we kill them in hospitals, we kill them in religious organizations, we kill them when they’re young, we kill them when they’re old, and we’ve just got to stop this.”

It only happens in America… if you don’t count all these incidents.

We’ll never come close to figuring out how to cut down on the numbers of these horrible crimes as long as there are people like Michael Bloomberg being taken seriously in the debate.

But I guess this means Bloomberg will lead by example and have his security detail turn in their deadly guns, eh?
