NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg is paying for ads to run in Virginia urging a ban on private sales.
New York’s mayor and relatives of Virginia Tech massacre victims are releasing a new television ad next week urging the state to close a gun show loophole.
The second anniversary of the shooting is next Thursday.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg will join victims’ relatives in Arlington on Monday to release the ad.
Two quick things:
- The Virginia Tech shooter did not buy his guns at a gun show or through a private sale.Â This ad serves no purpose other than to use the victims to advance a political agenda.
- The timing was picked for no other reason than public relations grandstanding considering the Virginia General Assembly went out of session in February.Â In fact, they met for the last time this week just to review vetoes and actually overrode two vetoes of pro-gun legislation.
