So, they caught a pipe bomber in New York City the other day -- nipping in the bud a nitwit who, with the help of an al-Qaida online magazine, was turning a JD prank into a more-serious threat.
NYC's mayor, the odious Bloomberg, offered up this soundbite: "This is a city that people [who] would want to take away our freedoms gravitate to and focus on."
Funny you should mention that, sir. There's a major anti-freedom group headquartered in your city that-- Oh, you've heard of MAIG? You bankrolled it? You run it?
Hunh. So, the difference between you and the pipe-bomber is what, exactly? He was after harming victims directly, while you'd just disarm them and leave them for thugs?
(Wikipedia's section on MAIG mayors with criminal histories has been expunged -- again -- but a few are listed here. Tsk, and we're supposed to take their advice?)
