There’s 12,000 people that are going to get killed this year with guns and 19,000 that are going to commit suicide with guns, and we’re not going to walk away from those efforts (to ban illegal guns). …This is a scourge on the country that we just have to make sure that we get under control and eliminate.

New York City mayor MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, on reports that both his office and the offices of Mayors Against Illegal Guns — which he founded — received threatening letters laced with ricin poison.

If a gun nut can’t kill you with a gun, he’ll find some other way.

Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, says she intends to introduce a gun control bill on the first day of the next Congress. “It can be done,” she said on “Meet the Press” Sunday.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also among politicians calling for more gun control, saying it should be President Obama’s number one agenda.

Wonkblog notes that media coverage of gun control tends to fade about a month after a major shooting occurs. “But might this time be different? Perhaps. After all, the slaughter of innocent schoolchildren has no doubt gripped the media and public in a way that even the attempted murder of a member of Congress didn’t,” Danny Hayes writes.
