Bloomberg: Gun Control Should Be Obama’s ‘No. 1 Agenda’

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg argued that President Obama should push for tougher gun control laws during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

“He’s the commander in chief as well as the consoler in chief,” Bloomberg said. “This should be his No. 1 agenda. He’s the president of the United States and if he does nothing during his second term something like 48,000 Americans will be killed with illegal guns –that is roughly the number of Americans killed in the whole Vietnam War.”
