Gun Crime in Boston Spikes

[float=right]IMAGE(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u129/KameronsMamma/gun-1.jpg)[/float]In the last 3 days in Boston, 10 people have been shot and 2 have died from gun shot wounds. In all likelihood, all of these crimes were committed with illegal guns.

www.MayorsAgainstIllegalGuns.org has proposed Federal legislation that would help get illegal guns off the streets. Ask your Congressman, Senators and neighbors if they support it.

The NRA is one of the most powerful lobbies in the USA so we have a lot of work to do to get this passed. Scott Brown says he opposes Federal legislation on this issue because "it is a local issue." Mayors Tom Menino and Mike Bloomberg and mayors from 625 cities in the USA disagree with Scott Brown.
