Why any self respecting US Mayor would be associated with this bunch of crooks is beyond me – AmmoLand.com

Baltimore, MD –-(AmmoLand.com)- Mayor Sheila Dixon (D) has accepted a plea deal for perjury charges stemming from accusations that she did not report gifts she received from a local developer. In a teary announcement yesterday, she resigned her post as the Mayor of Baltimore as part of the plea.

As you will recall, Dixon, a vocal member of “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” was convicted last month of pocketing gift cards intended for Baltimore’s needy families.

Dixon now joins the ranks of disgraced anti-gun politicians like former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) of Detroit. Perhaps these folks should focus on abiding by the law themselves instead of persecuting law-abiding citizens.

“Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) was founded and is funded by activist anti-gun billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a front group to lobby Congress to oppose important pro-gun reforms and support new federal gun control restrictions.

Despite its very misleading name, this national group of anti-gun mayors has lobbied Congress against national reciprocity of state Right-to-Carry permits, against much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), for regulating gun shows out of existence, and for repealing the Tiahrt Amendment that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners and limits disclosure of sensitive firearm trace data to protect law enforcement personnel and protect lawful gun manufacturers from bogus lawsuits.

Dixon will keep her $ 83,000 annual pension.

It is now 48 days and counting, until SCOTUS hears arguments in McDonald v. Chicago.

If American citizens would stop looking the other way when elected officials are caught stealing, things would change. Members of a jury who go along to get along have caused the crime wave among electeds that we are all paying for now! Catch 'em; jail 'em, and burn 'em with maximum jail sentences and fines: they have betrayed a public trust!

I understand your rage Clint. my question is simply this, When will the people remember that Our Constitution tells us that ours is a Government OF the people, FOR the People and BY THE PEOPLE! This means that elected officials are NOT OUR LEADERS, THEY ARE NOT OVER US. they do not have any authourity over us. They are OUR EMPLOYEES! They are hired by ballot to do a job. They answer to their employers. Our employees are now all career polititions. Career polititions have always been and always will be liars and thieves. Now if we lied to our… Read more »

This is where "the system" always screw up. They let these people off with such lame excuses for a punishment. I am so tired of this crap. Burn 'em alive! Make examples out of all of them. If it were you or I that commited the simplest of misdemeanors, we would loose every bit of Freedom we ever owned. This has got to be turned around, in the most desperate way. If anyone, I mean ANYONE that holds a public office commits the smallest infraction against society, they should be strung up by their heels and left out in the… Read more »
