Mayor Bloomberg Afraid of 200-Year-Old Rifle

    New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has repeatedly proven that he hates the U.S. Constitution and that he feels that he a right to harass any citizen he pleases — even ones that have broken no laws. But now he has also shown his lack of manhood because it has been revealed that Bloomberg is afraid of a 200-year-old style of rifle called a flintlock, the style that helped the founders defeat Mad King George in the Revolutionary War. The ancient shooter has Bloomie hiding under his sheets at night.

    Mad King Bloomie has initiated a harassment campaign against Michael Littlejohn, a city inhabitant that commissioned a handmade replica of a flintlock musket, the kind just like those the Continental Army used in the 1770s. Littlejohn apparently scared Bloomie when he brought the ancient model firearm to his Brooklyn Apartment. The quaking Bloomie has apparently directed that NYC police attempt to strong arm the history enthusiast to apply for a gun license even though the law says that flintlocks do not need to be registered or a license obtained to own one.

    I can happily report that Littlejohn is refusing to bow to the un-Constitutional pressure of thug Bloomberg and his jackbooted coppers.

    So what about this rifle, anyway? Is it prone to attacking passers-by all by itself? Is it the favored gun of drive by shooters and gang bangers? How dangerous is the thing, anyway?

    Let me describe how this weapon is loaded and fired and you be the judge of how dangerous the ancient piece is:

    First, one must have a container of loose gun powder, a little lead ball about the size of the end of your thumb, and a long stick called a ramrod. Your musket must also have a piece of rock called a flint attached to the hammer.

    You take the loose powder and dump it down the front of the barrel. This thing loads from the front and is called a muzzle loader. Then you put a little piece of paper of cloth down the barrel, then the little round ball of lead.

    Next you take the ramrod which is as long as the gun barrel and shove everything to the bottom of the barrel. Tamp it down nice and tight.

    OK, next you cock the hammer and put a little more loose powder in the little pan at the base of the breech. All set.

    Now you are ready to fire. Pulling the trigger will release the hammer. Remember your hammer has that piece of rock called a flint in it? Well, that flint strikes the metal and causes a spark. The loose powder in the little pan will ignite and the fire will travel down a little hole in the back of the barrel. That fire will ignite the powder that you put inside the barrel with the ramrod.

    BOOM, the gun fires.

    And now… it’s empty and has to be reloaded. That’s right after taking the minute or two to load and fire it the thing is empty then empty. And then you have to go through the process all over again.

    This is what Mad King Bloomie is afraid of?

    Idiot.

    Here is a nice video to show those of you that need a visual.

    See. It’s no WONDER the gang bangers are lining up to get one of these babies!

    (By the way, this guy on the video is not loading his musket in a proper, military manner, but what he is doing there is what has to be done to load the thing.)

    I don't know?

    Those guys who used those things day out and day in could re-load them pretty fast. Besides that, they where extremelly accurate.

    I think that a seasoned shooter could eventually hit a barn door in under 70 seconds, that is if the barn was very close.

    Maybe Bloomberg is remembering that those flintlocks chased Washington and the Continental Army out of New York at the beginning of the First Revolutionary War, and he doesn't want to spend the winter at Valley Forge.:D

    On a sunny day with the wind coming from behind them and shooting down a hill towards the barn and with 50 of their buddies shooting also, so when one of them actually hits the barn, one of them can say "I hit where I was aiming!"

    Well, enough of those "stupid farmers with squirrel guns" shot and hit enough more Brits than Brits and Hussars did them... it all ended up with Cornwall surrendering at Yorktown, the Yankee's marching band playing Yankee Doodle to the Pommies after they (Pommies) insulted the Yanks by turning their backs on them. So, those muskets musst have been good for something, some of the time, in the hands of some of the militiamen (private citizens, volunteering for a season)

    Hey, you sure Bloomie is AFRAID, or maybe just on such a power trip he can't brook ANYONE who's not totally under his control?

    well, he's ONLY the terror, er, I mean the mayor, because enough of his citizens are sufficiently stupid/blind/duped/bought to continnue to elect him. UNLESS, of course, he's somehow got a sufficient number of faithful dead people signed up (new meaning to the term "faithful departed"), and manages to arrange for others to cast multiple ballots. Not accusing, mind you, but it MUST be one or the other.

    Maybe he's afraid of a "rabble in arms"...

    Just one more reason I'm glad that providence didn't have me living in New York.

    Fingolfen reminds me of that wizard of ID cartoon:

    Town crier: "The peasants are revolting!"

    The king in his chambers: "You can say that again."

    King Bloomie needs to go!
