Michael Bloomberg: “it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” not the “average citizen”

2 Feb , 2020   Video

After the West Freeway Church of Christ shooting near Fort Worth, where concealed handgun permit holders stopped a mass public shooting, Michael Bloomberg warned that the average citizen shouldn’t be carrying guns.

“It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people. But it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

In recent years, civilians have stopped dozens of such attacks in churches, businesses, movie theaters, restaurants, and malls. The only exceptional aspect of the West Freeway case was that the permit holder’s actions actually garnered some national attention, unlike the vast majority of these heroic acts. None of the problems that Bloomberg seems to fear — permit holders shooting bystanders or being shot by arriving police — occurred in any of those cases.

    Good guy with a gun always trumps bad guy With a gun And that happens all over America

    I want to be able to save my own life. You don’t always have time to wait for the police.

    Bloomberg says “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place,” but what he fails to understand is that is EXACTLY what I want.

  4. Richard Ley says:

    Bloomberg is another traitor to the American people

    He’s in favor the murdering baby and stealing your tax money…

    The reason he wants your guns is so you can’t fight back against his socialist agenda.

    Bloomberg is just another lowlife politician willing to steal your constitutional rights

  5. Deserttrek says:

    And he has paid security at the moment, not taxpayer funded.


    Bloomberg is a jew. After WWII the people took revenge on the jews who were Nazi collaborators. They were executed. Bloomberg wears armored clothing and has bodyguards who carry machine guns. He is the worst kind of Quisling traitor. He deserves to be hung.

      I know (hope) you are not talking about all the Jewish people! If you are your an uneducated idiot! I’m sure there are some that tried to save their own neck. To say all the Jews did this is just down right racist and stupid!

  7. Bloomberg is exactly the reason we have the second amendment. the founding fathers knew that someday politicians like Bloomberg would get into positions of government power and the citizens would need the right to bear arms to protect themselves.

  8. Michael R Fallon says:

    Well, I guess it never occurred to Bloomberg, that we average citizens, don’t have a phalanx of armed private security, like he does. What an elitest snob! Out of touch, with reality, and common sense.

  9. Mike says:

    SURE! Let’s wait until more people get murdered while we wait on law enforcement! One of my best friends is a local deputy and he would suggest taking the idiot down before waiting on him and his fellow officers show up! How many have to die because a law abiding citizen who was carrying a legal gun couldn’t shot the perp? Idiots!

  10. Roger says:

    I totally agree. I want the qualified citizen to carry!

  11. Mike says:

    I agree with him. “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.” The law abiding gun owner is far above the average citizen.
