NYC Mayor Bloomberg Conducts Gun Sting in Neighboring… Arizona

In the past, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has criticized Arizona’s immigration law from afar, but when it comes to gun law enforcement in that state, he seems to be operating a bit out of his mayoral jurisdiction, don’t you think?

NEW YORK – Weeks after the shooting in Tucson, sellers at an Arizona gun show allowed undercover investigators hired by New York City to buy semiautomatic pistols even after they said they probably couldn’t pass a background check, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday.

“After Tucson, you would think that people, particularly at a gun show in Arizona, would have been much more careful in enforcing the law,” he said. “That unfortunately in some cases wasn’t the case.”

Bloomberg has authorized similar sting operations around the country as part of a push for tougher federal laws to help keep guns off the streets of New York.

In fairness to the newly self-appointed ruler of the Grand Canyon State, he panicked a little because he misunderstood and thought his people told him they were selling “salt weapons” in Arizona.

Lately we’ve heard a lot about “using a tragedy to forward a personal political agenda,” and this is yet another example:

The mayor conceded that most illegal guns in New York City are coming from states along the East Coast, but said the rampage in Tucson would bring national attention to the investigation.

What a Dupnik!

In the meantime, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was unamused:
