    Rockford Illinois Mayor Larry Morrissey Quits MAIG - Cites Anti Gun Stance Of Group

    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.

    At least some of them are waking up to what Bloomberg's real goal.

    This post sparked my interest to look them up on Facebook and, I'll tell you what, I'm going to be having some fun with this.

    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!

    My escapades were short lived this morning, before everything I posted was deleted and I was banned. Free speech blah blah blah lol.

    I'm not surprised about the tax payer money!

    Many of the Mayors originally joined that because it seemed like the politically correct thing to do at the time but, they really didn't have any "skin, heart, or soul or money" in it and I think it will all fall apart pretty soon.

    Typical fare for this sort of thing. They have no respect for ANY Right, let alone the 2nd. Look at NYC stop & frisk BS.

    I would turn around and walk away after asking to see a warrant if they tried that crap with me.

    It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see a Mayor turn on Bloomies big-city shenanigans.

    It is interesting that he mentioned death threats. Lets see how many more he gets from the anti-gun nuts. They are way more violent than we are.

    Oh, that ain't the half of it!

    Bellevue group wants Bloomberg investigated by NYAG

    Following weekend revelations that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) website is registered to a New York City government server and apparently administered by city employees, a Bellevue-based gun rights group wants New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to investigate.

    Wow. Just wow. This man (Bloomie) has absolutely no shame. I applaud Mayor Morrissey for seeing the light and having enough backbone to take a stand against this hypocrisy. I predict there will be more mayors doing the same.

    That's a bit like asking the fox to find out who's stealing the chickens.

    I was reading this on Facebook. My opinion is that this LIBTARD realized there would be a backlash from voters Not everywhere in Illinois is like Chicago. Yea, the good mayor is backtracking. He's trying to convince you he didn't think BLOOMIE'S intention was not to deter guns from those who shouldn't have them, but to make all guns illegal.... He knew when he signed up for it.... Either that, or is sooo stupid he shouldn't have office to begin with.

    The fact that he joined in the first place should be more than enough to keep him from holding elected office. Anyone who joins a group that openly despises our Constitution deserves to be blacklisted, and this guy is no exception.

    Of course, we've all been saying all along that it is actually "Mayors Against Legal Gun owners"...glad to see some others are starting to see the light. Wondering what took so long.
