Bloomberg group speaks with forked tongue
The NY Times doesn't note, of course, the two quotes in its puff-piece story:
"Members of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns insisted that they respected the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Mr. Bloomberg said he was not trying to curb existing gun rights. “That’s ideological nonsense and we’ve just got to move past it,” he said.
and later, after saying the Mayors announced a legislative task force....
"The task force says it will also “work to enact common sense measures” to stem the flow of illegal guns, officials said."
Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown also admitts that reinstating the Clinton AWB is on the group's agenda. See http://www.buffalonews.com/editorial/20070124/1036901.asp
