NRA Claims That Mayors Against Illegal Guns is A Front Group for Anti-Gun Extremist Mayor Bloomberg
Those are strong words from the NRA, but it appears there might be some truth to them. The NRA claims that Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) has stated and done the following (this comes from a recent effort to wake up the folks in Homestead Florida who are considering working with the MAIG group):
. . . “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) is just a front group for anti-gun extremist New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, founded and funded by him, to promote his radical anti-gun ideas throughout the nation.
Does Homestead really want to work with a national gun ban group that:
Memorialized Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlane Tsarnaev, cop killer Christopher Dorner and other cold-blooded killers as “victims of gun violence” in its “No More Names” campaign.
Uses taxpayer dollars to work against your constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights – despite founder Bloomberg’s vast personal wealth.
Has suffered blows to its credibility so severe that mayors across the country are leaving the out-of-touch billionaire’s group in droves.
Considers your Second Amendment rights an “outrage.”
Has an oddly large number of mayors charged with or convicted of everything from bribery and extortion to sexual assault (to name only a few). . . .
