A story by Alan Gottlieb of the Citizens Committee For the Right to Keep and Bears Arms, published at Ammoland, says NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg ought to put his own house in order before he goes around telling everyone else what to do:
Before anti-gun New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg calls on firearms dealers, gun shows and law-abiding citizens to stop the flow of so-called “illegal guns” to the Big Apple, he needs first to explain a gun trafficking loophole in his own city’s police department, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.
In an exclusive story, the New York Post reports that a 31-year-old police officer has been identified as a suspect in the theft of firearms from the locker room at the Ninth Precinct headquarters in the East Village. At least four handguns were taken and allegedly sold on the street, the newspaper said.
“How many times must Bloomberg be told to keep his own house in order before he runs around complaining about the rest of the country,” asked CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “While he goes looking for headlines in other states, one of his own cops apparently has added to the crime problem right under the mayor’s nose.”
Advice to NYC cops: always check with Attorney General Eric Holder before you start running guns. He should be able to tell how to do it the right way, and even show you how to cover it up if you get caught.
