by Jim Hoft @ Bloomberg Refuses National Guard Entry Into Brooklyn Because They Carry Guns | Conservative News, Views & Books The Gateway Mayor Michael Bloomberg turned the National Guard away from Brooklyn because they were carrying guns. NewsBusters reported, via FOX Nation: Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitzs impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn arguing that approving the Beeps request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state. We dont need it, Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the citys ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns. Markowitz demanded the National Guards help just an hour before Bloombergs press conference, claiming that the NYPD and FDNY are brave but overwhelmed by all the challenges Sandy brought when it visited the borough on Monday night: flooding, power outages, and looting.
