Bloomberg Gun Giveaway

It’s like Guns for Tots, only with real guns. Some Virginians are getting Mike Bloomberg’s panties all knotted up by giving away firearms in his honor:

Openly armed firearms enthusiasts packed a normally sedate government building, hoping to win a pistol or rifle and at the same time send a defiant message to gun-control advocates, especially New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The Virginia Citizens Defense League, a gun-rights group, organized the “Bloomberg Gun Giveaway” in large part to thumb its nose at Bloomberg, who accuses some shops of allowing illegal purchases of firearms that later were used in crimes in his city…

Anybody who showed up at Thursday’s event was eligible for the drawing – except Bloomberg and his immediate family.

Asked Thursday about the giveaway, Bloomberg said, “I think it’s sick, is the nicest ways to phrase it.”

Speaking of Virginia and guns, the new V-Tech Rampage game is causing lots of outrage. I’m outraged myself, mostly because the game itself is so lame. It looks and plays like it was designed for the Commodore 64.
