Default While Bloomberg Frets About Our Guns, NYPD Can't Keep Track of Theirs



BELLEVUE, Wash., July 2 CCRKBA-Bloomberg


BELLEVUE, Wash., July 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg should "mind his own store before telling others how to operate theirs," said the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, after an audit found that the New York Police Department lost track of dozens of guns in its own storage lockers.



"While this guy has been bullying gun dealers around the country about so-called 'slip-shod' operations," chuckled CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, "his own police department seems to be slipping quite a bit on its own. Bloomberg needs to back off, shut up and get his own house in order before telling others how to operate."



According to the New York Times, "nearly one out of three handguns and rifles that had been turned in to the police could not be immediately accounted for in a Manhattan property clerk's office."



"We're waiting for Bloomberg to send a team of undercover vigilante investigators down there to find out what's wrong," Gottlieb said. "Can one of his infamous lawsuits be far behind?"



Bloomberg dispatched non-police "investigators" to run stings on gun shops in several states more than two years ago, ostensibly to show how easy it is to illegally obtain guns in other states. He then sued gun dealers in five states. This rogue operation landed the mayor's office in hot water with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives for jeopardizing on-going legitimate investigations. Ultimately the Justice Department warned the mayor not to pull that stunt again.



"If Mayor Bloomberg wants to find mismanagement of a firearms inventory," Gottlieb stated, "he doesn't need to send goon squads to Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia or anywhere outside of his jurisdiction. All he really needs is to do is visit the police property room in Manhattan and turn his lawyers loose.



"It's a pity that Bloomberg can't lose his arrogant attitude as easily as his cops can lose track of their gun inventory," he concluded.



With more than 650,000 members and supporters nationwide, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (www.ccrkba.org) is one of the nation's premier gun rights organizations. As a non-profit organization, the Citizens Committee is dedicated to preserving firearms freedoms through active lobbying of elected officials and facilitating grass-roots organization of gun rights activists in local communities throughout the United States.

This is not the first time this has happened. In Dade County, about 3 or 4 years ago, there was a "Toys for Guns" program that had people turning in firearms that they "found" in place of new, unwrapped toys for their kids. about 6 months later it was "discovered" that a bunch of the weapons had turned back up on the street and were being used in crimes against the neighborhoods they came from.

I'm afraid the ref is taking a point away after that blow, it seemed to be a bit below the belt.... LOL


Boy, talk about having egg all over your face. You take this BIG public stance on gun control and the very people that work for you are missing one in three registered firearms. Somebody's head is going to roll of this as the face saving move of this year... LOL

Good find sculker, brought a smile to my face!

Think it would be appropriate if several Southern gun dealers filed suit against Bloomberg, alleging that his PD's failure to adequately control firearms in their possession has increased their exposure to criminal acts, seeking monetary damages for the costs of upgrading security systems, and for pain, suffering, and mental anguish due to fear of being a victim of a criminal act involving those firearms- and- wait for it- asking that a Federal Court appoint a "Special Master" to oversee the NYPD. Sauce for the goose, ya know....

Maybe they should take a few surveillance camera's off the streets and place them in the NYC PD's gun lockers and evidence rooms...
