I have ZERO issue with UNIVERSAL background checks. Once I get the stamp on my license, I can walk into any armory, pick a weapon/ammo, and leave directly for the range as soon as I have paid. In any state within the Union

Making me wait 15+ days EVERY TIME I decide I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket, not acceptable.

Even with a permit, you have to wait? In CT, with my CCL I just walk in and buy whatever I want, on the spot. I do agree with a waiting period for unlicensed owners, though (for long guns).

CAli, nuff said?

I was carrying CASH, every night of the week, in da Hood, from the baseball snackbar, for 2 years. Not a compelling enough reason to get a CCW from the county sheriff's office. . . .

Bloomberg is really running his campaign quietly in a way...

I don't see commercial TV so I only saw the one from the SuperBowl, and then only because I specifically sought it out. But if what you're saying is true he's blowing his chance.

I've seen one commercial like that, the vast majority of his commercials are how he built a company and created jobs. But I'm in Texas, The gun control ads are probably not a good fit here

- I think if Trump makes more glaring mistakes embarrassing our nation internationally - or continues to cyber bully, Bloomberg might get close, especially with Biden's #'s decreasing. Bloom might be the moderate most voters are comfortable with. Perhaps enough voters don't want Trumps flavor of a revolution?

This racial thing will be his achilles heel. But I now really believe he will be the nominee. He has too much money to be denied. He can probably outspend the Republicans.

You don't think the MSM cares about what Bloomberg said do you?
They don't give two kicks.

IF he is the dem nominee Trump will have that audio pumping out of elevator speakers.
Solid gold campaign material.

Heck, the dems will probably start using it now but if the TV people are told to protect him, they will edit any and all out before airing.

Either way it's a big hammer to hit him with.
Do you think black and hispanic folks care more about what he said or "they let you grab them by the poonie"?
Easy answer.

BLOOMBUCKS is a hypocrite of the most monumental proportions... And really, unless you've lived in NY under his so called leadship, you have no idea what you're talking about if you support a single idea he stands on. Bloombucks doesn't want universal BG checks, he wants no guns at all. Except those that are carried by his private security teams. He used to boast about how he took the train to work, while the cameras conveniently left out the phalax of NYPD plainclothes around him. He loved his armed guards so much that when he left office he took them with him.

Here's his latest garbage... Rehashed footage from a while ago, but today he spews a softer message because he will say whatever needs to be said to get a vote.

https://nypost.com/2020/02/11/leaked...top-and-frisk/

Don't forget next week he'll be telling you what to eat, what to read... And oh, get back to work so those millionaires have someone to serve them and be nice because they just might leave the U.S. He's a putz...

Oddly enough TMZ has the best coverage so far:

The stop & frisk defense video you all are foaming over is from 2015. He's seen the light on that and has stated so publicly. He knows it's a sore spot.

I hope you think his dem challengers are overblowing it when they use it against him, which they will in a heartbeat.

yet, not one drop of coverage on local news or national news this evening. they mention bloomberg several times just nothing regarding these statements. if this was DT we wouldn't stop hearing about this until election day.

i find it out that no one remembers the days where cory booker was for stop and frisk and stated it was what turned around newark when he was mayor however he is now against it, stating it is racist and unjust. it was good enough to turn around newark and get him to where he is today but now it is unjust. reminds me of mayor debozo getting rid of specialized schools but it was good enough for his children to attend but now they're racist.

All of the sudden CNN has a problem with audio from the past. They are claiming a Sanders supporter is behind the rereleased tape and that they are trying to ruin Bloomberg.

Well, DUH.
They are so gutter hypocritical you can't even laugh.

The media machine/wall street seems to be getting behind Bloomberg and will go all out to squash Bernie. Watch.
