Bloomberg's Bogus Blather

As is usually the case when he speaks, New York City's major got it completely wrong in his bombastic comments about how police officers view private citizens owning firearms.  The facts are set forth in this analytical essay.

In addition to pointing out Mr. Bloomberg's factual errors, lack of understanding, and ignorance, as well as his despicable efforts to incite fearful emotions in anyone listening to him, the essay makes these salient points:

*  When victims face a criminal by themselves, guns are critical for self-defense.

*  [W]e have the evidence of multiple occasions when mass shootings were prevented by civilians, and

*  [T]here is no case on record of a [concealed carry] permit holder accidentally shooting a bystander.
