I call BS. In true liberal political fashion, most of those wanting out of the deal have realized they picked the wrong side. Now that elections are coming up, they needed a way out. They are now claiming ignorance and deception?
They didn’t know where Bloomberg stood on gun rights issues? Really?
My mayor (a moderate pubbie) said really.
I was pissed when I found out that he was a member. He said that he thought it was dedicated to removing guns from gangs. When he was still a member a couple of months later I confronted him about it again. This time he just said "I haven't gotten around to it (quitting) yet." Not too long after that he told me that he was no longer a member.
BTW: he's not seeking reelection.
