Michael Bloomberg on Florida: ‘License to murder’

The so-called Stand Your Ground self-defense laws in Florida and some other states amount to “a license to murder” and an excuse for “vigilante justice,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg charged Wednesday.

“The laws are not the kind of laws a civilized society should have and the [National Rifle Association] should be ashamed of themselves,” Bloomberg, a leading gun-control advocate, said at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. “This has nothing to do with gun-owners’ rights. This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment.”

“Plain and simple, this is just trying to give people a license to murder,” he added of the Stand Your Ground laws.

The laws are enacted in roughly two-dozen states but have been under intense scrutiny since the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black Florida teen, whose shooter, neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, claimed self-defense.

    New York
    City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is an idiot, I have been diagnosed with MPD/MDS
    and have a sever sodium deficiency of which there is nothing that can be done
    about it, I must salt my food to gain the missing sodium. A few weeks ago while
    in MYC, went out to eat at a very nice restaurant, and was denied salt.
    Bloomberg has no right to legislate what we can put into our own bodies, those
    who think they can are hypocrites, such as people who have dined at the
    Bloomberg home say he salts everything, including various melons.

    Says
    Bloomberg, a leading gun-control advocate, said at the National Press Club in
    Washington, D.C. “This has nothing to do with gun-owners’ rights. This has
    nothing to do with the Second Amendment.” He claims the Second Amendment is
    solely for Militias’, which are under the President’s authority…The Amendment
    clearly says that the ‘Right to Bear Arms’ was to rise up against a U.S. Leader
    invokes a dictatorship, Tyranny, refusal to obey the Law of the Land. This is a
    man who believes “fairness” means taking from the working people and
    giving to to the less fortunate, or using the money for green energy (a disaster) the
    world will not viable for another 25 years, thus wasting even more of our money.
