New York City’s Mayor Mike Bloomberg came out swinging today in the aftermath of the horrific movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado. He pressed the presidential candidates to go beyond the typical political response to the situation and propose solutions. Mayor Bloomberg is a vocal proponent for tougher gun control laws.
