It may be hypocrisy for them but that’s not even a glimmer of a thought to them. People don’t exist except to control and use for men like Bloomberg. Whatever the end game is in their mind it can’t be achieved if the population has guns. They are also scared of losing their power if the population uses it’s weapons against them. The US could have a new system in one day if people were united. It’s one of the reasons there is pressure to control Internet content. If 100,000 armed men meet at the mall in front of the capital tomorrow with a unified idea, no one could prevent them from doing anything they wanted to do. Right now the fact that gun owners are peaceful and law abiding holds everything together. If the population were to be incited to violence on a large scale it’s game over.
