Bloomberg Being Targeted For Federal Investigation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Ohioans for Concealed Carry, the Virginia Citizens Defense League and other gun rights organizations have joined together calling for a federal investigation into New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg’s nationwide assault on gun rights and in particular firearms dealers.

This is part of a letter being sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, according to OFCC.

It is well known that Mayor Bloomberg has organized a multi-state vigilante-style campaign against federal gun dealers. Bloomberg’s gambit is simple – without any federal or state law enforcement authorization, he sends people to federal firearms dealers to break federal law by providing false information on the federal ATF Form 4473 firearm transfer form, and then purchasing guns for persons prohibited by law from taking possession of guns (a so called “straw” sale). Bloomberg then files a civil lawsuit against the dealer in a New York court while using a covertly made video tape of the transaction to blackmail the dealer into “settling” on terms where the City of New York’s “Special Master” will supplant ATF supervision of the dealer and peruse Americans’ confidential federal gun transfer records at will.
