The Pro Gun Rally Against Bloomberg

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On Friday, I reported that organizers were planning a rally outside City Hall in downtown Manhatten to protest Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s nationwide effort to rid this country of guns. The rally took place yesterday with what has been described as a light turnout.

Naturally, the majority of main stream media would not report on this rally because it is contrary to their personal beliefs but World Net Daily covered the story in detail.

Nic Leobold, who organized the rally, says that Bloomberg is attacking our gun rights and convincing people it is combating crime.

“Tens of thousands of New Yorkers actually own guns which are not registered and are therefore so-called illegal. But these people are not criminals, nor are they violent, they are respectable, responsible citizens and residents who want a dependable way to protect themselves and their loved ones,”

Bloomberg’s campaign calls for the registering of all guns, something which Leobold says is going far beyond anything reasonable. He says Bloomberg is working with “elitists” to erode individual rights to self-defense. People fear that registering their guns will result in government confiscating them and taking away the one basic individual right to defend themselves.

Jeffrey Russell, Libertarian Party candidate for the U.S. Senate, attended the rally and spoke in support of the 2nd Amendment and our individual right to self defense.

“Without it, we have no rights,” he said. “Government should not make self-defense a crime. Merely possessing a firearm should not be a crime, and using a firearm in self-defense should not be a crime. The bad guys will always have access to weapons. The police cannot protect everyone, everywhere, all the time. We must allow and encourage the people to be responsible for themselves.”

World Net Daily covers more of the story including lawsuits filed against Bloomberg by gun dealers and comments from others about this issue.
