WATCH: Bloomberg Asked How He Justifies Gun Control When He Has Armed Security for Himself

During his town hall on Fox News last night, a audience member asked Michael Bloomberg how he justifies gun control when he has armed security for himself.

His answer was basically that since he was a politician and “very wealthy” he had more threats.

Audience Member:

How do you justify pushing for more gun control when you have an armed security detail that’s likely equipped with the same firearms and magazines that you seek to ban the common citizen from owning?

Does your life matter more than mine or my family’s or these peoples?

Mike Bloomberg:

Look, I probably get 40 or 50 threats every week, ok, and some of them are real. That just happens when you are the mayor of New York City or you are very wealthy, and if you are campaigning for president of the United States you get lots of threats.


In 2013, Bloomberg was captured on video with his armed security on video and called out as a hypocrite.
