Who do you think "Our" means when they say "Diversity is our strength"?

The Fox News article goes on to describe two of the ads that will be playing in select states. Both of them feature men who support the 2nd Amendment, or so they say, but are quick to say that our rights come with certain responsibilities. The responsibility they specifically mention are comprehensive background checks. What is implied, but not stated, is that those comprehensive background checks are aimed at the purchases you and I, American citizens who are legally allowed to own and carry a gun, via the 2nd Amendment, would conduct. In other words, we would undergo a background check when we purchase a gun.

While that sounds innocent enough, stop and ask yourself this question. Letís say we submit to a background check and fulfill our responsibility as an American citizen. Who will be doing the background checks on the criminals who have no qualms about not following the law in the first place? Isnít that why they are called criminals? Should law-abiding American citizens be subjected to something that will do nothing to control what the very name of Mayor Bloombergís group says it is against? Remember, they call themselves Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Does that mean they want to go after illegal guns and the criminals who use them? Or does it mean Bloomberg is more interested in controlling the guns you and I are allowed to own?
Yeah, he's more interested in just controlling guns.

Screw king Bloomberg.

Oh yeah, and DUPE

Bloomberg is part of the problem. He's got lots of money to brain wash the public about guns. He should be ashamed of himself.

Who really listens to him anyway? Let him waist his money with his stupid adds it won't fix or help anything. He should give the money to help fix AB109 letting parolees out and to mental health programs, but he's too stupid to put money where it's really needed. I think he's living in Germany and want to control our thoughts.

Dupe -
No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems - of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.
- Thomas Sowell
I've been saying that for years ...

There is no value at all complaining or analyzing or reading tea leaves to decide what these bills really mean or actually do; any bill with a chance to pass will be bad for gun owners.

The details only count after the Governor signs the bills.

Not a lawyer, just Some Guy On The Interwebs.
