THROWBACK! Michael Bloomberg Suggests Disarming Minorities

Aspen, Colorado — Much has been made during this election cycle of former New York CIty Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s spending of over $100 million in 2018 to elect hard-left gun-grabbers across the country.

Long the the billionaire financier of the anti-gun movement, his crusade to destroy your Second Amendment rights has spanned more than two decades.

Three years ago, he was caught on audio at an Aspen Institute event in Aspen, Colorado suggesting minorities should be banned from having guns in order to stop them from killing each other.

Here’s the report from the Washington Times:

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg reportedly argued Friday that guns need to be kept out of the hands of minorities in order to keep them alive.

While speaking at the Aspen Institute, Mr. Bloomberg, 72, said 95 percent of murders fall into a specific category: a male minority between the ages of 15 and 25, The Aspen Times reported.

“These kids think they’re going to get killed anyway because all their friends are getting killed,” said Mr. Bloomberg, who funds the gun-control advocacy group Everytown for Gun Safety. “They just don’t have any long-term focus or anything. It’s a joke to have a gun. It’s a joke to pull a trigger.”

Mr. Bloomberg brought up the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practices, recalling a time during his last year in office when a Baptist minster in Harlem invited him to speak at their church, The Times reported.

“While I’m sitting there waiting for him to introduce me, he said to his congregation, ‘You know, if every one of you stopped and frisked your kid before they went out at night, the mayor wouldn’t have to do it,’” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And so I knew I was going to be OK with that audience.”
