Blaze contributor S.E. Cupp took just 17 seconds to explain why former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns has “crumbled” and failed to make the case for more gun control.
“Mayors Against Illegal Guns has crumbled because he duped mayors into thinking they were actually going to fight illegal guns,” Cupp — who contributes to TheBlaze’s “Real News” and host CNN’s “Crossfire” — said during a discussion on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday. “And when they all found out actually they were going after law-abiding gun owners, they said, ‘that’s not what I want to be apart of.’ His efforts are duplicitous and they’re measurably failing.”

As reported by NewsBusters, Cupp also said Bloomberg’s strategy to go after the National Rifle Association is a “very odd thing” because the gun rights group doesn’t represent criminal or even gun manufacturers.
“The NRA represents law-abiding gun owners, like myself, they don’t represent criminals. They don’t event represent gun manufacturers,” she said earlier in the segment. “So why Mayor Bloomberg is turning his figurative guns on people like me when there are criminals out there seems a very strange way to go about reducing gun crime. His efforts on this issue have been measurable failures.”
Bloomberg recently announced he plans to spend $50 million to combat the NRA in the form of an anti-gun campaign called “Everytown for Gun Safety.”
