Old saw: Figures don't lie, but liars do figure.
The whole thing is about power and control. You cannot wield power and control the masses as long as those masses are armed.
No less a personage than Isoroku Yamamoto realized this when he said that the mainland of the United States could never be invaded because, "there would be a gun behind every blade of grass."
Bloomberg and all the other like-minded anti-gun folks are all about power and control. They will use every argument, deception, and flat-out lie that it takes to achieve their goals. This, btw, includes a whole bunch over at the UN.
Personal opinion: Vote the American clowns out of office and then take two further actions: Get the United States out of the UN and then get the UN out of the United States. I firmly believe that the majority of nations in the UN hate the United States for no other reason than we have rights and freedoms they can only dream about.
