Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has the story here. Out of the 12 Mayors they have endorsed, 8 of them are members of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, and two of the races are currently MAIG towns. Any victories here will be touted as victories against NRA and against the “gun lobby” and will be used to boost CeaseFire PA’s credibility and political capital.
As I’ve said, MAIG isn’t a joke. They are probing for vulnerabilities. If they find we’re vulnerable at the local level, you can expect consistent challenges to preemption, and expect Mayors to use their own credibility to destroy your Second Amendment rights at the State and National level. We have to be as vigilant at the local level as we are at the state and national level.
