Will they ever stop? It looks like these mayors are trying to push for more federal gun controls. They have their own jobs in their own towns. I guess they're not content with their own mess, they want to ruin it somewhere else.

ANTI-GUN MAYORS PLOT DEMISE OF GUN RIGHTS
Fresh off his appearance at a recent hearing in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he railed against prohibiting the release of sensitive gun trace data for his efforts to sue the firearm industry out of existence, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R) is not relenting in his anti-gun crusade. As reported by The New York Times (April 19, 2006) and elsewhere, a dozen mayors are planning to convene at the Mayor’s residence next week to discuss "reducing gun violence." Among the attendees will be Anthony Williams, Mayor of "Gun Ban City," a.ka., Washington, D.C. However, based upon the Bloomberg’s recent screeds against NRA, and in favor of gun control, coupled with the roster of anti-gun mayors planning to join Hizzoner, the outcome of this meeting is easily predictable-a united call for more restrictions on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Like most anti-gun politicians, Bloomberg blames violence in his city on guns from other jurisdictions, and thus, is campaigning to enact additional federal gun control laws. Rather than acknowledging the reams of evidence that no gun control law anywhere has ever reduced crime and that enforcing existing law against criminals does, Bloomberg prefers to score cheap political points by scapegoating law-abiding gun owners for the acts of criminals.

By Bloomberg's reasoning, he ought to make his jurisdiction very friendly to firearms owners, so that the Evil Bad Guys will buy their guns there and then go commit their crimes in other, more restrictive jurisdictions.

Looks to me like he's just preparing for the next step in his political career. Can't be mayor forever. What other mayor made a name as an anti-gun crusader and became Senator.....Diane Fiendstein comes to mind.
