Guilty

According to Michael Bloomberg, that’s what you are if you own a gun. Circumstances are irrelevant. Legality of purchase is irrelevant. And one of the world’s largest retail corporations is now collaborating with him:

Creating a record and alert system to record when a gun sold at Wal-Mart is later used in a crime. If the purchaser of that gun later tries to buy another gun at Wal-Mart, the system would alert the sales clerk of the prior buy and could refuse to make the sale.

Retaining the recorded images of gun sales in case law enforcement wants to view them later as part of an investigation.

So you legally purchase a gun. Your house is broken into and you are burglarized. Among other items taken is your firearm. The thief later gets caught using it to commit another crime. Who gets punished for it?

You do. Wal-Mart will refuse to sell you another firearm.

Bloomberg is already on record as equating gun owners as rapists and pedophiles. In the same article, he is on record as advocating torture. What? You missed it? Here’s the quote:

It also includes toughening penalties for possession of illegal guns, intensive interrogating of suspects toting illegal guns so the source of the weapons can be better traced…

In Bloomberg’s New York, only the rich and well-connected may legally carry a firearm for personal self defense. If you are carrying a firearm without approval of the ruling elite, your gun is illegal. Remember that. It doesn’t matter that you carry it only for self defense, it doesn’t matter that you have never and never intend to commit a crime with it. Simply possessing it is illegal. Do you want to gamble on how “intensive” those “interrogations” might get?
