Covington VA –-( I have been doing a bit of research on Bloomberg’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

They claim a membership of 593 mayors. Of these, 399 (over 67%!) are in only four states – New Jersey (40), New York (108), Ohio (71) and Pennsylvania(180). If you throw in California (21) and Florida (36), they account for 456 (over 76%) of their alleged membership.

There are approximately 8,291 mayors, nationally, of localities with over 30,000 citizens. Even disregarding the fact that a fair number of Bloomberg’s group are not even included in that count, due to small constituencies, this means that fewer than 7.2% of the nation’s mayors agree with his goals and methods enough to allow themselves to be counted among his supporters.

The vast majority of states, 37, or 74% (see table below) could produce only 5 or fewer members, from the many hundreds of mayors in each state. In fact, they could not persuade a SINGLE mayor in 12 states to join in their conspiracy to subvert the Constitution (see table below).

I am saddened to see that they were able to dupe 9 of our own Virginia mayors. [PVC: Virginia does have some less-than-stellar Mayors. The members of Bloomberg’s coalition should be on every gun owner’s list to get unelected.]

Alabama – 3, Alaska – 1, Arizona – 0, Arkansas – 2, Colorado – 1, Georgia- 5, Hawaii – 1, Idaho – 0, Indiana – 5, Iowa – 2, Kansas – 3, Kentucky – 0, Louisiana – 4, Maine – 4, Maryland – 4, Michigan – 3, Minnesota – 3, Mississippi – 3, Missouri – 3, Montana – 0, Nebraska – 3, New Hampshire – 0, New Mexico – 2, Nevada – 0, North Dakota – 1, Oklahoma – 0, Oregon – 2, Rhode Island – 0, South Carolina – 2, South Dakota – 0, Tennessee – 3, Texas – 2, Utah – 0, Vermont – 2, West Virginia – 0, Wisconsin – 5, Wyoming – 0

I was just made aware of this unauthorized, incomplete and modified reprint of my work. Please either remove my name and content or correct your web page to clearly indicate that the two images and captions under my byline are not in any way a part of my article, and that the table at the end is edited from the one I published; it is obviously incomplete.
