BELLEVUE, WA --(Ammoland.com)- Three more names have been added to a veritable rogue’s gallery of current or former members of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns who have run afoul of the law with Thursday’s criminal charges against Marcus Hook, Pa. Mayor James Schiliro, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.

“Mayor Schiliro is one more example of why we started the ‘Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors’ campaign,” said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “He joins recently-convicted former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and recently-indicted former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, both of whom were MAIG members.”

SAF launched Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors last fall, “and the list keeps growing,” said Gottlieb.

“Schiliro’s case is not only bad, but bizarre,” Gottlieb observed. “He’s been charged with false imprisonment, unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, serving alcohol to a minor and other crimes, and he also allegedly used more than one gun in this incident, in which at least one shot was fired.

“The allegations against Schiliro creeped me out,” he said. “With associates like this, I can understand why Bloomberg doesn’t trust people with guns.

“According to published reports,” he continued, “Schiliro’s attorney says the mayor has sold his guns and entered alcoholism treatment, but this doesn’t get any traction with me. If the charges against this guy are proven in court, he deserves to have the book thrown at him, same as Mayor Bloomberg would demand if any other gun owner did what police and prosecutors think Schiliro did.

“It is amusing,” Gottlieb added, “that Schiliro – who signed an infamous letter to the U.S. Senate with 600 other mayors – has suddenly disappeared from the MAIG roster on that group’s website.

“Mayor Bloomberg should be more interested in the conduct of MAIG members than trying to pry into the personal lives of gun owners or soda drinkers,” he stated. “If anybody needs a background check, it would be a MAIG member.”

The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.

    1. “According to published reports”-“Schiliro’s attorney says the mayor has sold his guns…” Is this confirmation of a double standard? When a civilian who is not politically connected gets arrested for a firearm violation one would be hard pressed to sell the guns as they would be confiscated upon arrest. Somehow that seems to not be the case with the mayor.

    2. It seems Bloomberg is in with good company with his mayors against guns since most of them are convicted criminals and if Bloomberg didn’t have so much money he too would probably be in jail where he belongs!
