Mayor Michael Bloomberg has always been a strong advocate of gun control. In the wake of the tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, Bloomberg has renewed his call to enact more stringent gun control legislation.
Gun safety has always been a front-and-center issue for the mayor. He's the co-chair of Mayor's Against Illegal Guns, and he's worked — though not always successfully — to restrict handgun ownership in New York City in his three terms as mayor.
Since the mayor seems to have the wind in his sails on this one, we want to know what you think. His causes are often controversial in the city, and among the voters of the five boroughs he alternates between being worshipped and reviled.
Do you agree with Bloomberg on gun control? Or are stricter gun laws missing the point?
