Although Mayor Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) has apologized for listing Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev as a victim of gun violence at their Concord, NH rally on June 18, it is now apparent that the “list of names” was pregnant with criminals and cop killers as well.
In fact, the New Hampshire Republican State Committee is pointing out the list also included Christopher Dorner, the former Los Angeles police officer who went on a killing spree before finally dying in a fire after a gun fight with police. Dorner killed two police officers.
The name of Kevin Bailey was also read in Concord at the gun control rally. Bailey died in a shootout after exiting his car in Solon, OH and opening fire on police.
Rally organizers also read the name of Kurt Myers, a 64-year old man who was killed by police after he fired on them. The police were searching for Myers on suspicion that he had killed four people.
If Tsarnaev, Dorner, Bailey, and Myers made MAIG’s list of victims of gun violence, what good is the list?
