From the Center for the Center: Why would Bloomberg, if he believes a “gun nut” threatened him with the “ricin” letter, potentially endanger himself, his family and others with an immediate “prepared” statement about gun control? Recent “letter threats” have turned out not to be as they first appeared . . . Could it be to get gun control back in the news for a megalomaniac mayor who is increasingly irrelevant . . .
“Law enforcement sources paraphrased the letters’ message as saying, “This is a taste of what’s to come if you come to take my gun.”
[Bloomberg]: “In terms of why they’ve done it, I don’t know. The letter was obviously referred to our anti-gun efforts but there’s 12,000 people who are going to get killed this year with guns and 19,000 are going to commit suicide with guns and we’re not gonna walk away from those efforts,” Bloomberg said.“
