Anti Gun Mayor Bloomberg Takes Armed Security Detail to Bermuda, Where Guns Are Outlawed
For the most part, not even the police forces in Bermuda are armed. However, there is one person who is well protected by a full, armed security detail when he travels there – anti gun NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
The Washington Times reports that the mayor has traveled to the island with armed security before. This requires a special exemption for his guards as guns are mostly prohibited there.
This just goes to show the hypocrisy that anti gunners possess. We have hollywood celebrities who enjoy the protection of private, armed body guards and politicans who enjoy security details and/or Secret Service protection (usually armed with heavy firepower), but the hard working, middle class shouldn’t be allowed to have more than 10 rounds of ammunition to defend ourselves?
This isn’t the first time the mayor has been called out over this hypocrisy.
Video blogger, author, radio host, and journalist Jason Mattera was harassed by Mayor Bloomberg’s armed NYPD security detail after asking the mayor if he would disarm his personal security detail in the spirit of gun control.
Mattera was followed by an NYPD officer serving as security for several blocks after asking the mayor the question. It should be noted they were NOT in New York at this time, but that didn’t stop this ARMED NY cop from harassing a journalist.
Just more examples of the do as we say, not as we do crowd.
This is coming just days after it was found out that Jim Carrey, who released a classless music video mocking gun owners and the deceased actor Charlton Heston, also enjoys the protection of an armed bodyguard.
