This video is VERY nicely done, but contains loads of bullshit:

I love how they are so tricky… one minute they are “against gun violence” (Yea… who isn’t?  I don’t know anyone pro gun who is like I LOVE GUN VIOLENCE, innocent people dying is awesome.  Like what the hell? *smh*), and now all of the sudden they are the experts on safe storage and gun safety (2:37)?  If you read their website and facebook page, and recognize the fact they are backed by Michael Bloomberg’s money it’s not hard to see they want guns gone, period.  This video is sneaky though.

Moms-Demand-Gun-Bans-Little-Red-Ridinghood3:33 – “In the 2014 election we worked to pass a ballot initiative in Washington state that requires criminal background checks for all gun sales, keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.”    AHAHHAHAHAHHA *falls off back of chair laughing so hard* riiiight.

3:58 – Another zinger… “We’ve passed laws which keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers”.   Wow *slow clap* amazing how they think putting something down in words is actually doing something.  I’m sure criminals are shaking in their boots.

In an upcoming Batman: Arkham Knight video game:

Batman-2nd-AmendmentApparently it’s also in the Batman: Arkham City video game released in 2011.  I don’t ever remember seeing the anti-gun gun in movies, but correct me if I’m wrong.

Was Batman not always anti-gun?  The picture I used for this post is a scan from a comic book, but I’m wondering if there is a reason he has a gun in the context of the story. Doing a google image search for “batman gun” shows numerous instances where he in fact seems to embrace guns in various comics. Some of it actually appears to be fan art.

I’d be slipping if I didn’t say the GameSpot host is cute.

Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety at work:

0:05 – Don’t be a pansy and dwell on it… 50 Cent got shot more times than you and he turned it into something positive; a few-hundred-million dollar business.

gun-control-works0:14 – Professional victim Colin Goddard’s token appearance. “I heard you guys were doing something to do with gun control?  I WANT IN.  PLEEEEEEEEASE?”.  I bet Colin never even rubbed Bio-Oil on those scars, just so they would turn out the scariest and he could use them to score TV spots and gun control chicks.

Millions with $25 bucks:

If you join the NRA your money will go towards making sure Bloomberg wastes every penny of his.

The NRA is definitely a powerful voice which costs them a LOT of money every year (See this 2011 tax return)… It’s safe to say that $32.1 Billion (net worth) Bloomberg has way more money in the bank.  I think Mikey probably figures $50 Million is enough to spend on this little gun control hobby, and he’s comfortable making some moms and hippies happy while losing every last penny.

NRA-Bloomberg-Millions0: 15 – Does sister act always wear that 32 inch cross or was it subtly planted for the video? :P

People were shitting a brick on the internet yesterday regarding these two pictures:

Everytown-For-Gun-Safety-Fake-Ad-1

Everytown-For-Gun-Safety-Fake-Ad-2

Yea, really dumb for obvious reasons which I’m not even going to bother getting into.  After 2 seconds worth of research though, you can see that the facebook link at the bottom of Everytown.org actually links to this facebook page, not the everytownforgunsafety.org one.

I’ll give them points for creative trolling.  Subtle enough they fooled a lot of people because the rest of the facebook page looked legit.

Michael-BloombergIf you missed the talk about Bloomberg’s $50 Everytown For Gun Safety check the link.  That initial fake page was taken down as predicted.

I also posted a great What if Guns And Cars Were Treated Alike comparison a while back you should check out.

An anti-gun group NYC Mayor Bloomberg created.  This is the first promo video:

Not bad… not bad.  Nothing we haven’t seen before though… work on your creativity Bloomberg. In fact it’s basically identical to the “The Monster Is Real” video I posted last week.  Why a girl that age has not be educated on guns is what baffles me.  Hopefully other kids her age additionally know not to drink poison and not to stick her hand in the garbage disposal and a long list of other things that could kill them.

$32.1 Billion Dollar Bloomberg plans on sinking $50 Million into this group to curb gun violence and hopes to eventually outmuscle the NRA according to this NY Times article.  Good for him!  I’m happy for him that he has $50 Million that he literally wont miss, which he can spend on his hobby.  I wish I were in the same position, but instead of spending $50 Million on gun control I’d split the money up between Glock, some rifle companies, and some ammunition companies in order to arm true Americans.  I’d hand “free gun and ammo” certificates out like Santa everywhere I go.

Some more “Everytown for Gun Safety” news… someone hi-jacked the name of the Facebook page before his group got a chance to register it:

Everytown-For-Gun-Safety

Wow actual “gun safety” tips that would save lives… Imagine that.

Frankly I don’t see the big deal about that besides it’s a bit “heh” funny.  You don’t think someone worth $32.1 billion dollars could get that name back in 30 seconds if he wanted it?  Trust me, he could get Mark Zuckerberg on the phone before I finish typing this sentence if he wanted to.  Hell when you have 32.1 billion dollars and are a guy that loves power as much as Bloomberg you could probably get Zukerberg to cough up the names and addresses of everyone who “liked” the page… and then have them all mysteriously die in “accidents”.

OHHHHH SHIT.  Hitler as Bloomberg in a Downfall subtitle parody:

Michael-BloombergHilarious.
