West Virginia Pol To Bloomberg: Don't Try To Stop Our Illegal Gun Sales

West Virginia state Sen. Jeffrey Kessler doesn't like it that NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg sends private investigators to his state to trace the origin of the illegal handguns that flood into New York. So Kessler wants to make it illegal for outside law enforcement to bust illegal gun sales in West Virginia. SRSLY.
"It's for us to handle within our own borders," said state Sen. Jeffrey Kessler, who is running for governor in 2012. "We jealously guard our gun rights, and we're vocal advocates for the Second Amendment. He calls his proposal the "Bloomberg bill" - a reflection of how Bloomberg's anti-gun crusade has made him public enemy No. 1 to gun lovers. The mayor has spent millions hiring private investigators to videotape gun dealers seemingly violating federal law - selling weapons to people who say they couldn't pass a background check, or who appear to be straw purchasers on behalf of others. "It may be good for getting headlines, but it may well be compromising actual law enforcement activities," Kessler said. "He's not a federal law enforcement officer."
Bloomberg says that 90% of the guns used in NYC crimes come from out of state. How much is the NRA kicking in to Kessler's gubernatorial run in order to keep those Glocks flowing?
