It looks like karma is catching up with Mayor Bloomberg and his MAIG Civilian Disarmament Alliance these days. After a notable FAIL trying to bully a state-level gun control bill into law in Nevada he has contnued to build momentum in further MAIGFAIL (a new term designating Mayors Against Illegal Guns) :
Mayor Larry Morrissey of Rockford, IL decided that the to withdraw from the
Legion of Doom MAIGFAIL coalition, citing the “mission sway” of the group which initially focused on enforcing existing gun laws , not its current mission of making all guns illegal, THEN enforcing vilian diasarmament laws.
- “I don't want to put my family's life at risk or my own life at risk if I can otherwise protect myself.”
- It gets even more interesting when we learn that Mayor Morrissey will also seek a concealed carry permit (think about this- he enjoys a higher level of police protection than the average law-abiding citizen) once Illinois gets with the 2000s and passes the proposed law: “Any doubt that I might have had in my opinions about concealed carry when I first came into office changed quickly as I became an elected official and became very familiar with the types of crimes we're dealing with,” Morrissey said. “The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens.“
That was before MAIG was caught padding its pseudofacts when they named dead murderers and terrorists, including criminals who were killed by police such as Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnev, as victims of gun violence at a rally in New Hampshire. I wonder if they will paint over the names of the terrorists and murderers that adorn the sides of their bus- it's a MAIGFAIL if you paint over them and also if you leve them on…
The Bloomberg MAIGFAIL parade also made a stop at Mike's own doorstep recently- despite the fact that MAIG is a PAC it turns out that the MAIG website is managed by the city of New York and hosted on official NYC servers and handled by government staffers.
- This instance of MAIGFAIL is called financial corruption
- Also it's official: MAIG is propaganda now that the NYC government is literally operating the squawkbox. Where does the line between Bloomberg's personal fortune and the NYC government start and stop again?
