Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York is running out of ammunition in his campaign for gun control. The public has moved on.
An Illinois mayor said he's dropped his membership with Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group started by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, because its title doesn't match its agenda. It's too anti-Second Amendment, he said.
Mayor Larry Morrissey, noting that the city has one of the highest crime rates in Illinois, said the city was forced to reduce its police force in part because of pension costs.
"Do I think something's going to get done? No. It's an election year," Morrissey said.
