Tom Ridge Quits Bloomberg's New Anti-Gun Group

The DC reports:

Former Republican Gov. Tom Ridge is stepping down from his position with Michael Bloomberg’s new anti-gun organization, The Daily Caller has learned.

“When I signed on as an advisor to Everytown, I looked forward to a thoughtful and provocative discussion about the toll gun violence takes on Americans,” Ridge told The Daily Caller in a statement, through a spokesman.

“After consultation with Everytown, I have decided that I am uncomfortable with their expected electoral work,” Ridge said. “Therefore, we have decided that we will pursue this issue in our separate spheres.”

A little more detail regarding Ridge’s change of mind would be nice. You’d have have to have lived under a rock to not know what to expect from Bloomberg by now. He’s a statist who loves fear, hates big sodas and all guns, except those guns his own bodyguards are carrying. He loves those guns. He thinks his ego and his political advocacy will earn him a spot in heaven, if there even is one.
