‘Mayors for Gun Control’

Mayors Against Illegal Guns
‘Mayors for Gun Control’

Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)- We often report on anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the follies of his gun control advocacy group “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.” 

In the past–at one of their particularly low points–we were even compelled to detail a long list of criminal acts attributed to MAIG members.

These days, some members of the group are disenchanted and are quitting MAIG.

The New York Post reported this week that one former member–Rockford, Illinois Mayor Lawrence Morrissey–has said, “The original focus, I thought, was going to be . . . on better enforcement of our existing laws, and if anything, we have talked about not getting involved with things like banning assault weapons and banning magazine clips.”   Morrissey also explained, “The reason why I joined the group in the first place is because I took the name for what it said–against ‘illegal’ guns.”

The Post article also provides a long list of examples of how MAIG’s tactics have “ruffled feathers across the political spectrum,” including a quote from Nashua, N.H. Mayor Donnalee Lozeau who, the article claims, quit Bloomberg’s gun control team after it launched TV attacks against  New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R):  “I said, ‘Wait a minute. I don’t want to be part of something like that,’ ” Lozeau told The Manchester (NH) Union Leader.  “I told them, ‘You’re Mayors Against Illegal Guns; you’re not mayors for gun control.’ ”

This is really great news! Maybe there is hope yet, that real common sense exists. Hopefully more of the members will come to realize that the whole group was formed for the purpose of a great lie.


The picture says it all. Perfect!

Given Bloomberg’s track record, the mayors that quit are either fools or liars. Everyone knew what this organization was really about the day it was formed. Given the political backlash against the Illegal Mayors Against Guns, I’m surprised more aren’t jumping ship, screaming out the lie “mea culpa, I didn’t know!”
