New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is the most anti-gun person I have ever heard of. It seems the very mention of a private citizen owning a gun sends him into fits of rage and verbal attacks that remind one of Adolf Hitler. In fact, some of Bloomberg’s policies and actions also remind me of Hitler.
In his crusade against guns, Bloomberg and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino launched a campaign in 2006 called Mayors Against Illegal Guns. The organization of city mayors supports most gun control measures that anyone puts forth. They started out with 15 mayors. Today they have nearly 800 mayors that have signed up with the campaign.
Bloomberg has also been spending millions of his own dollars to campaign for control measures in other states such as Colorado. He has also been spending millions to fight against the campaigns of candidates in other states who support the Second Amendment, like what recently happened in an Illinois special election to replace former Rep Jesse Jackson Jr.
Now it seems that one of Bloomberg’s fellow mayors has been charged with a number of crimes including reckless endangerment which involved a GUN! Oh my, what will the anti-gun Fuhrer Bloomberg say about this?
The small borough of Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania lies along the Delaware River near the Pennsylvania and Delaware border. The mayor of the community of 2,400 people is 38 year old James Schiliro. Schiliro is a signed member of Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, although Bloomberg probably wishes he wasn’t.
According to the Delaware County District Attorney’s office, Schiliro had a local police officer pick a up 20 year old man and deliver him to the mayor’s house. The mayor then tried to get the underaged man drunk (you have to be 21 to drink in Pennsylvania. Once the young man was sufficiently intoxicated, Schiliro kept trying to force him to commit a variety of sexual acts with him, but the young man kept refusing.
Schiliro then retrieved a handgun from upstairs and used it to threaten and coerce the young man into having gay sex with him. The young man continued to fight off the advances, so Schiliro ended up retrieving 2 more handguns, which he threatened the young man with. At one point, Schiliro fired a shot inside the house to scare the young man into cooperating.
Schiliro has now been arrested and charged with official oppression, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, and furnishing a minor with alcohol. He was later released on $50,000 bail and ordered to turn over all of his guns and to have no contact with the 20 year old victim.
According to one report, Schiliro isn’t the only mayor in Bloomberg’s group to face legal issues. Other mayors have been charged with DUI, corruption, assaulting a police officer and child sex crimes. Gainesville, Florida Mayor Craig Lowe who appeared in an anti-gun ad with Bloomberg was caught in a drunken sleep behind the wheel of his wrecked car and was charged with DUI. Now one of Bloomberg’s anti-gun mayors is facing criminal charges involving a gun.
Remember the anti-gun ad that Bloomberg made using a bunch of Hollywood stars? And do you recall that many of those same stars made their living in violent movies involving guns? I sure hope the NRA and other Second Amendment groups pick up the story of Schiliro and use it along with the hypocritical Hollywood commercial and parade them all over the news and internet to undermine Bloomberg’s message and influence.
