Praise for Mayor Morrissey for leaving anti-gun group

July 10, 2013

I want to take this opportunity and thank Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey (I) for not just attending the Rockford Tea Party’s concealed carry town hall meeting in Loves Park June 22, but for publicly stating he has left New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

While it may have taken Mayor Morrissey some time to realize that Bloomberg’s group was more interested in denying the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens than it was in taking weapons away from criminals and gangs, it is a good thing he has rebuked Bloomberg and his anti-gun group.

I hope that in time other Illinois politicians, namely Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn (D), will come to the same realization as Mayor Morrissey has and embrace not only the Second Amendment, but concealed carry as well.

    I also am glad he left. One thing never forget as supporters of the 2nd amendment. Mayor Morrissey just wet his finger and held it in the air to see what way the prevailing winds are blowing. Anyone really believe he belonged to Marxist Bloomberg group for how many years and had no idea what its goal was??

    Has anyone actually seen a document that states he left MAIG? And I agree with lostone, what took him so long?
