    Bloomberg Calls Fraternal Order Of Police A "Fringe Organization"

    Anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R) is at it again. A recent New York Post article detailed how, at a breakfast sponsored by Ladies Home Journal, he took a swipe at the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) for its support of the Tiahrt Amendment, which prohibits the disclosure of confidential firearm trace data except in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation. "It is one fringe organization," charged Bloomberg.

    Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the "lobbying" arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    I would say resident within the Fraternal Order of Police is far more expertise with the administration of justice than Mayor Bloomberg’s limited experience in that area," shot back James Pasco, the group’s executive director.

    In a recent "Memo to Executive Board, Board of National Trustees, State Lodge Presidents, Secretaries and Officers on Tiahrt Amendment," FOP National President Chuck Canterbury said, "The Fraternal Order of Police has been on the receiving end of numerous politically-oriented attacks by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his 'law enforcement spokesperson' John Feinblatt because of the FOP's support of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) on the issue of disclosure of firearms trace data. Further," Canterbury wrote, "it is important to note that at no time prior to the attacks made on the FOP did Mayor Bloomberg or any member of his administration reach out to the FOP to hear our perspective. Given the Mayor's comments and his general attitude, we can only assume this is because the FOP is a labor organization."

    Just last week, we reported on the one-sided hearing that took place in the House Oversight & Government Reform Subcommittee on Domestic Policy, which was used by anti-gunners as a platform for pushing anti-gun restrictions. In that hearing, Feinblatt, "Criminal Justice Coordinator" for Bloomberg, seized the occasion to blast the Tiahrt Amendment - the critically important provision in the Justice Department appropriations bills that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners, the safety of law enforcement officers, and the integrity of criminal investigations by preventing inappropriate release of federal firearms trace data.

    Both the FOP and the ATF have recently written in support of the law.

      Grand old Party?

      What's become of the GOP? It's selling out it's base more and more every day. I was disgusted with the democrats, but to see my own party failing to support it's base is unfathomable.

        As for the GOP, just remember that many of them are what we in Virginia refer to as RINOs -- Republicans In Name Only. A lot of Northern Republicans (liberals) fall into this category....particularly those who seek to raise our taxes and take our guns.

        Believe it or not, there are still some (albeit a select few) 'good' Democrats out there who still believe in the Second Amendment and know that we are way overtaxed as it is. {Of course, hardly any of them are in party leadership positions.}

        Still, the reality remains that both parties have sold us middle class folks "down the river" during the past several years. The Democrats cater to the illegal immigrant coalitions with the hope of gaining future Hispanic votes; while plenty of GOP candidates cater to big business interests by favoring open borders and "amnesty" programs that ensure a never-ending supply of cheap labor.

        I try to be optimistic most of the time, but it has become increasingly difficult to do so lately.

        The comments above reflect my personal opinion as a private citizen, ordinary motorist and all-around good guy.

              Scumbag. Of course, my 'great' state of Maryland's leftwing idiot gubbner, Marty Omouthy, just took away the budding take home car program of the MTA police here.

              While at the same time, signing a law banning smoking in bars etc, and trans-fats. The 'attorney general' of Md also made "Enviormental Crimes" his TOP priority.

              Welcome to the great socialist nanny state of Maryland.

              They are both worthless.

                Take a look at Mike Huckabe. He’s a Arkansan, but nothing like Clinton. He’s Pro Gun

                  We need to be VERY Wary of Bloomie..he's already said (through backchannels) that he's willing to spend 1 BILLION of his own money to run as an indie for 2008's presidential race. He pays Lip service to NYPD because he HAS to but he's no fan of cops, and he'd take ALL of our guns in a heartbeat. If ge makes it to the Oval Office you can kiss the 2nd Ammendment goodbye. I for one would have to think long and hard about resigning if given the order to violate the constitution. Remember one thing about Bloomberg.. vn though the as a "R" by his name now, it was a "D" all his life, until he ran for mayor of NYC.
