Three Indiana Mayors Defect from National Gun Control Group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”

Friday, September 25, 2009

Earlier this month, NRA-ILA sent out a mailing to NRA Members informing them if their local major was a member of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.”  Within three weeks, approximately 50 mayors nationally have resigned from the coalition.

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.

Y
OUR VOICES HAVE BEEN HEARD! The mayors of Warsaw, Portland, and Tell City have dropped their membership from “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.”

Please contact your mayor today and thank them for listening to their constituents and disassociating themselves from Michael Bloomberg and his national gun control group.  Contact information can be found below.
