AZ – GUN POLITICS – Mike Bloomberg Blasts Bernie Sanders Over Gun Voting Record, Says ‘NRA Put Him In Congress’ (VIDEO)

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg hit back at Senator Bernie Sanders Thursday, claiming on Twitter that his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination was elected to Congress due to support from the National Rifle Association. Sanders is currently running on a platform that includes strict gun control measures and often publicly touts his low ratings from the NRA. However, critics have pointed out that his stance on the matter has changed over time. Bloomberg launched a series of tweets containing what he called “inconvenient facts” about the issue. “The NRA put Bernie Sanders in Congress, And Other Inconvenient Facts,” said Bloomberg in the first of the tweets. “NRA President Wayne LaPierre told Vermonters to vote for Bernie. When Sanders ran in 1990, the NRA ran ads against his opponent,” Bloomberg continued.

His Republican opponent at the time was not favored due to his support of an assault weapons ban. Bloomberg continued his tweets by focusing on votes against gun control by Sanders during his early years representing Vermont in the House.  [full article]
