Brewer: Bloomberg Probe Implies NYC Spotless

Reacting to an undercover probe of a Phoenix gun show, where New York City-hired investigators bought semiautomatic pistols even after indicating they probably could not pass a background check, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Tuesday told Fox News it must mean that Mayor Michael Bloomberg has solved all of his city’s problems.

“Well, I find it interesting that he's out here in Arizona solving our problems. I guess he believes that he has solved all the problems in New York,” Brewer told Greta Van Susteren. “It has been a fascinating story, but we are a big Second Amendment state.”

Bloomberg has authorized similar sting operations around the country, as part of a push for tougher federal laws to help keep guns off the streets of New York.

“After Tucson, you would think that people, particularly at a gun show in Arizona, would have been much more careful in enforcing the law,” he said Monday. “That unfortunately … wasn’t the case.”

Brewer noted that gun sellers in Arizona have the responsibility not to sell guns to anyone they suspect cannot pass a background check. “It is a state felony and a federal felony,” she said. “So those laws need to be enforced.”

Van Susteren wryly asked Brewer whether she intended to send investigators to New York to investigate anything.

“Actually, no. I'll let him take care of his” city she said. “And I'll be taking care of Arizona.”
