An attendee asked Mike Bloomberg why he pushes gun control for the common man while using armed security personnel for himself.

The attendee said, “You have an armed security detail that is likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines you seek to ban the common citizen from owning. Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s?”

Bloomberg responded by admitting to having an armed detail, but added that he needs armed protection because he gets more threats than the common man.

More from Breitbart:

The New York Post reported on Bloomberg referring to the NYPD as his “own army,” while Mayor of New York City. And on January 25, 2019, NRA-ILA reported that after his tenure as mayor ended, “Bloomberg hired some of the same [NYPD] officers from his security detail to work for him privately.” Yet he continued to push gun control for average Americans.

So Bloomberg is campaigning on gun control for the common man but availing himself of good guys with guns for self-protection.
