450 Mayors Petition Obama To Adopt Broad Gun Reform (Gun Grabbers Inc.)
washingtonpost ^ | 10/3/2009 | Staff

Posted on 10/05/2009 1:35:35 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA

A new report from a national coalition of mayors urges President Obama to adopt dozens of reforms to help curb gun violence, including steps to crack down on problems at gun shows and the creation of a federal interstate firearms trafficking unit.

The "Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns," a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post, presents 40 recommendations that "would dramatically improve law enforcement's ability to keep guns out of the hands of criminals -- and, in doing so, save innocent lives."

The strategies outlined by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan group of about 450 mayors nationwide, focus on the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The agency, which has been sent a copy of the report, declined to comment.

Screw their laws. I'll abide by the BIG one.

My God given right to protect myself as I see fit. If that includes having and using a gun then that's what it will be.

They can kiss my Texas ass!

Isn’t “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” the same group as “Mayors For Illegal Aliens”?

The usual nonsense from Bloomberg and the Brady Bunch.

If mayors are so concerned with gun violence there is a simple way they can address the problem: (1) Instruct police to shoot on sight when they spot an armed criminal (2) Pass laws that require mandatory 20-year sentence enhancement when convicted of a gun crime (3) Help arm and instruct local business owners on armed self defense (4) Wire up trouble zones with cameras like London.

The Supreme Court said Federal gun control laws are a non-starter ... My only conclusion is 450 mayors can’t read and should be put out to pasture.

Probably a good deal to get rid of 450 useless liberal mayors at one shot.

Great, 450 mayors who have never been educated with regard to the Second Amendment to the Constitution of these United States of America.

Didn’t they take an oath?

Can them, one and all!

Amazing, isn’t it? I think PA actually has the largest # of mayors......I find that unbelievable with how big of a gun state PA is.

Word has got to get out of this, and these clowns need to be voted out.

My question is, what exactly is an “illegal gun”?????

All guns are legal, even machine guns. If the mayors cannot even sign their name to an organization with the proper name, what good are they for anything else?

Yeah, I don’t want the federal government involved in ‘investigating’ me for ‘allededly’ owning/manufacturing/selling guns.

Please get the word out to other gun owners, and also call and write to let these mayors know that it is unacceptable they belong to Bloomburg’s group.

These people are effin loons!

Agents at gun shows should “develop undercover integrity tests” to determine whether felons or out-of-state residents are making illegal purchases.

Kind of surprised Bill White (D-Houston) didn’t sign it, but he’s got his eyes on the US Senate.

This is the Bloomberg group. Mayors have been dropping off of the list in droves after learning that the goal is anti-second amendment and has little to do with actually keeping guns from criminals.

Mayor Shirley Franklin
Atlanta, GA

Mayor Jere Wood
Roswell, GA

Mayor John Fretti
Valdosta, GA

Mayor Donnie Henriques
Woodstock, GA

While I am unsurprised about Atlanta's mayor -- she's a ditz -- I am surprised about the other mayors. They are in rural areas (except Savannah, but that is a city in the middle of a rural area). Seems like there should be a few 'forced retirements' from this list.

There are no plans for public release of the document, which is being distributed to key members of Obama's administration

Another day, another lack of transparency.

Yes indeed. GUNS ARE THE REASON WHY PEOPLE COMMIT CRIMES. So, all we need to do is get rid of guns and no more crimes/sarc

If the truth could be known, what would anyone bet that Marxist Obama's operatives are clandestinely responsible for many of the elements of this so called..."Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns,"?

So we should expect that all these mayors will instruct their personal bodyguards to discard their guns toot sweet? Let me know when THAT happens.

a lot of these towns in Pennsylvania are so small I imagine an gun owning citizen could go knock on the Mayor’s front door and tell him exactly what he or she thinks of this letter...which, I suspect, many will do

Ah yes, the old "450 whatevers" trick. I think this started with the "400 historians" who weighed in on Clinton's impeachment. Since then we've had 400 scientists, 400 paleoenterologists... today Obama had 150 doctors in for a Rose Garden event.

I guess the lefties think this stuff is persuasive, as if we're all too stupid to know they cherry-pick their historians and so on to say whatever they want.

Mayor Tina Hagenbuch
Weissport, PA

Weissport—population 450
strip out kids, illegals and felons, nothing left.
By the way, she would not have the nerve to make her stance public, this area is very gun friendly.

“...steps to crack down on problems at gun shows...”

Thank goodness! Here are the problems at gunshows I’d like to see addressed:

1. Distant parking
2. Not enough ammo
3. Too much flea market crap, beanie babies, jerky
4. Too few private sellers (making the transaction unreported to the government).
5. Unrealistically high prices.
6. Annoying security guards who make you take off the sticker on your back that says what you’re looking for (they expect me to buy a booth?)
7. The geezers in the good locations with the same crap they’ve been displaying for years without selling anything.
8. The fact that our highest denomination currency is only $100, which means a fat wad if you plan any serious shopping. (The Euros have a bill worth over $700, but then again they don’t have gun shows).
9. Rules against concealed carry.
10. ATF hassling the best sellers.

Mayor Greg Nickels
Seattle, WA

Hey Mayor Mc Cheese made the list, no surprises there... the guys a LOSER !

SAF.ORG is going to sue his fat arse off!

Washington State Attorney Rob McKenna has even stated that Mayor Fatty Mc Cheese Nickels can’t ban any guns anywhere in WA State.

BTW an illegal gun is like the one the Seattle Chief of Police LOST.. another 5-star dumb arse !
