Voters in IL Back Common Sense Leadership on Gun Violence

By MikeBloomberg.com - FEB. 26, 2013

The following is Mayor Bloomberg's statement on the special election in Illinois' 2nd Congressional District.

"This is an important victory for common sense leadership on gun violence, a problem that plagues the whole nation. And it's the latest sign that voters across the country are demanding change from their representatives in Washington - not business as usual. As Congress considers the President's gun package, voters in Illinois have sent a clear message: we need common sense gun legislation now. Now it's up to Washington to act."
