“Jason Mattera accosted by security over asking Mayor Bloomberg a gun control question in DC”

I wonder, was the Mayor’s security detail armed?  And if so, I hope it was with nothing that can carry more than 7 bullets.  Because otherwise Bloomberg would come off as a petty tyrant and a giant douchey hypocrite.  And nobody wants that for a man who has shown consistently that he is willing to protect the good citizens of his city from salt and soda and accidents that may happen in the home when people presume it is their business to protect themselves from criminals who maddeningly refuse to comply with NY’s very stringent gun control laws.


My favorite part is that a NY police officer acting as part of Bloomberg’s security detail in DC follows Mattera. Which we know is very much like racism. And the officer’s not even a White Hispanic!

Up is down. Black is white. Crimson is clover, over and over…

  1. Oooooh! Me too! Me too! I have “security jurisdiction” in Washington DC, even though I don’t have a badge!

    Any number can play. I would have asked baldie for his badge number, and made a note of his full name and rank in NYPD.

  2. PS: don’t just accept whatever number he says, demand to SEE the badge.

  3. Mattera should have called the cops.

  4. Looks more like ‘insecurity jurisdiction’ to me.

  5. A staffer at left-wing Media Matters for America committed numerous felonies in the District of Columbia and around the country by carrying a firearm to defend the organization’s founder, David Brock, The Daily Caller has learned.

    According to a knowledgeable source, multiple firearms used to protect the Media Matters founder were purchased with Brock’s blessing — and apparently with the group’s money.


    Brock, whose struggles with mental health have seen him hospitalized in the past, became increasingly concerned by late 2010 that he was being targeted by right-wing assassins.

    The DC has learned that by that time, Brock had armed his assistant — who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm — with a Glock handgun.

    According to an internal email exchange obtained by The DC, the gun was purchased with cash in Maryland, likely to diminish the chances such a purchase would appear on the tax-exempt group’s books.

    Between Price-Morris’ early 2009 arrival and late 2010 departure from Media Matters, he also acquired a shotgun for Brock’s protection.

    Price-Morris was regularly armed when accompanying Brock on trips around the country, according to a source, and his firearm possession in Washington, D.C. constituted multiple felonies.

    On at least one occasion, Brock — accompanied by his armed aide — visited California to attend a “Democracy Alliance” summit of major Democratic donors and lawmakers.

    That gathering included such major figures in Democratic politics as billionaires George Soros, Peter Lewis and Bill Benter, former Service Employees International Union Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger, and the politician behind the federal government’s 1994 “Assault Weapons Ban,” California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

    On Thursday, Feinstein re-introduced a new version of the ban which would reinstate and greatly expand the law, which expired in 2004. Reached Thursday, a spokesman for Feinstein did not respond to a request for comment related to the senator’s attendance, alongside Brock and Price-Morris, at the Democracy Alliance meeting.

    Spokespersons for Soros and Benter did not reply to emailed requests for comment.

    The gods have rarely been this entertained.

  6. “Would you like a sip of my soda?” Classic!

  7. The whole motion of guards in unison against the one minor question -asking-fella is very funny, kinda like the reverse-image of a flock of sheep under the influence of one good border collie.

  8. Hmmm…Alex Jones said Bloomberg had some security goons following him around when he was in New York for that crazy Piers Morgan interview.

  9. Oh, look. Thugs. Just because they are Bloomberg’s thugs doesn’t change the fact of who they are.

  10. The whole motion of guards in unison against the one minor question -asking-fella is very funny, kinda like the reverse-image of a flock of sheep under the influence of one good border collie.

    I was reminded of Louis Farrakhan and his guards following him around step-for-step on stage.

  11. I was reminded more of Gaddafi’s Amazons.

  12. Yet what would the guards say should someone seriously intent on doing the Mayor harm have come along while they were so thoroughly focused on a non-entity in that respect? Hey, sorry you got shot Mayor! We were just doing our jobs!

  13. It would have been interesting to call the DC cops and ask them if that mook-in-a-suit had “security jurisdiction”.

  14. He should have asked to see the guards ID and written down the identifying information.

    And called the DC cops to report that he was being followed by an armed man.

  15. Greetings:

    In the diminutive Mayor’s defense, he hasn’t come out for goon control.

  16. “Security jurisdiction”: no such thing.
