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:
