    Guess some of Virginia's mayors and this truck will have some sort of shindig.

    Seems like it's making its way south to mayors that support Bloomberg and are in his clan, or whatever he calls it.

    If I didn't think my blood pressure would set new records, I'd consider it. I don't want to argue, though.

    well.. I figured out why there is no other opinions...

    "Your comment has been submitted for review."

    It will never see the light of day.

    Also hardly a hint of grammatical accuracy in the bunch.

    They are desperate for new mayoral members - so many from the past have been indicted or all ready incarcerated.

    An addition 73 have quit in disgust:

    Largely in response to a recent NRA organized letter writing campaign, dozens of mayors have resigned from or distanced themselves from the MAIG while still in office. The NRA 's web site lists 73 mayors that have quit the MAIG, including 15 in Pennsylvania, alone.[13][14][15][16] Responses have been varied, including, announced resignations, requests to be removed from the MAIG's roster, or disavowals of ever joining the coalition. In one case, Mayor Orlando Ortega Jr. of Portales, New Mexico complained that the NRA listing of member mayors had incorrectly identified the mayor as being a member. Ortega was indeed listed as a MAIG member in a July 2009 MAIG-produced letter to congress.[17] One mayor mentioned that her reason for resigning was "...because she thought [MAIG] was attempting to erode all gun ownership, not just illegal guns."[18] In some other cases, mayors have claimed that MAIG has used their name without permission.[19][20][21][22][23]

    Hopefully, Bloomie or one of his henchmen will come by a gun show and try to make a straw purchase. The GA passed a law just special for him.

    Whether he chooses to come to Virginia or Richmond or not doesn't concern me at all. That would get plenty of media circus coverage and would only prove to help our cause - so bring it on Bloomie, bring it on.
