Arrogant gun-grabber Bloomberg says he’s earned his place in Heaven; $50 million more can’t hurt

Buried at the bottom of a New York Times story trumpeting former Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s plans to drop $50 million on a new gun-grabbing crusade is a quote that’s a jaw dropper even for a man known for his arrogance.


“I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in,” Bloomberg told The Times. “I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

Gotta love that part about not even stopping for an interview. The billioniare’s practically got his corner office picked out already.

But blowing another $50 million on another liberal cause — gun control, the  war on coal, maritime eco-activism, etc. — surely won’t hurt. It’s not like he’s going to miss it.

“I put $50 million this year, last year into coal, $53 million into oceans,” he said. “Certainly a number like that, $50 million. Let’s see what happens.”

But afterlife or no afterlife, gun rights groups aren’t exactly scared to death by Bloomberg’s latest push.

“Frankly, I think he’s going to find out why his side keeps losing,” Gun Owners of America Executive Director Larry Pratt told The Times. “He’s got the money to waste, so I guess he’s free to do so.”

And he can’t take it with him.
