Rockford Illinois Mayor Larry Morrissey announced his resignation from MAIG at a townhall appearance June 22nd stating the chief reason he left Bloomberg's group is because he thought the group would be against illegal guns but has instead become a group looking for ways to ban legal guns and attack the rights of legal gun owners.

Dunno 'bout the brains part ... how much "brains" does it take to figure out MAIG is anti-gun?:scrutiny:

Still, kudos for the intellectual honesty atleast.

HA, just to add salt into the wound, so to speak, it appears Bloomberg has been caught using taxpayer money to fund the MAIG website!

I wonder who will be the next to leave the MAIG group? If a dozen or so soon follow...it can really get interesting.....

Now about that link about Bloomberg funding the MAIG website with taxpayer money....The article brings up an important point about if there is smoke there normally is fire...Which begs to ask the question of what else will be uncovered?

It's actually worse than that story reports. I did a WHOIS on the domain and not only is the domain registered to NYC, it is also hosted on NYC servers. That makes it a whole lot more that $50.

This WHOIS: http://betterwhois.com/bwhois.cgi?domain=mayorsagainstillegalguns.org&x=65&y=18

Shows the nameservers pointing to nyc.gov servers!

I don't really care HOW he came to this revelation. What I do care is that his stance against the Bloomberg group is now a matter of public record. That's a big blow to that group.

You just have to wonder about the rationale for the name of this group: Mayors Against Illegal Guns. I'd want my mayor be a member of that group, IF it simply did what the name implies it would do.

Any mayor who respects the rule of law, even regarding laws he does not like, would naturally be against illegal guns, right? Such a person would be against illegal everything. Now, he might at the same time be pushing for that law to change, but while it's the law and he's the mayor, he'd have to be in support of those within the local jurisdiction who enforce laws--he's their boss--and therefore he'd have to be opposed to illegal guns.

Mayor Larry Morrissey of Rockford IL: "The reason why I joined the group in the first place is because I took the name for what it said. Against Ďillegalí guns. As the original mission swayed, thatís when I decided that it was no longer in line with my beliefs. ... So thatís why I dropped out. The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens."

I think one would have to be really, really dense to believe that the thrust of gun control since Big Tim Sullivan in 1911 on up to today has been at controlling illegal guns and criminals; it has always been aimed at legal guns and lawabiding gun owners.

The Obama Administration drive for gun control uses statistics from the National Survey on Private Ownership and use of Firearms, a survey on how ordinary citizens acquire guns and what they use them for.

The Obama Administration drive for gun control does NOT use statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics State Inmate and Federal Inmate Surveys on how criminals acquire illegal guns for criminal use.

Since everyone else in the world knew from day one what MAIG was really all about, one could question his motives.

All it takes is one survey that shows 2% more of the voter population thinks another way, and many politicians will flip flop. Sadly, we're not necessarily talking moral people here.
