    Bloomberg To Fund Anti-Gun Ad Campaign

    Marcia Kramer
    Reporting

    (CBS) JERSEY CITY, N.J. Mayor Michael Bloomberg and a coalition of 214 mayors are using the Virginia Tech massacre to pressure Congress to give local cops the information they need to trace illegal guns used in crimes.

    CBS 2 has also learned that they're also launching a TV ad campaign starting Sunday.

    "We're fighting criminals and illegal guns. Why is Congress fighting us?" Bloomberg said Wednesday.

    The ads will start running in four days in New York, Washington and the congressional districts of key gun advocates.

    "I don’t want my officers to have their hands tied when it comes to having to deal with the issue of illegal guns for criminals," Bloomberg said.

    The ads are funded by Bloomberg, who said he will personally spend whatever it takes to stop a bill that would allow the feds to withhold crucial information on illegal guns needed by local cops.

    "In terms of how much money to spend I don't know," Bloomberg said. "The last time I was on a campaign I spent $85 million."

    Bloomberg said the Virginia Tech massacre that resulted in 33 deaths should get everyone behind his illegal gun crusade.

    "Every day 30 Americans are murdered," he said. "If one day is cause for you to think, what about 365 days?"

    Carole Stiller is with the Million Mom March, a group with members who have lost loved ones to gun violence. She said she doesn’t think the Virginia Tech shooter should have had the right to get a gun.

    "Because he wanted it and it was his right to have it," Stiller said. "Well, it's our right and it was the 32 other people's rights to not have someone come on campus and shoot them."

    The Virginia Tech shooting also reverberated in the presidential race. Trying to woo conservatives, the formerly anti-gun Rudy Giuliani said he supports the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

    But Democrats Hillary Clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama steered clear of the issue, saying only that the massacre was a tragedy.

    I hate this asshole, he'll fund this anti gun add campaign but he won't even pay give the NYPD a pay raise, begining pay rate for NYPD is less the NYC Gardners :ugh:

    I wasn't aware that the feds tried to keep information about illegal guns secret, or is this just his way of trying to achieve some national database?

    thats what i think. and how is congress fighting them on "illegal gun control?" they want to make scary looking rifles and magazines w/ more than 10 rounds illegal. none of that has to do with illegal guns

    ok, then I have a better idea! Make all guns legal so that none are illegal and therefore we don't have to worry about combating illegal guns. :hsd:

    I wonder if he realizes the guns used by Cho in the Virginia Tech shootings were all legally bought by someone who had a background check that came up clean.

    What a moran.

    I don't see that explicitly written in the constitution.

    THIS POST WAS NOT MEANT TO BELITTLE THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO DIED IN ANY WAY. ONLY STATING THAT THE RIGHT TO NOT GET SHOT IS NOT IN THE CONSTITUTION.

    why dont they introduce a criminal registry... that way they get all criminals to register their details like phone number, address, next of kin etc... then they can keep track of the criminals. :bigthumb: im brilliant.

    tho obviously criminals arent going to register voluntarily with no incentive... so they should offer tax cuts (or a free boat) to those that register.

    im going to quit my job and go into politics, its obvious i was born for it!

    I read that and was thinking that a tax cut alone wouldn't sucker crooks, but a free boat?! Who can resist?

    My understanding is that bloomberg wants blanket access to atf trace data instead of the current setup of only being able to access such data relating to an ongoing investigation.

    I know, hence the "not from the constitution" part.

    They always have the videos on the "World's Wildest Police Videos" shows where the cops sent out notifications to a bunch of people with warrants that they won a free cruise. Then when the people showed up they got arrested.

    Isn't that technically entrapment?
    Not that I care really.
