Gary Mayor Appears In Gun Law PSA
The mayor of Gary appears with several other mayors, in a new public service announcement that urges Congress to toughen gun laws. The ad features Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson, along with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg. It is sponsored by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a gun control group founded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The group wants Congress to take action to pass legislation to require background checks for all gun sales, to limit military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and to make gun trafficking a federal crime. The PSA is made up of very short snippets of comments from the mayors, including Freeman-Wilson, and can be seen in its entirety at: demandaction.org/mayors.
