New York, NY - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says a new NRA Web video that labels President Barack Obama an “elitist hypocrite” is “dumb PR.”

In an appearance Thursday on “CBS This Morning,” the mayor said: “You have to be stupid to do that.”

The video’s narrator asks why Obama is skeptical of putting armed security in schools when his daughters are protected by armed guards in their own school.

The White House has called the NRA ad “repugnant and cowardly.”

Bloomberg, who’s a strong gun control advocate, said the NRA was itself hypocritical for coming out with a video shooting game app.

After the Newtown, Conn., tragedy, the NRA blamed violent video games and movies, not guns, for contributing to mass shootings.

This question is for the n.r.a.
Please explain because I don't understand how mass shootings can happen just by watching violent video games and movies without having guns?

Very simple. Inanimate objects don't have the free will to commit crimes. They require a criminal to use them for a criminal purpose (see California; Chicago).

In places where there is no strong crime culture there are few murders even with prolific firearm ownership (see Switzerland; Israel).

No, Mr Bloomberg You have to be stupid to do what you are doing! Taking last chance of good citizens to protect themselves.
If you are a thug, and you know how to beat people up, and you for sure have a knife, and sometimes a gun too (because they want listen to your stupid and twisted ideas) - a regular person stands no chance to protect his family against that thug!
O, I forgot, it doesn't apply to you, you have enough $ to have security 24/7 around you!

Bloomberg has no problem paying for 24/7 security guards, surveilance cameras, etc. He soesn't comprehend that other people need to carry guns with themselves while being outside or at home

Its incredible how you people think and how brainwashed youve been by the media and Hollywood.

Id venture that most of you commentators against guns dont know the slightest thing about them.

There are VERY VERY few mass shootings, its a product of modern day media that bankrolls on tragedy that flashes this news non stop for days / weeks.

If there are no guns, killers resort to other stuff, like the terrorists in Israel that used a tractor or took over a bus and crashed it etc..

Gun control on the federal level will never get my support. For a few reasons:

Many of those pushing gun control, are worse off than my craziest gun nut friends.

They are exploiting sandy hook and dead children, they are prying on raw emotions and feelings of the american people "oh look, its a tragedy, we must act!!"

And if a teacher saved her class from a bear, would you demand all teachers carry guns ?!?

This NRA ad is an insult to any normal person's intelligence. It is the equivalent of saying "if someone who has to transport millions of dollars through a bad neighborhood can have guns; then everyone should be allowed to have guns". Irrespective of what your views are on Gun Control this is a ridiculous ad and it is disturbing to me that the NRA thinks that the average American is stupid enough to not see how illogical and ridiculous this ad is

The Nazis were a left wing party. (National Socialists)
One of the first things they did was confiscate all the guns.
It is a necessary step in a tyrannical regime.

Obama was using children as 'human shields' in his propaganda campaign.
Shame on him.
We need the NRA to protect our freedoms.

whether or not you disagree with the nra, there is no denying that rich liberals typically want to ban guns for everyone but themselves. a typical hollywood lib has top security ,including guns,for him/her self and family but somehow the rest of us can't be trusted to protect ourselves.
