Illinois mayor leaves bloombergs mayors against illegal gun group

Illinois mayor leaves Bloomberg's anti-gun group, citing agenda


An Illinois mayor said he's dropped his membership with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group started by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, because its title doesn't match its agenda. It's too anti-Second Amendment, he said.

"I've dropped out of a group called Mayors Against Illegal Guns," said Larry Morrissey, an independent mayor from Rockford, Ill., The Daily Caller reported. "The reason why I joined the group in the first place is because I took the name for what it said. Against 'illegal' guns."

He made the announcement at a Rockford tea party town hall meeting over the weekend. His remarks were met by loud applause, The Daily Caller said.

"The challenge that we see day in and day out in the city of Rockford is not dealing primarily with assault weapons or machine guns, automatic weapons," he said. "It's dealing with a typical handgun. All of those typical weapons are usually in the hands of people who are prohibited from having them."

Mr. Morrissey said the original mission of the group changed over time.

"So, that's why I dropped out," he said, in The Daily Caller. "The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens. We should be focusing our enforcement on folks who have no right to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise."
