Then there’s the case of Wichita, Kan. Mayor Carl Brewer. When questioned about his listed involvement in Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Brewer said he did not even remember joining Mayors Against Illegal Guns in the first place. “I remember that the chief didn’t support it, and I don’t think we actually signed up,” Brewer told the Wichita Eagle.

Given the dubious track record that Mayors Against Illegal Guns has established in just the last few months, it is not out of the question to wonder just how many of the mayors that “signed” the letter sent to Sen. Portman actually knew of or supported the letter in the first place, and how many were simply used as unknowing pawns by Bloomberg in his ongoing quest to intrude into average Americans daily lives by curtailing their rights.

Bloomberg has shown time and again his lack of regard for the average American. He will stop at nothing to impose his totalitarian vision for the country on ordinary people, whether that means telling them what they can eat, or how they can exercise their Constitutional rights to protect their family. One thing is certain: If there is one person who has the best interests of Ohioans at heart, it is Ohio’s Senator Portman, not New York’s Mayor Bloomberg.
