Reasonable is a subjective term that is easily taken out of context. Is it reasonable to keep a gun out of the hands of a paranoid, sociopath...yes. Does agreeing with that specific instance extrapolate to anything Bloomberg thinks is reasonable...hell no.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
