Stop Their Socialist Disarmament.

On tonight's Liberty Update, Vice-President of Legal and Public affairs at the Center for Individual Freedom Tim Lee joins Cam Edwards in the studio to talk about the strange environment of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's New York. Homeless shelters are forced to throw away donated food that violates the city's trans fat ban, forcing the needy to go hungry while obesity remains high. Meanwhile, Bloomberg dropped $102 million in his latest re-election campaign, the most a political candidate has ever spent of their own money. Lee explains that campaign finance restrictions do nothing to stop rich individuals like Bloomberg, but they greatly dampen the efforts of grassroots organizations like the NRA to oppose him.
