Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Group Honors Terrorists As ‘Victims Of Gun Violence’ – Uproar
The reference is to the revelation that Mayors Against Illegal Guns included Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in readings of a list citing so-called “gun violence victims.”
News that the group had honored a terrorist made national headlines, forcing an apology within hours. The flurry of criticism wasn’t deterred though, with dozens of outlets blasting the critical error. The pushback against New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns Group continues, with the National Rifle Association unleashing a devastating web video against the anti-gun group.
Two mayors, once part of the coalition have left the group sighting concerns that the group illegally used government resources to promote its agenda, raising further questions about the relationship between the New York City and the mayor’s self-funded 501(c)(4).
