The Washington Examiner has recently released a report stating that a staggering 15% of mayors who have joined MAIG (Mayors Against Illegal Guns) have left the anti-gun organization over the past year.
The group was founded by ex-Mayors Thomas and Michael Bloomberg in 2006, and at its highest point it boasted a membership of 1,046. That was 2012. Today the number stands at 885.
According to MAIG Chairman John Feinblatt, the reason for the decline is "just the natural course of events that mayors leave and join our coalition based on the electoral cycle."
Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did. MAIG became a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda — violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and taking resources away from initiatives that could actually work to protect our neighborhoods and save precious lives. Gun control will actually make a bad situation worse.
