His past is coming back to haunt him…
During a Fox News town hall, Bloomberg was asked by an audience member about his “strong opposition to the Second Amendment while employing a team of armed security guards to protect him.”
He was asked, “How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines that you seek to ban the common citizen from owning? Does your life matter more than mine or my families or these people’s?”
Bloomberg responded with, “Look, I probably get 40 or 50 threats every week and some of them are real. That just happens when you are the mayor of New York City, or you’re very wealthy, or you’re campaigning for president of the United States, you get lots of threats.”
“So, I have a security detail, I pay for it all myself. They’re all retired police officers who are very well trained in firearms. Let me talk about firearms for a second, the Second Amendment gives you the right to bear arms, nobody is suggests that you’re going to change the Constitution, even if you wanted to I don’t think you’d get it done. So nobody is going to take away your right to bear arms.”
