Bloomberg Felon calls Terrorist a victim…

June 21, 2013

BELLEVUE, WA – Naming an alleged Boston Marathon bomber as a victim of gun violence because he was shot dead by police shows just how morally bankrupt Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun “No More Names” bus tour really is, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

At a Tuesday rally in Concord, N.H., event organizers read the names of shooting victims since the Sandy Hook attack last Dec. 14. Among the names of the dead was Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the marathon bombing suspect. When his name was read, people in the audience declared, “He’s a terrorist,” according to published reports.

“This is so far beyond insulting, I’m not sure there’s a word in the dictionary to describe it,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb. “It clearly demonstrates that Michael Bloomberg’s gun prohibition effort will exploit even the names of dead terror suspects to further his anti-gun agenda. That’s a new low that I didn’t think was possible.”

Tsarnaev was fatally shot by police a few nights after the marathon bombing. His brother was wounded and is now in police custody.

“If Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns are willing to make a martyr of a terror suspect to push their agenda,” Gottlieb observed, “it raises questions about the legitimacy of their campaign to disarm America, one legislative step at a time. Next thing you know, they’ll be calling Osama bin Laden a victim of gun violence, too.

“Bloomberg is spending millions of dollars to push his vision of America onto the backs of every other citizen,” he stated. “For some reason, he thinks his billions give him the right to dictate how much soda you can drink, what you do with your garbage and how you exercise your Second Amendment rights. Now it’s clear the gun prohibition lobby, with Bloomberg in the lead, has no conscience and no shame. And these people want to dictate morality to us?

Bloomberg Launches $350K Campaign Against Senator who Voted Against Universal Background Checks

May 28, 2013

New York Michael Bloomberg exemplifies everything that is wrong with modern politics. I don’t mean to sound bitter or to wage some kind of irrational mudslinging campaign; I mean it in the most literal sense. He is everything that is rotten about politics in America.

No longer content with disarming the law-abiding in his own crime-riddled island wasteland, Bloomberg has set his sights on a much grander and far-reaching goal: disarming the American populace…. Because it has worked so well for the good citizens of New York, D.C., Chicago, Newark and South Central L.A.

Bloomberg spends his days and nights looking to invoke his will on the people and punish those that resist. Some might call it fascism, but when it’s a lefty doing it, all is forgiven.

Bloomberg and his stormtroopers, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, have begun a pricey $350,000 ad campaign to target Arkansas Democrat Senator Mark Pryor who is up for re-election next year. His crime? He had the audacity to vote against the unconstitutional universal background check bill.

Mayor Bloomberg; Birds of a feather..?

March 25, 2013

BELLEVUE, WA – 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.

Blooberg Follies: Another one bites the dust!

January 8, 2010

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. Yes indeed, these birds are all of a feather. Read on…

“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.
