Persing’s Continuing Membership Questioned.
Recent news that the mayor of Poughkeepsie NY, along with many others, has resigned from the Michael Bloomberg group, “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG), raises once again the issue of the continuing membership and support for this group by our own Mayor Persing.
Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik, in a recent statement, blew the whistle about the group’s true intentions – total disarmament of all law-abiding gun owners.
“Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens,” Tkazyik said, confirming what many already suspected about the group.
Illegal Guns to Include ALL Guns!
“Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did,” he also added.
So, although the title may reflect the aims of the group, it hides the fact that they intend to move the goalposts. “Illegal guns”, if Bloomberg gets his way, will include ALL guns. Just as happened in Australia, where citizen guns were confiscated, they want to repeat the same exercise in the US.
Armed with this knowledge can we expect to see white smoke rising from the top of City Hall in Sunbury, to herald the announcement of a new policy for Persing – that he will respect the rights of Sunbury citizens by joining the growing exodus from this discredited organization?
If Persing does not immediately resign from “Mayors Against Illegal Guns”, we can only presume that he enthusiastically supports Bloomberg’s hidden agenda and that of President Obama – to trample on the Second Amendment and remove from Americans in general and Sunburians in particular their rights to gun ownership, their only real defense against future tyranny.
People of Sunbury, you have been warned!
