Posted on 11/09/2011 8:46:59 AM PST by neverdem
Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a gun-control coalition founded by Michael Bloomberg and Thomas Menino, the mayors of New York and Boston, respectively. Bloomberg is an Independent who used to be a Republican, and Menino is a Democrat, but they share similar nanny-state proclivities. For example, back in April, Menino banned soft drinks, sports drinks, and sweetened iced tea from city property, ostensibly to combat rising obesity rates.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns spends a lot of its time agitating against concealed-carry laws, which are incompatible with the kind of helpless citizenry Bloomberg and Menino love to see wrapped in swaddling clothes and held tightly by Mother Government. They also applauded the Obama Administration's implementation of a new policy that will help curb illegal gun trafficking to Mexico, by which they meant a new gun-control law, not the end of the Obama Administrations frantic efforts to sell guns to Mexican drug lords.
Not only does this group include celebrity mayors, it also enjoys strong support from the Undead-American community. A Bitter post (thats the bloggers handle, although its also a good adjective for the post) at gun-rights blog Shall Not Be Questioned explains that Tom Martin, the mayor of Freeland Borough in Pennsylvania, sadly died of cancer in September 2010, but continues to sign statements and letters from Mayors Against Illegal Guns:
In fact, not only do they claim him as a member, but the deceased mayor has signed his name to at least two advertisements, three letters to Congress, and one letter to the President sent by Michael Bloombergs office. Now, just how on earth is Bloomberg getting a dead man to sign his letters? And why are media outlets running advertisements that are clearly fraudulent?...

Bloomberg was a Democrat before he was a Republican.
How about Mayors who want to increase the amount of innocent civilians killed because they can’t defend themselves because their 2nd Amendment Constitutional right which explicitly states shall not be infringed is in fact infringed by the very Mayors who swear to protect and defend it?
Bloomberg is a Republican? Who knew?
Well I’m going to assume that Mayor Martin was a Democrat. Therefore continuing to vote years after his death is pretty much par for the course.
"Fast & Furious" has always been about more gun control, period!
From The Ulsterman Report with White House Insider:
WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: They Got Obamacare Now They Want the 2nd Amendment
Insider: I mentioned a memo or a communication there was, or is something out there. Or it was circulating I dont have the exact specifics. But something was being planned directly connecting this Fast and Furious disaster and the Obama people some in the party an entire plan to initiate sweeping gun control legislation throughout the country. Now I didnt know this until after the fact. Didnt believe it at first. Seemed to even for this group seemed too damn far-reaching. You step back though watch what is being done, see how the dots start connecting then you find religion.
Tom Martin is probably a common name, but the former Tom Martin, the former mayor of Freeland Borough in Pennsylvania who died last year is rather specific. We shall see.
Come get some!
Will fail any major court tests. The Supremes would throw any challenge out on its ear.
I think both firearm ownership and states allowing CCW are both at all time highs, or at least at high points for the last 100 years. Whatever the Obamanistas may want, they haven't been awfully successful.
No such organization? Well, there damn well should be!!!!
He ran as a Repub just to get on the ballot but he’s a hardcore lib which is why he’s kissing the arses of the occupy Wall street anarchists and commies. Hey he grew up in Assachussets what do you expect? The state that took Obama, made him white and named him Mitt Romney. “Yeaaah, he’s a Republicaaan. Yeeaaah that’s the ticket!”
Tom Menino is also a draft dodger. He lied on his civil service registration claiming to be married with children when in fact he was single. To my knowledge, not a single family member (surname Menino) has ever served in uniform since their family go off he boat.
Not necessarily true. My father mostly voted republican, but he's been voting the straight Democratic ticket ever since he died almost 40 years ago.
He was always a Democrat until he ran for Mayor. That was just a way to get in the door. Mark Green was the Democratic candidate.
Not if Clarence Thomas ate some bad mushrooms and Obama got to put another Kagan-style pervert-Red on the High Court.
and if you hook a generator up to it, you can power your house.
