Would Hillary Name Bloomie Secretary Of State?

Have any doubts billionaire gun-ban advocate Michael Bloomberg will have a big role in a Hillary Clinton administration? You can probably put those doubts out of your head now.

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, a leaked email from the Hillary Clinton campaign indicates Bloomie might even be our next secretary of state! When asked by the Clinton camp if there was something Bloomberg might want to do in a Clinton administration, Bloomberg senior adviser Howard Wolfson said, “Secty of state Which ain't gonna happen.”

However, subsequent emails show that longtime Clinton confidante Neera Tanden took the statement seriously enough to forward the email to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta. “Something to know for down the road,” she told him.

Any spot for Bloomberg in a Clinton administration is one more reason for America’s law-abiding gun owners to work hard from now until Election Day to make sure we don’t go “down that road.”


Ohio Store Manager Stops Robbery

In yet another case of defensive gun use during which no shots were ever fired, an Ohio grocery store manager used his legally owned firearm to stop the robbery of his establishment. 

According to local media reports, a man wearing sunglasses, a hooded sweatshirt and gloves waited until the store was empty, then approached the store manager, who was operating the cash register. “Once everybody leaves, this guy comes up to the counter,” the manager told local police. “He passes the note. It’s in really bad handwriting, so I can’t make it out. I ask him, ‘What does it say?’ and he says, “Give me whatever you got to get the register before anybody gets hurt.’”

That’s when the manager, who is licensed to carry a firearm, grabbed his own gun from behind the counter and held the robber until police could arrive.
