Our friend Katie Pavlich suggests that all isn’t caviar and roses in Bloombergia:
Mayors once part of former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns [MAIG] continue to leave the organization in droves, citing attacks on the Second Amendment and law abiding citizens as the reason for exiting.
Mayor John Tkazyik of Poughkeepsie, New York is one of the group’s most recent defectors. Writing in the Poughkeepsie Journal this week, Tkazyik explained in detail that Bloomberg’s anti-gun organization isn’t about enforcing gun laws, but instead about promoting gun confiscation.
This is hardly a shock to any of us here at Bearing Arms since we’ve covered Bloomberg’s confiscatory efforts as a matter of routine, but it is nice to see that mayors are realizing that MAIG isn’t a violence prevention group, but is instead a citizen control cult dedicated to the eradication of civil rights.
The group is hemorrhaging membership. At least Bloomie has Shannon Watts and her band of uninformed demanding grandmothers to keep his hopes of destroying the Second Amendment alive for a little longer, at least until the former Monsanto and Democrat public relations pro is offered a higher paying job.
