MAIG and Mastercard planned to intimidate gun makers
I discovered that Judicial Watch used NY Public Records laws (and a lawsuit) to get the city-maintained records of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which was from the outset hosted on NY City servers. There are some interesting documents in there that I will post from time to time. This one is an email exchange (read bottom message first) between Mark Glaze, director of MAIG, and John Feinblatt, head of Everytown for Gun Safety, both being of course Bloomberg creations. Feinblatt reports that the gun manufacturers will be at some manner of negotiations and it is necessary to weaken them beforehand, and Glaze replies that Mastercard is willing to help. Sounds like an early, and nongovernmental, form of Operation Chokepoint.
