Bloomberg to air anti-gun ad with VT victims' families
New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has reportedly teamed with the families of those killed in the April 16, 2007 shootings at Virginia Tech to produce a political ad calling for tighter controls on the sale of firearms at gun shows. According to the Associated Press, Bloomberg will unveil the ad at a press conference in Arlington on Monday, April 13. This is not the first time Bloomberg has decried Virginia's gun laws. In 2007, Bloomberg tussled publicly with then-Attorney General Bob McDonnell after Bloomberg sent NYPD officers to the Commonwealth to investigate guns-for-drugs trades, and sued six Virginia gun shops for selling weapons to alleged New York drug dealers.
