Front Sight’s Monday Blog: Bloomberg Needs REAL Gun Control
August 26th, 2012
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg needs to implement REAL gun control after two of his officers wounded nine bystanders as they attempted to stop an armed suspect no more than 5 yards in front of them!
That’s right, the suspect as you will see in the surveillance video is no more than 5 yards in front of them, yet two of Bloomberg’s finest, wounded nine innocent bystanders in the process of bringing the suspect to the ground.
Bloomberg needs to make sure his New York City Cops can control their guns. Gun Control is the ability hit what you are aiming at to immediately stop a lethal confrontation. It is best done with two hands on the weapon!
Watch this video surveillance camera footage of the shooting and then send Bloomberg an e-mail or two telling him to send New York’s Finest out to Front Sight for some real gun control.

I’m not blaming the New York City Cops for their miserable hit ratio, which historically is below 25% and was likely well below 25% in this shooting, if you don’t count all the hits they put on innocent bystanders! I’m blaming Bloomberg and the New York City police administration for failing to provide proper training for their police officers and failing to encourage or pay for their officers to train regularly and repeatedly.
As you know from my previous blogs, I think Bloomberg is insane for believing that disarming responsible law abiding citizens will somehow reduce violent crime, especially when all statistics over the last 20 years prove otherwise.
I also despise Bloomberg for his political grandstanding and calls for even more gun restrictions any time some drug crazed nut case attacks innocent people who were disarmed by the same Unarmed Victim laws Bloomberg supports.
Now Bloomberg needs to get a political haircut for the dismal performance of two of his officers in a shooting situation that ANY Front Sight student could have handled 100 times better. It is time for Bloomberg to implement REAL gun control in New York City and at least get his officers properly trained.
Take a look at this pathetic press conference where Bloomberg has to announce that his officers wounded nine bystanders!
Geez, EVERYBODY would have been safer if his officers had stayed back and simply followed the suspect until a private citizen with a CCW was in the area to take the suspect out.
I’m serious! Armed private citizens, especially Concealed Weapon Permit Holders have a MUCH higher hit ratio than law enforcement.
Want an example? A couple of weeks ago, a good ole boy with a revolver made a 150+ yard shot to SAVE a police officer who was missing the suspect at a much closer distance with his patrol rifle!
Check out this video and see what an armed and trained private citizen is capable of doing…
Hey Bloomberg, this good ole boy from Texas knows what gun control is all about… Hitting what you are aiming at!
As a side note, when I produced and narrated Front Sight’s 26 episode reality TV series, Front Sight Challenge, there was only ONE out of the 80 contestants who participated in the show that MISSED the ENTIRE target in the Do or Die Drill. You guessed it… A New York City Cop!
You can see that part of the episode here…
So once again New York City Mayor, Michael Bloomberg is wrong.
Well, I always try to be part of the solution and not just point fingers at problems so let me help you out Michael. Let me help New York City’s Finest, and the great people of New York City.
If you, Michael Bloomberg, will at least acknowledge to me that you have personally read my blog on the Insanity of Gun Control and acknowledge after reviewing the videos in that blog that ARMED and TRAINED responsible citizens are a deterrent to gun crime, I will put my money where my mouth is and Front Sight will train EVERY police officer and every citizen of New York City (who can pass a criminal background check) free of charge!
That’s right Michael. We will train your officers free of charge and train every responsible citizen of your fine city as well!
All you have to do is read my blog and acknowledge that if they are allowed to be armed and trained, your fine citizens would be a deterrent to violent crime, just as every armed and trained citizen in every other city in the United States is a deterrent to violent crime.
What do you say Michael? Are you ready for some REAL Gun Control in New York City? I’ll bet your citizens and police officers are ready.
Let me help you. Give me a call…
