An idea for Mayors FOR Guns

David mentioned, a while back, Mayor Joel Stoner, of Macks Creek, MO. Mayor Stoner advocates forming a group of mayors to act as a counterweight to NYC Mayor "Furious Mike" Bloomberg's Illegal Mayors Against Guns.

The City of Macks Creek has passed resolutions in support of firearms ownership. I personally have been talking to the NRA to form a Mayors who support gun rights, to counter Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns(MAIG).
I would hope the NRA gets behind Mayor Stoner, and puts some real resources into this effort.

If that happens, I have an idea they might consider.

Some large cities in the U.S. have designated themselves "sanctuary cities," in which foreign invaders . . . oops--I mean illegal aliens . . . oops--I mean "undocumented workers" are, by city policy, protected in their continued flaunting of U.S. immigration law. This, despite the fact that people here illegally tend to be responsible for a disproportionate amount of violent crime.

It is perhaps interesting to note that there seems to be a fairly high degree of intersection between mayors of "sanctuary cities," and members of Bloomberg's MAIG. Actually, perhaps it makes a twisted kind of sense for mayors who support more and more restrictive gun laws to also protect border violators. The more violent crime committed by these "undocumented workers," after all, the more violent crime the mayors can point to as evidence of the need for more gun laws.

But I digress.

My point is that a Mayors For Guns group could designate their own "sanctuary cities"--but not to protect border violators from prosecution for their crimes, but to protect owners of "undocumented firearms" (damn--I didn't invent the term) from prosecution under laws that infringe on that which shall not be infringed--all gun laws, in other words.

Just an idea.
