Thanks for letting us benighted knuckledraggers know the opinion of an enlightened elite like yourself, Mayor Doomberg. No thanks; I think we’ll keep the Constitution -in particular the 2nd Amendment- just like it is. Ben Franklin said it best: They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will “have to change” to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks.
“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”
Mr. Bloomberg, who has come under fire for the N.Y.P.D.’s monitoring of Muslim communities and other aggressive tactics, said the rest of the country needs to learn from the attacks.
“Look, we live in a very dangerous world. We know there are people who want to take away our freedoms. New Yorkers probably know that as much if not more than anybody else after the terrible tragedy of 9/11,” he said.
You’ll notice later in the article that Doomberg says we can’t let recent events cause us to “categorize anybody from one religion as terrorist.” Maybe that’s true, but we sure can look at anecdotal evidences since the first WTC bombing in 1993 and see with certainty the religion where most of the terrorists are coming from.
