Columbus mayor takes on gun shows!

Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman took on gun show operators in his state of the city address on Wednesday in Columbus.

"Lions and tigers and bears, oh My!"....uh, I meant "gansters and criminals and drug pushers, oh My!"
It must kill him to wake up every morning and realize that one of the busiest and biggest gun stores in the country is located in his city..

Demanding background checks at gun shows, he rehashed the same song and dance we have heard from his friends in the Bloomberg no fun gang, He points out to all the "criminals and gangsters" that he knows are buying their weapons at legitimate gun shows staffed and patrolled by real police officers....He actually uses "Gangsters, criminals and drug pushers" in the same sentence..I would think just using the term "criminals" would of included the other two categories...

I have stated before that I have no basic issue with running background checks at these things as long as it is quick, cheap and efficient. None of which I am sure would be implimented by this city. The fact that I know he has other anti-gun agendas that he is using this as a springboard to launch in the future puts a solid stamp of disapproval on the idea for me.

...in other news he is seeking to revitalize the local economy in part via "A private developer, aided by state environmental cleanup money, will turn two nearby factories into more space where creative types can work and live." because well all know how a couple of guys making paintings and artwork out of discarded toilets and stuff can really boost the economy and provide hundreds of good paying jobs to our unemployed....

...and by the way, why he is against "commoners" carrying firearms for protection in his city he has armed bodyguards assigned to protect him and his family 24/7 at my expense...

Pic totally unrelated to the mayors actions but fits well with the story....

Mayor Coleman mentally projected this on the screen at Veterans Memorial using his Jedi mind powers....not
