Misanthropic? Me? Inconceivable. points out that Phoenix (AZ) Mayor Greg Stanton is a member of MAIG – Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a gun control group founded by that champion of personal liberty, NYC Mayor MICHAEL BLOOMBERG!
You remember him? The guy who just banned large sugary fountain drinks in New York City, who previously banned salt, trans-fats and smoking. That famous individual rights guy…
Some folks on the Internet call the group Illegal Mayors Against Guns. Go to their website and draw your own conclusions. It is an interesting factoid that august members of this group have bigger rap sheets than the firearm-carrying public! And they try to keep this under wraps!
Oh, by-the-way, Tucson (AZ) Mayor Jennifer Eckstrom is also a member. Quelle surprise. I’m shocked, shocked I tell you!
I wonder if if city tax dollars are paying for a funded liaison to the group, as in other member cities?
