So, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg believes that the public's interpretation of the Constitution must evolve in the face of terror attacks such as the one in Boston. "You're going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days," the man explained, "and our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change."
Bloomberg don't get to make that decision. We do. For now, at least.
Bloomberg's recent efforts to raise his national profile on issues such as gun control suggest that he plans to run for higher office soon. I won't be surprised if he seeks the Democratic nomination for President in 2016. If so, quotes like this, along with nanny-state behavior like regulating soda cup sizes and banning salt from restaurant food, will hopefully destroy any chance he has of receiving the nomination.
If it doesn't, we're really in trouble.
