TITUSVILLE, FL – Gun rights expert John M. Snyder blasted New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg today for his “helicopter hypocrisy.” He said Bloomy’s lack of respect for local regulations shows he does not have high regard for people, including their right to obtain the guns they need to protect themselves from violent criminals.
Snyder said that, “the helicopter controversy in New York shows that Bloomberg is quite willing to trample on the interests and rights of the people if he thinks he can get away with it.
“The helicopter controversy developed when a New Yorker filmed Bloomberg flying his vehicle from a heliport outside of approved hours and days. After neighborhood dwellers brought the mayor’s action to public attention, Bloomberg said he would not fly his helicopter outside the approved times.”
Snyder said, “This controversy underscores the belief that Bloomberg and his ilk really do not hold the interests of the people at heart but only pretend to do so in order to curry public favor.
“The same is true of Bloomberg’s national gun control campaign. He and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns say that want the public to be protected from violent criminals. However, their calls for more and more gun control, if implemented, would further the disarmament of law-abiding citizens in the face of attacks by violent criminals.”
Snyder has been named the gun dean by Human Events, a conservative weekly newspaper published in Washington, D.C., the dean of gun lobbyists by The Washington Post and The New York Times, and the senior rights activist in Washington by Shotgun News.
