SAF Launches “Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors” Project


Press release:

BELLEVUE, WA – Inviting Americans to “Meet the Mayors” who have been involved in the anti-gun-rights Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Second Amendment Foundation is launching a campaign in newspapers, magazines and on the Internet that exposes the criminal and ethical wrongdoings of many members of that organization. [Click here for SAF’s “Meet the Mayors” ad.] “Michael Bloomberg created this group to further his personal agenda of public disarmament,” noted SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “But within the ranks of his organization, our research has found several politicians who have been convicted of various serious crimes, thus making it impossible for them to finish their terms . . .

“We discovered,” he continued, “one mayor convicted of perjury and embezzlement, another who was convicted of attempted child molestation, and yet another who was convicted of assault and racketeering. There was one who was convicted on bribery, fraud and money laundering, and another who was convicted of domestic violence.

“In short,” Gottlieb explained, “many of these elitist politicians can no longer own firearms. The crimes they were convicted of suggest they are public enemies rather than public servants. No wonder they want to take guns from law-abiding citizens!”

“Perhaps Bloomberg should worry about background checks on his colleagues, rather than law-abiding gun owners,” he suggested.

Gottlieb said SAF research discovered a far higher rate of criminal activity within the ranks of the MAIG than among the ranks of more than 8 million citizens who are licensed to carry concealed firearms in 49 states.

“While Michael Bloomberg has been campaigning to turn gun owners into criminals,” Gottlieb said, “the criminals in his own ranks were engaged in such activities as tax evasion , extortion, accepting bribes, child pornography, trademark counterfeiting and perjury. One was even convicted of assaulting a police officer.

“And these people have the audacity to smear law-abiding gun owners as potential criminals, simply because they exercise their constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” he concluded. “He should pay more attention to what his friends are up to than worry about the gun owners he’s been trying to demonize.”

    Have I ever mentioned how much I love the folks at the SAF?

    I think that deserves a check to the SAF.

    1. avatar surlycmd says:

      A damn fine idea!

    2. avatar Aharon says:


      SAF is a great organization. They deserve our support. I appreciate their efforts along with the GOA, OFF (Oregon where I live), and the JPFO.

  3. avatar JPD says:

    Now this is a battleground that we can all support. Instead of being stupid, like our friend in Arizona, lets get behind the effort to communicate this type to information to the country.

    Secondly, actively campaign, and support the efforts to get these clowns out of office. For my part, being in Texas, see what I can do to clean up Austin and Brownsville.

    Way to go SAF!!

    1. avatar Roll says:

      Friend in Arizona? Who is this and what did I miss?

      1. avatar JPD says:

        The gun store owner with sh*t for brains that is all over the media with his sign and comments about those that voted for Obama.

  4. Don’t forget the Bloomberg changed the two term limits to suite his agenda through intimidation.

  5. avatar Gregolas says:

    WOW! What a GREAT idea! Outstanding use of irony. This will get me to put a crowbar to my wallet and re-up my SAF membership.

  6. avatar TheSleeperHasAwakened says:

    This is fantastic! I absolutely love it!!!

    BTW, what the fawk is an “Illegal Gun” anyway?

    1. avatar JPD says:

      Haven”t you heard? To the Brady bunch, ALL guns are potentially “illegal”. You see, since were are gun owners, we are mentally unstable, per the anti gun crowd.

      Any minute, each and everyone one of us will eventually go off our rocker and commit a mass murder, a la Aurora. Thus, making each and every gun “illegal”.

      Apparently, per the anti gun crowd, each gun is “EEEVIL”, and is casting that influence on us, turning us into mass murderers.

      So, all those guns in my gun cabinet are at this minute plotting to take over my mind and cause massive loss of life.

      1. avatar TheSleeperHasAwakened says:

        Aye, that was exactly my point.

        The whole campaign (Mayor Against Illegal Guns) is a PsyOp to disingenuously characterize all guns as illegal and therefore all Gun Owners as law breakers.

        However, Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors very succinctly characterizes these Mayors as law breakers 🙂

        1. avatar Gyufygy says:

          GOAIM sounds pretty close to “goyim”, which I think is Yiddish for Gentile. Nice counterpart to JPFO. 😀

  7. avatar OHgunner says:

    Good for them.

  8. avatar SDFreeman says:

    Way to go SAF for showing the true mature behind these folks

  9. avatar Aharon says:

    I liked how the poster referred to Bloomberg as ‘The Godfather’.

    1. avatar surlycmd says:

      I though the “Godfather” was the Mayor of Chicago?

      1. avatar speedracer5050 says:

        Nah he is the “Gutless Fuhrer err Father”. Sorry had a typo!! snicker snicker

        1. avatar Aharon says:

          Obama is the Fuhrer
          Bloomberg is the Godfather
          Rahm is the Gutless Fuhrer
          What are Biden and Feinstein?

        2. avatar speedracer5050 says:

          Obama is the Fuhrer
          Bloomberg is the Godfather
          Rahm is the Gutless Fuhrer
          What are Biden and Feinstein?
          Twiddle Dumb and Twiddle Ignorant!!!
          Or Identical Twins sharing the 1IQ point they were alloted between them.

      2. avatar Aharon says:

        Chicago’s Rahm is the shrieking desert shiek.

  10. avatar AlphaGeek says:

    That is all sorts of awesome. Proud to count myself as an SAF supporter.

  11. avatar Ralph says:

    “Perhaps Bloomberg should worry about background checks on his colleagues, rather than law-abiding gun owners.”

    That’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever read!

  12. avatar Average_Casey says:

    This is awesome, if I still lived in the Seattle area, I would try to work for the SAF.

  13. avatar Mr. Pierogie says:

    I see plenty of NJ politicians on the list…why am I not surprised? Thanks SAF, I’m glad I’m a member. Anybody know what’s the news on their lawsuit in NJ against judges who denied issuing CCW permits?

  14. avatar Sanchanim says:

    Way to go SAF!
    I have to agree, the truth hurts, doesn’t it?
    Criminals are running the asylum in this instance I believe. It is high time the light of reality was shown on those who wish to take away our freedoms.

  15. avatar Lance says:

    Good thats good . Just hope the NY and NJ mob wont attack SAF, LOL joke.

  16. avatar Aharon says:


    Everytime I see those three initials it reminds me of living in San Francisco and reading dating posts on Craigslist by Single Asian Females.

  17. avatar philthegardner says:

    That is so cool. SAF just got extra funds from me. I want these guys watching my back.

  18. avatar In Memphis says:

    Bring your child to work day? Nah, how about bring a mayor to the range day?

  19. avatar DerryM says:

    This is a great tactic by SAF. Hope they can get some coverage in MSM.

  20. avatar Jeff in MS says:

    Some of the data in the SAF poster is incorrect. Do your homework before you quote it.

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Not that your advice isn’t a good general rule, but could you possibly be more vague about what is incorrect? I don’t know, maybe narrow down to either the black or the red text? Or is it just some of the information that appears on a white background? Or is that photo not really of Michael Bloomberg?

    2. avatar Dan says:

      What data is incorrect? Be *specific*.
