Stop New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Anti-Gun Crusade!

As you know, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is heading a national cabal of anti-gun mayors called "Mayors Against Illegal Guns."

The main objective of this coalition is to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment. This critically important legislation protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners, the safety of law enforcement officers, and the integrity of criminal investigations by preventing inappropriate and public release of confidential firearm trace data except in the course of a bona fide criminal investigation.

Law enforcement has been steadfast in joining NRA in support of preserving the Tiahrt Amendment. Both the BATFE and the Fraternal Order of Police (which Bloomberg called a "fringe organization") strongly support keeping this sensitive data private.

Bloomberg, however, is undeterred and he is continuing to try to expand his anti-gun coalition. In addition to the mayors of cities in Ohio listed below, who are currently members of this coalition, Bloomberg is increasingly pressuring more mayors in your state to join his efforts, engaging in a full court press!

In order to combat Bloomberg's crass, anti-gun efforts, we need your help!

Using the sample text below, we need you to contact those mayors in your state who have already joined the Bloomberg coalition and ask them to withdraw. AND, we need you to contact your mayor and urge him/her to resist pressure to join Mayor Bloomberg's efforts to restrict our rights.

Working together, we can ensure passage of the Tiahrt Amendment and protect the privacy of lawful gun owners and the lives of law enforcement.

Please contact the mayors listed above, as well as your own mayor TODAY, and encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners in Ohio to do the same.

Yours in freedom,
NRA-ILA

SAMPLE LETTER TO MEMBER OF BLOOMBERG COALITION

Date

Your Name
Your Address
Your City, State, Zip

The Honorable Mayor's Name
Address
City, State, Zip

Dear Mayor XXXXXX;

As a resident of CITY and your constituent, I strongly urge you to reconsider your decision to join Mayor Bloomberg's anti gun "Mayors Against Illegal Guns" coalition, and remove yourself as a member.

Mayor Bloomberg and his coalition allies have misrepresented themselves to the mayors of America and its citizens. This effort is simply another attempt to shift blame for violent crime from criminals to law-abiding gun owners. This is gun control, not crime prevention.

Mr. Bloomberg's tactics do not target illegal guns, but rather honest citizens and lawful dealers, essentially criminalizing all gun ownership. This coalition makes no distinction whatsoever between law-abiding gun owners and violent criminals.

Instead of being a part of a misguided coalition and advocating attacks against law-abiding gun owners, I ask you to direct your efforts towards strict enforcement of existing laws in our own city to ensure both our safety and civil rights.
