Bloomberg Fooled Mets, Just Like He Fooled Mayors

posted on June 6, 2015

On Tuesday, the New York Mets posed in orange shirts as part of Michael Bloomberg’s Gun Violence Awareness Day. Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety declared the “national” day (apparently anyone can do so now) and enlisted figures such as deposed CNN gun-hating host Piers Morgan and Chicago’s anti-gun mayor Rahm Emanuel to wear orange for this latest mutation of their national gun-banning crusade.

However, they apparently hid their true intentions from the team: On Wednesday, Mets pitcher Dillon Gee tweeted, “This is not why I put on that shirt this day. I in no way support Bloomberg/Morgan or gun control.”

Gee can be forgiven for being duped: He joins a slew of American mayors who left Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns after discovering that his real purpose was to ban all guns, not just the illegal ones.
