Local mayors in MAIG

Most of the local (McHenry County and northern Illinois) mayors and village presidents have been smart enough not to fall for Mayor Bloomberg's anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG)..

But there are a few who didn't join the ranks of the "smart enough".For example,

Chicago's Mayor, Rahm Emanuel (of course)
Deerfield's Mayor, Harriet Rosenthal
Elburn's Village President, David Anderson
Elgin's Mayor, David J. Kaptain
Evanston's Mayor, Elizabeth Tisdahl
Hampshire's Village President, Doug Maxnincik
Highland Park's Mayor, Nancy Rotering
Lake Zurich's Village President, Suzanne Brandint
Lake in the Hills' (former) Village President, Edwin Plaza *
Pingree Grove's Mayor, Greg Marston

* Did Plaza join MAIG individually? Or did LITH join? (Marston's name is currently on the MAIG list of members.)

Do you know any of those people? There's not much chance of inserting a little sense in the skull of Rahm Emanuel, but is there hope with any of the others?

MAIG is not just against illegal guns. It is against all guns (and gun owners).

For some interesting reading, learn more about MAIG's "playbook", Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging. The NRA renames is Anti-Gun Hate Speech for Beginners. An examination of the "playbook" appears in the November 2013 issue of the NRA's America's 1st Freedom magazine.
