MAIG,

I do not support your efforts. I oppose efforts to require private sellers with minimal sales (non-dealers) to perform background checks. I am proud that gun shows are regularly conducted in Forest Park.

If you really want to reduce illegal gun sales, perhaps your energy would be better focused in petitioning the BATF to end its illegal gunwalking. Because of Operation Fast and Furious, Brian Terry was murdered with a weapon sold by our own government.

Your organization claims that the goal is “protecting the rights of Americans to own guns, while fighting to keep criminals from possessing guns illegally,” yet none of your “Coalition Principles” further any such protections. One of the principles is to “keep lethal, military style weapons off our streets.” First, I am awestruck that you would focus on “lethal guns.” It seems that guns’ lethality is the point of their design.

That you believe a gun’s “military style” makes it more lethal is asinine, and however you would define such style does not make guns so designed illegal. Your stated goals–protecting legal ownership and eliminating criminals from illegally possessing guns–are belied by your specific objectives. What you propose would convert what is currently legal possession into criminal behavior. You may have fooled other mayors, and you may have other fools who agree with your actual objectives, but you haven’t fooled me.

That your organization was founded by Michael Bloomberg, who criminalized the sale of sodas of a certain size, is telling. It is impossible to believe such a man is really concerned with the protections afforded by our Constitution.


David Lockhart, Mayor
Forest Park, Georgia

:congrats:

You might want to check out the crime stats for Forest Park before you start packing.
Yea, what do crime stats matter when you are talking about a place that close to Atlanta and the airport. You know those are not real stats and if you have a problem with what this mayor said you and I are not going to get along. I am going to stop now because I like this place. Bye

I didn't say anything about the mayor.

We may be facing a second American Civil War. The Southern states generally have less anti gun laws, and some of the states do not have state income tax. The weather is better too, climate change not withstanding.

At least ONE Mayor has the intestinal fortitude to tell the truth.
