Bloomberg’s Gun Control Group Wanted to Confiscate Guns From Law-Abiding Citizens

Mayor John Tkazyik, who serves in one of the largest cities in the Hudson Valley, wrote an op-ed for the local Poughkeepsie Journal in which he claims Michael Bloomberg’s gun control organization MAIG (Mayors Against Illegal Guns) “intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.”

In his column, Tkazyik explains why he left the organization (or as he says in a nod to President Reagan, the organization left him), claiming the group had simply become “a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda.”  He adds that MAIG was intent on “violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.”

While renouncing his membership with MAIG, along with noting that 50 other mayors have done the same, Tkazyik proudly proclaims that he is still a lifelong member of the NRA.

Via the Poughkeepsie Journal:

I’m the mayor of one of the largest cities in the Hudson Valley, just 90 minutes north of New York City. I’m a life member of the National Rifle Association and a former member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, or MAIG, started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2006.

I’m no longer a member of MAIG. Why? Just as Ronald Reagan said of the Democratic Party, it left me. And I’m not alone: Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did. MAIG became a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda — violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and taking resources away from initiatives that could actually work to protect our neighborhoods and save precious lives.

The mayor goes on to explain that MAIG wasn’t simply interested in ridding criminals of their illegal weapons, but that they intended to confiscate guns from legal gun owners.

It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns; that under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens. I don’t believe, never have believed and never will believe that public safety is enhanced by encroaching on our right to bear arms, and I will not be a part of any organization that does.

The concept of ridding legal gun owners of their weapons is a staple of the left in New York.  Just after the Sandy Hook massacre, Governor Cuomo put confiscation and “forced buyback” of guns on the table.  After the SAFE Act was signed into law and lawmakers were debating the merits, a video surfaced of Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin producing an actual document, a Democrat wish list for gun control, which included confiscation of so-called “assault weapons,” as well as the confiscation of clips.

In the clip seen below, Democrat Assemblyman Joseph Lentol can be heard pleading with McLaughlin that he not share the list “because it has the capacity to dampen the enthusiasm of compromise.”  To which McLaughlin replies, “It sure does, when we talk about the confiscation of assault weapons.”

And beyond simple rhetoric, actual gun confiscation notices started going out in Bloomberg’s city.

Cuomo and other New York Democrats like to openly discuss confiscation of weapons in the Empire State, and then when anybody stands up against it they frame them as “extremists,” no longer welcome here.  But it’s actually the Second Amendment-trampling Democrats who do indeed want to take them that are the problem.

Mayor Tkazyik also notes a bigger issue with infringing on law-abiding citizens Second Amendment rights.  A reality that extreme liberals choose not to address.

“Gun control will actually make a bad situation worse,” he writes.

When you disarm the law-abiding, you simply empower the criminals.
