As you know I have been somewhat friendly toward Kansas City Mayor Funkhouser in the past. But, unfortunately, my support is dwindling to nothing as mentioned in this previous post. My biggest qualm is Mayor Funkhouser’s support of a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns. You see, it is a group that was started by Mayor Michael Bloomberg with the intention of helping stop violence by focusing on “illegal” firearms. Now, the problem is, I am still unsure just what an illegal firearm is? It’s really called a semantics game, and Progressives are great champions of it. Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been shown to clearly be anti-second amendment and continues to prove it on a regular basis.
For those that haven’t heard, Mayor Bloomberg recently made an asinine comment about who may have caused the New York City attempted terrorist bombing. If you haven’t heard it yet here is the quote:
“homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person, someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something, it could be anything”
I’m sorry, but excuse me! Why is it the left naturally assumes that the next Timothy McVeigh is out there waiting in the midst of the Tea Party. It’s obvious Mayor Bloomberg has no respect for the right side of the political aisle.
So this leads me to my questions for Mayor Funkhouser:
1) We know you are a liberal, you love President Obama, and you have championed yourself as a moderate who wants to reach out. We also know that you have been to New York and visited with Mayor Bloomberg. Mayor Funkhouser can you denounce this type of rhetoric?
2) Mr. Mayor, how can you rationally support any political interest of Mayor Bloomberg’s when he makes such hateful and spiteful comments?
3)) Will you continue to support Mayor Bloomberg’s MAIG? The comment that he has made is indicative of Mayor Bloomberg’s antipathy toward the individuals on the right. If he believes we are capable of doing something like the car bomb in Times Square, who knows what he thinks we are capable of with firearms? For many on the right the second amendment is the most sacred of all rights, it is America’s First Freedom, and Mayor Bloomberg continues to wage his own war against it.
Mr. Mayor do the right thing here, resign from MAIG, and denounce Mayor Bloomberg’s comments!
