A former mayor and member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns was sentenced Monday to 10 to 20 months in jail for intimidation with a firearm. Five years of probation, 50 hours of community service and $1,300 in fines and costs were tacked onto his sentence for the February incident.

Former Marcus Hook, Pa., Mayor James Schiliro had requested that a city police cruiser deliver former neighbor and love interest Nicholas Dorsamto to his home, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The mayor gave the 20-year-old alcohol, then refused to allow him to leave, firing a gun into a stack of papers. Schiliro eventually turned the gun on himself and threatened suicide, The Inquirer reported.

Schiliro wasn’t just a mayor but a member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns. He was also among 600 politicians who had signed a letter to Congress asking for stricter gun-control legislation, according to the National Review Online.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg founded Mayors Against Illegal Guns in 2006 along with then-Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.

Schiliro’s conviction marks the latest example of public figures pushing for ever-stricter gun control measures — as long as they don’t apply to them.

Like Hollywood actors, Bloomberg has been known to travel with armed security guards, all while claiming the country needs tough gun-control measures. U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has a concealed carry permit – while calling for laws banning all guns.

I wouldn’t deny any of these people the right to defend their lives. But I’d ask that they stop trying to deny me the means to defend my own.

    Michael, why didn’t you write an article about the ex-cop who killed a man for texting in a movie theater?

    1. Lance Brown says:

      Better yet Michael; write an article about liberal trolls. Maybe you could explain why they hide behind fake profiles and pretend to know the issues. Better yet, dive into the psychiatric characteristics of these low life, impotent freaks and explain their drive to live off of others hard work.

      Deflecting from a clear show of hypocrisy from the liberal base of whom you cheer and defend.
      Who would have predicted that?

  2. John Payne says:

    Now he will probably sue because the law wasn’t enacted which of course would have protected him from himself in this instance.

    Another crooked Democrat in the can……. Excellent!

    They are just hypocrites!
