New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called for President Obama and Mitt Romney to offer up a national policy to put a dent in gun violence, during his public address, Friday (July 20).
Bloomberg spoke on the matter via his weekly appearance on WOR Radio, hours after a dozen people were killed when a gunman in Colorado opened fire at a movie theater. “Soothing words are nice, but maybe it’s time that the two people who want to be President of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it, because this is obviously a problem across the country,” he said. “There are so many murders with guns every day — it’s just got to stop.
“Instead of the two people – President Obama and Governor Romney – talking in broad things about (how) they want to make the world a better place, okay, tell us how. This is a real problem. No matter where you stand on the Second Amendment, no matter where you stand on guns, we have a right to hear from both of them concretely, not just in generalities – specifically what are they going to do about guns?”
