Bloomberg on Virginia election: Home state of NRA stood up and said, 'Enough'

Michael Bloomberg is the most well-known mayor in the nation – for another 55 days. But Bloomberg has already expanded his reach beyond New York City, with his coalition Mayors Against Illegal Guns and his political advocacy group Independence USA PAC.

Bloomberg dared to poke the bee hive, wading into the National Rifle Association's home state to back Democratic candidate Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia governor's race. McAuliffe eked out a win over Republican state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli Tuesday night.

    Anybody with mental health issues should be denied possession of a firearm.
    Anybody opposed to gun control has mental health issues.

    If you had 12 NRA members in a room, and one them suggested they play Russian roulette.with a loaded revolver
    How many of them would die?
    if you said 6 you would be wrong.
    the correct answer is all 12
    . the 1st 6 shot himselfs one after another till the gun was empty.
    then one of the last remaining 6 NRA members would re-load as fast as he could.
    After all what good is a gun with no bullets in it?
