According to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, lawmakers who are “going with the NRA” are “going against the lives of our children…”
Speaking on behalf of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Bloomberg touched upon his vow to target legislators who refuse to support tougher gun laws.
“What I have said is that we are going to support those people who want to stop the killing of 12,000 of our citizens every year or the 19,000 that commit suicide with handguns every year.”
Referencing recent gun-related tragedies, the mayor, in an effort to manipulate election results, pledged, “we’re going to do everything we can to make sure that somebody else gets elected who wants to see that we stop this carnage.”
Recent reports have surfaced that MAIG plans to target Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR), who opposes stricter gun control legislation, with a vast television, radio and direct-mail campaign.
