Bloomberg Hires His Cop Bodyguards So They Can Defend Him With the Guns He Hates (For the Rest of Us)

John Lott’s Website: Hypocrisy: Michael Bloomberg taking his police security detail with him as he leaves the mayor’s office

Bloomberg understands why someone such as himself wants armed body guards, but he has no sympathy for mere private citizens who probably face even greater risks from crime.  From the New York Post:

The move means the cops will all hit the jackpot — pocketing cushy pensions and new “six-figure salaries” to keep serving the outgoing mayor, whose eponymous business-media empire has made him the seventh-richest person in America. . .

And now he’s spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to make sure that you never get your hands on the sort of weapons carried by his Praetorian Guard on the job of protecting him.

You filthy peasant, you.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
