Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns has fallen by over 15 percent since December 2012
As it has broadened its attacks on lawmakers and Second Amendment groups like the National Rifle Association, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's aggressive “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” group has experienced a sharp 15-percent drop in mayor-members.
According to a new count, the group’s membership has gone from a high of 1,046 following the shootings at Newtown, Conn.’s Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 to a low today of 885.
That’s a fast drop of 161 members.
The shrinking membership has been noticed and charted by pro-gun groups and congressional supporters of the Second Amendment as evidence that the public and public officials are losing their appetite for greater gun control. . . .With over 35,000 cities and towns in the US, that means MAIG accounts for about 2.5 percent of all mayors and many of their towns are extremely small.
