Hypocrisy: Mayor Bloomberg Ducks Question On Why He Advocates Gun Control, Yet Has Armed Security

Wynton Hall at reports on an incident when a reporter asked the New York City Mayor a question about gun control.

In an explosive exchange outside the U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington, D.C., security guards for billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg accosted senior Talk Radio Network investigative reporter Jason Mattera when he asked the mayor about his strong support for gun control.

In the video, Bloomberg is seen surrounded by security. Mattera approaches Bloomberg and asks, “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?”

Bloomberg’s reply: “Uh, you, we’ll get right back to you.”

“Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?” Mattera asks as the mayor walks away. “Look at the team of security you’ve got. And you’re an advocate for gun control?” 

You can read the rest of the piece and watch the video via the below link:

Note: The question asked is a good one; why do liberal gun control advocates, from Obama on down, all have armed security officers?

I also question what authority a New York City police officer has to question anyone, let alone an accredited reporter, in Washington D.C.
