New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg, as well as several House Democrats, are seizing on Friday’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn. to make the case for stricter gun control.
“President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown,” Bloomberg, a frequent advocate of stricter gun laws, said in a statement after the shooting, which killed 27 people, 20 of them children. “But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action.”
The New York City mayor’s office tweeted: “For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds.”

I believe the mass murdering accusations belong to both parties. Please. this is not a partisan issue. Banksters have ruined and armies have murdered and maimed under the umbrella of Democrats and Republicans.edit on 14-12-2012 by GrantedBail because: cuz
