Bloomy’s mommies are “livid” about the expansion of freedom in West Virginia…

In the first two days after West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s repeat veto of a constitutional carry bill, the legislature voted to approve it without his signature.

The WV legislature soundly overrode the Governor’s veto. The new law takes effect in 90 days. The mommies had a howling fit, as is to be expected.

“As a mom and a West Virginian, I am livid that the legislature caved to the demands of the gun lobby on HB 4145,” said Dee Price with the West Virgina chapter of Moms Demand Action in a statement emailed to Guns.com.

Though, they’re probably not as bent as Bloomy is. It’s not like they spent another boatload of cash on a losing campaign.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown group who, as noted by the Associated Press, have invested “in the six-figure range” to blitz the issue in ads statewide, also funded a survey citing more than two-thirds of concealed carry permit holders favor requiring permits to carry a concealed handgun in public in the state.

“If directions to your house include the words ‘Turn off the pavement’, you might be a redneck.”

-Jeff Foxworthy

“In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get. And, yes, they lost recall elections. I’m sorry for that. We tried to help ’em.”

-Former NYC Mayor and Über-billionaire Michael Bloomberg.

One was telling a joke; the other is a joke.

Nanny Bloomberg recently granted an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine. In it, he used those words to describe backwater towns like Colorado Springs, CO. He called these places where the toothless locals rejected his sage gun control advice trackless wilderness. Let’s take a peek and see what this tumbleweed strewn wasteland really looks like.

So here’s a nice overview…

CO Springs 1

Now usually, those yellow… er… um… “yeller” lines mean roads on Google Earth. They could be dirt trails; though, one of them is marked as an interstate highway. Do they ever make those outta dirt? Let’s zoom in a bit…

CO Springs 2

Those certainly look like paved roads. Perhaps it’s just shiny mud or something…

CO Springs 3

Nope, I’m sorry Mr. Mayor. Those are actual paved roads. Looks like them rednecks even have that newfangled ‘lectricity stuff; streetlights and ever’thin’!

Yee-haw!

The tough part about being a gun control activist these days is this darned Internet. In days gone by, you could make whatever wild claim you like and no one would be the wiser. Fact checking meant spending hours at a library. And even if you got caught stretching the truth, or outright lying, there was no way for the gun nuts to let anyone know. The friendly media wasn’t motivated to do any fact checking of their own and they certainly wouldn’t give any air time or ink to “those people”.

Those were the days, weren’t they Mickey?

Back in the day, a claim like this would have gone unchallenged. Not anymore. Now, with Twitter and other social media, people like Charles Johnson can disseminate the information they find; such as that most of the “school shootings” the Mommies list were gang related. One was even a defensive gun use; hardly replays of Columbine or Sandy Hook. Furthermore, citizen journalists get noticed by New Media and the story gets out. Now, thanks to the end of the Big Media monopoly on the flow of information, even the mainstream media can’t just play along with the gun banners.

I’m guessing that Michael Bloomberg is cursing Algore right about now.

So did you hear the one about the obnoxious billionaire?

Former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn’t learn his lesson after losing $350,000 in Colorado. He didn’t learn his lesson when his “Mommies” went no where. He didn’t learn when his Mayors Against Illegal Guns turned out to be Illegal Mayors Against Guns. And now Nanny Mike is rolling out his next failure: Everytown For Gun Safety.

Yup… That’s really what he’s calling it. If there’s a cute acronym hiding there someplace, you probably need to be severely dyslexic to spot it. But then again, that’s true of all of his anti-gun groups. They all sport acronyms that look like they were written by a monkey having a seizure on a keyboard.

Now Nanny Mike plans to blow $50 million on his latest attempt to buy the US Constitution. He says that his latest group with an odd name is going to challenge the NRA. Nanny Mike, referred to as “delusional” by Slate’s Jamelle Bouie,  is laboring under the impression that outspending the NRA will help him to get his way. He doesn’t know about the NRA’s secret weapon: You and your 5,000,000 friends.

Most Americans don’t care all that much about gun control. They may favor it should a pollster call, but they don’t do anything about it. Gun owners, and NRA Members in particular, are another matter. People like you are passionate about the issue; far more so than Bloomie’s Moms. You turn out to vote for pro-gun candidates. You donate time as well as money to the cause. When your Party tries to sneak an anti-gun candidate past you, you call them on it and refuse to support them. You write letters to the editor, you call your Congressman, you email, you tweet, and you blog to show your support for our 2nd Amendment freedoms.

You are worth far more than Nanny Mike’s billions.

Over at Breitbart.com, AWR Hawkins takes NYC mayor and nanny-in-chief Mike Bloomberg on an exceedingly short trip back through time; barely enough to wibble even the wobbliest of timey whimies. Back in November of ’12, Bloomberg was declaring the NRA dead. Yes, the November of ’12 that was six months ago; six months before the NRA signed up its 5,000,000th member.

One of Mayor Bloomy’s hired guns apparently likes his guns…

…but not yours.

That’s one of Bloomy’s lobbyists, Adam Eichberg of Headwaters Stratagies, blasting away at some watermelons with an AR platform rifle. Note the “high cap” magazine and the vicious assault barrel shroud! And the bipod? That’s to make it especially useful for shooting toddlers.
