Thanksgiving for the National Rifle Association is a good time to give thanks to the end of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s reign.

The Second Amendment group on Tuesday used its Thanksgiving message to slam the co-founder of Mayors Against Illegal Guns and his fun-limiting attacks on fatty foods like those on the Thanksgiving table of many Americans.

“Bloomberg is full of stuffing,” said the NRA under a cartoon picture of the lame duck mayor dressed as a turkey wearing a Pilgrim hat.

“This Thanksgiving, Mayor Bloomberg has found yet another way to put a damper on a favorite American holiday,” said the release from the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.

“While most people will spend the day relaxing with friends and family watching football and eating too much, billionaire Bloomberg will be busy attacking our freedoms. Let’s face it, a Bloomberg Thanksgiving is already a drag — no soda, no dessert, and no ‘trans-fatty sides.’ Now he wants to turn Thanksgiving table talk to curtailing our Second Amendment rights. America has had enough of Bloomberg’s nanny state and his gun-grabbing mayors,” said the NRA.
