Bloomberg suggests police strike in demand for gun control

We've reported on New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's calls for more gun control in the wake of last week's tragic shooting in Colorado. Namely, he wants more gun control. But in an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan, Bloomberg demonstrated just how far he'd go to fulfill his radical agenda:

PIERS MORGAN: Every time one of these things happens, Gabrielle Giffords last year, this shooting here, there's an outrage, and then, very quickly, it dissipates. The American people quite quickly go back to their normal lives and they don't demand action in the way that I would expect them to. Why do so many Americans not feel angry enough to demand further gun control?

MICHAEL BLOOMBERG NEW YORK MAYOR: Well, I would take it one step further. I don't understand why the police officers across this country don't stand up collectively and say we're gonna go on strike, we're not gonna protect you unless you, the public, through your legislature, do what's required to keep us safe.

After all, police officers want to go home to their families, and we're doing everything we can to make their job more difficult, but, more importantly, more dangerous, by leaving guns in the hands of people who shouldn't have them and letting people who have those guns buy things like armor-piercing bullets. The only reason to have an armor-piercing bullet is to go through a bullet-resistant vest.
