Lies, Damned Lies…

and things Michael Bloomberg says.

 “Government should not tell you what to do unless there’s a compelling public purpose.” He sees no such purpose in blocking same-sex marriage.

Nice of him to pick and choose which activities the government should be allowed to interfere with based solely on his personal opinions.

    He did say “compelling public purpose.” One would think that keeping guns out of the hands of terrorists would count as a compelling public purpose, while same-sex marriage harms no one and therefore does not.

    I disagree that preventing people who have not been convicted of a felony, adjudicated mentally incompetent or otherwise legally prevented from possessing a firearm from purchasing one simply because they have been placed on a list which has no legal standing, and which you A: can’t find out if you are on, B: if you were, couldn’t find out how you got placed on it and C: have no recourse for having your name removed actually serves a “compelling public purpose”.
