Florida’s 55 anti-Second Amendment mayors


Lee’s Note: This just in from the folks at Florida Carry, a list of Florida mayors who are members of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

Florida’s 55 Bloomberg Anti-Second Amendment Mayors


If your Mayor is on this list, please take a moment to ask why your elected officials are fighting against your right to bear arms.

As unlikely as it may seem to those of us who pay attention to Second Amendment issues, there may still be some Florida Mayors Against illegal Guns (MAIG) Mayors who have been mislead by lies fed to them by Bloomberg’s anti-gun group.  We have the emails sent to Florida Mayors from MAIG claiming that they support the Second Amendment, we even have emails from known anti-gun Police Chiefs and Sheriffs reassuring some mayors that MAIG is just “helping to target illegal guns, not legal gun owners”.

They may not have noticed that MAIG has opposed every pro-gun and floridacarrypro-self-defense legislative initiative proposed in Florida and nationally since the group was founded.

It may have missed their radar that MAIG has supported the adoption of some of the most draconian anti-gun laws in this nation’s history.

Nobody may have told them about the “merger” of MAIG with the “Moms Demand Action” gun control group and the MAIG created “Shoot First” lobbying initiative that supports gutting Florida’s self-defense laws; Most egregiously trying to argue that you should even have a duty to retreat from your own home during a home invasion.

The fact is, if MAIG were really only targeting ILLEGAL gun users, We’d support them.  But that is clearly not their goal. Instead they target the places where you shop, your churches, and your local government.  MAIG is targeting YOU to make your guns illegal.

Please take a moment to ask these Mayors why they are fighting against your right to defend yourself and your family.

  2. It’s inaccurate to conflate advocacy for common sense regulation of gun ownership with out and out opposition to the Second Amendment. Every one of the rights in the Bill of Rights comes with restrictions and responsibilities. The Second Amendment is not superior nor inferior to any of them. Just as my right to free speech stops at the point when it is irresponsibly used (yelling fire in a crowded theater) your right to a gun ends at the point where it’s an endangerment to my safety. What you oppose is any view that contradicts your absolutist definition of the Second Amendment. You lie or at least exaggerate about the positions of these mayors to engender an emotional response rather than accurately describe a disagreement over proper interpretation and protection of a right. These mayors are no more anti-Second Amendment than you are pro-gun violence.

  3. @Halifax – your “screaming fire” in a movie theater is not an argument for limitations in the First Amendment. First amendment protects “speech” (spoken, written, airwaves, etc.) by The People for and against government. If government declared all speech is “free” as long as do not mock or bad mouth the President then you would have a problem with that limitation. The same is with our Second Amendment. You cannot whittle it down and state you are for it.

  4. Tony, I’m afraid you’re wrong about that. The First Amendment protects free speech far beyond simply speech for or against the government. If I understand you correctly, you are saying that all rights in the Bill of Rights including Second Amendment rights are absolute. I’m afraid you’re wrong about that too.

  5. Good to know which mayors to support. Time to restore sanity to gun laws. This NRA is NOT the same as the one I used to belong to………..it’s gone way too far.
