Just saw this on FTN -- this was stone cold sober in its seriousness.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, just told Bob Schieffer on CBS's Face the Nation this:
[...]Bloomberg: NRA focused on creating fear on Hill
“We need to make the Congress understand that the vast preponderance of the public does not want criminals, minors or people with psychiatric problems to be able to buy guns,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “And we've gotta make Congress understand that and vote that way.”
“What the NRA has focused on is making Congress afraid of them, in spite of the public wanting rational background checks for gun shows and internet sales,” he said Sunday.
“There already are nationwide gun -- requirements for background checks on guns sold through stores. But for internet sales and gun show sales, we've gotta make sure that the congressman understand the vast bulk of Americans want them to vote for sensible gun regulation.
“Not control, not banning, just regulation. And this is true of gun owners as well as non gun owners. Eighty percent of all gun owners think we should do this,” he said.

Michael Bloomberg has also pledged to put up $50 Million of his own money, in this effort to make Congress as afraid of the vast majority of the American people, as they are of the Gun Lobby interest group of the NRA.
Should be interesting to find out, who our Reps in Congress 'really represent' ... as they once again "promise" to do the "People's Business" ... nod, nod, wink, wink.
