Exclamation CGSSA News: From MAIG to NRA in less than a week

Quote:
Brought to us by Our NRA Leaders


mayorsagainstillegalguns "Link" - Thx Paul

Reach out to your local Mayor and find out where they stand.

The attached letter is from the mayor of Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Our NRA and Members' Council activists started contacting him regarding his membership in Bloomberg's MAIG group less than a week ago.

Per this letter and other conversations, he has resigned from MAIG and now wants to join the NRA. Special thanks goes to Steve Gomez for his effort in this project!

We have a little follow-up work to do, as well as a face-to-face meeting in the near future. But he really wants to be our friend.

Nice work!! folks. Now, let's inform Everyone, that its time to chat with some other mayors. ;-)

Sent the Mayor a mail thanking him for doing the right thing. Maybe it's stupid but I guess it can't hurt to encourage this sort of thing, plus everybody likes a pat on the back. :-P

I spent 50-60 hours identifying all the members of MAIG to let them know what this org was about but nothing came of it. I am glad one mayor has learned the truth!!!

I just wish the other 800 or so mayors could have been contacted by the project that went no where IE; the bridge to no where

We had all the names and contacts info for these mayors, AND NOTHING HAPPENED!!!

YES! i'm bitter.

Do you have a link to your arguments against the group? I see my Mayor on the list so I'd like to look into it.

I think the MAIG should be renamed to MAGIG (Mayors Against Guns In General), to reflect their true intentions...
