Member of Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns Dropped After Weapons Accusation
Michael Bloomberg's Mayors Against Illegal Guns has taken Marcus Hook, PA, Mayor James Schiliro off their list of supporting mayors, now that he was allegedly involved in an incident involving a handgun and false imprisonment.
38-year old Schiliro allegedly had a police officer "pick up a 20-year old" male and bring him to the Mayor's home. Once there, Schiliro allegedly provided the under-age male with alcohol and asked for sexual favors.
When the 20-year old refused to cooperate, Schiliro allegedly lost his temper, grabbed a handgun, and fired "it into some papers."
The charges filed against Schiliro include "unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, false imprisonment, official oppression, and furnishing alcohol to a minor."
According to the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), Schiliro is but one of a number of current and former members of Mayors Against Illegal Guns who have had a run-in with the law. SAF highlights these things in their "Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors" project.
