Mayor Bloomberg Behind National TV Ad Urging Closure Of Gun Loophole

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is continuing his crusade against illegal guns, now with a national TV ad.

WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb With The Story

The ad urges Congress to plug loopholes allowing terrorists and criminals to buy firearms inside the U.S.

The spot, produced by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, features a clip from an Al-Qaeda propaganda video and an American-born terrorist Azzam al-Amriki, aka Adam Gadahn.

The narration says, “The latest Al-Qaeda plot instructs terrorists on how to buy guns in America.”

Al-Amriki says, “This is a golden opportunity. America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms. You can go down to a gun show and come away with a fully automatic assault rifle, without a background check.”

The terrorist then asks his fellow travelers, “So, what are you waiting for?”

Bloomberg says you’re checked against a terrorist watch list to board an airplane, but you don’t have to be checked when buying assault weapons.

    Adam Yahiye Gadahn (Arabic: آدم يحيى غدن‎, Ādam Yaḥyā Ghadan; born Adam Pearlman, September 1, 1978) is an American senior operative, cultural interpreter, spokesman[2] and media advisor[3] for the Sunni islamist group Al-Qaeda. Since 2004, he appeared in a number of videos produced by Al-Qaeda as “Azzam the American” (‘Azzām al-Amrīki, عزام الأمريكي, sometimes transcribed as Ezzam Al-Amerikee). Gadahn converted to Sunni Islam in 1995, at the age of 17, at a California mosque and is described as a “homegrown”, meaning that he has converted to an ideology so firmly that he is now willing to harm his country of origin.[2] He is believed to have inspired the 2007 Osama bin Laden video.[3]
    NO WAY a Radical group of Islamic Terrorists would follow an American Jew.

    Hey, I just figured out which LOOPHOLE that Hitler Bloomberg is referring to: The Bill of Rights. We should have a law banning that. Plug that pesky loophole.

  • DanTe

    Why do lib t ards like you and Hitler hate for Jews and Citizens to own guns? You lib t ards hailed (sig heil) Nazi Germany as the most “civilized” country in the world as they banned all private gun ownership. Gee, I wander why you and Hitler didn’t want Jews to have guns, as the SS came knocking on the door.

    Does your current anti-defense rhetoric bring back fond memories of past Third Rheich campaigns? sssssssssssssssss………. brings back tears of joy in your eyes?

    Bloomberg = Hitler:

    Bloomberg and Hitler both unilaterally broke the law on term limits and extended their terms due to an “emergency”.

    Bloomberg and Hitler both like to dictate what healthy activity or food the peons need to do or eat. Hitler was a vegetarian too.

    Bloomberg and Hitler both have grand automobile/people mover plans. The Autoban and the massive lane changes in NYC.

    Bloomberg and Hitler both hates it when civilians are allowed to own guns. Gee, I wonder why they both like a helpless citizenry.

    Bloomberg and Hitler both use “emergencies” to increase their special police’s powers. NYC’s SS even perform overseas “investigations”, like NYC is a wholly separate little dictatoriate.

    Bloomberg and Hitler both just love to control how our youths are “educated”. And children were encouraged to report the teachers if they said the wrong thing.

    Bloomberg and Hitler people both wear monochrome colored shirts in a uniform manner. (While it’s true, this is placed here more so that the fascists can have something to respond to.)

    I wonder what “emergency” will occur for Bloomberg to break the term limit on the Presidency?

    This is just another ploy by the “Progressives” to disarm Americans so that when all of our rights are eroded away; we won’t have the option our Founding Fathers had.

    Note: the video is filled with errors. You can NOT buy an automatic weapon at a gun show. Maybe the terrorists don’t want an armed and concealed carrying American public that could stop a terrorist act?

  • Molly

    yep, they way them run dem dere gun shows.

  • Marty

    For one thing that part about coming away with a fully automatic weapon without a background check is a lie.Also the cities with the highest crime rates have the harshest gun laws. Nearly all of the gun crimes are committed by people that have a criminal background. So to take the guns from the law abiding citizen is the most idiotic thing to do. And some may say why do you need a weapon that holds a hundred rounds of ammo? Well my answer to that is its my constitutional protected right to have such a weapon. And as long as someone is not a criminal they should have that right also.

    • KPMc

      So what is your objection to background checks that weed out criminals, terrorists and nut jobs? Are you afraid you might fall into one of those categories?

      I really don’t understand people that cry about taking guns away from law abiding citizens but still have problems with attempts to keep them from criminals.

      PS… the part about semi-automatic weapons was said by the terrorist, you morons.
