Every gun owner knows that the basic tenet of firearm safety is treating every weapon as if it’s loaded. You would think that someone who wants to take away your right to protect yourself, or someone without a recent lobotomy, would know that guns can hurt you, or something.
Announcing New York City’s “largest gun seizure” in history today, Mayor Michael Bloomberg stood next to a banquet table of 254 handguns pointing directly at the audience.
“There is no doubt that the seizure of these guns has saved lives,” Bloomie said at the press conference.
Twitter user @Todd_Harwood also reported that the guns are not locked back into the open position, another gun safety rule violation, the Blaze reported.
Police seized 254 weapons from a pair of gunrunners in dozens of transactions since last year. The alleged smugglers, Walter Walker and Earl Campbell, were among 19 arrested in New York, North Carolina and South Carolina as the result of a 10-month investigation, the Blaze reported.
