‘Mayor Against Illegal Guns’ Arrested In Gun-Related Incident [Video]

Marcus Hook PA mayor arrested in gun incident

Marcus Hook, PA — A member of the Michael Bloomberg-sponsored gun control organization “Mayors Against Illegal Guns” has been arrested and charged in connection with a handgun incident at his home.

James Schiliro, a.k.a. Jay Schiliro, the mayor of Marcus Hook, a small town in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, faces charges of official oppression, reckless endangerment, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, and furnishing a minor with alcohol. He surrendered to authorities on Thursday morning, and his attorney declared that “we intend to fight these charges.”

Schiliro, 38, allegedly ordered a local police officer to bring a 20-year-old male friend to his home, where the mayor plied him with alcohol, and made sexual advances which the man refused. Schiliro allegedly brandished several handguns and fired one of them into the floor in an apparent attempt to intimidate the young man, who reportedly was in fear of his life.

The mayor was freed on $50,000 bail and told to stay away from the alleged victim and give up his stash of firearms.

Schiliro, a Republican, has refused requests by town officials to step down, and he intends to continue to run in the May 21 contested mayoral primary. Mayors Against Illegal Guns reportedly dropped him immediately from the list of coalition supporters when this news emerged, however, and he no longer appears on the website of the organization of approximately 800 mayors, mostly Democrats, which is led by NYC Mayor Bloomberg.

Schiliro isn’t the only member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns who has run into trouble with the law. For example, Craig Lowe, the Democrat major of Gainesville, Florida, who appears in a gun-control commercial with Mayor Bloomberg, was recently arrested for DUI at the scene of a crash when the Highway Patrol found him asleep behind the wheel of his car. Other elected officials in the group have allegedly been been charged with corruption, assaulting a police officer, and child sex crimes.

    Too funny, that's what we all need to worry about, a guys political affiliation during an alleged felony? Are there any editors left out there? HellllllOOOO!

    These mayors who are cozying up to bloomberg and oblowhole will naturally exempt them selves from any gun restrictions. I will not comply but I will resist any infringement on my second amendment!

    If it wasn't for the government, people would not believe that this could happen. Just amazing isn't it ? lol

    Soros, Bloomberg, Feinstein, and kooks like them try to tame their OWN DEMONS by passing laws that restrict decent law-abiding citizens who don't need a nanny to provide a moral compas. Expect more stories like this. It's not about "gun-control" it ALL about people control.

    Didn't the word "MAYOR" come from ancient Greek meaning….."self serving crooks"!

    Sounds like we should perform universal background checks on all elected officials.

    No wonder these people want to ban guns. They assume we are all as foolish and incompetent with them as they are.

    according to Larry Sinclair, Barrack Obama is a crack head. He and Barry smoked crack in the back of a Limo and had sex. I have no reason to doubt Larry as his videos have so much detail in them, it would be hard to make up. With that said, your wish has already come true and you didn't even know.
