Angus King has accepted financial help from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s PAC.

Bloomberg, one of the nation’s most extreme gun control advocates, certainly will expect King’s support with all anti-gun legislation that might come before the U.S. Senate if he is elected.

King likely has relinquished his independence over this issue.

I urge all Maine voters who cherish their Second Amendment rights for hunting, recreational shooting and self-protection to carefully reconsider their approval of King in this election.
