Glenn and Helen interview Bill Haslam
They ask him about his membership in Mayors Against Guns. He says it was probably a mistake to have joined. And that when it started, Bloomberg wasn’t in charge. He does not favor any more gun controls. He even bought his son a shotgun for Christmas.
Now, I’m pretty sure this has been a Bloomberg operation from the beginning. Haslam makes it sound as though there was a petition passed around at a mayoral meeting and a bunch of people signed it, including him. And since then, the focus of the group has changed. After all, what politician isn’t against illegal guns? Little did they know, they meant illegal guns in NYC, which is most of them.
I think Haslam laid out his case pretty well. He thought he signed up for one thing and it turned into another and he’s not real happy about it. He once again distances himself from Bloomberg. I still think he should withdraw from the group since his opponents have already distorted his record based on membership in the group and will likely continue to do so.
And they might mention someone you know. And that that someone was defending Haslam, for once.
