With founders Michael Bloomberg and Thomas Menino about to leave office the groups styling itself Mayors Against Illegal Guns seems to be losing more than a few of its members. In addition to the craptastic duo of Bloomberg/Menino the group is also losing Mayor Satish Hiremath from Oro Valley, Arizona.
Mayor Hiremath resigned the organization after an email from the pro-gun group Arizona Citizens Defense League (ACDL) sent an email to supporters identifying Mayors from the Grand Canyon State that were members of MAIG. The mayor seems to have had a little help and now sees what most anyone else who follow this group sees, MAIG is not about keeping illegal guns out of the hands of criminals it is about keeping guns out of the hands of law-abiding American citizens. In his resignation letter he states:
I am forwarding my resignation to the Mayors Against Illegal Guns along with my recommendation that the group focus its efforts on what I believe was the original premise to deal with ‘illegal guns.
Let’s hope other mayors, including the current mayor of Houston, TX can soon see the light as well.
