Bloomberg To Finance $12 Million Anti-Gun Campaign…

Quote:The commercial is an unambiguous appeal to gun owners: a middle-aged hunter, rifle in hand, vows that he will fight to protect the Second Amendment.

But in a sensible, father-of-the-house tone, he also urges voters to support comprehensive background checks, “so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

The man behind the advertisement is not known for his kinship with the gun crowd: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, the nation’s fiercest advocate of restrictions on firearms since the December rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Determined to persuade Congress to act in response to that shooting, Mr. Bloomberg on Monday will begin bankrolling a $12 million national advertising campaign that focuses on senators who he believes might be persuaded to support a pending package of federal regulations to curb gun violence.

The ads, in a dozen states, will blanket those senators’ districts during an Easter Congressional recess that is to be followed by debate over the legislation.

Well, that commercial certainly evoked a reaction from me...

but not the one he was hoping for. Quite the opposite, actually.

NEW YORK (AP) — A new $12 million television ad campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns will push senators in key states to back gun control efforts, including comprehensive background checks.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the ad buy Saturday — just days after Senate Democrats touted stronger background checks while acknowledging insufficient support to restore a ban on assault-style weapons to federal gun control legislation.

"These ads bring the voices of Americans — who overwhelmingly support comprehensive and enforceable background checks — into the discussion to move senators to immediately take action to prevent gun violence," Bloomberg said in a statement issued by the group he co-founded in 2006.

The two ads posted on the group's website, called "Responsible" and "Family," show a gun owner holding a rifle while sitting on the back of a pickup truck.

In one ad, the man says he'll defend the Second Amendment but adds "with rights come responsibilities." The ad then urges viewers to tell Congress to support background checks.

In the other ad, the man, a hunter, says "background checks have nothing to do with taking guns away from anyone." The man then says closing loopholes will stop criminals and the mentally ill from obtaining weapons.

The Senate is scheduled to debate federal gun control legislation next month after returning from the Easter Recess. On March 28, the group plans for more than 100 events nationwide in support of passing gun control legislation that includes background checks.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns and other gun-control advocates frequently cite a mid-1990s study that suggested about 40 percent of U.S. gun transfers were conducted by private sellers not subject to federal background checks. Based on 2011 FBI data, the group estimates 6.6 million firearms transfers are made without a background check for the receiver.

A spokesman for Bloomberg could not immediately say if the $12 million was coming from Bloomberg or the mayor's PAC, Independence USA. In first reporting the ad campaign Saturday evening, The New York Times reported Bloomberg was bankrolling the ad buy.

Last month, Bloomberg's PAC poured more than $2 million into ads supporting Illinois state Rep. Robin Kelly, who won a special primary and ran partly on a platform of supporting tougher gun restrictions.

The new ads will air in 13 states and target specific Democrats and Republican senators, including Sen. Mark Flake (R-AZ) and North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan (D-LA). Ads will also air in Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, New Hampshire, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The Senate is scheduled to debate federal gun control legislation next month after returning from the Easter Recess, which lasts from March 25 through April 5. On March 28, the group plans for more than 100 events nationwide in support of passing gun control legislation that includes background checks.

Yes, yes he does. Remember only the "special people" are "allowed" to have power. Peons like you and me are to just sit in the corner and do what we're told.

Someone called central casting. Progressive liberals really do buy into the stereotyping, dont they? And they dont know a damn thing about firearms or safety.....

Betcha the closest that actor's gotten to rural US was the backlot studio this BS commercial was filmed on. Love the metrosexual beard too. Only thing missing was a bible sitting on that tailgate and a stars n'bars sticker on the ball cap.

My version of the commercial would have ended with some old grandma standing over him after she's smacked the beard off his face and reminded him the Second Amendment doesnt have a damn thing to do with deer hunting. Then she'd stomp on his raisins for good measure.

Keep emailing Toomey, tell him to not even THINK to go along with the gun grabbers.

Quote:Sharpton & Barnicle Agree: Anti-Semitism Explains Opposition To Bloomberg On Gun Control

On Morning Joe today, the Reverend Al Sharpton agreed with Mike Barnicle that anti-Semitism explains the opposition to Mike Bloomberg in his gun control campaign. H/t NB reader cobokat.

If ever there were an expert on anti-Semitism in America, it could be Al Sharpton, he of Freddie's Fashion Mart and Crown Heights riot infamy. The spectacle of Sharpton lamenting the supposed anti-Semitism of others was ironic, if not repulsive. Note that Dan Senor, who might also know something about anti-Semitism, being Jewish and having attended university in Israel, rejected the notion. View the video after the jump.
