Bloomberg's Bodyguards Bully Blogger

... after he asks them to disarm, in the name of gun control, to save just one child's life...

I'm somewhat sympathetic to the security detail here.  The reporter is clearly not friendly to Bloomberg and they are reacting to that.  They don't actually lay hands on him.  Following him and getting identification information based on a lie about jurisdiction is legally questionable, but wanting that information (based on a clearly hostile if peaceful encounter) is not unreasonable for a protective detail.

But all of that just makes the irony more delicious.  Bloomberg demands gun control for the people while surrounded by armed thugs who interrogate anyone who embarrasses him by asking uncomfortable questions.  What are people who can't afford a 5 person security team supposed to do to protect themselves?
