Bloomberg, Survivors of Tucson Push for Gun Control

Hizzoner’s group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, joined survivors of the 2011  Tucson massacre that killed six and seriously wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords  with an ad campaign that launched Sunday. The ad aired during the Olympics  and political talk shows. It notes that at current violence rates, 48,000  Americans will be killed with guns during the next President’s term. “That’s  three Aurora shootings every day,” said Bill Badger, a retired Army colonel who  was shot in the back of the head by Tucson gunman Jared Lee Loughner. – NYDN
