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.
