Bloomberg: Why, This Terrorism Means That We're Gonna Have to Change the Constitution

The Little Dictator.

You will not be shocked to learn that a terror attack carried out with bombs requires that guns be restricted.

“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 world 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.”

...

“We have to understand that in the world going forward, we’re going to have more cameras and that kind of stuff. That’s good in some sense, but it’s different from what we are used to,” he said.

The mayor pointed to the gun debate and noted the courts have allowed for increasingly stringent regulations in response to ever-more powerful weapons.

“Clearly the Supreme Court has recognized that you have to have different interpretations of the Second Amendment and what it applies to and reasonable gun laws … Here we’re going to to have to live with reasonable levels of security,” he said, pointing to the use of magnetometers to catch weapons in city schools.

I don't mind the cameras in high-traffic, high-crime areas so much. Though I concede the idea of being filmed so much of one's life is pretty creepy.

Every impulse this guy has, though, is towards the aggrandizement of the state and the diminishment of the citizen.
