Former New York City Mayor and billionaire leftist Michael Bloomberg, who has spent tens of millions of dollars to attack the Second Amendment, is helping gun-grabbing activists push for more gun control in the wake of last month's shooting in Parkland, Florida — and with the renewed attention on Bloomberg comes a resurfaced video that shows he knows nothing about firearms.

In a December 2012 interview with "Nightline" host Cynthia McFadden, Bloomberg made multiple absurd remarks about firearms showing that he knows next to nothing about the very thing he is trying to ban.

In one particular exchange, Bloomberg responded to McFadden's assertion that he wanted to ban handguns by saying, "No, but pistols are different. You have to pull the trigger each time. An assault weapon, you basically hold it and it goes, bllaalaalap."

McFadden replied, "No, those are fully automatic weapons," to which Bloomberg said, "Okay."

Bloomberg went on to dismiss the thoughts of people who hunt using rifles, saying, "If that's what they're using, for God's sakes, why don't they use dynamite?"
