Mayors Against Illegal Guns Installing Full Time Lobbyists in City Management Nationwide

NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s MAIG organization is using grant money to partially fund full time paid lobbyist positions working directly in city governments across the country.  Sean Caranna, a Florida gun rights activist and founder of Florida Carry, recently uncovered several cities that have lobbyists working for them including Orlando, Seattle, Columbus and Minneapolis.

On average, taxpayers pay for approximately 25% of the cost of these employees including health insurance and vacation accrual among other benefits.

Some of these lobbyists are fully paid by the city themselves.  In Milwaukee, a full time police officer was taken off the street to serve as the city’s representative to MAIG.

Sean uncovered these so far:

    Alright then . . . pro Second Amendment Americans from coast-to-coast should respond by refusing to vacation in or in any way conduct business with the above jurisdictions.   They’re not against “illegal” guns . . . they’re against ALL guns and they know it!.

    We should make a conscious effort to not purchase a thing made in any of those cities.   When a municipality can decide on its own that it will no longer honor or respect a Constitutional Amendment then we should treat that jurisdiction with the honorable ignorance it richly deserves.

    Every one of them needs to be exposed in their local newspaper and local TV news.  What they are doing is in direct violation of their sworn duty to their constituents.  They have hired someone to find ways to violate or take away our Second Amendment rights.  AND THEY ARE USING OUT TAX MONEY TO DO IT!

    That Asshole Bloomberg really needs to stop his peronal agendas. He is so f-n sneaky like the rest of thos jerk off political baffoons. Pepole like him abuse there authority by means of of large bank accounts,. HOWEVER using tax dollars to create these positions and fund them? I don’t think so. Push hard to get this information out there please everyone!

    Thank you for exposing these frauds, Luke.  I live in Columbus, home of one of the looniest anti-gun mayors in the country.  And he was just re-elected.  Really pisses me off, but I feel powerless.

    Can’t they just rename this organization, Mayors against Guns. The illegal throws people off; they are against all guns and all gun owners. Why can’t they be honest about their agenda. They want to make all guns illegal so that no one can own them and only police can have them (or well connected individuals). In other words make gun ownership a privilege, not a rights. But that darn Constitution keeps getting in the way.

    Sigh, these anti-gun a-holes make me want to vomit. Now I read this article on the thieving bastards stealing my tax dollars to push their self serving “Obummer, look at me” agenda.
