Bloomberg Looking to Go Toe to Toe With NRA

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg apparently is not busy enough running one of the nation's largest cities. Now he wants to raise money to go toe to toe with the NRA to get his anti-rights message to the masses. Or so he said on Meet the Press this past Sunday:

If you want to beat the NRA you have to go out and get your message out, and it costs money to do that.

Bloomberg claims he just wants to let Congress know that federal law prevents criminals from owning guns. I think even my eight year-old knows criminals aren't allowed to own guns so maybe Bloomberg's fundraising efforts would be better spent keeping violent criminals behind bars rather than releasing them as this USA Today story from July says The Sentencing Project wants.
