Bloomberg Challenges Obama On Gun Control

Michael Bloomberg, not satisfied with conspiracy to commit a felony in Arizona, is now pushing Obama on gun control according to the Washington Post.
And he is now on a media blitz to push Obama on the issue. The White House has said Obama will soon "address" the issue of gun control, but it has been vague on exactly what he will say or whether he will propose any additional funding or new laws.

"The president should stand up" on gun issues, Bloomberg said in an appearance Tuesday on "The Rachel Maddow Show." He added, "It's one of the issues he can build a legacy on."
I'm not sure that Obama wants his legacy to be a one-term President.

Here is the video from the Rachel Maddow show. The discussion of gun control starts at about the one minute mark.

If any prosecutor had the gumption enough, he ought to seek an indictment of Bloomberg for conspiracy. If the private investigator buyers are non-residents of Arizona and Bloomberg funded them, no matter what his good intentions were, this is conspiracy to violate Federal gun laws which is a felony. However, I doubt any charges will ever be brought against Bloomberg.

    I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO VERIFY THIS, but I got an email saying that the Democrats are going to try to sneak Carolyn McCarthy’s full-capacity magazine ban into the FAA bill today. Anybody know anything about this?
