450 Mayors Petition Obama To Adopt Broad Gun Reform

A new report from a national coalition of mayors urges President Obama to adopt dozens of reforms to help curb gun violence, including steps to crack down on problems at gun shows and the creation of a federal interstate firearms trafficking unit.

The “Blueprint for Federal Action on Illegal Guns,” a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post, presents 40 recommendations that “would dramatically improve law enforcement’s ability to keep guns out of the hands of criminals — and, in doing so, save innocent lives.”

The strategies outlined by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a bipartisan group of about 450 mayors nationwide, focus on the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The agency, which has been sent a copy of the report, declined to comment.

“Implementing these recommendations would achieve a goal that all participants in the gun debate support: enforcing laws already on the books,” says an accompanying letter signed by the coalition’s co-chairmen, Mayors Thomas M. Menino (D) of Boston and Michael R. Bloomberg (I) of New York.

Well, isn’t that a fine mess? Thank GOD there were NO Texas Mayors on this list. Even our Dem Mayors here in Texas aren’t that stupid.

I honestly wish Texas would just walk away and go back to being The Republic of Texas, a free and separate entity, all unto itself. It may become a real necessity if the Obama administration, and his far left moonbat support base aren’t stopped soon.

Below is more information from the NRA website, a listing of Mayor that are supporting this BS, with a map to pinpoint them and a link to find out how to get your Mayor OFF of this ridiculous list if they happen to be ON it.

Some local mayors have joined “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) which was founded and is funded by activist anti-gun billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Is your mayor one of them? Click here to find out! You may also look at the list below.

Despite its very misleading name, this national group of anti-gun mayors has lobbied Congress against national reciprocity of state Right-to-Carry permits, against much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), for regulating gun shows out of existence, and for repealing the Tiahrt Amendment that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners and limits disclosure of sensitive firearm trace data to protect law enforcement personnel and protect lawful gun manufacturers from bogus lawsuits.

This nation is already headed down the path to socialism my friends. The day that the morons in Washington, D.C. actually find the GUTS to TRY and take the guns from our citizenry, that will be the day that the United States of America ceases to exist.

We ALL want less crime, and we ALL certainly want less GUN crime, but here’s what the loons on the left, the Mayors that support this, and the anti-gun libbers won’t tell you, and likely won’t accept as a true fact. If every legal gun owner in America was disarmed, there would still be millions of illegal guns out there, in the hands of the criminals, and that is not a scenario I am wanting to face.
