    Baltimore, MD - Mayor Sheila Dixon (D) has accepted a plea deal for perjury charges stemming from accusations that she did not report gifts she received from a local developer. In a teary announcement yesterday, she resigned her post as the Mayor of Baltimore as part of the plea.

    As you will recall, Dixon, a vocal member of “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” was convicted last month of pocketing gift cards intended for Baltimore’s needy families.

    Dixon now joins the ranks of disgraced anti-gun politicians like former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) of Detroit. Perhaps these folks should focus on abiding by the law themselves instead of persecuting law-abiding citizens.

    “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” (MAIG) was founded and is funded by activist anti-gun billionaire and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a front group to lobby Congress to oppose important pro-gun reforms and support new federal gun control restrictions.

    Despite its very misleading name, this national group of anti-gun mayors has lobbied Congress against national reciprocity of state Right-to-Carry permits, against much-needed reform of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE), for regulating gun shows out of existence, and for repealing the Tiahrt Amendment that protects the privacy rights of law-abiding gun owners and limits disclosure of sensitive firearm trace data to protect law enforcement personnel and protect lawful gun manufacturers from bogus lawsuits.

    My experience is that people who "hate guns" or "fear guns" (including one of my sisters) are the same people I would least trust with owning or possessing a gun.

    Remember some years back, the anti-gun newspaper columnist who shot a kid in his back yard for trespassing in his pool. . . .

    Yes, Carl Rowan was a good example of why the anti-gun crowd cannot be trusted. NEVER forget that it is REALLY about PEOPLE CONTROL!

    Best line from the article.

    Oh no. Not the Nazi analogy again. Please don't trivialize what happened in the Holocaust by going down that road.
