Michael Bloomberg needs more thorough background check system for his ‘Mayors Against Illegal Guns’

The wind-up:

The Delaware County DA’s office has announced that James Schiliro, the mayor of Marcus Hook, has been arrested.

He is facing multiple criminal charges, including reckless endangerment. Schiliro surrendered to police early Thursday morning.
According to court documents, the mayor is accused of having a police officer pick up a 20-year-old friend in a police cruiser and bring him to his home. Inside, the mayor allegedly served the minor alcohol and asked for sexual favors.

When the man refused, the mayor allegedly told him he was a hostage and fired his gun inside of the home, court documents said.

And the pitch: Schiliro is a member of Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns.”

Reports say Schiliro’s a Republican, but he sounds more like a No Labels man.


Ballistics tests done by the investigators confirmed a bullet found in a wall in Schiliro’s home did match one of the guns. Schiliro sold eight weapons shortly after the incident, according to court records.

It’s possible Schiliro accidentally fired the gun, especially if he got his firearm safety tips from one of Bloomberg’s gun control ads.

Schiliro has been removed from the Mayors Against Illegal Guns list of supporters.

In related stories, the Mayors Against Illegal Guns should encourage its members and former members to also be against illegal drunk driving, corruption, bribes and child sex crimes.

Bloomberg obviously needs stricter background checks for his gun control bunch.

Count me in as a supporter of a different organization: Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors.
