Mayor, resign from anti-gun group

I was shocked to discover our mayor of Elgin, David Kaptain, is a member of Michael Bloomberg's Mayor Against Illegal Guns, (MAIG). I immediately sent the following email to Mayor Kaptain.

"I was both alarmed and disappointed to receive notification from the Illinois State rifle association that you were a member of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's MAIG!

"Of course, you know in this group's efforts to take away the Second Amendment, they have resorted to lies and deceit in their nationwide bus tour. The have called the Boston bomber a victim of gun violence and cite hundreds of other so called "victims" that were actually criminals shot by law enforcement officers.

"I am sure when many people voted for you they were totally unaware they were actually voting for Michael Bloomberg. This is indeed a pity. I urge you to stand up and be your own man and immediately resign from MAIG and go about the business of serving the people of Elgin."
