WATCH: NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio Refuses to Acknowledge Citizens Have 2A Rights

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is hoping to become the next president of the United States.  

The far-left Democratic candidate appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” show Wednesday to talk about his vision for America.  Included in the discussion was de Blasio’s view of the Second Amendment.

What’s fascinating in watching the video is not that de Blasio is pro-gun control because that’s obvious, all the Dems running for president are in favor of ratcheting up restrictions on the 2A, but that the two-term mayor couldn’t even acknowledge that one has a fundamental right to keep and bear arms. 

“Everyone deserves to be safe,” explained de Blasio to host Sean Hannity. “The answer is not for everyone to have a firearm — any more than the answer is not for every teacher to have a firearm.”

“I believe we should have background checks,” he continued. “We need an assault weapons ban.”

Hannity persisted with the question of an individual’s right to own firearms and pointed out that de Blasio was dodging the question.

De Blasio replied, “All the guns that are out there, that are threatening our officers and our civilians alike… I believe people have rights, I believe in gun safety laws.”

“We have a police department… that is making it safer all the time — that’s the best way to protect people,” added the mayor. 

In short, the best way for you to protect and defend your family when confronted with a violent attacker is to… wait until police arrive.  Because the alternative — the notion that you as a responsible gun owner would use force, including lethal force, in the intervening moments to prevent your wife (or husband) and children from being brutally raped and murdered — is unconscionable.  

What de Blasio is essentially saying is that your “right to safety” stops at your ability to defend yourself.  At the point, you’re better off becoming a helpless victim than an armed responder.  Crazy!

On a positive note, though, de Blasio is polling at less than 1 percent, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.

    Blasio is a communist that does not believe in the US Constitution.

  • Sepp W August 10, 2019, 6:54 pm

    All Liberals believe the only rights Americans have are in the BoR, thus can be repealed, abridged, infringed, etc, etc. They have never read the Constitution, and WRT to firearms have no clue what Title 18 or 26 says. The spout off about nonsense with no fact or proof to substantiate their outlandish claims. Liberals are liars.

    To hear a liberal go on and on about “gun control” and gun violence”, you’d think mass shootings are occurring somewhere on the US, multiple times a day 24/7/365!

    The vast majority of Americans don’t wake up in the morning and decide to gun down innocent people for no reason at all.

    What law, of any kind, has ever prevented a crime, Mr. mayor?

  • Russ August 10, 2019, 8:42 am

    His name is Dumblasio and he has earned that name for sure.

  • Russ August 10, 2019, 8:40 am

    His name is Dumblasio and he has earned that nickname over the years. With these comments he just reinforces it.

    Most may have missed it. Hannity made several positive remarks about LE and directed his agtention and gave head nods to officers present. Those Officers just off camera but on Stage are a portion of deblaiso’s security protection detail. They cover his ass 24/7 while the pesants in NYC have to wait on a 911 operator, get an assigned priority and when they rise to the top, cops are dispatched as the wait for help continues. But deblaiso obstructs your 2A Rights and wants to eliminate them.

    I should mention that it is unlikley deblasio sent Officers from his security detail to move his daughter from an appartment to another residence. Probable got those “In Uniform Officers” from the local Precinct, high priority work!

    Less we forget, the 2nd amendment was written so the citizens of the country would not be oppressed by external or internal forces.

  • Justista August 9, 2019, 7:01 pm

    Let me translate for the mayor. What he is meaning but not saying is, once we disarm Americans it will be easier to get a dick in them.

  • Stuart August 9, 2019, 4:36 pm

    If De Blasio truly believes everyone has the “right to safety,” which of course they do, regardless of what he may think. They also have the right to safeguard themselves, their family, friends, etc., by whichever means they deem most appropriate.

  • Michael J August 9, 2019, 2:16 pm

    It is overwhelmingly obvious that politicians have no intention of allowing common citizens to protect themselves. They are as blatant as the lies they use to get elected and then perpetrate their will at will to decide what’s best for you. Of course they have an armed detail to protect themselves from who?

  • ditpook August 9, 2019, 1:04 pm

    Hahaha! That’s a good one! Someone call the travelling circus because they are missing a clown!!!

  • Fergus August 9, 2019, 12:50 pm

    Let DeCommio give up his security detail and call 911 like the rest of NYC. Then lets see what he thinks about the 2nd amendment. What a putz.

  • Mike August 9, 2019, 12:25 pm

    And this guy wants to be president? Maybe he hasn’t heard of the Constitution ?

    I wonder if it’s ok for him to carry, as he must be important. When he’s in a public venue speaking etc..do his support / security people, I/e Police, State Police, etc. leave their firearms at home?

    Another do as I say, not as I do….

    His mentality seems to be a growing cancerous mind set of our nation, especially the libtards and democraps.

  • Brian August 9, 2019, 11:44 am

    Does this asshat de Blasio intend to provide an officer 24/7 to be with and protect citizens the same way politicians are? I think not. The police are not here to protect you, they only show up after you have been the victim of a violent crime. And any other non-violent crime? Forget it, just file a report on your laptop with the police and maybe they MIGHT take a look at it. My father was robbed at gun point, went to the police station to report the crime and was told by the desk sergeant to fill out a report of what was taken but not to expect to get anything back let alone see the criminal caught, charged and convicted.

    President Trump and many Republicans are doing a “fine job” of mimicking DeBlasio in the refusal to recognize rights department.

    Don’t count on them to save you.

    • Boz August 9, 2019, 11:51 am

      We, The People, don’t count on anyone to save us, but ourselves.

  • Jerry August 9, 2019, 8:05 am

    According to comrade de Blasio I shouldn’t have any rights under the second amendment but an illegal alien has the right to come here without consequences, get a job-usually with a fraudulent social security number-free health care & education & should & should be free from prosecution–including the use of an illegal firearm (to purchase a firearm legally federal law states you must be a legal resident).
    Idea for president Trump: legislation requiring existing firearms laws be followed before passing duplicate laws& strengthen background checks only by requiring more information from agencies reporting to NICS. universal background checks & restrictions on magazine capacity are meaningless for one simple reason. Someone intent on committing murder or other crime with a firearm is not going to be deterred ny another law.

    Anti-American liberals bash and step on the constitution on a daily basis
