Anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is closing up shop as the Big Apple’s three-term CEO today, and many in the gun rights community are concerned that he will now devote his energy and vast financial resources to shaping the nation the way he thinks it should be shaped: like a fiefdom.

The National Rifle Association’s Chris Cox is out today with a stinging piece that portrays the billionaire as a man who believes “most Americans are too dumb, or too insignificant, to be afforded much freedom at all.”


“He believes we have to be told everything from what to eat, to how much soda we can drink,” Cox says. “And above all, he wants us stripped of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”


For those who consider Cox the purveyor of paranoia, read what Syuzanna Petrosyan, executive producer at Annenberg Digital News (aka neontommy.com) wrote yesterday:


“The growing prominence of Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York as a gun control policy entrepreneur, can contribute to building coalitions and influencing key decision makers. Thus, with the changes in state laws and with a focus on the states’ policies, as well as influence from policy entrepreneurs such as Bloomberg, the political field will be ready for a policy change. A state-by-state tightening laws can have a huge impact.


“Given the amount of shootings in the past year,” she continued, “it is imperative to immediately focus on a campaign strategy that re-defines the problem of gun policy in the United States, takes advantage of persuasion opportunities and engages policy makers. With carefully planned strategies, a policy window can be opened.”

Oh I think Mr. Bloomin' Onion will find he's not very popular outside of NYC. He can spend all his billions trying to take our guns away, it won't happen and he'll die poor, lonely and forgotten.

Would be sweet if Bloomberg took a Piers Morgan style rib-breaking spill off a segway, one can dream
