Mr. Bloomberg also disclosed yesterday that he is a member of the National Rifle Association. A membership card with his name on it arrived about four weeks ago. He said he doesn't know who signed him up for it.Doesn't seem to have worked for Romney, but what the hell--it's worth a shot (no pun intended).
Mr. Arulanandam of the NRA said he suspected he knew who was behind the membership.
"It was likely his campaign manager, upon realizing that the graveyard of presidential hopefuls is filled with people who supported gun control," he said.
If Josh Sugarmann can be licensed as a gun dealer, and if the NRA can actively participate in the expansion of the NICS program, I guess Bloomberg's NRA card isn't all that surprising.
