Seriously, who put this guy in charge of Arizona laws? In case he hasn't noticed, New York City is buried under mountains of snow and garbage. And he's got the resources to pull stings at Arizona gun shows?
The operation was conducted as part of the Bloomberg administration’s effort to crack down on illegal gun sales nationwide.Maybe Sheriff Joe Arpaio or Governor Jan Brewer can send some undercover police in to New York City and investigate why it took a week to dig out the outer boroughs after the December 26 blizzard. Or maybe infiltrate restaurants and find out some folks are sneaking too much salt with their lunch.
Bloomberg said the operation cost $100,000 and came out of the NYPD's budget.
The governor defends the laws in her state.
"We believe our laws are fair and just in the state of Arizona,'' the governor said Monday.Imagine that. You mean she doesn't report to King Bloomberg?
Her comments come on the heels of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg releasing videos Monday taken by undercover agents at a Phoenix gun show just 15 days after the Tucson shootings. There, Arizona private investigators hired by New York City were able to purchase weapons not only without a background check but, at least twice, after admitting to sellers they probably would not pass.
Brewer said she had not seen the videos. Nor had she seen Bloomberg's comments.
But the governor said the laws are "something that the Legislature and I decide.''
