Mayor Fuhriman Joins Mayor Bloomberg

November 30th, 2006 by Halli

By George Reimann

New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a controversial
crusade to reduce crime by getting “illegal guns” off the streets and is
expanding this effort to reach a national audience by persuading other
mayors to join his effort. Bloomberg claims guns are obtained in other
states and smuggled into his city.

To “prove” his claims he hired private
investigators to go into gun shops in southern states and break Federal
laws by falsifying paperwork to obtain firearms to bring into
NYC. Bloomberg has no authority to order such activity and the BATFE has
complained that Bloomberg has already compromised some of their
investigations. But it seems BATFE is disinclined to prosecute these

“Illegal guns” have not been defined. Until a definition is offered one
should assume an illegal gun is any firearm not under the control of law
enforcement or the military. In New Orleans, after Katrina, all
civilian-owned guns were declared to be illegal.

Bloomberg’s anti-gun agenda has enticed more than 100 mayors to join the
crusade and sign “The Pledge.” The list of mayors is dominated by the big
city leftists, which is to be expected, but it also includes red state
Republicans. Only one Idaho mayor has bought into the anti-gun media hype:
Mayor Jared Furiman. Now it remains to be seen how Mayor Furiman will put
his anti-gun philosophy to work in Idaho Falls.
