I was living in New York City at the time of the 2005 transit strike, and I credit that transit strike for turning me into a dedicated cyclist. When I couldn't take the subway to work, I decided to take my bike, which turned out to be fun and easy, even in December. After the transit strike ended, I never went back to consistent subway use and kept the bike as my primary method of transportation; depending on myself and providing my own means of getting around the city proved more dependable and reliable, and saved me around a grand each year, vs. relying on the service provided by the city. Even now, living on the other side of the country, I put in about a hundred miles every week commuting to and from work on my bike, even through the winter.

What Bloomberg is suggesting here is that a law enforcement strike would compel people to impose stricter gun control on themselves, which is the same as saying that the transit strike should have made me want to give up my bike. Take away law enforcement, take away the provided service, and it's my responsibility to protect myself. And you know what I'm going to want to hang on to if I'm left with no option but to protect myself?

A gun.

If they go on strike, how would Bloomberg keep track of Muslims attending Rutgers and living in NJ?

I am guessing this retard wants them to also go on strike against that pesky fourth amendment as well? I mean it does make their job more difficult and all that.

I can only hope that he gets primaried by either a fiscally conservative democrat or a socially liberal republican. I will move my residence of record to vote for either one over this nanny stating POS.

One can only hope that this entire unfortunate event has highly personal unintended consequences for Mr. Bloomberg.

jigger: HotWingConspiracy: sprawl15: Cletus C.: Ironically enough, considering the aneurysms every time regulating guns is discussed.

When someone says they hope to regulate their bowel movements, does that mean they want Congress to pass fecal handling directives?

Maybe, I don't know what sick shiat people are in to.

But thankfully that doesn't appear in our constitution. Regulating guns and militias does.


Regulation of militias is in there. Regulation of arms is not. Prohibitions on the infringement of the right to bear arms is in there.


"No limits on any guns" is an idiotic idea that is absolutely not implicit in the amendment.

According to the SCOTUS the regulation comes from the militia itself not Congress. It is "A well regulated militia" not "A Militia well regulated by the Congress".

"I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say, 'We're gonna go on strike. We're not going to protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe,'" Bloomberg said.


Hey Mikey.....if the cops all over the country went on strike, would that decrease or increase firearm sales?

Also, go f*ck yourself.
