Indiana Mayor Latest to Leave Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Coalition

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

Fairfax, VA - Carmel, Indiana Mayor Jim Brainard is the most recent addition to a list of the nation’s mayors to resign from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition.

“These mayors, one-by-one, have come to realize the misinformation Bloomberg has given them regarding the true intent of his coalition,†said Chris W. Cox, NRA’s chief lobbyist. “The real agenda is not taking firearms out of the hands of criminals, but gaining access to confidential law enforcement information for the purposes of bringing predatory lawsuits against firearms manufacturers and retailers.â€

Bloomberg’s efforts are in direct opposition to the position taken by NRA, the National Fraternal Order of Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the U.S. Department of Justice. NRA stands with leading law enforcement groups in opposing the release of this confidential information because it’s release will infringe on the privacy rights of law-abiding American citizens, compromise on-going investigations and endanger the safety of law enforcement officers.

“I applaud Mayor Brainard and other mayors who realized they were mislead and resigned from this anti-gun coalition,†said Cox. “If Mayor Bloomberg were serious about getting guns out of the hands of criminals, he would push to enforce current laws 100 percent of the time, as well as prosecute criminals to the fullest extent of the law. At the same time, he would respect the Second Amendment rights of American citzens.â€

From VCDL Alert:
15. New Jersey Mayor Resigns from Bloomberg Coalition

Yet another mayor sees through the lies and deceit of Bloomberg.
What is scary is how many are still foolishly following Bloomberg's
lead - like Richmond Mayor Doug Wilder:


New Jersey Mayor Quits Bloomberg Coalition: "I joined your coalition
because of its purported purpose to combat the criminal acquisition
and misuse of guns, which is a goal shared by all Americans," wrote
Moore in his resignation letter to Mr. Bloomberg. "Regrettably, it
has become abundantly clear to me that you are using this coalition
of mayors to advance a hidden agenda of bringing lawsuits against
members of the firearms industry and spreading anti-gun propaganda."
