U.S. Mayors' gun control group merges with Moms Demand Action


NEW YORK Thu Dec 19, 2013 12:03pm EST

(Reuters) - Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a gun control group founded and financed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, announced on Thursday it will merge with another gun control group, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

The mayors' group will unite its grassroots, policy and field forces with the mothers' group "to enact common-sense policies that respect the rights of gun owners while keeping firearms out of dangerous hands," the groups said in a statement.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns was formed in 2006 as the brainchild of Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, both of whom will leave office at the end of the year. They argued that mayors were uniquely sensitive to gun violence as it often falls to them to comfort the families of slain police officers.

The group now includes more than 1,000 mayors.

et seq

...but undoubtedly his campaign underlings have access to every contact MAIG/MMM/Everytown for Gun Safety/MDA
have or ever had, and are trawling them as I write this.

No doubt Bloomie will poll well with the quiet (and some not-so-quiet) suburban racists that either
approved (or simply elided) his stop-and-frisk policies and racism towards Muslims

2. "I *know* he had it in mind all along" After some consideration, I think you're right.

Especially after reading this (somewhat long) article in the New Republic

I think the writer is wrong about Deval Patrick's backing (Bain Capital and/or Mitt Romney,
not the Obamas), but spot on about Bloomberg:

https://newrepublic.com/article/155789/theres-one-way-patrick-bloomberg-campaigns-make-sense

There’s Only One Way the Patrick and Bloomberg Campaigns Make Sense


Look for lots and lots of oh-no-they're-not-a-bit-racist ads from Bloomie aimed at white women voters,
while keeping his muted 'apology' for stop-and-frisk on the downlow so as to alarm as few former
Trump voters as possible...

3. I was right: Bloomberg Is Starting His Campaign With A Big Asset--His Gun-Control Group's Email List

His campaign is “temporarily renting” the addresses of Moms Demand Action’s supporters
