Blooberg Follies: Another one bites the dust!

Birds of a feather flock together a the saying goes. The Felon Mayor of New York City. Yes, that’s right, he is a felon irrespective of the shill judge that said otherwise. Think about it, if you or I set out to have a load of straw purchases of firearms we would be cellmates in some prison. So, the felon sets up a very dishonest organization, and goes to work with the goal of taking away your civil rights, and a whole slew of people jump on board his coat tails. Quite a a few figured out what he was up to, and quit. Others heard their constituents and left because they wanted to keep their jobs. Yet others, stayed in the flock.

“Mayors Against Illegal Guns” Loses Yet Another Member!

Thursday, January 07, 2010
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.
