    Time to press this thing and get cities to drop out of the Coalition. I have Alexandria, VA's evidence. Time to start breaking down their walls of insanity.

    Which city's next?

    ***? Why should VT "get everyone behind his illegal gun crusade?" It was bought legally. And it proves he's lying about cops not being able to trace guns because they traced it within hours! :banghead:

    At least his money will fuel the ecomomy. :rolleyes: Lobbyists, newspapers, billboard owners, and other media outlets will profit.

    Ummm , if the people on campus had been able to exert their 2A rights maybe the 32 victims rights to not get shot might have been protected? The "I think" and "I feel" crowd apparently don't get that their personal opinions are fine for THEIR personal life , but rights are for everybody , including their right to spew how they "feel" . Wonder how they would "feel" or what they would "think" if restrictions were put on free speech like, background checks, permits, word capacity ( no high capacity speeches or articles) , fingerprints-photo ID- background check-training to be able to speak publicly .

    oK , enough of that . What I want to know is , what does trace data have to do with solving crime? Guns can already be traced all the way back to original FFL so what is trace data suppose to do ?

    It's supposed to make people "feel" safe (like something is being done). You know, as opposed to actually MAKING things safer. :banghead:

    The trace data doesn't have anything to do with solving crime in the traditional sense - as you noted, guns can already be traced back to the original FFL.

    Bloomberg wants trace data available so he can use civil lawsuits (along with their lower burden of proof) to enforce the law. He used the same tactic with the strawman buy schemes. He uses the financial power of NYC to take regular folk to court; nobody has the resources to fight NYC, so they have to give in. He needs the trace data information so he can sue anyone in civil court that ever touched a gun used in a crime.

    In my opinion, this is a real shame. If you want to enforce the law, do it criminal court. There is a reason why criminal cases have a "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard whereas civil cases us a "more likely than not" standard. It is just plain wrong to use the "more likely than not" standard on criminal type cases.

    Provide data to fuel civil lawsuits against law abiding gun dealers and gun manufacturers to drive them out of business... the "police need it" line is 100% fiction. If the police have a gun they need to trace, the ATF will happily trace it for them. Bloomberg is a liar, plain and simple. He's made it his crusade to eliminate lawful gun ownership and will sink to any low in the process of accomplishing his agenda. He is one of the rapid ones that's even extremely critical of his police force's use of firearms... I seriosuly think he'd rather that they didn't have guns either.

    :barf: Does guy spend any time in New York? :barf:

    One would think that running one of the largest cities in the country would give him things to do other than bother the rest of the country with this nonsense.

    VT had nothing to do with illegal guns.

    I hope he spends it all. Every penny.

    This is old news...

    I think when his ads start showing everyone should write to the stations that run them and ask them to stop. I imagine a mass letter writing campaign against the ads trying to politicize the VT massacre might have some effect.

    But....but.....Bloomberg would never mislead anyone! He knows the facts about everything! Remember when he said that the governor used a boat race to decide whether Staten Island should be part of New York or New Jersey? Hahaha!

    Bloomberg: "He set up a race — I forget whether it was rowing or sailing — around Staten Island, and New York won," Mr. Bloomberg said. "And so we've got the great borough of Staten Island as part of New York rather than part of New Jersey."

    Nuff said about that guy.

    These idiots would outlaw lifeboats the day after the Titanic went down. Forrest Gump was right: "Stupid is as stupid does."
