In the video, Bloomberg is seen surrounded by security. Mattera approaches Bloomberg and asks, “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?”

Bloomberg’s reply: “Uh, you, we’ll get right back to you.”

“Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?” Mattera asks as the mayor walks away. “Look at the team of security you’ve got. And you’re an advocate for gun control?”

The video then cuts to Mattera walking further down the street when one of the men guarding Bloomberg, identified as Officer Stockton NYPD, stops Mattera and asks to see his photo ID.

    Bloomberg is a blooming idiot. He should set the example he wants everyone else to follow. He will quickly learn that he'll be vulnerable just like everyone else he wants to impose 2A restrictions on.

    The arrogance of today's politicians who are in power demands that laws don't apply to them. Besides, he knows better what is good for us than we do, at least, that's how his mind works. I don't think firearms for the sake of defense should be banned for anybody.

    Once again, one law for him another law for the people. They should just go ahead and say it up front when running for election.. they dont have to live by the same laws we do.

    IF he's going to take that stand then he should face the same dangers unarmed as everybody else..

    Ladies and Gentlemen.. Feinstein introduces one of the most sweeping gun control laws since 1968 and IMMEDIATELY Exempts Politicians from the restrictions..

    What we have here is another form of ROYALTY being created by these elites..

    We aleady WORK for them but I guess that THAT just isn't good enough anymore.. NOW we have o DIE on the streets of America for them as well..

    This may be difficult to understand, so please pay attention: Most gun control advocates support restrictions on privately owned weapons, not those used by professional security forces. Guards need weapons that others do not need, because they must protect others. Capisce?
  • Hawkeye Kaleoku... 2013/01/29 09:50:12
    Now YOU pay attention.. WHY are the people THEY protect more worthy of living safely then the average citizen??

    Why are YOU placing different values on the lives of human beings based on social standing??

    MUCH as I studied the wording of the FIRST Amendment to TRY to discover the rationale ( and VALIDATION ) behind your contentions,, I can't find the words " The right of SECURITY Guards to keep and bear arms shall NOT be infringed " anywhere in the First Amendment..

    Seems to ME that the Gun Control advocates like Bloomberg are trying to reword the First Amendment without doing the work.. And they're doing so in the way that would more closely folloe the mentality of HITLER rather then Jefferson..

  • Kaleoku... Hawkeye 2013/01/29 20:09:31 (edited)
    Problems with reading comprehension? Worthiness of living safely is not the issue. The issue is arming professional guards versus private citizens. Capisce?
  • Hawkeye Kaleoku... 2013/01/29 21:14:20
    Yeah and the CONSTITUTION guarentees the RIGHT of that arming of the Private Citizen.. It does NOT say the same for Professionals..

    Now.. THAT doesn't mean that Professionals don't HAVE that right but it sure as HELL don't mean that they have MORE of a right to it then anybody else ei9ther..

    Don't BOTHER capiscing.. It already appears to be beyond that..
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/29 12:40:20
    Guards face exactly the same threats that normal people face.

    Guess what? Even if they face threats more often than me, if carrying a gun only saves me once - then it f***ing saved me!
  • Kaleoku... phil.ol... 2013/01/29 20:11:41 (edited)
    "Guards face exactly the same threats that normal people face"? My, what an ACTIVE imagination! The primary function of guards is to protect OTHERS. Guards are hired because threats are higher than normal.
  • Hawkeye Kaleoku... 2013/01/29 21:17:48
    Guards are higher because threats are PERCIEVED to be higher and even THAT isn't always the case..

    I would IMAGINE that,, given the letest crime statistics,, the average Citizen on the streets of a city like CHicago is probably in FAR MORE danger then Barack Hussein Obama is on a GOLF COurse..
  • Kaleoku... Hawkeye 2013/01/29 22:00:52 (edited)
    I believe Mayor Bloomberg is not concerned with safety on the streets of Chicago or any golf course. He is concerned with HIS safety in NYC.
  • Hawkeye Kaleoku... 2013/01/29 22:07:51
    Considering how he treats the citizens of New York,, he probablty has GOOD REASON to worry....

    HITLER had the SAME concerns..
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/30 03:24:45
    The threats that people face - like police men, and armed guards - are the EXACT same threats that everyone else faces!

    They are hired to try to deal with these threats, and to run towards them, instead of away from them!

    You are wrong!
  • Kaleoku... phil.ol... 2013/01/30 03:31:43
    Where EXACTLY am I wrong?
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/30 03:36:33
    Guards do NOT have any "higher than normal threats"

    They have the EXACT SAME threats that face everyone else.

    They are supposed to face those threats all the time - as that is their only job - but the threats are no worse to a guard than the threats are to the people of the US, who have the right to keep and bear arms.

    You're wrong.
  • Kaleoku... phil.ol... 2013/01/30 03:42:56 (edited)
    You are out of your mind! Guards are employed BECAUSE the threats are higher than normal, whether to property or personnel they are guarding.

    If the threats were no higher than normal, there would be no need to pay for guards. For example: The United States would have no need for Fort Knox, because our gold would be safe without such security.
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/30 03:49:57
    The threats to PEOPLE are higher than normal - so that's why guards are employed.

    That's right - the threats that the people face are EXACTLY THE SAME THREATS that the guards face!

    The people are not always in the danger zone, but the guards are. The guards may be less safe because they are guards, and they may need their gun more often, but people needing their gun LESS often does not mean that they don't need it!

    You are factually wrong in your first post when you said that I had an active imagination for stating fact!
  • Kaleoku... phil.ol... 2013/01/30 04:01:47
    Bodyguards, for example, are often employed by the wealthy to prevent kidnappings. The guards are not subject to kidnapping, but their employers ARE subject to kidnapping. Therefore, the threats the guards face are NOT the same.
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/30 04:12:40
    So the people need the guns more than the guards do, then?
  • Kaleoku... phil.ol... 2013/01/30 05:06:55
    No. The guards face the threat so that their clients do not need weapons.
  • phil.ol... Kaleoku... 2013/01/30 07:08:53 (edited)
    So without people with guns, people that could be hurt wouldn't be safe.

    Right. That's my point.

    ARMS are NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE - and my rights will never end where your feelings begin.
