We Don’t Need Bloomberg’s Nanny State Restrictions

It’s pretty clear by now that billionaire and former NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, is not a fan of the Second Amendment. In fact, he has already dropped millions of dollars in Maine just to dictate how, when and where you can shoot, lend or purchase a firearm.

While many Mainers fail to understand why a New Yorker would care at all about how law-abiding Mainers exercise their rights, on their own property, in the second-safest state in the nation, Question 3 is really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Bloomberg’s pet projects.

Mr. Bloomberg, also referred to as “Nanny Bloomberg,” believes that you need someone to make your decisions for you and that there are times when government “should infringe on your freedom.”

Bloomberg made the headlines regularly during his tenure as Mayor for all sorts of far-reaching “health initiatives” that were designed to limit choices and control the behavior of New Yorkers.

In a 2011 interview with the Huffington Post, Bloomberg went as far as to take credit for the fact that New York City residents are living longer.

So just to give you an idea of who is funneling money into Maine’s “Universal” background check initiative, here’s a list of some other nanny-state initiatives Bloomberg has supported in the past:

It is safe to say that as long as Bloomberg has cash on hand, he will do everything he can to restrict personal freedoms and find a way for government to extend its overreaching arm into our lives, but his nanny-state policies do not belong in our neck of the woods.
