Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns has fallen by over 15 percent since December 2012

From the Washington Examiner:
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
