If So, Urge Your Mayor To Resign From The Bloomberg Coalition Today

Current members of "Mayors Against Illegal Guns"

Some local mayors have joined "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" (MAIG) which was founded and is funded by activist anti-gun billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Is your mayor one of them?

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.

Bloomberg created "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" as a front group to lobby Congress to oppose important pro-gun reforms and support new federal gun control restrictions. And some mayors have joined or been duped into joining this anti-gun Bloomberg crusade. If your mayor has joined MAIG, it is critical that he or she resign from this anti-gun group. You can do your part by contacting your mayor's office today and urging your mayor to withdraw his or her MAIG membership. A number of mayors have already quit the anti-gun Bloomberg coalition and yours should be the next one to do so.

Please call, e-mail and write your mayor today and ask him or her to support law-abiding gun owners by publicly disassociating with Michael Bloomberg and "Mayors Against Illegal Guns." Help your mayor make the right choice between protecting your Second Amendment rights or continuing to be associated with those who actively oppose and undermine your firearms freedom.

If your mayor is a current MAIG member, (http://www.nraila.org/Issues/FactSheets/Read.aspx?id=254&issue=011) please use the contact information provided to urge your mayor to resign from this national anti-gun group today. If a former MAIG member, contact your mayor and thank him or her for disassociating from Michael Bloomberg and his national gun control group.

The action that you take today will protect your Second Amendment rights tomorrow.

Not surprised that Columbia, SC Mayor Bob Coble is on the list. He shouldn't be in office for too much longer and should be losing this next time around.

Zero in the UP. My village doesn't have a mayor either.

Helllll to the no. None in UT at all, at least that are stupid enough to go on record. SLC's former mayor would have done something like this, the new one isn't necessarily friendlier, just smarter.

Utah is always close but no cigar on the brady grading system, I'm REALLY hoping that with parking lot posession and car-carry without a permit passing this year, we will make the cut and get an 'F'. :)

All the small town mayors here are democrat. None have evre voiced an opinion about gun ownership, an that I know of none have ever dissented from or publicly disagreed with Ky state law. Oddly enough our county and state have went republican in nearly every presidential election for the last 3 decades.

My mayor and I applied for our carry permit at the same time. I think he's alright!
