    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg may prefer "No Labels" but in his case, I think "gun grabber" is a pretty fitting one. As part of his misguided crusade to tighten up gun laws nationally,

    The New York Times reports that Hizzoner sent undercover cops to gun shows in Arizona and found they were violating the law:

    In two instances, the New York undercover officers specifically said before buying a gun, “I probably couldn’t pass a background check,” but were still sold guns, city officials said. In a third case, an investigator bought a Glock pistol and two high-capacity magazines like the ones used in the Tucson shooting. Such purchases were made without any background check but were perfectly legal.

    Mr. Bloomberg’s office, which will release details of the undercover investigation on Monday, has for years pushed for tighter firearms laws. Since the Tucson shooting, Mr. Bloomberg has enlisted in his effort Daniel Hernandez, an intern in the office of Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona. The congresswoman was the most seriously wounded, and Mr. Hernandez held her until emergency personnel arrived.

    Thos "officers" should be arrested and so should Bloomberg. According to current Federal gun laws, they made straw purchases. They need to be sent to federal pound me in the ass prison.

    Bloomy should worry more about crime in NY and the financial mess of his doings.

    the No Labels crowd is a bunch of Liberals that don't want to admit that they are. I follow their crap on facebook and any time I make comments they jump down my throat for blindly following my "handlers"

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Yep. That's RICO for Bloomberg. Definitely should be hauled out of City Hall and marched right down to the federal courthouse.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    The only reason Bloomberg did this was for political gain. He had no business in TX of all places. Where did the officers get the funds to pay for this out of jurisdiction investigation, NY is broke? What was the purpose of the investigation, they could not effect an arrest?

    The only reason was a liberal mayor was attempting to make political points in a Conservative state. He should be removed from office.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
