At least we'll soon find out who truly has their political ear to the pulsating voice of the people.

Bloomberg and Wayne La Pierre face off on television this morning. Yes, people watched. Bloomberg said he knows best what the American people want, and that he is going to spend a fortune making the American people agree with him. Millions of dollars in anti-gun ads..

LaPierre slammed Bloomberg for the ad buy: "He's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. And he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the American public," LaPierre said, adding, "He can't buy America."

The warring factions have squared off into their corners. The debates continue in earnest tomorrow between Bloomberg and Wayne La Pierre. The Bloomberg paid for anti-gun ads hit the airwaves. Bloomberg has the money to represent the socialists of New York...and ostensibly Colorado and the rest of America.

Wayne La Pierre ostensibly represents the Constitutionalists who live in between New York and Colorado...and, I suppose, California.

Who really represents the majority will of the American people? If this question was put to a vote, could we trust the electronic voting machines? How many polls will come out over the next two weeks? Which side will win on the assault rifle case.....Yes, Bloomberg is ignoring Harry Reid by demanding a vote on an assault rifle ban.....and the Universal Background Check?

These next two weeks could prove to be more interesting than the two weeks running up to the 2012 presidential election. 91 million people didn't vote in the presidential election. Not that anyone is voting who will win between Bloomberg and Wayne La Pierre. But a lot of people in congress will be wondering about their jobs in the 2014 midterm elections.

I'm wondering the odds that Las Vegas will establish?

In about two weeks or so, we all should know how the majority of Americans feel. There's more at stake to this than the Second Amendment. The Obamacare debates are coming up after the Bloomberg-Wayne La Pierre debates are finalized.

Stay tuned for further developments.

Both sides of gun debate make public appeals

New York's Bloomberg, NRA chief spar on gun control, say it's up to public now to press Senate

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two of the loudest voices in the gun debate say it's up to voters now to make their position known to Congress.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and National Rifle Associate Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre claim their opposing views on guns have the support of the overwhelming number of Americans. They are looking at the next two weeks as critical to the debate, when lawmakers head home to hear from constituents ahead of next month's anticipated Senate vote on gun control.

There's an old saying: strike while the iron is hot. Bloomberg has waited too long. The NRA has already won.

Even still, if I were the NRA, I'd simply run a counter-ad listing everything that Bloomberg has tried to ban in NYC. It wouldn't exactly be difficult to paint the man as an extremist control freak, especially in the areas where they want to run these ads.

Control freak no doubt. I cannot fathom why people would want someone like that in office and keep reelecting them time and again. NYC is not a representation of the entire state of NY thats for sure. I can't wait until this idiot is out of office. One thing in life I cannot personally stand is control freaks, leave me and mine the hell alone. I am a grown man and don't need a babysitter, well most of the time
. But hey thats what the wifey is for right!!!

To paraphrase: What does the majority of Americans think about the Second Amendment?

How much of the beliefs of American citizens be purchased and manipulated by a billionaire mayor?
