Mayors Against Illegal Guns

Mayors Against Illegal Guns- a group of more than 400 mayors led by NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg- pushing back hard against a U.S. Senate measure that would allow gun owners to carry their concealed weapons across state lines by requiring states to honor permits issued by other states.

The group drafted a letter and securing hundreds of mayors' signatures in an effort to defeat the measure, which is being introduced as an amendment to a defense-spending bill. They argue that it would make it much more difficult for police trying to determine who is carrying guns legally.
