Former member of Bloomberg gun group: Yep, they’re trying to confiscate legal guns

posted at 10:01 pm on February 12, 2014 by Mary Katharine Ham

It’s worth checking in with this quickly dwindling activist group of “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” every now and then, many of whom have discovered the group was a tad too much “Mayors Against Law-Abiding Citizens With Legal Guns” for their taste. The group got so much ink for their allegedly reasonable gun-control position post-Newtown, we should occasionally discuss why 50 mayors have left the group, including the mayor of Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Via The Free Beacon, here’s Mayor John Tkazyik:

I’m the mayor of one of the largest cities in the Hudson Valley, just 90 minutes north of New York City. I’m a life member of the National Rifle Association and a former member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, or MAIG, started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2006.

I’m no longer a member of MAIG. Why? Just as Ronald Reagan said of the Democratic Party, it left me. And I’m not alone: Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did. MAIG became a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda — violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and taking resources away from initiatives that could actually work to protect our neighborhoods and save precious lives. […]

It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns; that under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens. I don’t believe, never have believed and never will believe that public safety is enhanced by encroaching on our right to bear arms, and I will not be a part of any organization that does.

Buzzfeed has reported on MAIG’s falling numbers before.

As Jazz Shaw has pointed out, the group’s leadership is likely to get worse, not better.

But us civilized modern citizens know that running to the nearest campus call box or calling the PD won’t do when immediate action may be needed.

Oh, and thanks to the gun, the wild west became a lot less wild.

The really funny part, they hit one of the women one time.

Mark & gabby are still running their mouths.

They never stop.

Is that the same Gabby who shot pistols before her incident, and would that be the same Mark who tried to buy an AR15 after saying no one needs such a firearm?

Bishop on February 12, 2014 at 10:31 PM

There sure are some seriously stupid trolls here. HotGas should require some sort of proficiency and intelligence tests for their trolls.

I think we need more of the wild west not less.

this is not the wild wild west, no citizen NEEDS a gun to live.

Awe sh!t! Wish I’d have known this yesterday before I had to save myself from a ground squirrel caught in my box trap.

I’m a 5’2 115 lb WOMAN.

I refer to my firearms-yes that’s plural- as my ‘rape whistles’.
I have a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep firearms to protect me and mine.
Screw you!

your risk of being raped is less serious in the grand scheme of things than innocents being killed in a gun massacre

Btw, why are you people feeding this worthless troll???

It increases the post count. Really. Go back to the top of this thread and subtract n/p’s posts and all responses to same. What, you’d have 6, 7 posts left.

guns shouldn’t be legal in the first place

Only people who should own guns in a civilized modern society are cops and soldiers.

this is not the wild wild west, no citizen NEEDS a gun to live.

Guns: For those times when seconds count and the police are minutes away.

Ever been to Switzerland, Newtie?

With the exception of the troll, most people consider it one of the most civilized societies on Earth.

Even though Switzerland has not been involved in an armed conflict since a standoff between Catholics and Protestants in 1847, the Swiss are very serious not only about their right to own weapons but also to carry them around in public. Because of this general acceptance and even pride in gun ownership, nobody bats an eye at the sight of a civilian riding a bus, bike or motorcycle to the shooting range, with a rifle slung across the shoulder.

300,000,000 guns in circulation.

90,000,000 gun owners.

That ship has sailed. The cat is out of the bag. The genie is out of the bottle. The horse has left the barn. Pick your favorite cliché. We’re NOT surrendering our rights, to you, your lord and savior, or anyone else. If you don’t like it, move to Cuba. Or jump off a bridge. I don’t care. Cut the crap, weakling. In the Serengeti of life, you’d die a painful and sudden death, wuss.

conservative hispanic on February 12, 2014 at 10:34 PM

should a guy with mental issues be able to get a gun? I mean, after all, the constitution doesn’t limit guns to only normal functioning citizens…right, riiiIIIGHT?!

nonpartisan on February 12, 2014 at 10:29 PM

Well since you don’t own one I think we may be on the right track.

Sorry to upset you.
I’m pointing out the reason he’s suddenly full of NRA slogans.
Good chance if he ever runs for national office from NY, his press release will include ‘one of the founding members of MAIG’…
