Florida: Pro-Gun Candidate Defeats Anti-Gun Mayor of Lakeland

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

On Tuesday, November 5, city Commissioner Howard Wiggs defeated anti-gun incumbent Lakeland Mayor Gow Fields.  The defeat of this anti-gun extremist marks a huge victory for Second Amendment supporters and sportsmen.  Mayor-elect Howard Wiggs has pledged to defend the Second Amendment rights of responsible gun owners in Lakeland, and can be counted on to oppose efforts for increased restrictions on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

By contrast, Mayor Gow Fields proudly aligned himself with an anti-gun extremist group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” (MAIG) that promotes gun bans and increased restrictions on law-abiding gun owners.  MAIG is founded and funded by radical anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  In addition, Gow Fields urged President Obama to support banning America’s most popular rifle, establish a national database of gun owners and require you to get government permission to give a gun to a relative.

Residents of Lakeland can be thankful that their Second Amendment rights now will be protected since they no longer have a Mayor who will work with Michael Bloomberg to implement his anti-gun agenda.

Thank you to all NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in Lakeland who went to the polls yesterday to vote for the only pro-gun candidate in this race, Howard Wiggs.  The defeat of anti-gun Mayor Gow Fields could not have been possible without your efforts.
