New York State Assemblyman Kieran Lalor also released a statement, saying the group named other criminals, as well as suicides.
"Bloomberg's apology is disingenuous at best," he said. "He has been misleading the American people to score political points. A quick look at the list would have revealed there were many criminals on it. It includes a man shot by police while threatening to kill a two-year-old girl he had snatched from her mother in a parking lot. This is a group that doesn't distinguish between a gun being used to save a kidnapped child and the victim of a crime. They're just concerned about making a political statement."
